I'm hoping I'm in the right place to post this. Please help me if you can.
A few years ago, I got into an argument with a guy on a chat forum. We didn't like each other. He then posted my real name and address and personal information including my police recird and child support payments and families names and such. So, I left the site and never returned. He tracked me down on Myspace and Facebook and started messaging my friends and family. He made blogs about me and websites about me, all filled with lots of ignorant things about me, insults, etc. At one point, I did say to him something like "I'd love to meet you b/c I'd break your jaw" or something like that. We went back and forth for a while like that, etc.
Then it died down. Now, this clown is back at it. He makes posts about me on forums all over the internet. They are very insulting and he has dragged my family into it again. I have emailed him and literally begged him to stop. He refuses to stop. He even said "me and my biker buddies might have to come see you soon, and you won't like that."
The bottom line is, what are my options? I just want it to stop. I'd like to file a civil or criminal suit against him, but I don't know his real name or location. I don't need to sue him, but even if I got $5 out of him, and a judge issued an order for him to cease all actions related to me and my family, I'd be thrilled. He does operate a website, and I have several of his emails where the I.P. is listed and such, so I am assuming that somebody could track down his true identity if they needed to. I personally can't track him down.
What can I do? Police? Civil suit? What? Please help.
