I'll mention no names, but I've received quite a few PMs from a stalker. I've replied to a few and ignored the rest.This person appears to be extremely needy, so I tried to be kind in my replies at first, but the messages became increasingly hostile, lashing out in a sophomoric manner, including what were clearly intended to be devastating insults. Since this person doesn't know me at all, I was quite bemused at the obvious projection involved: wild accusations that describe the accuser rather than the accused. I'm afraid I responded rather sarcastically a few times.
Anyway, in an effort not to make a long story interminable, I'll come to the point. I'm wondering if there's any way I can block this poor soul's posts and all too revealing personal messages? This is a case where I can't offer any help, since I don't have any professional psychological standing, and I'd like to be done with this stalker's angst without causing any harm to a delicate ego.
This has been going on for years. Can someone advise me about how to put a stop to it?
