thank you, snopes community. I owe you my life.

And a very special thank you to my ex, who has been vigilant and amazing. All my love to you and Sabrina.

I'm not surprised; you've just been through an emotional upheaval.
I'm glad we were able to support you/give advice.

Haven't lurked recently so I just got caught up on the situation. Some of your past posts about the dog bites worried me so I'm glad that you recognized the bad situation and got out. Reddit has several "JustNo" subreddits like "JustNoSO" that have great advice for what steps to take for security and documentation purposes. Leverage their experience. (If you want to post your experience, that's fine too, just don't share identifying details. I've heard stories of doxxing - tracking down someone in real life.)

Technically, doxxing is the act of putting someone's private information online in attempt to encourage other people to use it to hurt them, not tracking down someone based on information they provide.

Fair enough. I've seen some people use it to reference the fact that someone found and approached them in real life and others that were actually harassed. Some subreddit mods have had to spell out specifically for their members to not try to piece together the identity of a poster.

I'm not sure how much good that does. The more specific they get, the more information they are giving on how to do it.

I am starting that FB group that Tootsie suggested. Anyone want in? If your name is obvious I'll let you in but I will be fairly vigilant about members. https://www.facebook.com/groups/378408669631926

I am so thankful to this community.
