I'm being cyberstalked and harassed by 10 adults over 2 websites. (tumblr and*********** This has been going on for months and my health has declined! The police came in Aug. and told me nothing could be done. Is this true? They created a document on tumblr to defame my character including my entire abuse history, my name and business name. Moreover, created artwork with my personal picture with threatening messages and a petition for the other site members to have me banned. They have included my full name, address,, phone, business defamed my character in their attacks on polyvore.com in artwork and descriptions as well. I am a permanently disabled adult who recenlty underwent surgery and my health is in peril over this. I've had artwork that threatened my life, statements that they have investigated me, and harassing phone calls at all hours that I have to change my phone. ****.com deletes their material after 2 days, but gives me no notice of what they are doing. This is escalating the bullies responses. tumblr recites freedom of speech and ignores that 5 of their rules and guidelines were broken by this user in a document that was fabricated utilizing some of my emails they obtained by creating a fake profile and befriending me and own words. ***blr tells me that I will have to get the court to remove it. How does one with little money go about a civil suit? I have to get these things removed from cyberspace. Moreover, they are till stalking and threatening me and my business at every turn. They need to be stopped. Thank you for listening. Weary and Holding on.. fearful to sign name.
