Have You Ever Been Stalked on Youtube?

I had a friend on youtube tell me that you know you are gaining a reputation when you get your own trolls, however recently I am starting to think that my handful is really one guy. I have been paying attention to the times that my trolls post via the email messages you get when someone leaves a comment on your page. They all seem to show up around the same time, and on the same types of videos. What should I do? Has anyone else experienced something like this? I can't prove its the same guy, and while I don't feel threatened or harrashed yet, should I report my suspiscions?

I personally have never had the misfortune to be stalked on YouTube, or at all in fact. However, I cannot begin to imagine how horrid and uncomfortable it must be to be stalked by another individual. I hope you manage to resolve this issue soon, as you clearly do not deserve such unfair treatment

Thanks for the kind words. It seems as if the activity has calmed down, so maybe the person got bored, I will see for sure when my mac is out of the shop and return to my regular activities on the site.

Personally I have never had this happen to me but I have heard of this kind of thing in the past with other people. I would report the person to youtube even though you do not feel threatened yet, as they may be doing a similar thing to other people as well. These kinds of people really need to be stopped.

I don't want to jump to conclusions just yet. While I have a hunch its the same person, I do not know for sure. Other than banning a person, or reporting them, is it any other way to control what subscribers see of your activities? I think this person subbed recently, and has been following my comments, and looking into what I watch, that's the only way I can figure that they've been able to track me sort to speak.

I haven't experienced a thing like that. All I can recommend is that block these accounts, if you feel disturbed by them. I don't see any threat here, but I repeat, I haven't seen anything like that. If the thing starts to get dangerous or really disturbing, ask for help from YouTube staff.

I haven't had this happen to me, I don't really comment much on anything or upload anything, just watch videos, but I think you should block the person and report it.
