My safety concerns – you will now have to register to comment

As you may know a group of people have abused my trust by posting defamatory and at times offensive and abusive and what I regard as threatening comments on my blog. They have hidden behind fake names – lying to my readers and me.

The comments by people (or perhaps one person) from the same ISP address who hide behind names like Wendy, Interested Bystander, Terrance Propp, Leonore Thompson and the like indicate a level of knowledge about my private and work life that has caused me and continues to cause me real concerns about my safety. 

Someone, possibly one of the aforementioned, has even sent a letter to my work making comments about my workplace which indicate a level of knowledge about where I work that is a concern. 

I have approached my workplace and my union about my concerns and what can be done and their advice has been to refer the matters to the police. 

In light of the constant stream of abuse and the fear for my safety that the level of knowledge and obsession of the abusers have about me generates, I have decided that from now on it will be necessary to register to comment on my blog.
