My Friend Feels Unsafe

Sort:

My friend can be a troll sometimes but yesterday he messaged me telling me that someone who he messed with "Knew who he is". He doesn't feel safe on this website knowing that people might be able to find him, what do I do?

if your friend is serious then they should close their account and do their best to erase any traces that it connects them. Also, assuming you guys are under the age of 18, you should tell your parents about the incident, better safe than sorry.

But what can we do about the person who said it? if they were able to do this to him; whats not saying they have done this or are doing this right now to others?

1. Stay off the internet.

2. Close the account.

3. Quit acting immature.

Problem solved.

I agree with Chess_player_lol, but if he/she said that and nothing else it looks like a bluff.

@Mf950547TheReBorn, maybe your friend is pretending to be someone else and the person who said "I know who u are" is cognizant of that and is letting your friend know that.  We have some people on this site who enjoy impersonating others - role play is what u kids call it, right?

He needs to change his i.d. and move out of the country!

hmm there's a chance they're probably joking but just in case you should probably close account, open new one and do your best not to reveal your old account

Now, the closest solutions are fleeing or using the less non-violent way.

He closed his account, however both him and I despise roleplay, we don't hate it; but we never like doing it.

Frustration is common here. It may lead to some arguments. But, threatening someone isn't acceptable

Escalated stuff here.

Everyone is crazy.

But I lost my sanity just by trying to understand anything.

The insanity starts when you start treating online as real life.

The only issue is that I'm beyond insanity too. It's more like really, really gone.
