The Taboo That Benefits the Abuser

Psychopath Resistance


Dr George K Simon, author of
In Sheep’s Clothing—Understanding and Dealing With Manipulative People:

sheepsclothing“Recognizing the inherent aggression in manipulative behavior and becoming more aware of the slick, surreptitious ways that manipulative people prefer to aggress against us is extremely important. Not recognizing and accurately labeling their subtly aggressive moves causes most people to misinterpret the behavior of manipulators and, therefore, fail to respond to them in an appropriate fashion. Recognizing when and how manipulators are fighting with covertly aggressive tactics is essential.”

What Dr Simon is urging us to do when we are faced with a toxic, covertly aggressive individual is to recognize and address their nasty maneuvers. Knowledge about psychopathic traits is helpful, as well as a good measure of self-awareness.

Some pathological and fantastical liars seem to be unaware that there is a real reality out there, confusing reality with the verbal claim of reality. Sociopaths simply use words for strategic…

Attorney Disciplinary Commission Takes On Complaint of Harassment

Harassment by electronic means is an issue now before the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.

ardcThe case is pending, but I’m reporting on it because the attorney has admitted that she “…regrettably sent…” the subject communications. The attorney has denied that she did so for the purpose to embarrass, delay or burden the employees of the firm that contracted with her.

The purpose of the attorney disciplinary process is not to punish the attorneys for misconduct, but to safeguard the public, maintain the integrity of the profession and protect the administration of justice from reproach.

The attorney is Cynthia Jean Koroll, who has been licensed to practice law in Illinois since November 2001.  The practice of law is her third career after serving in the military, being a registered nurse, and teaching nursing for a university.   Continue reading

New York Man Sentenced To 24 Months in Prison For Internet Offenses, Including “Doxing” and Cyber-Stalking

cyberbullying-and-doxxingOn July 11, 2016, the United States Department of Justice published a press release announcing the sentencing of Mir Islam of New York, NY.   Islam, 22-years old, was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison on three federal charges stemming from a conspiracy to commit various crimes related to the “swatting” and “doxing” of dozens of victims, interstate transmission of threats, cyber-stalking, making a false bomb threat against a university in Arizona ,and a pattern of online harassment constituting cyber-stalking against a university student.  All of the charges stem from Islam’s activities that took place between February and September 2013.

Mir Islam, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Bangladesh, was arrested in September 2013. In addition to the prison time, the Honorable Randolph D. Moss ordered Islam to be placed on three years of supervised release following the prison term.  During his supervised release, Mir Islam must agree to computer monitoring and other conditions.

Santiago Rodriguez Files Fraudulent Copyright Infringement Notice


On October 17, 2016, I received notification from Automattic that Santiago Rodriguez filed  a DMCA notice against this blog.  It was for a photo that I posted on Cyberharassers Make Direct Threats To Blogger Xena – Update.   The photo is from Santiago’s Facebook page, “Diego Rodriguez” and I captioned it as such.   As of this posting, the link is still active.

Here’s the notice;

Appeals Court Reinstates Anthony Elonis’ Conviction For Threats On Facebook

Cross posted from We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident.

Last year, this case caught much attention and I was informed by some victims of cyberharassment that law enforcement used the case decision as an excuse to not pursue charges for online threats.  Some internet trolls were happy with the U.S. Supreme Court decision, assuming it addressed free speech.  The decision did not.  Rather, it addressed the reasonable person standard in the jury’s instructions, finding that the standard should have been reckless disregard.

Internet Harasser Airs Her Personal Business On The Radio

This is in response to the following that Soroya apparently directed at me:


This blog post is to benefit Soroya’s attorneys so they won’t have to look far for what she purports are “violations.”

In preparation of a game, a football coach will watch videos of plays by other teams.

A professional fighter will watch videos of fights by the person they are going to compete against in the ring.

When a country is attacked, they gather intel to identity the attacker and develop plans on  how to respond.

I was attacked by Soroya Fambro, a stranger. I wanted to know who this stranger is and why she thought it so important to harass me for 3 months, take a break, and re-start 6 months later.

But mostly, I needed to know what type of individual would allow themselves to be exploited twice by Santiago Rodriguez, who in November 2015, is the person who threatened to use rumors and harassment to ruin me.   Out of 20 people or more who turned Santiago down to smear and harass me, why is Soroya the only person who took his bait?

Unlike Soroya, I am not giving her the identity of another person.  Soroya made her name and photos public.  Unlike Soroya, I am not mocking her age, nor making up a name for her child (if she is a mother), and denigrating him.  And, unlike Soroya, I am not calling her a liar for things she has publicly written or said about her personal life.

What I write about Soroya Fambro’s background is based on what she created.  It is information that Soroya voluntarily made public.  On February 5,  2016, Soroya appeared on Xandermonium, a blog talk radio program hosted by Xander Gibba .

Soroya talked about her arrest for child endangerment and the alleged police brutality resulting from that arrest. She talked about her case against Walmart; that she filed a civil rights case and a legal malpractice case.  When the radio host asked Soroya had she considered counseling, she responded that she went to a psychiatrist for five and a half years.  Continue reading

Cyberharassment and Legal Fees

Thank you again my dear friend, in showing your support and thinking out loud to what the harasser plans. Soroya has been quiet these last few days and I hope it stays that way. She seems to have interest in fashion and design, and that should be more important to her than taking dictation from a harasser to slander people she does not know.


This is a continuation of showing support for my friend, Xena, who is being viciously harassed, smeared, lied upon, and demeaned by @sofambro90 on Twitter as directed by Santiago Rodriguez.   Through Soroya Fambro, Xena is also being wrongfully accused of being someone else, which is something that Santiago has done to others.

For some history on the cyberharassers, see my post at this link.

There’s no doubt that Santiago is directing Soroya Fambro, aka @sofambro90.  On 10/09/2016, she tweeted this:


Soroya’s knowledge of Santiago’s case in “Washington State” and defending him tells us plainly that she is being fed that information by Santiago Rodriguez.    Soroya is also taunting David Piercy (DP) with things that only Santiago would know, or that Santiago is telling Soroya to tweet for the purpose of intimidation.

Random Thoughts About Internet Harassment

Since opening this blog, I’m happy to say that I’ve met some really neat people although it’s sad that the path of being victimized is the reason we met.

I’m also happy to say that there were good exchanges with people that I would not have had if not opening this blog.

I take my hat off to Michael Thacker who is the only person I originally named as a harasser who was ethical enough to apologize for his participation in harassing and doxing activities.

I also take my hat off to Rumpole.  Some might disagree with his opinions on some issues, as I do, but he never took part in the doxing, slander and harassment.  When Rumpole saw a harasser going overboard, and particularly in harassing women online, he spoke up.

Pew research statistics show that more women are harassed and stalked on the internet than men.

pew-researchBased on my experience and observations, there are women who look for, and collude with men to harass and stalk other women on the internet.  Many of the cyberharassment victims I met last year were women who were attacked by a man who targeted them because of a woman.

There are also men on the internet who look for and collude with women to harass other women.  I’m currently going through that experience with a man using a woman to verbally abuse, threaten, and harass myself and others.

The internet harassment that I speak about, that I experienced, and that other victims who I’ve spoken with experience, goes beyond name-calling.  When harassers seek out or have your personal information and that of your family, where you live, where you work, where your spouse works, etc., it is no longer internet harassment.  It has crossed the line into your personal life.  Even when harassers have the wrong personal information, the fact that they are looking feels like a personal violation.

Support for Xena, A Victim of Internet Harassment

I am very grateful for your support. After enduring uninvited abuse and harassment since November 2015,  it did me good to talk to someone. Thank you.


Leave Me Alone

“You consistently harass me on the internet
Would you please leave me the HELL alone
You have no value, you have no class
I wish someone would diminish your A**”

Eve 831

At the outset, I am deeply troubled by Soroya Fambro’s recent attack on blogger Xena and her blog We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident.  I’ve watched for months and taken the recommendation to ignore.  There are other recommendations and one is to give emotional support to victims of internet harassment and cyberstalking.  It is time that I speak up in support of my friend, Xena.

The harassment includes vicious lies, doxing the wrong people, threats to increase the harassment, and a death wish that the harassment will cause Xena’s death by heart attack.

Here’s a sample of what the harasser is doing so readers can understand why I feel the need to support…
