I have a blog that can be a little controversial at times. I allow people to post their own opinions on whatever I write about in my blog columns. I don't allow people to use anything but their real names, however, and I think that's why I don't see a lot of online harassment or cyber bullying at my own site. If someone is allowed to post anonymously or under a false identity, he or she might feel like harassment of others is okay. I also moderate posts if I think the poster is being deliberately mean to others.
I have also experienced cyberstalking myself, and I can't say I liked it much. I wouldn't call myself a celebrity by any means, but my blog is very popular and there are some people who leave very inappropriate comments. One woman left a message containing personal details about my family members, my home town and my workplace, even though I never mention any of that on my blog. If people want to find you on the Internet, there are plenty of ways to do it.
