Continued Harassment From Guest Accounts

Postby Tailslover13 » September 8th, 2019, 6:31 am

There's a certain comic that I enjoy being a part of and commenting on, but due to unfortunate past demons that I've had to deal with, many trolls and bullies of the past love to swarm many comments I post and harass, bully, and attack me. And, because they are cowardly and only use Guest accounts, there doesn't seem to be any way to stop this from happening. I ask the comic creator to remove the comments when they happen, which he does, but it's still really upsetting when this constantly happens, even if I don't retaliate or say anything in return.

Is there any way to stop harassment from Guest users on comics other than just asking the comic creator to remove the comments?

None that I know of, sorry to say. I mean, the internet is a free speech space, so all I know is the authors can delete comments from their comics. I hope you don't mind that I checked your last comment and there were two guest replies to it, which addressed the "past demons" you mention in your post, and I can see that you have a history with them. So as annoying as it is to have people address things from the past, which you're trying to move on from, there will always be people who'll do it.
My advice would be to calmly tell these people that yes, you made mistakes in the past, but you're moving past them and you want to put it behind you. And that if they don't believe you, then harassing you won't really make a difference.
If you talk things out with those people in an adult manner and show them you're doing nothing wrong now, they'll get bored and leave you alone. And for the ones, who don't drop the whole thing even after you've owned up to whatever it was that transpired and assured them that you're not that person anymore, I suggest you do your best to ignore them and remind yourself that they're probably doing it because they love drama, confrontations and feeling morally superior. In that case, you can totally disregard everything they've said as them jerking themselves off.
Of course, this is a very broad advice, because again, I don't know what's happened in the past.

Authors are able to stop guests from commenting on their comic entirely, so if they don't have many non-harassing guests, that could be a good solution.
If they're unwilling to do that but are willing to remove the comments, check with them if they're willing ban the guests by IP (this is a feature as well, and I think it's available as an option when removing comments). That may stop them for a while, without affecting other guest commenters.
