Is cyper stalking dangerous?

In and of itself, no. But it is easy to underestimate the threat that a person known only through the Net can pose. It is rare, but "cyber-stalking" can enter the "real world" and then it poses a threat. Cyber-stalking can in some cases take place without your knowledge, and you may not know you have been stalked until the stalker enters the "real world." That's why it's important to know what information is available about you.

  • Cyberstalking is easily prevented by not freaking responding to the person, blocking the person, or hitting the OFF BUTTON! Why in the world do people even let such idiots bother them? Get a grip on reality people! Understand that the internet is full of people who are nut cases, not who they say they are, not what they say they are, etc. Real world stalking is a completely different animal.
