Frequently Asked Questions
Is this FAQ page just an excuse to post more pictures and repeat Biz Carlton to influence search results?
Why didn't you contact law enforcement?
I finally did. But initially, I hoped the harassment would stop on its own. There would be long periods of quiet, and then it would start back up again, but with each period of quiet, I'd think that maybe this time she had given up on harassing us. I guess I was in denial. The triumph of hope over reality. I was also afraid to contact law enforcement because I was afraid that she would just ramp up the cyber bullying and comments. And, finally, I didn't want anyone arrested or even punished-- I just needed the harassment to end. I eventually sought the help of a lawyer and the police.
Do you still use social media?
I took down my Facebook page because the person harassing me began looking at my friends list and accusing some of my contacts of trolling her online. I made my Instagram profiles (both personal and professional) private and I also asked some of my friends to do the same, as they were receiving angry comments. I had to change my professional website so that visitors could no longer leave comments. I stopped using Twitter completely. I'm a freelance writer and social media consultant, so the constricting of my online presence made working difficult. To say the least.
I recently tried using social media again, but I started getting abusive, defamatory comments from "anonymous" accounts again. The police recently advised me to make all of my accounts private.
Do you think anyone will actually read this Biz Carlton website thing you've made?
I don't know. I'm in it for the Google search results, remember?
