I see several people claim they are being stalked in the Christian Forums. There are roughly 20 active threads at any given time on topix and a hundred or more semi-regular posters. I tend to believe people are just running into one another due to confined area, rather than malicious stalking. I won't say there is no stalking, but I would imagine it makes more sense to presume that people are just using the forum as it was intended.

For example, my house has 11 rooms in it and only three people living here. When we are all home, we see each other constantly in various rooms (and all over outside) though out the day since we are in the same relatively confined area.

Topix is the same concept. Twenty to thirty regular posters in twenty threads are going to "bump" into each other regularly without any heinous intentions. The more you post, the more likely you will "bump" into the same posters on different threads be they ones you like or ones you do not like.

Sometimes the simplest explanation really is the correct explanation. Everyone have the greatest week you can.

I think malicious intent is the key phrase. I pop in threads when I see a familiar name to see if it will interest me. Some posters hunt down their opposition, take over the thread and threaten legal action against anyone who has an opposing position. that said...Happy Halloween

Oh, and just for levity lets add that I live on 7 acres with 4 dogs and I am forever finding one or more of them right UNDER foot.

What is up with that???? Seven acres and they all choose to reside in the three square foot area under my feet :D.

I do not claim to understand the underlying reason why so many feel they are being stalked within the Christian forum, but I have heard this claim from several people (4-6 or so). If they think about The Christian forum like a house with only so many rooms to walk into to, thus bumping into others is inevitable rather than malicious, maybe they will feel less persecuted.

God bless you and yours :).

Sorry, but as long as Penny is posting we will have the problems, the threats, whinning and accusations. Until she and she alone is gone this will continue. It;s a shame one person has so much control over a thread.. That is because you people play with her and coddle her instead of reporting her hateful vindictive ass

That actually sounds appealing to me.

A few claim to be stalked within this forum, which is ludicrous. However, what most complain of is those stalking to this forum and other forums by those that never have posted there before, or seldom, for attacking only. If one hates Christians, then they would logically stay away from this forum. Doesn't work that way. Debate is one thing, and these people I refer to never have any intent to debate.

This thread is not about any one person. I have heard this from at least 4 posters, many unrelated to the others in any way.

I have not noticed anyone person having more control than the others, but then I use the scroll ball a lot to bypass the petty stuff. I have noticed people behaving badly and I hope they behave better in real life and have better coping skills off forum than they exhibit here.

Most the time I love it, but then occasionally I end up on the ground because they are all big puppies playing with one another very roughly around my ankles. I get cranky when I get knocked by rowdy pups.

I know little about those posting outside the Christian section. Out of all my posts, I believe maybe 6-8 are off this forum, the rest are here. I am sure some are creative in their ways of being nosy. I will never understand when one anonymous person actually chooses to waste valuable time stalking another anonymous person around a debate forum over petty words. To each their own.

God bless you and yours.

Well, it's obvious you are too good to them, and probably the one who feeds them, etc...

If you do like me, ignore them, speak to them in a deep voice and never feed them, they will return the favor...:-P

BTW, I do believe there are those who stalk...

What kind of dogs?? I have a pitbull/boxer that is nearly a year, and a rescue pup that is about 9 weeks that is pitbull/boxer/Shar Pei. Super high~energy with incredible speed, strength, endurance, and personality. We must go for daily lengthy runs.

Apparently TOPIX disagrees with you cause U are banned.
If people like you just STOPPED and left me alone things would be fine. You cannot do that so you place blame on me. How about you try for 2 DayS TO LEAVE ME ALONE and watch what happens and if some of the others would also. I am NOT going no where so you might as well get use to me being here. You cannot have me banned cause you do NOT like me posting here. That is IMMATURE on your part.
With all seriousness please show me where I am being HATEFUL and vindictive? Seems your the one doing that and trying to put that on me. LOOK AT YOURSELF before you look at me.

Seriously,
Thank you for not putting the blame on just one person. For wanting to truly find a solution. Stalking to me is following someone that does NOT want to be followed only to use that person as entertainment. When someone says to another please leave me alone to have enough respect to abide by what that person says. To not put up an argument and say well this is a public forum YES it is, but it still gives no one a right to continue to follow someone from forum to forum just to instigate things. I can be in a forum and be doing fine and in comes SEVERAL at once to attack all at once. It has been done on here so is that stalking? I have talked to a Police Officer and he even says there are laws against even stalking someone on the internet especially when that person has asked for another to leave them alone and they refuse. Just because it is a public forum does not mean laws do not apply cause they do.

Now I said my peace
thanks for listening

you are truly one sick person and you wonder why you get banned?
Please get some PSYCHOLOGICAL counseling.

to the ICON person so to you it is funny when someone is told to commit suicide? you also needs some PSYCHOLOGICAL help if you find MRSMURPHY that amusing that telling someone to step in front of a bus is funny to you. Some things are just NOT humorous or funny
