Worst of the Web/Cyberbullying


Full disclosure: I'm using a pseudonym. As a result of my volunteeer work, an individual or group of individuals have set up an anonymous blog to post derogatory information about me. They've also doxxed me, regularly harass me on social media, and have attempted to interfere with interviews and appearances related to my work. I would like to pierce the anonymity of the blog to find out who's really behind it. Any advice on how I can go about doing that? Thank you.

Dear Sorcha,

Answering your question here on a free Q & A site that is available for public consumption is not the forum to be asking your questions. Not that they're wrong or innapropriate, but providing the methods would require far too much writing. Given your subject line is cyberbullying, I would have to first assume you're a minor. Here in the USA, cyberbullying is presently defined as a pediatric issues between minors. I'm almost sure questioners with AllExperts must be 18+ years old. I apologize if I'm wrong about the age requirement for AllExperts, but even if I am, I still would not advise a minor in these matters without parental consent. If you're an adult and you mean cyber harassment, internet trolling or adult bullying; there are many ways to work on finding the identity of the blog, but takes some investigative work. Since part of my new career path is helping online users identify online assailants, you're welcome to call me for a consultation at no charge here in New York 347-871-2416. You can also visit our website to learn more about iPredator typologies, which is also all free off charge to access with no personal information required to D/L.
