Okay, I have a very real alert stalking problem and Things are worse than I thought, Updated!!! [View all]

Now a Hillary Supporter is locking My threads in GDP as "off topic"
this one, where else would I post it?

It also makes more sense to me now how my postal address wa so easily found as it was used to purchase a star less than a week prior to the offending letter. It is now clear I am most assuredly being "asked to leave", and it involves more than a few jerks in the Hillary group. Some are Hosts of the GDP group, one of whom locked a discussion about the candidates comparative records.
Which makes no sense, at least not ethically or by the terms of service of he group.

I have even received threats in my snail mail from those claiming to be "proud members of the DU Clinton group". That say "they can and will alert me off the site because of my far left views and attacks on Clinton". I am not far left, I know that, and I do not believe I am guilty of "attacking" Clinton, I believe I simply reveal things about her and her differences with Democratic values and disagree vehemently with some of her more deadly policies. (many of you have read enough of my posts over the past dozen years to judge this for yourselves).

I also believe that doing such things are one of the purposes of discussing politics on a political website, else we might as well debate the differing methods used to bake cookies. I have never gone after her personally and have only gone after her policies which I believe are fair game.

The fact that they know my addy really does not bother me, many people know it, as I have never been very frightened about revealing myself online and am easy to find, many of you already know, but my IRL name is Dennis M Wilson and I reside on the southeast side of Buffalo NY.

I have even received some fan mail from online people that I never gave my address to, so finding me is easy, with a paid membership in one of those places that does that sort of thing.

I have nothing to fear at home because I literally have nothing of value and even my life is of extremely little value to me since my wife died, and my health sucks anyway.

The part I am worried about is losing my voice here, I don't, and would never resort to signing up under another name anywhere, ever, it is a matter of honor to me (it would be easy enough as IP spoofing is child's play, I simply would never do it).

The help I need from you guys is very simple, PM me in order of most likely to alert stalk among that group from worst to least likely in that order, I have ten open slots on my alert block list, I would also like if possible for someone to clarify for me that those on ignore can not alert on me, (I have this idea they can't, because I know the admins once said one cannot alert on those on one's ignore list so I just assume it goes both ways, but do not know for sure and ask the admins could take several months if ever before I get a reply).

It is getting very bad these past few weeks, I have received moe hides these last weeks than I have in at lest 8 years prior combined. I also received several heads up via PM regarding a great many more unsuccessful attempts, and I wonder how many attempts I never hear about.

If you believe I have earned such treatment then so be it, perhaps I do, but if you believe this unfair, let me know, and help as best you can.

There was only one threat and it was sent as postage, I don't think it was actionable as the threat Dragonfli May 2016 #46
