It’s time for some “real talk,” as they say.
I’ve been having a problem with people who are NOT my friends, and who only wish me ill, stalking me, and spying on me, on-line. To those people, here’s my message: don’t you have anything better to do? Why don’t you just get back to … whatever it is you’re supposed to be doing? Get OUT of my personal life. You are not a part of it, and are not welcome in my personal parts of the Internet.
How do I know you’ve been doing this? Well, (A) I know more about computers than any of you, and (B) I have a well-developed network of informants all over the place.
Duh — did you REALLY think you could outsmart me? You can’t.
By the way, now that I have told you, explicitly, to stop this behavior, it’s now even more clearly illegal than before for you to continue this invasion of my privacy. If you persist, I will quite likely know about it (see “A” and “B” above) — and I just might sue any or all of you, or flat-out have you arrested, if you keep breaking the law. In other words, I am TELLING you that, for your own legal protection, you should stop cyberstalking me. NOW. That includes your “creeping” my Facebook, by the way. Yes — I know about that, too.
On the other hand, if you’re someone I actually know, and like — or someone who genuinely wants to know me, but doesn’t wish me ill, as the people described above do — just shoot me an e-mail, at firstname.lastname@example.org, tell me something about who you are, a bit about you, and, once you’ve convinced me you aren’t in league with the nosy criminals described above, I’ll help you find what you’re looking for.
To this latter group of people — the ones not motivated by offensive nosiness — I apologize for the inconvenience. I wish the people described here, first, had not made this necessary.
