Can i ask for your opinion . . .




I have red several blogs now where the owner of the blog has been harassed and got threatning e-mails from readers of the blog.
Some so sever so they have stopped blogging. Shall we really let us be dictated by bullies?
Have you experienced to be harassed by someone visiting your blog?

Report, then delete and ignore their emails and comments.

Most will go away. If the threats become personal and speak of violence the authorities should be notified.

There is a blog script that can ban certain people's addresses and I'm still trying to figure out how to use it.

I suppose it would depend on whether or not I really felt threatened. I was never upset receiving crank calls - I thought they were quite funny. I might make a post, I might ignore and delete, I might encourage an onslaught of return spam - it would depend on who and what it was.
Some people want attention - they should be ignored.
Some are bullies.
Some are just playing a game.
I doubt any are truly a threat unless they happen to live close by or know who you are.

I always just harass them back and act like I'm laughing at them and their futile attempts. Basically I heckle them and they eventually get fed up and stop. Hey and I'm still alive...LOL

I haven't experienced anything like this yet.

I'm hoping my lucky streak continues.

Oh, and have a good day!

I like Hammer's answer. I refuse to cower if threatened; most jerks are only that way because they are somewhere else, and feel brave. They are usually not someone to fear, because they are usually cowards, that is why they hide behind the internet.

I haven't experienced any nastiness yet. Hopefully I won't - not too many read my blog anyway, so it shouldn't become a problem.

Yeah, I have had some trolls commenting on my blog and have got some e-mails that were insulting but not really threatening..I take threats seriously..if a sumbitch says he is planning on harming me and mine I believe him/her and just go buy some more ammo..
