"E-Stalking/Harassment"
 
I have an account on a particular website on which I am very active. Recently I have been stalked and harassed on a daily basis by an extremely immature person. The comments that this person posts are pertaining to my appearence (which aren't very hurtful, just extremely annoying). Anything I post on the website get flooded with harassing comments and derogatory terms. Though I know that this person is obviously a delusional/immature individual who has nothing better to do with their time than stalk others, it is really starting to bother me. The personal comments are pretty bad but I realize that they emerge from a deeper place (jealousy?). I am not the type of person to talk negatively about others so obviously I did not bring this onto myself. I simply began receiving negative comments about a photo and now any time I post anything onto the website this person goes crazy with insults. Is there anything I can do to stop this?
I've already tried to get the person banned, but I'm not sure whether or not that is going to work since the website is open to the public and does not require registration. Also, the person doesn't always use a name, though it is obviously the same individual since I don't get attacked randomly, this is the first time it's started happening and it just won't stop. Other than ignoring it, is there anything else I can do? It is really starting to bug me. People can't be civil these days. It's all about harassment and making themselves feel better by putting others down.

Have you ever thought about blocking this kid? Or you could report him. You also could create a new account and have a different name and place you live at and you can always re add your friends.
