    OR a big deal, Lith.

    If someone decides to make you an 'enemy' for any dumbass, psychopathic reason, they can begin to create any number of annoyances based on information they have about you and eventually escalating to physical harm if they are crazy enough or can incite anyone else who is crazy enough.

    It is indeed a big deal if you become inundated with crank phone calls, junk or threatening mail and many other damages, including being a consultant with clients who may not be in agreement with your online political point of view and yank their business from you which could be significant income causing you to lose your home or business, etc...

    THAT is a big deal! ;-)

      Who changed her home phone number because some psycho dude on an opera mailing list didn't like her and started making crank calls. Opera!

        Ask any teacher or professor who has been stalked, followed, harassed, etc. And not for the usual reasons such as wanting a better grade. In the final years of my teaching career, I began to refer to such students as the "super needy," and not a semester would go by without running into at least one. Your life can be made miserable by such folks, for they are relentless, and they think they are paying to get special attention from you. NEVER let them gain access to your home phone number, and don't give them your private e-mail address, either. And watch the parking lots at night.
