Wow, I’ve been talking about my other websites this week, and the mailing lists I run and I must say sometimes it’s quite amusing.
A little flame war broke out on one of my lists earlier today and I have a feeling that I might now have gained myself either a persistent troll or worse a cyber stalker out of it. It all depends on the control measures that I just took on the list as to how things go. You see, as the list owner and administrator I had to step in to put out the flames and the troll that caused the trouble didn’t like that one bit.
The person subscribed to the list with a free email after I put his subscribed email on “no post” status, and sent a semi threatening note to the list stating in it “We’ll be watching you”. With the you being me of course. I think this person needs to get sent on one of those Alaskan cruises and end up not being able to get back on the boat once it reaches it’s destination.
Hopefully nothing much comes of this. I just thought I should warn you that it might flow into the blog. Hopefully any of this creaton’s comments get moderated by Akismet before they get on the blog.
At this point I’m finding the situation mildly amusing in that this person thinks their taunts can get to me. Believe me, I’ve seen better! It could however spill over into something much more serious, and that would not be amusing at all. So my guard is up, I’m watching my email, lists, and sites carefully for any signs of attack and we’ll just have to see how this goes.
