Stalking is unwanted or obsessive attention by an individual or group toward another person. In this case Kip Addotta! Stalking behaviors are related to harassment and intimidation and may include following the victim in person or monitoring them on the internet. The later is true, in my case. Yesterday on 10/21/14 I posted a video, on YouTube in which I did a rant on the ravages of liquor and drugs on our society!
I immediately started getting comments from a Stephen Shaeffer accusing me of smoking weed on a video I put up in May of 2011. Stephen Shaeffer went on to infer that I was hypocritical for doing a rant on liquor and drugs while I, myself, was smoking pot. In addition to this he went on to castigate me, saying that I had gone against my statement that my “Word” was 24 carrot gold! I took offense to this and, with that, he accused me of only wanting positive posts, on my videos!
I informed him that I have never deleted a negative post on TouTube before, but he was having none of that! He had been waiting all these years to find a chink in my armor and thought his dream had come true!
The creepy thing about Stephen Shaeffer is that I have never heard from him before, even though he has obviously been monitoring me for years and had eighteen of my videos uploaded to his YouTube page, seemingly waiting for an opportunity to pounce.
The word stalking is used, with some differing meanings, in psychology and psychiatry and also in some legal jurisdictions as a term for a criminal offense.
According to a reports by the National Center for Victims of Crime, “virtually any unwanted contact between two people that directly or indirectly communicates a threat or places the victim in fear can be considered stalking,” although in practice the legal standard is usually somewhat stricter.
Good Day, Mr. Shaeffer!
I am Kip Addotta
