I tend to get hung up on small details, people who have Rp'd with my will be painfully aware but this has been on my mind since I read this and I need clarity.... Did the state police make characters to log into Achaea to have the few minute rp conversation with the person?

Most people who have been playing for a long time recall the Achaean “Free
Credits on Facebook” promotion. You had to try out the Iron Realms games app
and invite your friends. As a result of this promo, many people ended up joining
the Achaea Facebook group.
Well, it turns out that this FB group helps people who you have never
shared a single bit of OOC information with find your Facebook profile. may not
be able to view 99% of your profile, but the 1% they can is all they really
need to start stalking you and messing with your life.
The harassment policy of Achaea is simple: If it doesn’t happen in
Achaea, there is nothing they can or will do about it. I was therefore not
calling out the admins, per se. They
tried to find evidence of the person doing this IC, but his Achaean friends are happy to chat away with him on Skype or
whatever instead of a part or clan chat IC, so he's untouchable.
The admins can only watch people like this for so long before they have
to admit what is already known: This person may be a world class, douchebag who
likes to threaten and mess with women via the anonymity of the internet, but
because he’s doing it outside the game there’s nothing they can do. Hence, the secondary
point of this goodbye posting:
No one is
going to protect you from them. You’re on your own, just as Bluef has been IC for
more time than I care to recall. Take care of yourselves.

@Trey @Draqoom @Strata @Wynedere @Wysteria @Rexia @Skye @Xith @Saeva -- Thank you for your thoughts and comments. They mean a lot to me, truly.
To the rest of you who posted here so far, your comments add nothing to the discussion
beyond revealing what a bunch of assholes have taken up residence in Achaea. It’s
no wonder that people like the dickwad who is messing with my life can find
people to hang out with in dark corners of the internet. @Jacen that goes triple for you.
You know, it might be actions like flagging a post as Abuse where I simply explained what an acronym stood for that lend credence to the drama thing.
Hey I'm gonna pull a @StrataCuria WTF/Abuse below this line plz____________________________________________
I'm baffled by the sudden resurgence in use of the Abuse flag.

What the hell is wrong with some of you people, I don't find anything about this situation amusing, at all. I don't even know what I was expecting from some of you guys, but clearly I gave some of you way too much credit.
High school psychoanalysis aside, I think people's problems with this thread stem from the tone in which Bluef presents her problems. She could have very easily issued herself, or emailed Sarapis or Tecton, and had this handled by the admins to the limits of their capability. Instead, here she is posting a bunch of guff about how she fears for her safety because a couple of nerds on a text game are talking shit about her on Skype.I saw the conversation where people were saying they want to punch her in the face irl, and it was fucking retarded. I am highly sceptical, however, about any of that actually coming to pass. If Decan or whoever is actually stalking her irl, then he's a nutcase and it's good that she got the police involved. However, there are countless ways to avoid interaction with those people on Achaea including the aforementioned ignore function and emailing the game admins if people try to bypass it. The internet is really no different to real life. Anonymity can certainly bring out the worst in people, but other people can only have an effect on you if you let them. I'm sure that if there are people harassing Bluef, this forum thread is exactly what they would've wanted, since it gives them attention. But this is the drama that Bluef thrives upon. She loves the attention just as much as Decan and whoever else. It's dumb.
Keep the thread civil, folks. If you have nothing to contribute beyond an insult, move along. If you have something to contribute, remove the gratuitous insults first. #ForumRule1
