I've been targeted by two psychos on Pogo.

I absolutely love Pogo . I find it to be the most interactive and friendly gaming site on the web . I spend quite a bit of time earning my badges and dressing up my mini , chatting with Pogo friends all over the country and getting higher rankings . I was so disturbed when two independent people started following me around from room to room saying that I was rude and vulgar and that I had been harrasing them . I'd never encounterd them before and I'm friendly to everyone on there . I flagged them and found that one of them still was able to locate me wherever I went . I know I blocked them so I don't really understand how that was possible . Has anyone else experienced anything like that ?

I have never personally had a stalker, but I can only think of 1 way that they would still be able to follow you after reporting them and blocking their names. If their name has and I or an L in it, they can simply change it to the other. In pogo an l looks the same as an i, in small letters. If this is possible, maybe you can add as a friend with the different spelling and try blocking again that way. Hope this helps a little. And try to enjoy pogo, we are there for fun and shouldn't have to deal with the idiots out there.

Thankks Heather . It's so sad that I wasn't the only one something like this has happened to . I guess these people aren't satisfied with all the games they can play . Perhaps they're looking for more excitement .

I can not say that this has ever happend to me on pogo. I love the game also and play it all the time it is the best gaming site around as far as I am concerned. If you have blocked this person and they are still following you then I would say that the next step would be to contact pogo and file a complaint about this person. Have them check and see if this person has any other accounts in the same name so that you could block those also. Unfortunatly if they have more than one they will still be able to chase you around until you can get them all blocked.

Thanks for the advise , but Pogo has taken care of the situation . The problem was that it took them awhiile to do anything about it and I was so uncomfortable going there to play . I didn't want to wind up losing my cool and say something that would damage my reputation or offend anyone else that was playing in the room .
