    stalking.  True stalking is not be made light of, it's a very serious thing involving sometimes the life of the person being stalked.

    We already have rules against being abusive to another poster.  We already can HR posters who are only there to harrass people.  And we already have rules about banning people who reveal a poster's true identity.

    Otherwise, we should all be able to be grownups here and even take and dish out a little heat from and to the people we have serious disagreements with and those who have serious disagreements with us, even repeatedly.  A stalking rule only encourages people to act like children.  Participation on Daily Kos is a voluntary affair.

    The best rule to follow on Daily Kos is "don't be a jerk".  This rule, I'm concerned, is a rule for children, and if you start acting towards posters as if they're children, they're more likely to act that way.
