Facebook and Intimidation

Facebook Etiquette

An individual, an area resident, has been posting some very disturbing comments on Facebook. The comments you see below are typical of what he has sent to at least 3 people.

Please know that you do not have to tolerate this kind of intimidation. Facebook does not provide protection for such individuals. You have the option of reporting to police.

Me: My tensions are high tonight... let's just agree to move along... no hard feelings
Him: No come shut my mouth
Me: How old are you?
Him: Old enough to take your sorry ass when ya coming over tough guy
Me: Distressing how you resort to violence... has it always been that way for you? Do you have a soft side?

His behavior is consistent with the way he blindly "knocked people off" a popular Facebook site while remaining an anonymous administrator. Well defined passive aggressive behavior.

But the bigger issue are the threats and taunts of violence. Earlier this person threatened me to fight him.

My best recommendation is to limit your Facebook time and speak with friends. I try my hardest not to engage anyone who may be hostile. (And watch your kids if you have any!)  Thank You
