One of his favorite things to do was to embed and audio link in the word "PRESS" so that when you clicked the word you would hear Cary Grant say "You're not making sense!" and things like that.

This, and the smiley is literally all the asshole ever posted.

Then one day, two years ago now, he was in an argument with edmorel -- finally making substantive points, but still being an asshole -- and I pointed out that it was a bit rich for Tomasso to nitpick ed's clothes to death when he never posted pictures of his own.

He melted down in that thread, and has been on my ass ever since. He literally cannot and will not get over it.

You know, judging from the very late time stamps of his posts, I wonder of he does not write them much the worse from drink, in which case they would be slightly more understandable, but not any less sad.

Is there a reason why sometimes when I go to SF or some of the posts/sections the page doesn't load? It isn't predictable when that will happen but every now and then I just have to keep refreshing the page.

I can proudly say that I have never posted while intoxicated

The last I'd want to do if I was drunk was post on SF.

So all you did was say he never posts his pictures and randomly he posts your name and address? Damn you really know how to piss people off haha

I said it with a little vigor, I will admit. But with nothing approaching Tomasso's everday mean-spiritedness.

He is just a nasty guy, that's all.

We're talking about the "sold my car without my permission" thread right? I thought that was a troll. Was it an actual board member's wife?

Exactly Doc. Sometimes I wish I could ship anonymously and receive packages to a PO box. The e-stalking that I've seen here is creepy.

A new member posted in Fine Living Home Auto about her husband selling her Corvette "out from under" her. Apparently their financial situation changed and she hardly drove the car anyway. The battery died while it was garaged. She asked for advice on what she should do. It was a lighthearted post. There were rude comments including sexual propositions but she seemed to take it in stride. Personal information was posted and it became more vicious and creepy. Some people were way out of line. Apparently this member writes about fashion for the Examiner and initially joined thinking that this was a women's fashion site. Not a warm welcome..

I saw that thread. The OP either knew exactly what she was doing (trolling) or is too stupid to be allowed on the internet. If real, she showed judgment below what you would expect from a six-year old.

Ah, I'd forgotten I read the first part of that thread, then stopped because it seemed ridiculous.

+1 I have to agree, she either knew exactly what she was doing or shouldn't be allowed out or on the net unsupervised.

That's a bit harsh. There are plenty of people who identify themselves on public fora - SF tends to pretty anonymous but some other places I browse frequently have pics showing faces and people using their real names or linking to articles they wrote, etc... Even here, jlib, kwilk, manton, etc... are in the non-anonymous category. That doesn't mean that other members should feel free to e-stalk and post address or details about the life of these non-anonymous. Let's not blame the victim here.
post #6000 of 9842
it's not blaming the victim (or justifying stalking her), but she herself posted pics to the examiner website and her name, nobody really was doing any 'searching' at that point...
