Poison Letters
Hi folks.

It seems someone who, um, really really dislikes me is writing poisonous anonymous comments on LJ. A couple months ago there was one posted to my LJ about how I was cheating on Bill (which I'm not). On September 30th, it was a more elaborate post on Bill's LJ about how this person hopes he falls in love with this girl he's hiking with because I am actually a professional whore who isn't good enough for him, etc. etc. That's not true either. Well, the whore part anyway. Whether or not I'm good enough for Bill is up to Bill and I can make no assertions on that point.

Anyway, this is obviously a person who hopes to break up my marraige and/or ruin my and my husband's reputations. I don't particularly like that.

Anonymous posts are now screened on both of our journals.

However, I can't do anything about your journals, and my friends list is of course public, and for all I know this person is also badmouthing me at cons - there was mention in the last post of having worked on cons I've worked on. I thought I would go ahead and say that if you read or hear something poisonous about me, I hope you will a) doubt it, b) feel free to talk to me about it, c) delete it if it is an anonymous post - and send me the IP address if you track them. (And if for some reason someone posts this sort of thing in a non-anonymous way, well, I'd like to hear about that too.)

That's just bizarre. Wow. Well, those of us who know you know better.

Did you get their IP address?

Well, I know I'm just reiterating what everyone has posted here, but... Even *I* know you and Bill well enough to know that these libels aren't worth the paper they're printed on.
I believe that this isn't specifically targeted at you. I'd bet that this is someone who was in a similar situation as Bill (i.e., in a temporarily long distance relationship with a spouse/S.O.), but whose spouse/S.O. cheated on him/her. This person then stumbles upon yours/Bill's LJ, sees the parallel of the situations and then decides to take it out on you. He/she probably feels that they're doing Bill a favor. In short, it's just a bitter, lonely jackass with nothing better to do.

Urggg. Just at the point I think that the bottom-feeders have hit bottom, well, they hit a lower bottom.

Much support from this direction (D.C. area - I'm in the throes of moving, but jonsinger is still at the same place).

(a) You have your friends' support.

(b) Remember, if you don't feed them, the trolls won't stick around. I suggest that the next time you need to comment on this that you turn off comments. These comments we're writing may be troll food (attention) instead of troll repellant.

I'm sorry you and Bill had to go through that, especially the part about his Mom reading the comment. Ugh.
