New South Wales Police say they take reports of online stalking seriously.
Assistant Commissioner Peter McErlain says they are very keen to get in touch with victims who have been repeatedly threatened on the social networking site Facebook. "Since the advent of social media, there has been a steep increase in the number of complaints"
"We take them all seriously and regardless of whether the threats are communicated in person, over the phone, face to face, or via the email, or I guess in this case via a social networking site,"
"We do everything within our power to investigate these incidents"
This event and several others were reported to NSWPF, not a single thing has been done,
[S.W.N.I.D.N.M.!] continues to this day.While I have made light of this situation - that and the fact that I'm a big burly bloke and simply find
The following transcript is a chat that I had on Facebook, Marina was a random who sent through a friend request. I'd never met Marina prior to this chat!
It's pretty mundane stuff until you get to the end.
Now, to be fair - I suspect that the person Marina I was chatting to WAS
back to your life, it sounds like an adventure?
it is a complete boredom
yours sounds a real fairytale
not sure about fairytale, perhaps a tim burtonish fairytale, it has been an experience
i haven't become jaded but do keep looking over my shoulder, jittery
how do they call it? a kind of a macabre fairytale
too english for me really
or is it star wars-never could understand all the euphory about it
went to a gallery opening last night, was amazed at how many ppl wanted to hear my tale, so not right
all people have their ow phobias and manias, it is normal
iso your life is drama less?
it is a melodramatic comedy
it was called High Drama last night
what is the meaning?
i have to be amused, i kind of played along with it for a while
High Drama: like opera
so you are an opera singer?
Not Remotely, a shower singer perhaps
what do you sing? metallica?
no. you sound funny and even strange. or maybe it is my lack of education to understand australian humour
strange, now your just being nasty
i don't sing, not publicly.
so i just asked what do you sing when taking your shower, privately, i am not nasty, not really
that was more sarcasm, i realise your not nasty!
not sarcasm either, just vital interest
i also sing in the shower
house ballads are my chosen tunes to choke, i'd hate to think what i really sound like, running water sufficiently drowns out most of my bad sound
and you sing?
some love ballads
and i sing when i am drunk
you enjoy singing drunk?
when i am drunk i enjoy lots of stuff i hate when i am sober
thats a bit dark, sober is good
so you do not drink
i do drink, i don't get drunk though
what is the purpose then?
what do you enjoy when drunk, make me smile
purpose? the mellow feeling of being slightly aloof?
soo many words to look for in a dictionary
and how do you relax?
i walk around relaxed, i try not to get stressed ever, works most of the time
you must be happy to live and unstressed life
i haven't ever lived a stressed life so it's hard to compare
can i ask what are you? an artist? a creative author? a freelance philosopher?
i'm a drop in a bucket ,not sure how to answer that
is there any answer?
i don't think so, freelance philosopher sounds neat
good, i am happy i could guess
i think this year i am going to be a student
i am happy that you are happy
what do you most like doing when drunk?
we learn when we live
your happiness makes me happy
welll, i like eating a lot, singing, talking to stangers about the sense of life
most of the time, sometimes though its nice to sit in a room with other ppl that are looking for something
are you talking to me?
yes? you said: we learn when we live, responce was: most of the time . . .
though thats such a good line "are you talking to me"
what are these people looking for?
life i'd think, i suppose watching other ppls confusion is quite soothing for me, gives a perspective, stops me from wanting to save the world-allows me to realise it doesn't want to be saved-is happy being confused
yes, it is a kind of self satisfaction of being either confused. or thrilled. you seem not like it but you enjoy it..
are you still here?
lively gesturing you i am here
the [S.W.N.I.D.N.M.!] thing disheveled me slightly, the fact that i can't (don't want to either) control someone elses behavior just dictates that i need to be calm, it's not a thought, it's a non-action action
non action action sounds very wise and pragmatic
but i was surprised she wrote a message to me. i thought it were you, other you
pragmatic, you have been digging into that dictionary
no, it is an international definition, an easy one
i'm surprised she found me, didn't think she would look, my disguise it seems was a waste of time, now i'm addicted to my aka too scared to go anyplace near the real me, go figure
is there anywhere here a real you?
this is the real me, i think, my fingers tapping keyboard, my eyes on screen, this is facebook no one on the screen is real real
you are wiser than you let on, i like that a lot
there are people on facebook who have several accounts
humility is my favorite human trait !
and i am physically improving my English
you mean you like to humilitate?
ouch! NO! humility, being humble
let me check the dict
how much show can you put on girl?
humility-you like it in you. or in people?
so you are humble?
So sorry to hear of you and
[S.W.N.I.D.N.M.!] has been chatting me for 15 minutes, asking about us, she has watched you?
it turns out had been watching this entire chat on facebook, contacted Marina mid way through the chat & started harassing . . .
what was the [S.W.N.I.D.N.M.!] comment the other night, scared the crap out of me!
was it you?
[S.W.N.I.D.N.M.!] is my bunny boiling ex, wonderful woman (just in case shes watching)
i am from another part of the world and i do not know either you or your bunny boiling ex
sighs in relief!
but i did not get why she was watching me or you or me or us
read information and wall of our correspondent before starting a dialogue
she saw us talking in open
it means she is tracing you
you are glad i am back
what is eeeeeeeeeek?
enough of this, i am very glad your back, had fun
eeek is an I'm afraid sound, like a squeel
You sound (profile) like you have a brilliant life
anyway i understood from her she had something with you
good or bad, something to do with her feelings
i might know better and i do not know why she wrote to me
no relations, if she is stalking that is unfortunate, i have moved cities to make distance between us. i'm sorry she contacted you, she really is a bit lost at the moment
do you have common children?
she told you stole her children heart sorry
i hope your conversation with [S.W.N.I.D.N.M.!] was interesting, not sure how much of what she said is truth or feeling?
ok it was not coversation, everything is virtual anyway, and i am not intersted in your relations. i just do not want to be between you as i told you.
i have a safe distance from [S.W.N.I.D.N.M.!] so i feel quite calm in discussing
as far as i am concerned [S.W.N.I.D.N.M.!] longer exists, i will never in my lifetime see her again, this is a comfort!
is it the only thing to comfort you?
i am completely self contained, don't really need anything, everything i do get is a wonder, a nice experience. so far i haven't sought any other form of comfort!
alex is a little diabolical on this though, hurtful even
diabolical sounds challenging
if i go by her history of badgering others with our woes: she has told you some pretty tall stories
it was a very short notice you hurt her and her children and tehre were some money issues
these stories have been told to almost every human i know, family, friends, business acquaintances, now apparently complete strangers: diabolical
let her be
my sentiments precisely, she will work her way through it in her own time
