It’s not that often that I must make a public statement in regards to being attacked. As you are aware, I’ve had a Facebook stalker for quite some time. I know who this person is but can’t prove anything on my end. Facebook would be able to prove it if there was actually recourse for being harassed in this manner.
Since my Facebook profile has been verified, I haven’t had any issues with my posts being reported and my url blocked.
Unfortunately, this person has now moved onto harassing my wife.
Lizze runs her own blog at www.themamaspace.com… At some point last night, her url became blacklisted or blocked by Facebook, because it’s been reported as violating Facebook’s community guidelines. This is the same thing that I’ve been battling since January of this year. Please take a second and check out her site. I know she’d appreciate the support.
If you’re upset or offended by something she’s written, here’s a few ideas on how you can more productively deal with those feelings.
I always find it odd that the people who are most critical, spend time every day to read what they already know they aren’t going to like or agree with. Just stop reading. Visit a different site or maybe put down your connected device and go for a walk. No one is forcing anyone to read anything that I’m writing. Move on…
Confront Me Directly
If you have a problem with me, do something constructive with those feelings. Send me an email and tell me how much you hate me or don’t like what I’m doing. You won’t be the first or the last to do that. Maybe you’ll even feel better when you’re done. You can do this by clicking here.
Use the Comment Field
I’m under no illusion that everyone likes or agrees with me. If you have a concern or question about something, leave a tactful, well thought out and intelligent comment. We don’t have to agree to show each other respect. I welcome your thoughts, even if they’re different than mine. All I ask is that you be respectful in your approach and think about what you’re trying to say before you submit the comment. How you approach me with your concern determines to a very high degree, how I’m going to react.
Aside from the above options you have to reach out to me or simply stop reading, there are a few things that I very strongly suggest you avoid.
I Know My Situation Best
I’m always open to suggestions or outside the box thinking. I’ve found some creative solutions to problems because of reader feedback and I think that’s an awesome thing. It’s something I truly appreciate.
It’s important to remember however, that I know my situation best because I’m actually living it. I’m open to suggestions but that doesn’t mean I will act on any of them. No matter what you may think, you don’t know my life or my family better than I do.
My Wife and Kids Are Off Limits
No matter what you think of me or what I’m doing with my life, leave my family out of it. Take up your problems or concerns with me and DO NOT go after them.
My wife and kids are off limits. Don’t attack my wife on social media or on her blog. She’s trying to help people and that’s to be commended.
Reporting posts we share on our respective Facebook pages, in an attempt to censor or limit our ability to share our story makes you a fucking coward. If you don’t like it, don’t read it. DO NOT go after my wife. Doing so will put you on my shit list. It’s a short list that is reserved for a few special people who go out of their way to make our lives miserable.
I’m not happy when people attack me but at the end of the day, I’m a big boy and I can handle it. Falsely reporting my wife’s posts as offensive or spam, in order to discourage her from sharing her story or trying to break her spirit is beyond petty.
In regards to my Facebook stalker, I know who you are and you know who you are. Life is far too short to spend your time fucking with other people, simply to feel better about your own life. Move on and make no further attempt to maliciously interfere with our lives.
