If someone tells you they don't want to hear from you, it certainly is. If you send a message and it gets ignored, that's a good clue that sending further messages would probably be harrassing. Why don't you just leave him alone?

He's trying to hit on JCboy. If he's being ignored, he should just suck it up and move on. If he continues to attempt to contact him, then he certainly is engaged in harrassment, your jackass political ideology notwithstanding.

Excessive pursuit is bad form, and it should not be allowed to work, but "harrassment" is a term that connotes the justification for sanctions, which are not justified for pursuit alone. The right to pursue what we want is a human right, pursuit can rarely be harrassment.

But maybe he hasn’t read my message yet, somebody else tole me to leave him alone and I just wanted to chat with him and find out how old he was, I wasn’t being mean or anything.

@TravisCQ,
He's already in a very loving relationship. Move on to greener pastures.

@TravisCQ,
I’m very flattered but I’m also very happy with the person I’m with. Plus if you really are the age you said I’m about 13 years older then you.

You be careful sending messages to strangers over the internet.

you underestimate yourself roger.

Hmmm, it seems by his courtesy that this fellow, Travis, does not necessarily mean to harass.

maybe he is looking for someone to be able to talk with. We don't know this.

He couldn't just guess that many of us like to talk and are not usually condemning, except some of us.

Oh okay, I thought you were older maybe 18 or 19 and I just needed someone to talk to. I don't have anyone to talk to.

Well, you can talk to all of us if you have something on your mind you'd like
to get out. Of course, some of us are more sympathetic than others, but the
majority is here to help and listen. Try us!

Well - I've been stalking Roger for years...I've done everything but turn up on his doorstep (only because he lives across the ditch), but...nuthin!
