Unless there is more going on that simply making annoying replies on Topix, I think bore and troll is as far as you can go.http://www.topix.com/forum/top stories/TOB4NUSEJ28FLHGIR/post 35
You just never know who your talking to.
WWW's link kind of leads toward Chaser being a stalker. He is for sure a troll and at the very least an unsteady individual.
He seems to be obsessed with 2 posters. 1 on another thread and Lyndi. Have you ever noticed when Lyndi is gone for awhile and catcher isnt around as soon as Lyndi posts he responds.
I doubt he's a lawyer. He's claimed to be a criminal defense lawyer, a corporate lawyer and a Civil Rights lawyer. In each category he claims to be highly succesful. He has a need to let others know how he enjoys the finer things in life. Cant take a trip w/o letting others know. Insecurity leads to bad decision making.
I think Lyndi has every right to be concerned.
How could a succesful lawyer spend his weekdays and weekends on topix insulting others like a child as much as he does? Or better yet why would a succesful lawyer spend his days on topix insulting others? He adds very little or nothing to any thread he's on. He's here to play his childish games.
But I do have to say it is funny to watch Lyndi school him on every subject brought up in here, including law..........
As far as who Catcher REALLY is - a) who cares? b) he could be everything he says he is, or
I don't know why trolls do what they do, but I've run into them on almost every board I've participated in for 15 years +/-. I had a couple of small websites with forums, and it seemed like the minute I hit about a hundred registered posters the trolls would show up. The stereotype is of the guy (gal) posting from mom's basement, but some of them are apparently regular, ordinary people in real life who just get a perverse kick out of being annoying and disruptive behind the anonymity of the web.
Being an idiot or an assh**e isn't illegal, and running into them is a fact of life on the web.
