Hello, After a recent very traumatic experience with a person met on a dating site, I reported the person to the site, which took no responsibility and did nothing. I felt impelled to make it possible for other women to be warned about this person should they google his name upon meeting him, and wrote a serious and sober article discussing this kind of encounter with keyword tags to the person's name. He eventually discovered this too and has sent me threatening emails sprinkled with words like "murder" "deadly enemy" and saying he would do his utmost should I not remove his name. (He is by the way, not presently in the same country as myself.) For my own peace of mind I said I would do so and did, but also told him I would bring a case for harassment should I hear from him again. Though I also submitted the updated article to google to refresh search results faster, a couple still appear a week later though they point only to unfound content. Now he is writing again, on the assumption that I did not do as promised. Do I reply to restate that what he demanded was done? I could also move the article that no longer references him, to a different url, thus breaking any link to old search results. Do I do this and tell him I have done so to further improve results so that he will calm down and leave me alone? Or do I simply ignore his email? Thanks very much.
