Not to toot my own horn, cause this shit ain’t even
funny, but I have been e-stalked before. If you are not familiar with the term, its when someone you don’t know follows you around the internet scoping out your every move. You join a site, they magically appear there too and follow you around the site.
For example, there is this guy that has been following me from site to site for about 4 years. He was a member of an adult modeling community called NYC Chocolate Models. I didn’t really talk to him there other then the occasional comment in a thread. The site was just a forum at the time that has since been closed. So maybe 2 years ago I notice he added me to his BlackPlanet friends then two years later to his Flickr contacts. Now he’s on FullFiggas. I have managed to ignore every single tag this man has left me. A mutual friend told me that when she talks to him, he’s mentioned my name. :sneer: I don’t like that kinda shit. If I don’t know you don’t be talking to my friend about me like you know me. So anyway, he’s one of a few stalkers I have. I use the term pretty loosely because I don’t like to call people stalkers. But it fits in some cases.
All this brings me to this. I received an IM today on my Yahoo from some random ass name. Take a look:
illusivewreck: Hey chunkymoe
Monika: umm who is this?
Monika: jerome from where?
illusivewreck: From oakland
Monika: do i know you?
illusivewreck: I have seen ytour profile on a lot of websites
illusivewreck: Wmo. Myspace
Monika: i’m assuming you have considering you are calling me a name i havent used in over 8 years
Monika: maybe not 8 but i guarantee its been 7 years since i’ve gone by “chunkymoe”
illusivewreck: I’m just calling you that to be facetious
Monika: ok..so have i ever talked to you?
illusivewreck: Once or twice
Monika: hmm…i dont remember you.
Monika: may i ask how you got my IM name? did you just guess?
Monika: whats your name on there?
illusivewreck: I asume u not chunky anymore ?
Monika: i am i just dont go by that name.
illusivewreck: You got a man
Monika: its pretty weird for someone i don’t know to im me on a name i currently use and call me by a name i havent gone by in 7 years
Monika: sounds umm whats the word…stalkerish
illusivewreck: Uh oh
Monika: and then you got my im name from a site i login to like once a month..maybe
illusivewreck: Not like dat
illusivewreck: Check your I’m name on there
Monika: i see it there. i know its there
illusivewreck: I think its current
Monika: fact is you know me by a name that no one calls me
Monika: SEVEN WHOLE YEARS
Monika: i don’t even login to account with chunkymoe anymore
illusivewreck: You used to use it
Monika: SEVEN YEARS AGO
illusivewreck: I have been a member there for 8
Monika: ok..so what. i’m looking at your wmo profile and i don’t know you
Monika: im not interested in getting to know you
Monika: have a good day!
illusivewreck: Aight its cool. I just thought since u are a member of every dating sute there is you would appreciate some attention
Monika: i’m a member on wmo, ff and mbc because i am friends with the owners jackass.
Monika: i assume you would know that since you following me everywhere
Monika: maybe you would have noticed i hadn’t talked to anybody on wmo since march 2007
Monika: go stalk/follow someone else
Yes, that is his Yahoo ID…no I do not care about his privacy. “Chunkymoe” is the online name I went by before I adopted “Upenzi”. I was followed beyond belief with the name “Chunkymoe”. I actually had 2 guys I didn’t know hollering my name at a club one night. And it wasn’t the first time. I swear I’m not making this crap up :lmao: I actually felt hella lame the first time cause I kept saying to myself, “Damn bitch you online too much”. I just happen to frequent a lot of community based sites. Not even on a dating tip, just sites that are community based.
Today really just weirded me out. 7 years is far too long to be watching someone. Kinda spooked me out too cause he lives in the same city I do. You just never know with people online.
Have you ever been e-stalked?
Did you stalker find you?
Have you ever had someone approach you offline by your online handle?
