RE: "Personal Trolls": What motivates these guys?
I've had something like this happen twice, both on the same non-Mercedes-related forum. Oddly, both were women, one whom simply took a disliking to me for an unknown reason and followed me around on the site acting a bit wacky about it. She toned it down a lot after being shouted down by other posters and failing to garner any support for her 'case'.
The second thought I was after her husband, and tried to find out real-life info about me (phone number, address) and posted it, which in my mind defines the line between a pest and a stalker. Oddly enough, she was such a poor stalker that she posted info for someone completely unrelated to me (someone she found on Orkut who shared some group with her husband and who lives in my state), and then was banned shortly after finding and posting my cellphone number. She's moved on to other female stalkees who she has now decided are after her husband :)
I figure, you can't call it stalking until someone you don't know is peeking through your windows at you at night. And I have 9mm remedies for that ;)
