I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU TO ALL WHO RESPONDED WITH HELPFUL ADVICE. I THINK I CAN GO BACK TO WHERE I RECIEVE MY MAIL AND GET THEIR IP ADDRESS AND HAVE THEM BLOCKED.

Sharon, if you have a valid concern, you should make your posts "members only".   Go to visibility right under your blog entry box and check "members only"; that way you will not receive any such weird messages.

Problem solved.  When can we see a picture of you? 

For positive inspiration, please join our Optimist Group!

For more wonderful tips, please subscribe to my blog!  Good luck!

If some weirdo has joined AR under some false pretext, just delete his/her messages every time he makes a comment.  If you shut him up often enough, he'll get the message.  People only torment us if we let them.

Rob, you might be right.  My attitude has always been "in your face"; it's kept me out of a lot of trouble...  I once attacked my attacker and he fled.  I learnt that sometimes the best way to deal with it is in "in your face".  Perhaps by posting a picture and showing that she is NOT intimidated, she stands up to him and forces him DOWN & OUT!  Just a thought...

Sorry that you have encountered some jerk. They will always be out there. Report it to AR and let them try to deal with it. I hope the situation gets resolved for you soon.

Oh my Sharon: I would hope it is not a Active Rain member. I'm sure it is not. Just as Keishia said... Prob just passers by from the general public. Sorry this happened to you.

Yes welcome to AR and to all the craziness the web brings to our lives.  The stuff I get in my inbox makes me blush just by it being there.

Makea-I did report this to ar and it wasn't spam. I have a friend that is a computer geek and he is tracking it back with ip address. Boy, I have learned alot about a computer and what to look for when you get your email.

 

I would like to Thank Everyone for there commets and support. This is now getting the proper attention it needs.

Sharon,
Sorry this happened.  Others have given you the right advice to report to AR.  Thankfully, these sick people are in the minority here.

That's crazy....report it to AR Rich Jacobson or Bob Stewart or Nicole Ray...send the link and the email address or IP...they will report it. On a lighter note...I never received anything like that. More like how ugly I am.:)
