I know I might have ignored this little gesture but I can’t. I somehow think it is my moral duty toward my readers; quite a lot of them have become my close friends. Please read the things written below carefully. Don’t brush them away casually.
In my long span of blogging i have met all type of people marvelous friends and trolls and people in-between who dwell the cyber world.
Unfortunately some trolls did not like the things I wrote in MSN, I have written in their user’s contribution section for almost two years. My writings were simply words from heart, before writing there I never even guessed people can become so abusive to those who write against their views.
These trolls started to cyber-stalk me from then on. I still receive their mails (After two years since I stopped writing in MSN) in my email ids. Extremely abusive and sometimes really perverted mails. Some regular writers are Shruti Brij, Shri, Vasundhara and Ria but as you know they must be fake names. But that does not makes their intentions less heinous so don’t take them lightly.
They are not innocent babies, their behaviour is on the brink of criminal activities, they used to regularly bother me , posting dirty (extremely) comments on my blogs, abusive comments and mails, insane rantings were daily affair. As a result I had to stop using my windows live blog because it did not gave the option of moderation then.
WORST PART IS/WAS FIRST THEY USED MY BLOG NAMES, AFTER SLIGHTLY MODIFYING THEM OR OPENING THE SAME BLOGS UNDER OTHER WEBSITES. Then they started to contact my readers with great gusto from those ids or blogs, sharing all the articles I have written in which there is/was some thing which might brush someone in a wrong way. (I should meekly say that I am straight-forward, too straight-forward for my own sake, so I have sometimes written clear cut truth without any sweetness, that much I can assure you).
Say for example, they will forward all my articles showing sympathy to Palestine or Iraq to Hindu fanatics or some articles in which I have said something really harsh. It seemed their sole intention was to drag the name of my blogs in their insane ranting or blacklist them to as many people as possible.
As I wrote under three pseudonyms (apart from my own name) I got some of them myself, that’s why I knew that they were not normal bullies who harass only the writer by posting sick comments on blogs, they had more things in their sleeves.
Can’t deny they won the war, I stopped writing in MSN and using Windows Live blogs even though I was pampered to no end by the editing section of MSN. I stick to WordPress specifically because it gives me the IP Address of the people who post comments. Somehow I have a deep guts feeling that they will be linked to ONE SINGLE OFFICE. So they and other mischief makers don’t visit WordPress much.
They are the main reason why i always keep my friends informed about the blog sites i am using/not using. I hope my friends won’t ignore these words.
I don’t want them to be fooled by any troll or favour-seeker using my name. i recently even deleted a remote desktop connection file from my computer. I got suspicious because one of my readers was writing my unpublished poems after brushing them up, so I asked my blog friends how can that be possible! A friend generously told me that its impossible unless someone is connecting your computer via remote access, so I searched for Remote Access software in the computer, got one, googled it and google said “Either you or someone else is remote accessing your computer.” I deleted it. My monitor crashed (they might have been coincidence but that’s what happened) … As I am not a talented writer I believe someone was hacking my connection for some other purpose. Using those poems was most probably sign of over confidence. Or may be he/she must have thought I wont be able to solve the problem.
So… I WILL SINCERELY HOPE THAT YOU WILL KEEP MY ABOVE WORDS IN MIND. There is another thing I will like to share with you apart from the above:
I DON’T USE MY BLOGS FOR BUSINESS , ITS ONLY PLEASURE, UTILISING MY TIME AND UPGRADING MY WRITING. I WILL NEVER ASK ANY ONE ANY KIND OF FAVOURS- CLICK ON AD, DONATION, AND HELP- NOTHING. IF SOME ONE SEEKS SOME FAVOUR FROM YOU THAT WILL NOT BE ME.
I JUST WANTED MY FRIENDS/ READERS TO KNOW THAT I DONT USE FACEBOOK, ORKUT, TWITTER, SKYPE. IF SOMEONE WANTS TO CONTACT ME HE/SHE CAN USE ANY OF THESE OR MY EMAIL ID- email@example.com
