So they’re a stalker and yet you’re the one randomly bothering people who follow him about giving you ‘bad vibes’?? Okay, that *totally* makes sense. Like, if you seriously think that, and have evidence to support it, please just take it up with Tumblr staff and click the ignore button. You’d be doing yourself a much bigger favour than messaging people who occasionally reblog his stuff. I’m not saying that he’s perfect and hasn’t said any questionable things either, if you’re a follower of both of ours I’m sure you’ve seen me get into it with him before. But stalking?? I’ve been stalked on Tumblr before, what it looks like is this:
-Reblogging literally everything you reblog even if they don’t like it, in pretty much the same order that you do because they are obsessed with you.
- Sending you multiple messages of both the angry debating kind AND the chatty nice kind, sometimes getting really pissed off if you aren’t responding to all of them.
-Making hate blogs dedicated to only you with really lame stuff in them like your clothing, stuff you said five years ago when you were a young teenager, and etc.
-Messaging people who follow you to persuade them to think a certain way about you, or to get information about you.
-Aggressive doxxing attempts: This is different from passive doxxing attempts such as installing codes on your blog to find out who is sending you anonymous hate mail. This is actively finding out where you live using your IP address or other information from your blog, not because you’ve done something criminal but just because your stalker wants find you for whatever reasons. This is actually illegal in many parts of the world.
-Finding you on other social media platforms such as facebook and getting mad when you’re not being really friendly with them especially if they’ve been doing any of the above things.
-Finding family members and friends on facebook and trying to talk to them about you.
- Photoshopping pictures of you and your responses to things to make them suit what they’re trying to paint you like: either to portray you negatively, or to make you look like you’re minimizing what happened, and etc.
-Actually being an old friend or relative and screen capturing things from their personal facebook page and sharing them with the public for no good reason other than they might be embarrassing for them.
-Sending multiple messages on anonymous over a period of many days or weeks pretending to be different people in order to harass you.
These are just a few examples and somebody doesn’t have to be doing all of them to be stalker, but reading through them should give you an idea of what Tumblr stalking looks like. Tumblr stalking is rampant, obsessive, dangerous and more often than not a stepping stone to stalking in the offline world. I am not saying Endracismandhomophobia isn’t capable of stalking, I don’t really know him well and I think everyone has the potential to break boundaries and act in an uncomfortable fashion; but if you are involved with the people I think you’re involved with I have to say it’s really really shitty to accuse someone of criminal behavior just because they are aggressively disagreeing with your lot about something.
I am deeply offended if this is what it’s coming down to, both as a past victim of very real stalking and harassment and as an internet acquaintance of Endracismandhomophobia’s. If you have screenshots and real evidence of him doing any of the above things I’ve listed as symptoms of stalking, please please please report it to Tumblr staff before doing anything else with it. If he is really doing these things you need to protect yourself first and focus on getting people on your side second. But I hope he’s not stalking you, and I also hope you aren’t seriously considering accusing him of doing these things because you lost a debate. If this is the case, might I suggest waiting a week or two, and then messaging him to ask if you can speak privately about what you were talking about first?
