My wife and I have been receiving harassing and threatening email messages over the past week!
This is not a literary post, sorry. Instead, my mind has been elsewhere and I've been preoccupied with bizarre happenings. It's a very long, complicated story, and due to certain variables, I do not feel at liberty to share details. For that, I apologize.
So, my week started off, last week, with email messages threatening that, if I get in this certain man's way, there will be no hole deep enough for me to hide in. Further, if I do or don't do this or that, he'll not be responsible for what happens. (Um, yes he will, and I told him so in a terse reply, in which I stated I am not easily intimidated, nor do I intend to run from this moron.) In another email, he sent links to sites that were allegedly about him, "confirming" his paranormal powers (LOL!) and his mind control ability, and the notion that those who have gotten in his way and disregarded his warnings (like the ones he has given me) have ended up dead!!! Yeah, can you believe that? Meanwhile, my wife continues to get condescending, critical, mean-spirited messages talking about things like hog-tieing someone who backs out on his wishes and dragging them to his feet. This man, IMO, is a delusional, psychotic asshole! I could say much, much more, but I won't.
Here's the issue. Should we believe he's a bag of hot wind (since he HAS lied to us about some things) and his "powers" are bullcrap? Or should we be worried that an obvious delusional psychotic could snap and wind up at our doorstep with his alien friends in tow, and a shotgun to boot?
I've taken some basic self defense measures, but they are not enough if option two occurs. We have also dug up quite a bit of dirt on this scumbag, and are seeking more. We have not yet gone to the authorities for multiple reasons which I won't discuss here.
If anyone reads this, please wish us luck. We would like to take this sucker down, and resume our lives free from harassment and overt and/or implied threats of any kind....
