If you leave you'll just encourage his behavior, you're saying that it's ok and that if he continues to be a deranged fucktard he'll continue to get what he wants.

I'm not a professional or anything but I guess that's pretty much how his life operates. If he wants something he just plays the mentally disabled card and people around him give in or use it as an excuse to excuse his bad behavior.

You were doing good by standing up to him and not taking his shit, it's for the best if you keep doing that, it shows that he can't have a tantrum to always get what he wants and that he can't control you.

There's no drama, seriously. The mods are a full team who share the workload and don't mind playing a bit of wack-a-troll. It's not your fault he's behaving the way he is.

I completely concur.

One can only control one's own self. <-- this means he only controls himself.

However, he also wants to control others. He has made it his life's work to become an expert in controlling others.

One of the ways (they are numerous) he does it, is to let YOU think his behavior depends on YOU.
It's the easiest hook in the book, frankly.

30 socks heh? He did more that in a single day over there. Must be getting slow.

For me it's not about fucking him over, it's about protecting the forum and it's members.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you.

From what? he can do what is doing to her here on another website and he is still going to make socks regardless of weather she is here or not, remember penut gallery?

If I had that line of thought, I wouldn't be here, my main forum is free of matty for some time, why should I care for other forums? Right?

...

Nah, I'm not like that. The guy has all the signs for a psychopath and one day he will hurt someone he knows in a forum, someone that just lives nearby him and is naive enough to try to understand/save/help him giving personal information.

By fucking him over I meant to use the law to get him where he belongs, in a padded cell for as long as it takes.

I actually think he would go away (from this forum) if she weren't here. His shout box diarrhea of the last few days is directed exclusively at her. Without her, he has no purpose here. I concede your other point, though. He can and will harass her on other forums. I agree that he should be behind bars with no access to a phone or a computer. If we could make that happen, it would be worth the effort.

RE: Sock puppets, and the banned. Is there a better way?
I'll explain: Matty joins a forum and once he manipulates his way into having a ( he targets mostly females ) member that tries to be understanding/empathetic towards him, he then proceeds to his creepy act of stalking. Once said member figures him out for what he is, he will then go batshit and get banned, only to harass the forum, using said member as the excuse for his sockpuppeting and other shenanigans. This has happened before, and not exclusively with Deidre, but some others. It is quite easy to spot this behaviour, it is never his fault, but everyone else's. Eventually he will get tired, but not before some valued members have left the forum.

Just food for thought. I saw this happen before.

RE: Sock puppets, and the banned. Is there a better way?
He appears to be limited to the Shout Box. The Shout Box, unlike posts in the forum, is like my bowels - self-cleaning. No colonic irrigation necessary. I'm pretty sure Deep can prevent new members from posting in the Shout Box until their first regular post in the forum is approved. LastPoet knows more about forum software than Girly so he can correct me if I'm mistaken.

This x 1000

FWIW, don't worry about me guys, seriously. He's only been harassing me here. (shoutbox)

But, I want nothing to do with him anymore. I don't want any involvement, I have my own life stresses and I'm going through my own issue with wondering if I even identify myself as an atheist anymore. Confused So, I just want to be left out of anything having to do with him, and I'm taking a break from here just to get a break from the drama, and such.

I'm more humiliated than anything else. I'm not afraid of the guy, etc. I'm just humiliated by this whole thing. Undecided

Ok...that's all I wanted to add. Thanks guys, and have a good weekend. Heart

Be true to yourself. Heart
