I have certainly had my fair share of PITAs from other posters on many another forum. Had one on Findlaw whom I was trying to help with his legal research for his various legal problems but he used personal information I had given him via e-mail to make many libelous attacks on me using a multitude of anonymous names for almost four years and in hundreds of posts. Some of these were even close approximations of my real name or sarcastic copies of other posts I had made. The man was extremely creative though.
