    Goodbye Stratics,

    Its been a crazy ride. I wish all of you nothing but peace, love and success in all your future endeavors. going to miss all of you very, very much. I will be deactivating my UO accounts as I give away my beloved houses. when I am done I will close my stratics account and my existence on stratics will be wiped. So many of you have been good to me. thank you. I unfortunately will have to cease contact with the UO world. I am sorry I wish I could continue to visit with all of you. This is the price you pay when you are cyber stalked. Facebook, my email addresses, icq all must be deactivated. My sister is having to do the same as the stalker is targeting my family as well. I wanted to have chance to say goodbye and let all of you know that I hold no ill will. You will live on in my heart.

    Peace,

    for the last time

    Jirel

    Can you not just try and re-create a new UO "life?" By that I mean change all names, etc.

    I wish you wouldn't quit the stalker wins when you do. I do understand though I wish you, & your sis the best in life. Maybe when things cool down you & your sis will return.

    Sorry to hear it's that bad, but as Duke asked, isn't it salvageable? There might be a dozen people in the whole world who know the link between my half-dozen main characters, but only one who knows all of my characters.

    New e-mail addresses can be obtained, and there are decent privacy settings on Facebook. Just don't use your real name, and be quick to block anyone suspicious.

    Unfortunately it isn't salvageable because of several reasons:

    1) the stalker has our real names.

    2) its moved outside of UO to facebook and they targeting sis as well as me

    3) My sister's char Luc has a unique title she earned at an event. she'd stick out anywhere she moved to in game even with name change.

    4) Our emails were on our facebook....stupid I know....anyway have to close them.

    5) This is what law enforcement instructed us to do, and we are frighten.

    I hate that the stalker wins but law enforcement says close everything then that's what you do. The stalker made chars with our real life names lastnight, our full names.

    Why do some people think they have to win by destroying other people, destroying a game? I'll never understand how someone thinks they win if they are alone...oh well some things are beyond mortal comprehension.


    Luv ya guys...ya know that don't ya?

    Page for harassment. Someone I know went through that, though a number of years ago, and results were delivered.

    1) If you quit your letting some 14 year old cyber twit dictate what you get to do for fun in your life.

    2) Unless there is money or real life property / danger then I would disregard what the cops told you to do. I can honestly say that they just don't get how important UO is to those who play it....or how much time / value is tied up in it.

    3) Outsmart them.... it's not that hard to keep Internet / RL seperated. It really just depends on how serious things are but I've known way too many people that have no filter in ventriloquist and tell you EVERYTHING about their life. Just assume that if you don't know them personally they intend you harm. I was in 1 guild for 7 years / birth of my first born and no one even knew my real name. Anyway...... just apply common sense. Good luck.

    I am sorry if this is going on. But if you have contacted the police. You should really get in touch with Bonnie aka Mesanna. If the police request ip records of the stalker. Broadsword can provide them and lead them to where this stalker is located so they can take it further into catching the scumbag. You shouldnt have to change your life and lose your friends virtual or not we build relationships with each other.

    Have you contacted Mesanna on this matter?
    IF they have gone that far I for one know beyond a doubt she will not tollerate it and will do her best to protect you in our game world.
    This person in game is traceable...
    Beleave me when I say this is not something to ignore.
    Many here are correct when they say you dont need to run from the game and friends you like so well.
    Petra and Taylor can change your ID here and we can keep you safe.
    There are some "People" that have gotten too bold behind their monitors.
    So......
    Title be damned.
    I an quite sure Mesanna can wipe it and help you move to another shard, change names, your accounts can be made safe.
    You and your family I hope stay safe.
    UO is a tight knit community and we want to help you.
    As you are a valued member.
    Try talking to Mesanna and Taylor and Petra to stay with us.
    I hate vermin who pick on others and this is the lowest form of vermin there is.
    Sorry Petra...
    This is the only time I go for anchinet methods of dealing with this kind of non-human behavior.

    Goodbye. When games / facebook / the internet become too much for a person, best thing is cut the ties and get re-acquainted with the real world.

    for future reference, posting personal emails on a public forum, and posting on a public forum about stalkers is not the best idea. id suggest calling a hotline that could better educate about how to handle cybering problems rather than a public videogame forum.

    I have 6 emails. I will deactivate the one that was on my facebook. I called the police this is what I was told to do. Forgive me for caring too much about the community I have been a apart of for 12 1/2 years. I felt ya'll deserve better than me disappearing into the ether without a trace. Obviously I can not do anything right. :(

    The best thing to do is always just ignore idiots online.

    I do not know you but wish you luck. As much as I love UO, your safety and the safety of your family is much more important than a game.I hope things work out for the best and this stalker moron gets what is coming to him!

    I will certainly miss you and your sister at Legends if you two really have to go through with it.
    And I hope that this bloody stalker gets what is coming for him. I know I would like 5 minutes alone with this person to teach him some good manners.

    You two know where to find me if you need anything. I will be there for you lasses.

    Some troll has figured out your name, FB and email adress. He doesn't stop knowing these things once you delete your accounts and leave game clearly very dear to you. So why leave the game? Whatever misfortune is in him knowing your name has already happened.

    I don't know much at all of what has happened. Based solely on your recent posts it seems you are being trolled. Don't care about it and suddenly troll has no power over you. If he/she/"them" knowing your FB account and real name is most " severe thing" that has come out of this, I'd really suggest you just stop caring. Ofc, admittedly it is easy to say all this from sidelines.

    Seriously, you are a woman grown. What can some pathetic facebook stalking basement dweller even do in your FB? Send you some nasty private messages? So what? Just stop caring.
    ..And keep enjoying UO:)

    Gonna have to second this. Seems like she is disrupting her whole life because some neckbeard (or kid) is being a dork, which of course is exactly what that person wants. They are probably in their basement lulz-ing the day away.

    Unless this has REALLY gone out of hand and they are REALLY stalking IRL... which it doesn't seem like they are, it seems pretty silly to react like that. If they were really doing something and you contacted the cops I feel like more would be being done.

    I would just ignore them on UO, keep my facebook private, and if they were emailing me just block them. They will get bored quickly and move on.

    Or like someone said if its still really bad after ignoring them, contact Messana.

    Quitting seems like a really drastic over step to solve this problem.

    Jirel has a history of overreacting to things. She'll likely be back once she calms down. Or calm down before she's really gone.
