Online Harassment: Enough! Enough!

I am currently being harassed by a couple in Iceland. I have taken all the appropriate steps to ask them to back off and just leave me alone. If I only had an erase button and could erase these two from my life. I have tried to solve this problem with them, after almost a full year they will not stop. At one point we did come to an understanding that it was all petty. But the husband of the unstable couple could not leave well enough alone and began harassing me again and posting libel statements on websites and in his blog about my husband. You can read more about this on the warning section of Todays-Woman.net and see some of the screen captures and emails from the 2 disks that I have saved of his harassment.

At first the harasser was more of a nuisance than anything. I got into several debates with him on forums trying to prove myself because of the libel statements that he made and I replied to several of his emails asking him and his wife to just back off. After some time I had stopped responding to his emails but he continue to email me. After a year of abuse my husband Shawn and I decided that it was time to consider a libel suit against him and his wife, as I said; I have about 2 disks full of proof of malicious intent from them both. He has in the past contacted my members, my columnists and my link partners and told them that I’m a thief and I infringe on copyright. He even went as far as to contact my publisher to say my poems were stolen.

They both follow me around the net. If I post on a forum, his wife joins and posts on that same forum. They even emailed Tucows to let them know that I did not have my whois info listed. I had removed it because of them. Anyway they began harassing tucows. I have blocked their ip’s from my site but they are on a proxy so it does no good. Because they are in Iceland and I’m in Canada we are dealing with laws here, however that does not stop us from bringing them to court on libel charges.

The statements made about my husband and I are untrue and they have damage my reputation. Not to mention all of this has been a huge strain on my health. I have contacted their isp provider, my local police department, the police in Iceland, The US Naval Air Station in Keflavik, Iceland and a lawyer.

Everyone agrees that this is a civil case and I have enough to bring them to court. It would be nice if they would just leave us alone. It would be nice to settle the dispute before trial. Most courts don't like libel suits. The first line of defense will be for them to prove in court that the allegations they have made towards my husband and I are in
in fact true. ( This they can not do) I hope that they have taken into thought that they both will be under oath.

We have already been in contact with the proper office of the Navy that says that they will make sure that ‘the wife is complying with the court’s order.

I think this entire ordeal will be more painful for them both than they ever wanted it to be. I don’t think neither of them ever attended for it to go this far. However the husband just could not stop.

I really do not believe they are very sorry over all of this. Did they both go too far? I do believe that they did. Libel is an offensive and serious form of defamation. Sadly, this is the outcome of their libel statements.

I had actually started to feel sorry for them; I mean they have a daughter. The things that they posted about my husband and I was pretty serious.

What started out to be a squabble between two competitors has turned into this huge ordeal. I would really rather not sue them for libel but what other choice do we have. It is so sad that it has come to this.

Talk about overkill! (Don't Phunk With My Heart)

The radio station is playing the same song over and over and over again. It is pathetic. There is absolutely no balance. There use to be a time when I turned on the radio and it had a nice variety of music. I'm telling you if I have to hear the song "Don't Phunk With My Heart" one more time I'll scream. Honestly people the song sucks. There's really no escape from this song. Every station you turn on there it is "Don't phunk with my heart". How long will they keep playing this crap? Uggg

All hail the typo queen!

I am the world’s worst typist and have to proofread everything. Normally I don’t and I believe this has to be one of my many down faults. Too bad a big part of being a writer and running Todays-Woman.net is typing. Some of the worst typos that I make are the ones that MS word won't even catch. One of my worst typos was today. I was commenting on a poem and instead of writing it’s, I put tits. Thank goodness that I proofread that comment. Despite what one member felt, I was not in an erotic mode today, I’m just a typo queen.

Sorry Helen I did not mean to type tits in my comment. he-he

Busy Busy

Well sorry I have not updated my blog for a couple of days now. I've been busy like you wouldn't believe! I still will aim to update it regularly. I was looking at a bunch of websets I made a couple of years ago and it was interesting to see how much I have improved. My husband says I should redesign the sets and I can sell them on http://www.invision-graphics.com. I think he has a good idea but it is finding the time to do it. There are so many things that I would love to take time for. Todays-woman.net takes up a large amount of my time, not that I’m complaining. LOL My kids have been playing around in paint shop pro. They fell totally in love with http://www.freepsptubes.com so they have been having a ball making graphics. Anyway if anyone even reads my boring blog, I’ll see you next week! ( the way I update this thing it will be next week lol)

Summer time blues

The summer is coming to an end. Soon time for my children to hit the books. It is hard to believe my oldest starts high school. It just seems like yesterday I was taking her to kindergarten. Where do the years go? You blink and your children grow up. I think the kids are beginning to get restless. My daughter is excited and at the same time nervous about starting high school. My son is nervous about going to a new school. He doesn’t like change but he never has from the time he was a little boy. But it will be a good change for him and he’ll meet some new friends.

It is so hot today. We went out and purchased another fan and I’m sitting right in front of it. It actually feels very nice on the back of my neck. Well I got the interview up on my website with the attorney. He provided a lot of useful information concerning copyright. If you are a writer you will have to check it out. Well think I’ll go now and do some more work.
