Anonymous said: Hi Nicole - it was me who posted that thing on gomi about your boyfriend's fb. Thank you for calling me out on it - It was really creepy and wrong and I sincerely apologize. My intentions may not have been good (curiosity got the best of me, still wrong) but I definitely would never stand outside your apartment or try and find you in person. I'm sorry that happened to you - it must have been terrifying. Just wanted to say I respect your privacy and am sorry.
A “troll”, in internet slang, is someone who deliberately upsets others by starting arguments or posting unnecessarily inflammatory messages on blogs, chatrooms, or forums.
While a person waiting outside my apartment is beyond terrifying, what really hurts is people who talk just to talk, especially when they are completely ignorant of the subject they’re trying to speak about. I get it, you get curious. We all do. And trust me, I know I am probably the easiest person to make fun of on the internet. But bringing my boyfriend into the conversation is a different story. You created a completely unnecessary conversation that involved someone who has never done anything to you.
Trust me, I appreciate you saying your sorry. But listen, words hold weight. And actions speak louder than words. I am a person and I have feelings, no matter how “cold” or “brief” I may come across. Imagine if you read something nasty about yourself that someone else wrote, someone who likely doesn’t even know you. It’s fucking gross and sad and really, more than anything, why is it even necessary?
Hey “n00dles” - next time you decide you want to post, maybe consider the other person on the other end may be reading it. And you know what, maybe find something to do that will better the world more than trolling.
