Bullying - What can I do ? - July 26th 2013, 03:30 PM

Firstly this has been going on for around 3 years now, and I've just about had enough. I will give you a little insight on myself and where this all come about so people understand a little better.

I have been keeping and breeding reptiles since 2006, I have never had a issue with who and when I sell them. I am a very responsible owner, and double check where they going etc. Never sold a ill or doggy animal before, and never had any complaints from my customers. I was friends with someone called Jon, he turned very nasty for one reason or another which I don't know. Than started to spread untrue rumors about me. People being people joined in on this. And because of this I now have a bad reputation about myself and my hobby.

I have tried changing my Facebook name and hobby name, this has not worked at all. Tried blocking these people, but they keep spreading these rumors regardless of weather they are blocked or not. I have various screen shots of messages and comments sent to me or said about me. I really want this to stop. I have asked these before if they would stop and they haven't. It's slander towards my hobby and cyber bullying surely ? Is there anything I can actually do. As this is ruining my future dreams and goals ?

Hi Charlie, Sorry to hear about this, if its all on a social networking site, such as facebook or twitter you can report the user so the site management people take a look at it. If you believe its cyber bullying you can go to the police as its a crime, as its classed a harassment. Try not to let the rumors and comments affect you and rise above it, don't respond to them or it aggravates the situation.
Hope this helps, i'm always here if you want to talk.

I found that Facebook done nothing about it. Even after contacting FB directly and reporting the profiles of the people causing the issue. Like I have said its ruining my hobby at this moment in time, so kinda hard to rise above their comments. I haven't be writing back to their messages or comments, as I know this 9 out of 10 times makes the situation worst than it is

Hey there, Charlie!

You're right not to reply to these comments, as it tends not to do much for you.

I agree with Jenny. If Facebook aren't doing anything, I'd advise you approach the police. You mentioned that you have screenshots of the comments, so you can print them out. Like Jenny said, this is harassment, which is a crime.

Best of luck getting this sorted out. Take care of yourself.
