Not on the subject of dolls, hence OT for DoA but perhaps appropriate here....
What gives with people who trawl DoA member profiles for IM details so they can ping someone randomly out of nowhere?
I just had reseau_neurologique
randomly ping me out of thin air, claiming that I actually know him and that we met at a doll meet in Upper Sexton and that I'd allegedly agreed to take on a commission to "desex" a male doll of his. Uh, hello? My profile states clearly that I'm in the UK - I'm not even sure I know where the hell Upper Sexton is
! (Isn't it in Texas or something? Not the UK, AFAIK.) I've never been out of the UK! And I've certainly never agreed to any commissions for that kind of mod; hell, I don't do commissions, period.
He then admitted that he knew full well I didn't know him and that he was doing it "to be entertaining". (You can see a log of the whole thing here
Well, sorry, but IMing a complete stranger and trying to wind them up like that isn't entertaining. It's annoying. I've blocked him, but sad to say this isn't the first time something like this has happened.
It didn't take place via PM, so it doesn't really count as the sort of harassment I could ask a mod to look into; I've put reseau_neurologique on my Ignore list on DoA anyway so preventing any further crap there. I just wonder, what gives with the mentality of people like that? Why would you just randomly IM someone you don't know anyway, for no good reason?
Oh yeah, and IMing someone and saying "I'm outside your window" isn't entertaining. It's just creepy.
Anyway, rant over. Has this happened to anyone else, or did I just get unlucky?
