    I see some familiar names there. What's been going on?

    •  I should have just kept my mouth shut, probably (1+ / 0-)

      There's nothing I can prove about anything--all innuendo.  It has to be taken in a broader context of things that have been going on a long time.  Comments and diaries started containing indirect references to things in my private life--indications that I had been spied on--and things that I took as continued threats if I don't pay money.  It's a long story and extremely strange and improbable, so that a summary can't come close to capturing it.  I go for long times without responding at all, in hopes it will stop, but recently I feel in such immediate danger that I thought to take the opportunity of this diary to at least register publicly something of the trouble.  One thing, like so much on the internet, it is all smoke and mirrors and I can't say with any certainty what is actually going on.  I am quite sure, though, that something is.

      Thanks so much for responding.  I wish I could ask you to help me in some concrete way, but I have no idea how.

        I understand the impulse to get paranoid. As you may know, all the major Soapblox meta wars have begun as innuendo, but as we saw with (for example) the recent ugly UGOG/FSZ dustup, that had serious consequences for people in real life on both sides.

        There are some serious blog wreckers out there (and they're not necessarily the ones who advertise as such) and I give them all a wide berth because I'm pretty sure I don't want to be dragged into anything.

        Now, I have also been told by some people (privately, in passing) that they did not feel comfortable in certain settings or with certain (unnamed and unknown to me) users.

        That's all I know and I did not pursue it, because this medium lends itself so readily to misperception and innuendo. I'm not a cop or a lawyer so I don't really know what to tell you.
