Enough Is Enough


Never a dull moment in my life. 

This comment has the same IP address as my last nasty, anonymous, 'Karen Rogers' commenter.... so she has changed her fake blogger ID. Surprise. Surprise. I tracked the IP address to the same geographical location as all my other nasty, fake ID, blog stalker comments. It is the same person who has left vile comments about me and my family all over blogsville. Vile things... about my children, my family. She has not left me alone... for a minute.... over the past 8 months. I cannot do anything online, without her responding. 

This is true bullying.

Her tweet stream and her comments on other people's blogs are now stating that she is being stalked, she is being bullied. She is desperate to turn this all around to look like I am the perpetrator!!! She even tried to trap one of my supportive blog friends into revealing her real/non blog stalker name so she could sue my friend for defamation.

This comment appeared last night after I had tweeted that I had found out that my blog stalker had gone to great lengths to destroy an innocent person's online reputation.... just to hurt me. Destroy someone she doesn't even know!!!!.... to hurt me!!!! She set it all up to look like I had created fake online accounts in this innocent person's name .... to create animosity and retaliation between this innocent person and me. This stalker, who is trying to destroy my online reputation, is desperate and crazy!!!! The lengths she is going to are quite amazing. 

In response to your comment Slleitch, I will be engaging an energetic, smart, young architect to help me design something 'that fits in with its surrounds'. It will be far from a Mc Mansion as I only have 800sqm to work with and I have the Council Character Code rules to follow. The Council will not approve it unless it fits in with the character code, just like my last place. It will not have a complex roofline. It will not be pretentious. It will not be generic, mass produced, lacking in distinguishing characteristics.... nor will it be in variance with the traditional local architecture. It will be beautiful and something that I and the neighbours will love.... just like the last place. 

Everything I do online riles you. I see your tweets when I comment on twitter. You are very predictable. I mention I'm going for a run, you say runners have mean faces. I mention I am going to Sydney for a sponsored event, you scream about advertisers choosing the wrong blogs to support. I make a comment on a Dietitan's tweet, you scream that I think I know everything, even though I trained as I Dietitian so, so, so long ago. Why? Everyone is watching, wondering why you never leave me alone, why you are so venomous. Why do you bother?  What are you trying to achieve? 

Your venom is not going to stop me doing anything here. I am still going to blog, tweet and build my house... in the way I want to. I will continue to be happy, love my life, my family, my circumstances. Nothing you continue to do or say will change anything in my life. You think you do, but you have nothing on me. Just because I did not share my marriage details on this blog, does not make me a 'fake' ....as you scream everywhere. This blog could not be more true to who I am. 

I know I am feeding your sick psycho needs by blogging about this. I know.
So this will be the last time I mention you. Your show is over. I need to continue mine.

Move along Slleitch/Karen Rogers/blog stalker. Go to your husband and children and focus on them. 
You are NOT welcome here.

  2. Obviously jealousy is a horrible curse. I am wondering that given you have their IP address could they possibly be 'charged' with anything such as harassment?
    People forget that everything is traceable including where they have logged in from. Best of luck AM xx Deb

  3. Well said A-M. Go, be happy and live well. So many of us love following your blog and then there are the others......

  4. I do wonder if there isn't a way to stop her through Google or other means. Never used Twitter, but can you block people from seeing your tweets. I'd be tempted to find an IP specialist and find out who she really is.

    I've said before, I like that you don;t dish the goods on here. Privacy=respect. Carry on AM as you are.

  5. Oh my goodness. Some people....

    When my daughter was very sick in her first year of her life I had someone comment that I was making it all up to get attention....if only.

    Hold your head high, you are obviously envied.

    Evil blog commenter/s...time to move on.

    ReplyDelete
  6. AM - I would take this another step actually. If you have their ip addy, it's easy to find out who their Internet provider is via ip tracer (you have probably already done that!) and I would make a formal complaint to Optus/Bigpond or whichever one it is. Even if nothing comes of it now, it starts a paper trail.....
    And for now live well, it's the best revenge ;)

    ReplyDelete
  7. How I feel for you! This person has to move on...if only she realised that there's nothing to gain from doing this. I hope she takes your advice and focuses on something far more important than someone else's blog.xx

  8. Oh my goodness how awful for you! Great dignified response A-M xx

    ReplyDelete
  9. I seriously don't know how she (or could it be a he) keeps up with all the fake accounts? I'd be forgetting passwords, user names, login details, etc if I had so many fake id's floating around. Maybe you can hope that she eventually trips herself up & reveals her real name?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Wow! Some people truly have nothing better to do. You go and build YOUR house the way YOU want A-M and enjoy it with your two boys. I will be reading along from the other side of the world, and with me many more people who love what you do with your blog. Continue to smile!

  12. Obviously someone has too much time on her hands and not enough "life" and love to keep her occupied.

    ReplyDelete
  13. You are all class A-M. As a former conservation historian I know you will build a great home totally in keeping with the character of the place. Does this person even live in Brisbane? She obviously has no idea on local architecture - so very different to the rest of Australia.
    Enjoy the day!

  15. Two things.
    #1 Ignore her.
    #2 Try to report her to "someone".

    Keep believing that she is "more to be pitied than censured" but it is tough to have such negativity in your life.
    We are with you A-M!!

  16. I'm sorry this is happening to you. It's very intimidating and scary and I hope it stops soon. I really do. Look after yourself and your lovely family. I'm looking forward to seeing the house planning process - I know it will be fabulous! Annie x.

    ReplyDelete
  17. A-M the woman sounds like a complete twit with a strong case of envy. 'Noosa Beach House' is correct in what she says. Also remember that slander and libel are crimes and police action can be taken if you wish. We may take the Cap Cod houses from the US but we do not have their free speech laws.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yep ignoring her is the best way to go, bully's love a reaction. I for one am looking forward to the house you build, I am sure it will be both stylish & beautiful just like your last one.

    ReplyDelete
  19. what a nutter!!! she seems totally unhinged and has far too much time on her hands.

    good on you darl, stand up to this nonsense. My first instinct was to follow the ip path and really put a stop to this once and for all, but that wont stop someone as unhinged as this person, it would just be part of the game to keep trying to get at you.

    hard as it may be, the ignore path is usually the best. dont give them the satisfaction and they will soon leave you alone. I know from experience. And it demostrates just how strong you are.

  20. How terrible A-M....what a sad life she must have to carry so much venom...what a waste. Loving everything you do. X

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi A-M, gosh this made me feel a little sad. I just wanted to offer my support and say that your blog brings a little sunshine into my mornings. You are so generous with what you share and it is truly awful that you have to suffer bullying because of it. It does not make sense...which probably goes to prove that this person is not of a sound mind. (Well I hope that is their excuse) I just don't get nastiness :(

    ReplyDelete
  22. Dear A-M

    I feel for you. What this person is doing is just so mean and if she is a Mother, what sort of parenting example is this setting???

    I have had my fair slew of spiteful anaon hate comments and they really are sickening - just ignore this person and please do not stop blogging.

    Stay strong x

    ReplyDelete
  23. A-M, I was sent an email last night about 15 things you should give up to be happy. I am pleased that I am working hard at many of the things on the list everyday and it is really liberating. One that this 'stalker' should perhaps take note of is "Give up the luxury of criticism. Give up your need to criticize things, events or people that are different than you. We are all different, yet we are all the same. We all want to be happy, we all want to love and be loved and we all want to be understood." I love your blog A-M and I can't wait to see you tranform your block into the most beautiful home for you and your boys.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh this just makes me cry and vomit at the same time. This woman is so horrid, and yet hides behind such a high and mighty facade. Ick. Go forth and be awesome, A-M, and don't let her see the pain that her rubbish causes. M xx

    ReplyDelete
  25. Defamation is almost impossible to prove! No worries about that. Say whatever you want about your own experiences. My guess, she will lay low for a while. She is obviously a sad person...let's pity her lack of self worth.

  28. Disturbing behavior to say the least. I hate that you are a target.

    I can't wait to see your next creation - I would love to live in a home you design. You have such a gift for all things beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hi A-M first time posting but follow your posts regulary, couldnt let this one slip though.
    Facebook has a huge troll community, i have experienced this before, with my own business, and yes your reply will feed their need to get under our skin in order to have an emotional response. Why these people feel the need to behave this way, well one can only assume, that these people are damaged goods, not worthy of time from people in their real life because of the way they behave(i mean what person who behaves like this would have anyone around them, how disappointed would you be if you found out this person was in your friendship circle?), so they look to create hurt in an online unreal world
    But the fact of the matter is, this is your life, your choice, you choose how you live it, how your happy , how you treat people, go build your Mcmansion and revel in it when your christening your toilet, think of Karen Rogers, because at the end of the day, when the trend of trolling has past, you won’t be living with regret in your heart only love and light, you will grow old with 2 loving sons by your side, and a sense of accomplishment, knowing you went for it, and didn’t hurt anyone along the way, which is something that cant be said for Karen Rogers, who hides behind mindless posts about topics that have nothing to do with them and their REAL life, cause logically, if there is something online you don’t like, or don’t agree on, heres a tip close the page.

    ReplyDelete
  30. No. No. No. That's what I thought as I read each word of your post. What that person is putting you through is just unreal. I am so sorry to hear of your enduring this utter garbage. At this point, if I were you, I'd be battling myself between legal action & letting it go - to dissipate into her wicked ether. I'm sending you my continuing best wishes & positive support from the opposite side of the globe - which good wishes the troll can never achieve.

  31. Oh my goodness! I have obviously been living under a rock. I can't believe that there are people out there who would be so nasty. What on earth is so wrong and sad in their lives that they have to spend time writing such drivel. I love reading your blog and look forward to it appearing in my inbox each day. Keep your head up and refuse to be intimidated by low lifes like her (and any others).

    ReplyDelete
  32. OMG! Doesn't she ever give up. What's wrong with that person? Obviously has not got a life (hanging at the computer creating all these accounts and fake id's would take some time).
    I agree with some of the other ladies that these incidents should be reported to someone/somewhere just for the record.
    Now go on and build your lovely house, I can't wait to see it come together.
    All the best!
    Anette :-)

  33. This bully needs to go back to the rock they crawled out from under and leave people to run their own race. I agree A-M that you should waste no further of your precious time on them (though I know how hard it is to sit back idly while someone hurts you and yours). Also, shame on them for bringing your family into it. I am a firm believer in Karma (having seen it in action many times) and would not want to be standing near this low-life in a thunderstorm...

    ReplyDelete
  34. I just wrote this to your friend whom you mention at the end of your post.

    I know of one person who had this sort of comment. It was totally shocking to me. Brooke Giannetti of "Velvet and Linen". She was scared for her family.

    I don't know if Brooke used it , or not, but there seems to be a company who stops this sort of thing , somehow!
    I have no ties to it; and blessedly, have not had to use it......but you might try. This is terrorism.

    Reputation.com. Just look into it. I am so shocked.

    However, it is scary. And what pathetic people would do such a thing.

    I love your blog. I am so sorry this is happening!

  35. I am not one to comment on blogs, even though I do follow yours daily with my morning coffee.
    This person obviously has no joy in her own life, she obviously leads a sad and sorry existence, and she is obviously very jealous of you, your beautiful children and your impeccable taste.
    Rise above and don't let her pathetic words bring you down.
    I am dying to follow your new house build journey, in whatever style you choose.

  36. Hi AM, I love Hamptons Style and we are obviously not alone, look at the number of followers to your blog...it is completely appropriate to Australian style homes, not just in Brisbane. I am renovating my Edwardian weatherboard home in Surrey Hills, Melbourne and look to you as my main inspiration! I will be in touch soon to order some of your light fittings. Love your work, Wendy

  37. I agree with some of the other commentors - I think you can get blogger to make her cease and desist. I hate bullies. That is just horrid. Best wishes to you and hopefully evil will find a large dark hole and leave you alone!!

  41. A-M jealous people feel the need to betray and hurt others. You are doing a great job and it is your honesty and the person you are that this person does not like. Keep doing what you do and keep dreaming. xx

  42. Hi A-M - first time comment today, but I have followed your blog for ages. I really can't wait for your new house and think Hampton's style has a lot of the old gabled Queenslander in it - verandahs, gables etc. I would never have called this style bogan as there is not a rendered brick or overdone entrance about it. Go for it, I for one will be following this house and cheering you on (and copying everything you do, as always from up in North Qld)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I wonder if this "person" thinks that, by writing this, you'll change your style and house plans? Like I've said before: sad, sad, sad. And what made me laugh even more at this venom was the bad grammar and incorrect punctuation! Oh...and the bogan comment!  It's hard not to be nasty right back but I'm moving on too.

    I can't wait to see what delicious plans you cook up and also to pick up many tips and lots of advice as you progress with your journey for my own renovations. I'm relying on you!!!! Keep blogging, lovely lady; you have so much support. xx

    ReplyDelete
  44. A-M. Please focus on the 100's and 1000's of blog followers who love reading your blog every day and look forward to hearing all about your new building venture. Not one sad individual. Take care.

  45. You know, the beauty of the internet, is that everything is available, but also able to be avoided if you choose. That's how you know she is crazy.... she could just not read and follow your stuff if it annoys her so much. No one is forcing her to consume your blog or tweets.

    Take comfort in the fact that we all love your humour and stories and follow your developments with a smile. I hope this is resolved soon for you, and you can keep up your positive outlook on life through it all, A-M.

    hmmmmmm wonder what her bloggy is? lololol

  47. Dear AM clearly this person has significant pychopathology but its not a good enough excuse IMO.

    Take heart A-M from all the sincere and caring comments from decent human beings who think you are a beautiful and very talented person with such lovely decorating and lifestyle ideas, that we love to follow you each day. Most of us are watching with fascination to see the magnificent home you will design this time, and we love to share in the special moments with your boys.

Half of me feels really angry but the other half just wants to laugh a little bit because it's just so,so ...searching for words....
    unbelievably unbelievable! A-M (or anyone else who has to deal with this), just roll eyes, shake head, ignore and delete. xx

  57. This is shocking! She is a true bully; how must she have been at highschool?

    Just know that all of the other people who visit your blog adore you and your ideas, and our positive vibes are intended to overwhelmingly cancel out any of her pathetic little, quivering negative vibes. Hear us roar! xx

    More power to you A-M, unlike your bully. You have a real blog, about real life, with real photos, real stories, and as the countless comments on this post alone reveal, real support.
    Onwards and upwards, I look forward to following your journey of your next building project, whether it's a McMansion or not, I don't care, I just love what you produce, beautiful, quality houses that many, many people love and admire! Just like you.

  62. AM I'm shocked to read your story and the story of the lovely lady that you linked to. I can't understand how or why people can be so horrible, hidden behind their computers. I work with children who are bullied and fortunately I haven't yet encountered cyber bullying (most of my students are in primary school), however, I know that it's something that will come up. Hearing your experience at least gives me some insight about the kinds of things that can happen. I did wonder though if you could go to the Police. If this person is pretending to be you, perhaps they could be pursued on identity theft?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Why do people do such nasty things to others?
    This bully is pathetic if they feel they need to do something so low.
    I'm blown away to think someone could be so mean.

  64. Two words .... oxygen thief!


    Ok - I am a words girl so can't stop at just two. She is one v unhappy camper isn't she? Twisted as willow. The energy she puts into being a bully is plain sad - not a greta role model for her kids. Here's hoping she digs a hole like the wombat who took up residence here this weekend - and got alive in it - and takes some time to have a good hard look at herself. She needs help. Of the professional kind. Plain and simple.

  65. What a nut job!

    What you choose to share on your blog is up to you and is your business only. We know that her and her rantings are crazy.

    I cannot for the life of me understand what motivates these people that feed on this sort of negativity, they are definitely bottom dwellers in the ocean of life :)
    I wish I could be one of those compassionate people that understands that these misery makers need help, that their mother didn't love them or whatever their excuse is for behaving so badly ...but I am not! I have zero tolerance for cowardly people who spread their poison to others in a twisted attempt to feel better about themselves.
    Whatever life throws at you, you deal with it and so many people have truimphed over incredible hardships to become decent , even remarkable people.
    I do believe in karma though...and karma can be a bitch too...

  69. Oh A-M,
    I am shocked! This is truly something that I didn't even think could exist on such a beautiful blog.
    I love reading your posts and am really looking forward to your new project. Please (!) don't stop blogging! Getting your email each day is exciting to see what little treat you have found for our eyes! I love your style, and use it for inspiration, when thinking up ways to change my house around :)

    I know it was mentioned earlier, and I agree, this "person" needs professional help, yet the biggest problem with this is that they may not even be aware that they have a problem. Lack of insight with mental illness is a terribly sad thing and can be horribly destructive.

    Keep your chin up!

  71. Well that's just crazy. A-M I just love your blog.
    I'm a 27yo Brissie girl now in Darwin, former clarinet/oboe/sax player, working as an interior designer with a 5yo son.
    I love to be reminded of home when I am reading your blog and find you truly inspiring in the way you deal with daily life, raise your boys, not to mention the beautiful images you post and you've encouraged me to get my instruments out and PLAY THEM! I've even contacted the local orchestra, because of you!

    For the most part blogging is such a positive, friendly and supportive community and it's sad you have written today's post. Like others have suggested, I highly doubt your bully will stop any time soon but gosh you are a brilliant woman, chin up and keep at it!

    ReplyDelete
  72. A-M, it's very obvious what this troll's problem is: she wants to be YOU!
    Rot in hell troll, you will never be a patch on A-M, not in this or your next lifetime! She has more class and integrity than you could ever hope to possess in your little finger.
    Who's the BOGAN?!!!!!!

  73. AM, I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy reading your blogs and the designs you show. Apart from being shocked I did have a giggle at the words she uses, the house designs you showcase are gorgeous, we are lucky we can be diverse in Australia with design. Keep doing what you do please, it's almost like you are exact opposite of all she said! I hope one day you will laugh at how ridiculus she sounds, I'd call her 'bogan' and 'common'. She's just jealous, no other reason she would say horrid things, feel proud of all you achieve x

  74. Well said to all of the above!! Shame on Karen Rogers, shame, shame, shame!! You are loved A-M, you are truly loved. Karen Rogers, clearly isn't!! I know who I'd rather be! Stay strong, stay proud, and stay true to you, because you are awesome!! xx

I'm glad you have the strength to recognize this and not let their actions stop you from being who you are. Much love Katherine xxxxx

  78. Im sorry you are going through this AM - Bullying, no matter what your age is unacceptable but this might be a good idea to practice what we all preach. Stick and Stones and all that.

    Words can't hurt you unless you let them and obviously if she took the time to actually create different accounts she definately feels some sort of jealousy towards you. Be the bigger person we all know you are and ignore it.

  79. I have to echo the sentiments of the previous commenters and congratulate you on the grace and strength you've shown in the face of this horrible bullying. You are a fabulous example to the rest of us.

    Your bully is a sad little person with a big personality disorder/mental illness unfortunatly.
    What an unhappy life they must have!

  80. A-M, I've been following your blog for a few years now and love, love, love it. Looks like this post has got all the previously non-commenters off their butts (& onto their keyboards) - like me. Which shows just how many supporters you have and how much pleasure you are bringing to so many people with your blog. It's obviously a case of jealousy - but it's just so WRONG. Take care of yourself, and be strong.

  81. Good morning, A-M ( It is morning here in the States). This is my first time posting, but I have been reading your lovely blog for a long time. I just wanted to let you know that there are many of us, friends you know and ones you don't, who are rooting for you. Not just in the case of your bully, but in general. You and your darling family bring smiles to our faces everyday, and we are genuinely rooting for your happiness in everything you do. Very best wishes for the new house and all of your endeavors!

  82. A-M,
    All I can say is,turn the other cheek.
    They need to get there own life, as they seem so very happy to try and be part of yours in what ever way they can.
    Very, very, very, sad people.
    Blogs to me are like reading a book or watching TV. If you don't like it put down or turn it off you are not being forced to do it.
    Very shallow lives.
    Your followers are your true voice.
    Warm wishes,
    Daryl

  83. This person's behaviour sounds a little unhinged. What seems obvious, just from what you've described, is that they're consumed with jealousy. If it was me, for my own peace of mind I'd get something on file at Blogger (maybe also with the police) to the effect that you have a stalker. The whole attempt at defamation of character scenario certainly warrants reporting. After that? I couldn't agree more with what has already been said: ignore them. It's hard to exist in a vacuum.

  84. AM,is there any chance you can bring this to the police? I'm not at all versed in Australian law but given all the work the government has done of cyber security, I would hope they also done work on online harassment. I think you should reach out to the police - this person is now harassing others as part of their harassment of you. Stay strong! Ignore the nutter!!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I too think you should seek advice as to who you should report this person to. Unhinged is definitely the word for her. To be delving and spreading such vile comments sounds anything but normal to me. Once I would have said to ignore her, but now I think you and other's she's harrassing should take it a step further and have the police find her and warn her against cyber bullying.

  86. A-M, I finally saw the ruse in its entirety on Twitter this weekend with your stalker. I had to quietly walk away. The guise of friendship with this person is over. You stood up and said your piece so continued happiness and success to your future! Standing with you always....

  88. Seriously I'm with you A-M all the way, some of the modern houses built here in Brisbane are ugly and already out of date, they lack style and longevity. They are cheaper to build and may be eco friendly, until we knock them down and the materials all go to the dump! classic design is timeless and you more than ever proved that i.e you last sale of your home! follow your passion and your dreams you will do a great job xx

    p.s thank you for my blog help xx

  89. Hmm, I adore you. Your creativity, love for your kids, how you try so hard.

    Sorry you're so far from Atlanta, GA. Wish you were around the corner.

    Thanks for posting what you did, it took courage.

  91. Dear A-M,
    ordinarily I would say "ignore" - but enough is enough. This is damaging, upsetting, defamatory and hurtful.
    It is criminal.
    Cyber crime (bullying, stalking) is a serious criminal offence. If you have her IP address - she (I am assuming they are a "she") can be handed over to the Police or authorities. At the very least blocked from having access to Blogger.
    Stay strong and stay being your beautiful, brave, joyous self.
    I love what you do. Even if I didn't, it is your right!
    It has all been said by all of your many, many followers.
    You are such an inspiration.
    Take care,
    x

  92. Outrageous behaviour - and so sad that she has nothing better to do in her pathetic life than harass you. Feel free to let us know if it helps or keep quiet if that is a better strategy. Onward and upward is a great motto!

  93. OMG how horrid the bully must be sooo jeleous if only they put all that energy into good, they obviously havent got a brain!!!!

  94. dearie me ... I dream of the good ole days when it was all done with hang up phone calls ... I got the police involved and they paid the nutter a visit - I then rang her folks and gave them the details of her actions ... I'm all for a horse's head in her bed ...

    Strength to you matey le xox

  95. yeah I'd go to the police, seriously, that one has a screw loose. Besides, how do you know her/his antics aren't going to escalate and become physical. I'd def go and report her to the Police dep that deals with cyber bullying, they take it very seriously now. Too many suicides. I'm sure if she hassles you like that, she does it to heaps of others too. Besides, you know her twitter - enlighten us all pleeeeeseese :)))

    ReplyDelete
  96. It seems to me she is sick in the head. Anyone who seeks to harm others, either emotionally or physically, is a sick person who needs help. Who the heck has the time to set up fake blogs just to insult and stalk another? Only someone who needs mental help would do such a thing. Sorry A-M that she is putting you thru this. I'm glad you are calling her out, but after this she's not worth the mention. We should all just ignore her. Keep on blogging and inspiring us A-M, we love you!

  97. This person is just really not worth thinking or worrying about what a sad life they must lead.

  98. OMG A-M I am at a loss to understand how this persons mind must be working.
    I LOVE your blog , your vision & cannot wait to join you on your journey building your new house...GO GIRL..Cate x

  99. What she is doing is illegal A-M, as you probably know. She needs to be blocked and the police have probably heard of her, you are not her first victim I expect. Carry on as usual, we love to read your blog. ps. I adore my Hampton lights I purchased from you!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Could this be someone who knows you in real life? It's sad that they are so unhappy (mentally ill?) with their own life that they gain pleasure from destroying others. They need medical help.

    Personally, I'd take all your evidence to the Police and prosecute.

  101. A-M, I LOVE YOUR BLOG, WE LOVE YOUR BLOG!
    I visit your blog and like what I see and read. To me you seems like a wonderful person, and by telling from all the comments, I´m not the only one to think that! ;-)
    So don't take any notice from this person... I guess she not well! Be strong, be happy! :-)

    Ps. I follow you on FB! :-) Thumbs up! ;-)

  102. OMG - You have got to be insane to be such a nasty person like this so called Karen Rogers. Why on earth is she/he even treating such a beautiful person like you are A-M in this way. Oh yeah, because this person is sooooooo envious of you and cannot be even a 10th of the person that you are. You are successful, have a gorgeous soul and personality, have 2 beautiful boys and a family that love and support you. An amazing blog that 1000s read everyday for the genuine posts that you write. This 'person' needs to learn a lesson and karma will catch up them one day, I truly believe that. With so many followers and people looking out for you, Karen Rogers should give up once an for all.

    I totally agree with 'Noosa Beach House' in suggesting to put in a formal complaint with her provider. The more authority figures that know this is happening to you, the quicker this person can be put in their rightful place. I wish you didn't have to have such a horrid person stalking you, no-one ever should.

    Best wishes and like everyone else 'normal' we are behind you 10,000%

  104. Dear A-M, you are so wonderful, creative, energetic, loving, inspiring, kind, caring, beautiful inside and outside! There are lots of people who admire you but unfortunately the world has those other kind too. This person is so so so jealous of you that the only thing he/she can do is to be hurtful to you. Just ignore the jerk and live your beautiful life. We love you so much!

  105. Anyone know a good Psychiatrist? This person really needs therapy!!! Well done A-M! Can't wait to see the new home you come up with. You're very talented!

  106. Dear A-M, I have just read each and every one of comments left by your followers about this post. You have overwhelming support and admiration from all, and I too am one of those that think your blog is wonderful.

    Hopefully the knowledge that you have tracked the IP address of your bully will deter her forever.

    Jealousy is a curse.
    Success is yours to enjoy!

  107. All I can say is what a sad, lonely person your cyber bully must be. I hope that it does not deter you from your blogging! Keep up the good work! xx

  108. Do these people not have a life? Honestly, what do they do with their time?
    A girlfriend (who is an editor of a large mag) and I were only talking about this kind of crap yesterday (whilst we have both been lucky to avoid it), but I think she mentioned a blog called lovely living (?) where they had put up special terms of commenting because of the trolls around.

  109. AM, I have had an online stalker and it was a horrible horrible time. I was left shaking, furious and at the same time devastatingly upset by her. She too threatened legal action for no apparent reason than attention. She calls me ladyfelon. Because I am Australian, and as the world knows we are born of convicts and felons. How ridiculous. I worried she would use a private detective to find me for her legal threats to be effective. The only way forward was to block her on twitter, to refuse to rise to her bile, and to turn my back on her comments. I also posted a screenshot of her IP address and the amount of time she spent harassing me. It was hard and I know she is a sick sick woman with serious mental health issues. But we can say no to these bullies, that you have done so is a credit to your strength though I know personally how it will have shaken you. In time she will move on, or be consumed by her bitterness. My heart goes out to you xx
