Default Re: How personal are the stories you share on this forum?

Guys, when I am not being a rhythm freak I am in fact an Internet consultant. Now the Internet is a great idea but unfortunately it is an ideal tool for those who want to wreak havoc without having to face the consequences of their actions.

There have in fact been some court actions recently to deal with people who have libelled others over the Internet. I'm not talking about a bit of idle malice here, I'm talking about a campaign to harass and damage another person via the Internet.

It's easy to damage a professional reputation with just a few well-chosen emails. It is often easy to trace the sender of messages by assorted means and so track the statement to the person and use that to blackmail them. There are some seriously nasty people out there and there are some quite vulnerable people in here.

Be careful.
