This is a public forum, and given that you're posting using your new pen name here, it makes sense not to tie it to your photo, the videos that you've been posting, etc. This person sounds pretty tenacious, and if he knows that you're a self-published author, it wouldn't be hard to track you down here.
Great, don't let him win. The FBI has an Internet Crime Complaint Center, where you can file a complaint, this link is to their FAQ: https://www.ic3.gov/faq/default.aspxfranseen said:Correct. Moving forward, I will not be intimidated. I'll be vigilant in documenting any instances of harassment. My online stalker's rule over my channel and my writing has come to an end.
