Stalker alert

I debated whether or not I should post this, as I’m still hoping the problem will just go away, but decided in light of new information I’ve discovered, that I’d post it with a “friend’s only” lock.

The LJ user abdulsharif is stalking me. I have reported him to the LJ abuse folks, and am awaiting their response.

On Monday, 7/22/2002, this individual was apparently trolling through LJ and happened upon my journal. He then proceeded to post an insulting reply.

mouseferatu posted a reply, coming to my defense, as did I. We both banned him from our respective LJs, and I disabled anonymous posting.

He then went to mouseferatu‘s LJ and posted anonymous abuse there, but Mouse tracks IP addresses and was able to identify abdulsharif as the poster. (Mouse deleted the offending post, but you can read about the lengths that abdulsharif went to from Mouse’s comments on my LJ.)

Since then, abdulsharif has identified what LJ communities I’m a member of from either my journal or my user info. He surfed the community until he found a comment that I had responded to. It wasn’t even a main thread so it would seem that he was hunting for something from me. He then proceeded to post more abuse, including vague accusations of plagiarism. (Of what, I have no idea.) I have contacted yakdog, the moderator of the community and he has since deleted the offending post.

abdulsharif also got my homepage URL from my user info and posted more abuse on my guestbook.

Please keep in mind that until this week, I didn’t even know this guy existed.

As soon as the LJ abuse folks have given me the all clear, I’m deleting the nastygrams he’s posted on my LJ and my website’s guestbook.

I discovered today that I am not the only person whom abdulsharif has stalked and harrassed on LJ. xxsuigenerisxx posted a heartfelt thank you to her LJ friends on her journal, and abdulsharif accused her of plagairising it, which of course, is completely ridiculous. She thanked her friends, with her words, from her experience with them. He then tracked her LJ friends and went to delphizyx and posted more defammatory, libelous comments about xxsuigenerisxx there.

This person is a stalker. He’s displaying classic obsessive behavior. He’s also an asshole. May his testicles become leprous and his penis fall off.

Thanks for listening, y’all.

      Re: Sorry about that…

      Thanks :). I’m still hoping he’ll just go away. I’d say “still hoping he goes away and bothers someone else” but I really wouldn’t wish his attentions on anyone.

    Stalker killer for hire, at your service. Hell, I’ll do it for free since it’s you. 🙂

    In all seriousness, that is upsetting yet it is unfortunately a by-product of this relatively new fangled thing we call the internet. Some people are creeps, plain and simple and should be beaten, ahem….. treated as such. *hugz*

    • Eugie Foster says:

      *hugz* back.

      Thanks. I love having friends with a surfeit of testosterone. 🙂

      I’m not freaked about it, just annoyed and angered. I know it’s a side effect of being in a publicish forum. Quite frankly, there’s just a lot of assholes out there. But I still wish leprosy upon his privies.

  3. This is really messed up of this dude

    I mean I took a look at his journal and photo gallery and he does not need to be doing this shit. You are too good of a person for his taste and you know it.
    You will make it as a writer. I still have yet to read your stories. But I believe that you will make it.

    Hope you have a good day now.

      Thanks, Brown-hedgie. 🙂

      I’m not taking his comments to heart or anything, no fear. I’m just rather pissed at being stalked.

  4. prosewitch says:


    Ugh, you have every right to be pissed off. That guy has way too much time on his hands if he’s photoshopping huge pictures of girls in thongs so they’ll say his name on them. Now I feel dirty because he has “lord of the rings” listed as an interest.

    Of course, I didn’t even need the IP to figure out who it was, since the moron went through all the trouble of Photoshopping/HTMLing/Whatever-he-did-ing his reply so that it looked like it came from him, instead of actually being anonymous. :-/

    Really wish I hadn’t deleted it now, especially since you say that you’re not the only person he’s done this to. Have you spoken to her about it, tried to pool your evidence so we can get this loser voted off the island?

    (Argh! Survivor reference! And I hate, loathe, despise, and refuse to watch that show! This guy must go!!!) 😉

    Just further proves that the world is full of dumbnutts with too much time on their hands. May his fingernails ever grow inward and his keyboard become gummed up with dried soda pop!

  7. mouseferatu says:


    You want evidence? Check out this crap:

    Scroll down, and you’ll find a post that appears to be from me. It’s not. I didn’t write it, I didn’t send it. The fact that it’s in his journal does not in any way excuse the fact that he’s falsifying responses from me.

    I will be forwarding this to the LJ staff, but I thought you’d like to know. You might even want to forward it yourself, just in case there’s any doubt that it pertains to the same case.

  8. chunger says:

    I’m really sorry to see this happen, especially to friends. For you to be so courageous to place your words and thoughts to the open eyes of the world, and to watch those who would take such generosity and pervert it for their own amusement, sickens me.

    It also saddens me to see there are people out there who have so little joy in their lives, that they can only find it by taking it away from others.

  9. Hey there.
    In my extreme boredom, I’ve managed to track Abdellah Cherkaoui (AKA AbdulSharif) to who he really is…He never went to Harvard, and in fact, went to the University of Washington, as is evidenced in these links:

    Got Nair?

    Nor is he a writer. Rather an OCEANOGRAPHER. Not that this is a bad profession, by any means.

    Grad Student, in fact. In 1998, apparently. Leading me to understand that he is NOT a ‘mere 4 years older’ than I am. we have it. I didn’t manage to find his name ANYWHERE associated with Harvard, or any sort of writing/journalism reviews/teams. This made me feel a little better. Hopefully it did you, too.

    • Oops. Sorry. I forgot to close my tag.

      • mslilly says:

        Girl, you are fabulous.

        • *Blush*

          I noticed this in your journal. I was reading through following a link from Eugie in an email, I believe.
          However, I assure you that I didn’t post anonymously. I just wanted you to know that.
          I’m not sure if that person is also a friend of Eugie’s and found this, or what.

          It just amuses me that isn’t at all who he says he is, and yet acts like God’s gift to well..everyone.

          Oh..and to further prove his psychosis please view this link. It’s a comment he left to my friend, regarding the drama that he brought to HER journal. He made a ‘copy’ of the little flame war she and I had, in .pdf format. Please note that the top of the journal says “hello, euphuist”. So, not only do we have , we also have . Now, I went to ‘s journal and posted “Hello, Abdul”. With not so much as a comment/acknowledgement, I was banned.
          I’ve also noticed that
          has posted something regarding “Not having double identities”. Well, how would he even know we thought that, if he didn’t read the comments in ‘s journal?

          I guess, in the end, what I’m trying to say, is watch out for him. I don’t trust him, or his antics. It’s not that people don’t lie on LJ, it’s the lengths he goes to to try to make others look bad. Well, his game is up, with me.

          Sorry so long! Eek!

          • mslilly says:

            Re: *Blush*

            No problem. I had attempted to leave a comment in your journal another time, but was unable 🙁

            Anyway, glad I’ve made contact again.

          • Re: *Blush*

            Aw, I’m sorry.
            I’d be more than happy to add you to my friends list, should you desire 🙂

          • mslilly says:

            Re: *Blush*

            I certainly so desire, and I’ll do the same!

          • mslilly says:

            Re: *Blush*

            I don’t know whether my first response went through; it was roughly this:

            Certainly I do so desire said addition. I’ll do the same.

          • Eugie Foster says:

            Re: *Blush*

            abdulsharif/euphuist or whoever he wants to pose as is a sad, pathetic little man.

            As a peremptory action, I’ve banned euphuist from posting to my journal. If anyone finds out any other identities of the little prick, it’d be great if you could let me know so I can ban them to.

            Sheesh. What an utter and complete loser he is.
