As for the stalking make sure you don't give out any personal info, or flag them or try ignoring them, maybe they keep bothering you because you are the only one they get a response from. Good Luck.

You will find mean and rude people anywhere and Ask is no exception. That said, what's so rude about someone asking you the same question you asked them?

That sounds like a child. No sensible adult would act like that.

I'm with FatIKenney on this one. If you wouldn't want to answer a question, don't ask it. That said, the anonymity of the internet allows people to act the way that they wish they could in real life. They're simply taking out aggression in the safest way they know how.

Softball. This is a classic example of "the pot calling the kettle black." People have the right to leave their opinion, which you decided was mean. However, your comment did exactly the same thing, you judged someone as being "wrong" and denied them their civil rights. When you point a finger at someone, remember, four are pointing right back at you. Why are you being mean? This wasn't even your question. Yeah, yeah, I'm being mean, too.

Could be because of stupid questions with no thought about what you mean to say.

"How old are you? Well, how old are you." There is absolutely nothing rude or mean about that answer. Perhaps they thought their age was none of your business. When people ask me that question on Ask, my answer is always "How old do you think I am?

They posted a question about my age

I'm confused. In any event, don't get hung up on anything you read here, it's just the Internet, and it has no more importance to your life than you give it. Be spunky.

Don't let it get to you, there is always one in every crowd. Listen to what they say, if you like it give them a green. If you don't , just forget it and move on. Really it's no big deal. Fight for the things that are important to you.

If you encounter content that is offensive or harassing, please use the "report as" link to bring it to a moderator's attention. If the person is on your follower's list, you can go to their profile and click "block" which will prevent them from continuing to follow you. If they continue to harass you, you can also contact Customer Service for additional assistance.

Something to keep in mind as well though, when you see content like that - don't respond to it. People like that often feed off of the negative responses that they get from others, and responding generally only makes that worse. If you report them, and then ignore them, they will eventually move on to something else, when they aren't getting the reactions that they are looking for.
