Cyberstalking refers to the use of the Internet, e-mail, or other telecommunication technologies to harass or stalk another person. It is not the mere annoyance of unsolicited e-mail. It is methodical, deliberate, and persistent. The communications, whether from someone known or unknown, do not stop even after the recipient has asked the sender to cease all contacts, and are often filled with inappropriate, and sometimes disturbing, content.And sometimes, the victim is merely watched... Cyberstalking is an extension of the physical form of stalking. It is estimated that there may potentially be tens or even hundreds of thousands of cyberstalking victims in the United States. A cyberstalker only needs access to the internet. Due to the enormous amount of personal information available through the Internet, a cyberstalker can easily locate private information about a potential victim with a few key strokes.

Everyone who receives e-mail or uses the Internet is susceptible to cyberstalking...Tune in as we discuss this rousing topic! 2 PM Mountain Standard Time (3 PM Central, 4 PM Eastern, 1 PM Pacific) Tuesday February 19th, 2013.
