This wisdom page gives excellent advice to anyone being harassed over the Internet, as well as to investigators working on Internet harassment cases
How Harassers harm their own situations
Federal law Title 18, Section 875 says 5 years in prison for making violent threats over the Internet
As the Internet has grown, we are now seeing harassment on the larger Internet servers like Youtube and Facebook. Teenagers have a tendency to argue and namecall a little, but lately we are seeing full fledged harassment campaigns being launched against people due to their political or religious views, or because they promote lawsuits against some large corporation, or for any reason. Many harassment tactics are designed to confuse people or create fear, so it's important never to get scared and to avoid confusion. This website explains why a person being harassed really shouldn't worry too much. The way to counter harassment is to stick with good morals. Stay good yourself.
By sticking with goodness, 100% honesty, and love for all people, we are pretty much immune to harassment, confusion and fear. We protect ourselves by staying good ourselves.
How Harassment basically works
A harasser harms his own situation more than anyone else
If a person harasses or tries to harm someone, the person doing the harassing always harms himself much more than the person he is trying to harass. Although the person being harassed may suffer some harm, it is the person trying to harm someone else who actually damages his own situation much more than anyone else. This is because he is the doing one it. The harassment is his. It is of him. It is not of me or of you. Nor is it from me or you. The harassment is coming from him, so it is his. He is the one creating and pushing the harassment. Therefore, he is subject to it more than anyone else.
If a person doesn't harass or try to harm anyone, he will do fine in life and has little to worry about. It's basically like this with everything in life. As long as you stay good, you will do good and good things will always happen in your life. If a person starts harassing someone, or tries to harm someone or lies, or acts tricky and deceptive, then the person doing it will confuse himself more than anyone else because he is the one doing it.
If a person receives some Internet harassment that is minor, it's usually wise to just ignore it. If it's serious, then it may be better to notify the police and consider filing a lawsuit, but don't get back at the person. One reason is, if someone who gets harassed then tries to get back at the harasser, when federal investigators come in to look around, they are going to see two people harassing each other back and forth. As such, they may just figure it's two people arguing, harassing each other equally, which is why it's so important to refrain from trying to get back at anyone over the Internet. When law enforcement comes in, they might only see you doing the harassing and arrest you. All because someone harassed you but you tried to retaliate by having poor morals too? Federal criminal law doesn't allow anyone to retaliate against anyone else, no matter what the reason.
Never be scared
Never be scared or confused if you see poor moral behavior. Just ignore it and move away from it. Remember that a harasser harms his own situation more than anyone else because he is the one doing it. If someone is trying to confuse or scare someone, that individual is actually harming his own situation more than anyone else. His poor morals will hold him back. King Solomon teaches all of this in the Book of Proverbs.
It is foolish to do anything back to anyone, since you then would be engaging in poor morals yourself too, and thus you will then harm your own situation to some degree. People targeted for harassment are sometimes falsely told some innocent person harassed them, when in fact that innocent person did not harass anyone. This is a very subversive tactic that people have to watch out for, and this is why its so important not to try to get back at anyone.
One growing tactic used over Youtube, is that someone harasses another person, perhaps makes a clone page on them, then the perpetrator feeds fake information to one of the victim's friends, falsely pointing the finger at some other innocent person as the culprit, someone who had nothing to do with the offense. The perpetrator hopes to get the victim angry at someone else, to shift the blame away from him. Pushing around false information to obstruct a federal criminal investigation is a violation of Chapter 73 federal Obstruction laws which can send the perpetrator to federal prison for up to 20 years for trying to obstruct a case or intentionally confuse it with false information.
Again, the way to handle most Internet harassment is to avoid and ignore it. If it's serious harassment, then certainly report it and gather the evidence to file a federal lawsuit. If the harassment occurs over a large server like Youtube or Facebook, you might be able to sue those corporations for failing to provide adequate security. Get the evidence, report it to law enforcement, and hire a lawyer to sue. You can even file the lawsuit yourself if you cannot find a lawyer who can do Internet lawsuits (many lawyers cannot).
Some people make a mistake by thinking they themselves should respond to someone with poor morals by themselves lying, mocking or being tricky. This is extremely foolish to do because, first, if the offense is trivial then the person is wasting his time and energy. He is doing little more than engaging in poor morals himself. Second, if the offense is serious, then when federal investigators come in and see that the victim himself was harassing and lying to people too, they may drop the case entirely because the investigators will think the victim is partaking in the harassment and is part of it. They think "Oh this is a case of two people arguing and fighting with each other, they are both at fault". This can result in no prosecutions against real perpetrators. If the victim also lies and has poor morals, then the victim may have a very tough time suing.
This is why the best rule of thumb is, stay good yourself.
Stick with your own goodness and love
* Be 100% honest
* Have love for all people (like the Rock stars have)
* Be completely non-violent and never do anything to harm anyone,
* Always do good things to help people.
Staying good like this will make you pretty much immune to any external forms of harassment coming into your life and causing serious problems.
If the Internet harassment offenses are serious, you may be able to get a lawyer to file a federal lawsuit. It's always better to have a lawyer handle your case, but many law schools today are not educating law school students how to sue for hi tech Internet offenses. So if you can't find a lawyer, the Constitution allows you to act as your own attorney.
Lawsuits for Internet harassment
If the lawsuit is complicated and you don't know if you can do it yourself, ask someone you trust to help you. Perhaps give them a percentage of your lawsuit. A fair contract for helping someone subjected to serious harassment would be to give the person helping 20% of the lawsuit money, as payment for helping gather the evidence and such. The person helping would basically be called a secretary. Money makes things happen in life. The lack of money can stop even the best things from happening.
If a person engages in corruption, lying and poor morals, it
will always inhibit that person's ability to accomplish things
How harassers become unable to do things properly
If someone intends to cause harm, or to denigrate or humiliate another person, the result is that the person doing it will become less able to do things properly. A harasser becomes more confused and frustrated because his own intentions are problematic. His poor morals are within him. He is not working with goodness, honesty, and love for all people. He is instead moving with nastiness and lies, all of which interfere with his own ability to do things properly because he is the one doing it, not me or you. The immorality is his. It is not mine or yours.
A harasser becomes especially unable to do complex computer work because of his own immorality. His lies confuse himself more than anyone else. His intent to confuse or trick someone will harm his love and goodness which is required to do complicated hi tech work. He becomes much less able to fix computers, nor can a person with poor morals accomplish higher level activities like writing good new music, creating really good humor, designing and building things, and similar. People who engage in immorality, who try to harm or hurt people's feelings, will not only become unable to accomplish things in life, but people with good morals will stay away from a person with poor morals.
The same is true if a person calls names or makes derogatory comments about another person. It shows that the person saying the comments is having problems in his own life more than anything else, not the person it's being said about. Think about it, if a person is doing well in life, would he go around talking bad about other people? Certainly not. He wouldn't waste his time. People who verbally mock on others or put people down will have far fewer friends than they were just nice and has good manners.
Many of us know a person who seems to always make derogatory comments about other people. Have you ever noticed that kind of person has few friends, doesn't do much business, and doesn't have much money? It is the person who constantly makes derogatory comments about other people who harms himself more. This is different from someone who, for example, says "Joey broke his leg last week. I hope he is okay". This type of statement shows compassion by describing a problem with hope for goodness. It shows caring for the person. It offers good will and the desire to see the person get better.
If you hear any person say a nasty comment or depraved remark about someone, feel sorry for the person who made that statement. He is harming his own situation more than anything else. It's the person whose mouth the poor morals come from, who harms his own situation more than anyone else.
One of the best moral teachers showing us how to counter serious harassment is King David, from his wisdom teachings of 3,000 years ago. These are found in the Old Testament of every Bible in Psalms. King David was subjected to all sorts of harassment, defamation, false accusations, and more. He went through it beautifully because the whole time he remained good, honest and compassionate. He continued to have love for good and love for all people. In the beginning he hated and wanted to get back at the harassers, but as time went on he realized that hating is a waste of time. King David's wisdom is to be read in a non superstitious manner, understanding that God is love, and that God dwells in us. All of us. God is also defined as immense goodness and kindness, absolute perfection and beauty. God is the Maker of heaven and earth. God is our creator.
Lying harms the person who lies more than anyone else
If a person creates lies, he is basically saying "lies and deception are good and okay". Therefore, he accepts lies and he is subject to lies himself, more than anyone else. What comes from a person is of that person. If a person who lies comes across deception in the future, because he already engages in lies, he finds it harder to see what is true because his creation and acceptance of own lies will cloud his own mind. A person is subject more to what he himself does, creates and says. If a person lies, he confuses himself more than anyone else and will find it almost impossible to do complicated hi tech work. Immorality creates problems for the person who engages in it.
When a person is honest in what he says and does in life, he can more easily see what is honest and true in the world, in general. A person who is trustworthy and has good intentions for other people has fewer problems in life. His mind is calm, clear and carefree. Honesty and trust allows people to do much better in life, whether this be writing new music, running businesses, investigating a lawsuit, or creating good humor. A person who lies a lot becomes unable to use computers or high technology very well. People usually choose not to associate with someone who lies, mock on people or starts trouble.
Healing up from the damage someone with poor morals does to himself
If a person who has been lying, mocking on people and trying to harm others, then he has been causing moral damage to himself. As explained previously, that damage then makes it harder for him to accomplish things, to do hi tech work, to have good friendships, etc. He can heal up, but to do so, he must get back into good morals and immediately stop lying or harassing people. He will feel much better too.
From when a person stops doing immoral things, it will take time for him to recover. The greater the immorality he was engaging in, the longer it will take for him to heal up, but he will always feel better immediately when he stops engaging in poor morals.
Example, if a person was just mocking on people and lying once in a while, he might heal up in a few days to get back into complete goodness. If, however, a person has been lying, harassing and causing problems for people for years, then it can take months for the person to recover, even years, from when he stops. Worse yet, if someone committed a violent crime like rape or murder, then it can take decades for the criminal to recover from the harm he has done to himself, which is why it's better never to engage in such things in the first place.
