I'm lost

So I have been being harassed by a person I went to high school with. We were not friends, but I was nice to them. I accepted their friend request on myspace and everything went fine till I got pregnant. Nasty and cruel messages started about how there is no baby, and I was a liar. I deleted the messages and then deleted them from my friends list. I made my myspace private. They requested me repeatedly over the next few months, then started on my mother, then my father, then my SIL. Something happened and I was no longer able to use my old account and I had to start a new one. I immediately made it private and requested a few people. They found that site and repeatedly requested me. They started following me on my twitter account. I blocked them. Then once again, they started following my mother and my SIL. We all made our profiles private and blocked them yet again. Now I have found out that they have been requesting some of my friends, who have no idea who this person is, and asking them why I hate them. They also have a blogger and I'm sure is reading this now. I don't want to make this private, because I have family that reads this from other states, and I want them to continue.
Last night I got a message from one of their friends asking why I hated them. This has been going on for almost 2 years now.At what point does this end? I mean good grief. Why can't we just be grown ups and move on with our lives? At the point when I first deleted this person, I had already had 2 miscarriages and was starting to miscarry the current pregnancy. Their comments were hateful and hurt me very deeply. I don't need that kind of person in my life.
I am completely worn out. I have no Idea what to do at this point. I mean this is definitely harassment, but what do you do about it on the Internet? I am so paranoid about what I put on any of my accounts. Even the moms site that I go on, I look for this person. I just know they will find me anywhere I go and harass me there too. I hate this. I'm sure my family and friends are getting sick of it too. I just don't know what to do anymore.

well, all you can do is do what you've done. I hope they get the hint and leaves us all alone. Its just getting old now. Don't let them get to you. It will only bother and its NOT worth it.

How absolutely horrible that someone would do that at all, but much less to YOU! You are such a sweet person and I cannot even begin to fathom what you must have been going through at the time and then to have these nasty messages coming in and now the stalking!

Katie's advice is good...DO NOT let this person get to you.

Know that you are loved and missed greatly!

If turning the other cheek and ignoring this person isn't working.....There are LEGAL remedies for these types of HARRASSMENTS. If the offense doesn't fit the Law Enforcement criteria for an actual warrant for the arrest of the person/persons doing the harrassing, you can always try the Civil side of things. And there are Restraining orders and Orders of Protection...In the Civil courts you don't have to prove anything "Beyond a shadow of doubt" you just have to prove your case to the standard that "any reasonable person" would believe that the events are occurring.
Email me some of the info on these persons...might as well have a record of some of the harrassment in place for future legal battles. Who knows...this person may wind up paying off all of your bills!
And I'm not a lawyer......I just play one on the internet. But I DO Know quite a lot about these types of dealings!
I'm signing off as anonymous but you and Rick will know who to email for sure! Because Eddie wants out of the box and the turkey neck is waiting. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
