@fanofhorrorgames 
I think you need to take a step back from being so forthcoming with information that may link you back to personal profiles in the first instance. A lot of people know me here personally from a previous username and I changed it to this one, Not for any specific reason but just to disassociate my actual name from the internet. Still, 90% of people here can find me on facebook if they wanted too and my mobile number with ease. 
Its just about not making yourself a target for others to mess with and not exhibiting a narcissistic personality. No one here (or they would be banned quick smart) will target you or cause you grief. 

It seems you enjoy doing what you do and should keep at it, you just need to find the community that wants to receive your content and input in a positive way. 

Best of luck.

your worried about a troll following you round different forums then you make a post about everything you have done in film?

 

way to make it easy for them.

 

 

He has already viewed (and pinched) that stuff anyway...

 

 

If he's already done that, what are you worried about? Sorry, I'm a bit lost here. I prefer to keep to myself too but I don't go around promoting my radio show unless people ask me about it.

 

 

You have a radio show?

I'm surprised no one has posted this yet.

The only avenue you have is via the authorities. NZ privacy laws means even if you can supply an IP address with exact date and time there is nothing an ISP can do. The same applies is if was Sky complaining you were downloading copyright material. They wanted to become the internet Police from their content and all the ISPs apart from Vodafone said get stuffed.

Well, I haven't been harassed by him on forums in a while. He did attempt to flood my email address on AOL, with those 'you requested a new password' emails. Everyone else I complained to eventually dealt with him. I wanted to delete my AOL handles a long time ago, but unlike Outlook, Yahoo! and Google email accounts, that ain't possible. It was to prove to be to my advantage though, as I kept on closing other types of email accounts that could be deleted. Then I was finding down the road that when websites moved to other servers one day, I was not able to use my old password due to the convention, and not being able to sign back on or send off for a new password was a real nuisance. So using 'lifetime' addresses is probably smarter (to an extent). 

 

However, I can disable all incoming mail anyway, so if he wanted to spam me, it would be pointless. I think he knows I know what his ISP likely is, as I asked people on another forum about it, and they were quite helpful. It's not really a coincidence for somebody to use a New Zealand IP address after knowingly harassing me with that subnet, then using that same IP address the same day to edit New Zealand related pages (like Frankie Stevens), when loads of his other accounts (even ones he rarely had used, from years ago) had did the same things. Although no offense intended...but I think Internet forums aren't what they were, many years ago. I've found that in recent years, I'm only like one of several users that even posts anything fresh on some of the, i.e. survival horror gaming communities that still exist. Although, they are serving more as an archive today than the once lively forums they used to be. It's like Facebook came by and mucked up everything. 

 

All the best...

Those wikipedia edits if recent will be logged against a customer ip address if in new zealand and with a major isp that doesnt use CG-NAT

 

If the forums are small, the admins might be contactable and willing to turn on ip address logging. 

 

NZ recently passed an anti cyber bullying law http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11473545 

 

The police would be able to use a pattern of behavior if you could supply as much info as possible.

Yeah. I asked a moderator before if they could give up logs, but he said that their "privacy policy" doesn't allow for giving away info like that. If only it was that easy. However, since he did post under his own IP address many times, without a handle, I guess that may count as evidence, especially if he has other banned accounts which are linked to the same IP address. It's the tracing of one's IP address that ultimately catches the troll. I'll even email you the IP address if you want.

 

Is the Internet in New Zealand cable broadband? Wikipedia's moderating team have traced many accounts over the past several years in their sock puppet investigation, that all linked back to him. From what I gather, it seems he was making multiple accounts to serve as ducks in case he was banned, or to add extra votes to a poll. Since an IP address changes with dial-up, it's more likely this is the IP address he uses from home with a broadband account. 

 

He was following me around on the Get Satisfaction support forums for IMDb. Every single time I made a thread a while ago, a newly registered member with no prior posts would then reply among other respondents, and this isn't a general chat forum where people are likely to see topics that immediately. Some responses were from the staff, but it seemed unlikely a member with no prior posts would reply like this. So I found out that he had one of the same aliases on Wikipedia, so he was likely just following my ID and signing up a new account each time he wanted to say something. He stalked me to a relationships site, and he said he was using a different name because he didn't want it interfering with his standing at IMDb, and he was harassing me on Resident Evil forums and uploading avatars based on people I know, where he posted about the series so much, but then he went around harassing me at other sites while claiming he didn't play Resident Evil. He said he was 'one of five individuals' out for payback, and made alts to reply to his own threads, abused me for admitting I like transgender people, and also sent people to my friend's home after he got his address from one of our videos. Because he kept editing on my page at the Acting Wiki, I had to get them to turn off editing. When I asked IMDb to do that too, I was told that because it's a database that anybody can edit, they cannot disable editing. But they said I can report the fake posters. Etc.

Not sure why the Privacy Policy in quotes. Privacy policies are a very important thing and in New Zealand it is the law.

Geekzone would never hand out personal information such as IP addresses or emails. Other sites probably follow the same policy.

Well, I don't like every Tom, Dick and Harry out there knowing my ISP either, but you cannot always use a VPN at just any site.

Sometimes, websites block proxies. CloudFlare does that.

My 2 cents would be to stop posting your YouTube videos on multiple forums if you're concerned with people following you around the internet. This makes it extremely easy to find your other accounts.

 

While you have your YouTube videos unlisted, your channel has your full name and from 30 seconds of googling the video urls you posted I have found your twitter, starnow profile & multiple forums where you post.

 

 

 

Unfortunately you're feeding this troll every time you post to a new site with the same urls.
