" Cyberstalking is a relatively new phenomenon. With the decreasing expense and thereby increased availability of computers and online services, more individuals are purchasing computers and "logging onto" the Internet, making another form of communication vulnerable to abuse by stalkers.
Cyberstalkers target their victims through chat rooms, message boards, discussion forums, and e-mail. Cyberstalking takes many forms such as: threatening or obscene e-mail; spamming (in which a stalker sends a victim a multitude of junk e-mail); live chat harassment or flaming (online verbal abuse); leaving improper messages on message boards or in guest books; sending electronic viruses; sending unsolicited e-mail; tracing another person's computer and Internet activity, and electronic identity theft.
Similar to stalking off-line, online stalking can be a terrifying experience for victims, placing them at risk of psychological trauma, and possible physical harm. Many cyberstalking situations do evolve into off-line stalking, and a victim may experience abusive and excessive phone calls, vandalism, threatening or obscene mail, trespassing, and physical assault."

"An example is CBS' show "Jericho" that they almost canceled. One of the things that ["Jericho" online support groups] did was organize a Meebo room to discuss how to get CBS to put it back on the air. It's just one of many, many things that Internet users did. So, fast-forward three months or so, and CBS put "Jericho" on the air, and what they did was, they put a lot of video content from the show inside a Meebo room and put that on the CBS site so viewers can keep in touch with the show until the new season's ready and talk with each other."
**** I can't believe they'd have the nerve to mention the lousy Jericho chat. What a mess! I never saw so much porn and people pretending to be other people. Meebo and CBS should be ashamed.****

The Monster Fan of the Week is someone I have watched a lot and a person who remains quiet yet works hard for Jericho.
She's always commenting, posting, and going about promoting Jericho as she sees fit. I admire her dedication.
The Monster Fan of The Week is judist63.
Congratulations and thanks for all your hard work.
From Rich at Copywrite Ink:
"As the old saying goes, truth is sometimes stranger than fiction, and maybe doubly so online. Two anonymous identity stories have played out very differently in recent weeks; they are dramatically lopsided and in the wrong direction."

Donate to The Fund For Animals
Sponsor A Homeless Animal or Donate
You may also donate to your local shelter. It doesn't have to be money;it may be blankets or any other items an animal needs.
There's always someone who is hard to buy for. If that person is an animal lover, why not make a donation to the shelter in his/her name? You can specify the purpose for the donation (spay/neuter fund, building improvements, pet food or toys, etc).
" The Marshall County Humane Society is dedicated to animal welfare. Our small shelter takes in stray dogs and cats and companion animals that for many reasons are no longer wanted by their owners. We take care of animal cruelty cases in our county, and have a spay/neuter program to help control the overpopulation of pets. We are proud to say that in 2000 we placed more than 300 pets in adoptive homes in Marshall County, Indiana."
You may also help my new family take care of me since they are so kind to foster me. I'm not expensive but they could use some help with food bills.
Just go here and there's a button on the right for donations.
"Be famous! Tell the world you care and sponsor a dog untill they get adopted. We'll post your name on the adoption page next to your sponsored dog and send you updates on how your dog is doing for $5.00 a week!
Please keep in mind we are a non-profit organization and all money, food, bedding, toys ect. go towards the care of the animals."
There are items you can donate for less than $5! They have a list.
Please help all my friends for Christmas. I have angels but so many of them don't. We will love you forever. Thank you.

My name is Boo(actually Arabelle) and I would like to ask you to participate in a very special Christmas project.
Had my mom's friends not saved me from the shelter I would have been euthanized. I am not the only pet in danger.Look what's happening to my friends. Here are some facts:
It costs U.S. taxpayers an estimated $2 billion each year to round up, house, kill, and dispose of homeless animals.
Over 56% of dogs and puppies entering shelters are killed, based on reports from over 1,055 facilities across America.
An estimated 5 million cats and dogs are killed in shelters each year. That's one about every six and one half seconds. (The Humane Society of the United States) Millions more are abandoned, only to suffer from illness or injury before dying.
In six years one unspayed female and her offspring, can reproduce 67,000 dogs.
Seven dogs & cats are born every day for each person born in the U.S. Of those, only 1 in 5 puppies and kittens say in their original home for their natural lifetime. The remaining 4 are abandoned to the streets or end up at a shelter.
The Humane Society of the United States provided these statistics:
* Number of cats and dogs entering shelters each year:
8–10 million (HSUS estimate)
* Number of cats and dogs euthanized by shelters each year:
4–5 million (HSUS estimate)
* Number of cats and dogs adopted from shelters each year:
3–5 million (HSUS estimate)
* Number of cats and dogs reclaimed by owners from shelters each year:
Between 600,000 and 750,000—15–30% of dogs and 2–5% of cats entering shelters (HSUS estimate)
* Number of animal shelters in the United States:
Between 4,000 and 6,000 (HSUS estimate)
* Percentage of dogs in shelters who are purebred:
25% (HSUS estimate)
* Average number of litters a fertile dog can produce in one year: 2
* Average number of puppies in a canine litter: 6–10
I had angels who saved me. Not all pets do. Come back tomorrow for Part II on
Boo's Chrismas Angels to see how you can help. Please help save my friends.
