I hope to only need it temporarily: Most of the time, there is no need to block proxies. But my trolls have started using them to get around my blocks.
Great, I just picked up at least 20 new stalkers! 😀
This is why I keep my identity locked up on the Net: because of crazy people like these trolls seem to be. Even my domain name is locked up tight, so nobody can search out the owner on WHOIS.
This is also one reason why I stuck with self-hosted after almost going to Wordpress.com: I have a whole bunch of tricks to round up these stalkers and kick them out. And yeah, they’re still trying to get in.
They’re all blocked, but a couple are finding other ways in, such as proxies. I’m not sure what’s going on there, because they show up in Statcounter but Wordfence said they were blocked, so I tried blocking them at the server level. And their proxy.
This is absolutely pathetic. WHY are they coming after me? WHY? I have no connection to their vendetta. I have nothing to do with their target. I’m just some random fan of a certain reality show. Well, was a fan.
I’m quite sure somebody–maybe two people–from the show came on, too, but didn’t block them because they’re not the trolls and actually showed some interest in finding out about me (rather than digging stuff up). I have nothing to fear from the family.
I’m also really disgusted because I want to play with my Twitter, set up a box in the corner of my blog so everybody can keep up with my tweets. But I have it shut down to the public now, so you can only see it if you follow my Twitter.
Maybe I’ll delete some stuff and open it back up. Anyone coming with the old links, I would set up to automatically block.
I bet they don’t like that I called them out. Well, suck it, trolls: I’m not retracting what I said. Your behavior proves it’s true.
By the way, readers, my site will probably load a bit more slowly because I had to turn on Live Traffic. It drags things down a bit, but helps me keep an eye on and block all the trolls.
My previous post explains where they came from. I don’t know why they’re so interested in my site all of a sudden. I opened up a Twitter for my readers, decided to have some fun with it–make it public, run a Twitter feed on my site–and right away I’m targeted by these creeps.
Now I have to shut my Twitter from the public again, until they go away. Why are they after me? I have nothing for them. I have nothing to do with them.
This is scaring me and distracting me from some work I want to do on my novel. I’m scared of what they’re looking for and what they’ll do with it. But there is absolutely no reason for them to investigate me. I have no connection to them!
Mass blockings are going on. If you’re a friend who ends up blocked, my apologies. It’s hard to tell just from computer data, who you are.
UPDATE: I have proof that he is who he says he is, so the trolls can pound rocks.
