The idea of fighting back against harassment and threats can be daunting. But there is also a host of resources that you can use in that fight that most people don’t even know about.
Working to Halt Online Abuse has a good roundup of resources if you’re facing threats on your life, persistent sexual harassment, or other forms of “cyberstalking.” Having never used any of these services, I can’t recommend them personally. But they should give you a good sense of what’s out there and what else you might be able to find.
