Long story short: I’ve had a stalker for over a decade, nothing legally actionable but a lonnnnng string of annoying phone calls, e-mails, forum posts and blog comments (which is why I’m here) that basically harangue me.
I’ve tried eliminating one source of the constant bombardment by putting the first two digits of her IP address in my comments blacklist box on WP, but that doesn’t seem to have done anything (I imagine she’s got a modem that gets re-assigned a new IP when you power down and back up again).
I’m wondering if there’s any way to block comments by some sort of geographical trackback: the IPs always track back to one company (Sympatico) in one city (Toronto), but the IP changes constantly. Yesterday it was 74.14.112.*; today it’s 76.64.48.*. Asterisks there for decency’s sake.
“Regular” spam-tagging doesn’t work either — the person in question just keeps creating new freemail accounts to badger me with.
Not looking for sympathy, legal advice, or anything else — I’m well-equipped psychologically, spiritually and legally to deal with this as much as possible — but it WOULD be helpful if I could configure WP to not accept any comments coming from an IP that tracks back to Sympatico modems or to Toronto, Ontario.
I don’t think anyone else in Toronto would be much bothered by this, but it would eliminate one source of white noise that I have to clean out and delete on a daily basis.
