Abusive individuals do not stop when asked or blocked. They continue to pursue and cause deeper harm. What people say and do online is converging with our real-world experiences. As we build online communities, harassment can interfere with the space we need for our in-person careers and hobbies.
Cyberstalking is still a difficult thing to identify, define, and prosecute. Less than 40% of stalking victims found that police took action against a perpetrator when they reported the crime, and the most common action by the police was to take a report of the incident. Reports give no additional protection to the victim and have no impact on the perpetrator.
