TAB gets stalkers, hate mail, intimidation and spammed threats by the bucketload – to be expected when you are dealing with the dregs of society.
Don’t get too excited ladies, you don’t know where those gloves have been…
We are somewhat sanguine about these threats. A nice way of saying BOOORIIIING…
However a recent addition shows some features which are new and some which are all-too-drearily-familiar.
It started off routinely enough. A flirtatious flutter of the cyber lashes so to speak.
Then the excitement mounted. In fact it turns out Danny wanted a date! In beautiful downtown Warragul, the excitement centre of Gippsland!
Now in true Jekyll and Hyde fashion, having been rejected by an always-alert admin, “Danny” assumed its “real” persona and started to sulk because the person it wanted not only wasn’t there but it was being ignored. The predictable tanty follows:
Now the wooing moved to Twitter, presumably out of reach of the lidless eye of the admins. And the spurned suitor adopted a new name. Fake of course.
Now so as not to insult the legitimate owners of the surname it is using which has been hijacked in the manner we have come to expect from the enemy, we are going to refer to it as “Freaky Frankie Stalker” – FFS for short.
What’s new is that FFS is using Twitter to convey its threats to our Twitter feed. Rather uncomfortable to be faced with the equivalent of pointless junk mail every time one logs into Twitter but it seems that’s the way the enemy likes to play. Junk using junk.
What is also new is that FFS wants to target not the blog owners but the subscribers. Obviously this has been done without much thought as to the consequences, since the lawyers, journos, coppers and soldiers who are regular fans will not be too impressed.
In its eagerness to appear as a clueless desperate wanker big tough guy targeting scared unwashed leftie green socialist faggot lesbian anti-racists (jeez how do we cover so many social bases?) FFS has made a few fundamental errors.
1. Firstly it is way off beam in identifying who is who. For instance the innocent young bloke it decided to monster on his own Twitter had no involvement with TAB. In fact he had probably never heard of us.
Had. That has changed. And we have a new friend.
2. The person it persists in thinking runs TAB does not. TAB is a collective of concerned activists. But he obviously so tickles FFS’s romantic tendencies because FFS has invited him and its other target for a coffee in Warragul yet again (must be good coffee there). And FFS managed to type that with one hand on his knob – we saw the fuckstains on its Twitter. Filthy sod!
3. As part of its totally idiotic deranged well-thought-out intimidation strategy it has managed to clearly defame at least three people. We are quite happy to assist them in preparing their cases at minimal cost to them.
Just remember FFS, Australia has had to all intents and purposes uniform defamation laws since 2005. They do cover such things as derogatory comments about the appearance of people and allegations that other people are paedophiles.
We are scrubbing out the surname you are using, but the unmodified screenshots are on their way to some friendly police we know.
