Cyber Stalking – Sick Minds Online
ARE YOU A VICTIM OF A CYBER STALKER?
Welcome to my site Helping Victims Of Cyber Stalkers. I have first hand experience with Cyber Stalkers having been a victim of one for five years. You can find my story on this website but here I want to provide general information on the different types of cyber stalkers and what they have in common.
So where did all these cyber stalkers come from and
what did they do before there was an Internet?
The Internet has opened up opportunities to connect to people all around the world that was not possible just a few decades ago. Social networks enable people to find others with similar interests and share information on a scale never imagined. This new found freedom has come at a price for many unsuspecting internet users as sociopaths, sexual predators and those with a range of personality disorders have also discovered this is a great medium to express their anti-social behavior and find an unlimited source of new victims.
Before the internet they had fewer opportunities to do so, being limited to those in their geographical reach or to sending letters or making harassing phone calls. This is exactly what many did but this type of stalking activity did not get much publicity. Some high profile stalking cases might have appeared in the press from time to time but most were confined to those directly involved and the public was not generally aware of the problem.
The arrival of the internet changed this. What makes the internet so attractive for many stalkers is that it has no geographical limits, they can find victims anywhere in the world. They also have an audience for their activities which provides them with the feedback so many of them crave. Most thrive on the attention they get and the affect their harassment has on the lives of their victims. The more upset they can make their victims the more enjoyable it is to them.
The internet also provides a degree of anonymity. Most cyber stalkers are also cyber-cowards, hiding behind computer screens sending out abuse to people that they would not have the courage to face in person. In real life most feel powerless and have extremely low self esteem. They are often the type of person most people would ignore socially and no one takes seriously. Many are loners with few friends, unable to maintain normal relationships. Others find submissive partners that they can control. In pretty well every measurable aspect of their lives, cyber stalkers are failures who create an online fantasy world to escape their sad, pathetic reality.
