My Stalker

It’s time to see if my stalker has given up. On July 22, 2014, I changed the settings on this blog to require users to log in before they can vote on the thumbs up/thumbs down. I didn’t want to do that but my stalker forced my hand. He was coming to Green Comet and systematically giving my posts thumbs down. That was okay. Everyone should be allowed to express their honest opinion here. But my stalker went too far. He showed that he is either simply crass, or he was giving the thumbs down votes without reading the posts. On July 12 I put up a tribute post to Pery Burge, and my stalker immediately gave it his usual thumbs down. Who does that to a lovely tribute to a deceased person? My disgust meant it was time to act.

It was successful. My stalker was either too afraid or too lazy to register to continue his campaign. This site has been free of his distasteful contributions for over a month. Now it’s time to remove the barrier to voting and see whether we’ve shaken him off for good. The voting on thumbs up/thumbs down is again open to all without the requirement to register.

Click at will, and wish me luck.

      If only I had remembered to flip the switch.-) Thanks for reminding me.

    Your stalker may think that he can do things in secret but karma is always there weighing up up deliberate disruptive actions.

      Good thought. We’ll see how it goes. It’s only been a couple of days, but he hasn’t showed up yet.

    Oh look! A thumbs down. Hm. Does that mean my stalker’s back, or is this an honest vote? Let’s wait and see.

    Two more thumbs up! We’re winning. My stalker doesn’t stand a chance.
