Well, it's finally happened, kids.

Due to a very creepy situation where someone at work keeps letting me know that he knows, "Allllll about me," I've been forced to make my journal pretty much friends-only.

I've gone back and changed all of my previous posts for the last almost 4 years to "Friends-Only" using HIDE Journal.

From here on out, most of my posts will be Friends-Only with the exception of those that I want to share publicly, like this one.

It's really, really sad that someone would make this attack on me. My LiveJournal has been something that I have honestly enjoyed to the core of me for the last 4 years. I've made some great friends both online and in real life. I've learned so much about other people AND about myself.

The fact that this person took that all away from me not only makes me angry, but it makes me sick. There aren't many things that I really, honestly and truly enjoy like my LiveJournal. And now that's gone.

It's not like my life is over because of this, but a very big, very important part of it is gone in a way. Changed due to someone's creepy stalking and my fear of what might come from that.

*sigh* I'm very upset and I really hate this person right now. I only have so many things that I enjoy and now this is gone too.

You've gotten a lot of sympathy from others here, so I'll play Devil's advocate for a moment and hope you'll forgive me later for a less sympathetic point of view. :)

You've been (sometimes) publishing very personal information about yourself (usually) in an unsecured way on the web. Perhaps you chose to ask indexing sites not to index your journal (not all of them honor this request), but other than that you often took no other steps to keep information about you from being disseminated in the widest possible fashion.

I'm not sure what expectations you had that random, desirable/friendly people might find your journal while random, undesirable/unfriendly people would not. In four years, I doubt that this is the first undesirable person to discover your journal; he was just tactless enough to mention it to you rather than just quietly keep reading.

Even if he read the entirety of your journal (minus protected posts), he still hasn't read anything that you didn't explicitly give him permission to read (by publishing the information online). It is you who published your journal, not him.

So, yes, your colleague is indeed not a very nice person for flaunting his possession of information; I do not dismiss his transgression, but let's be clear that his transgression was not in the reading of your journal.

OK, I'll bite. If Jeff didn't mind the guy reading the journal, then how could the guy possibly have some sort of upper hand? The kind of "nyah-nyah, I know all about you!" comment(s) that the guy is making would hold no weight if Jeff were entirely comfortable with the whole world reading his unprotected posts, yes? Or am I missing something here?

It was fun until someone was like "Ooooo! I know you're a dirty slut who drinks and goes to circuit parties and stuff like that and I know ALLLLLLL about it now!"

I don't do anything that I wouldn't own up to, but I don't want to have it thrown in my face and have my job threatened by this person. It's just really sick to do that to someone.
