I have had 3 of my posts deleted because they link back to eith my site, or a site that has a link to my site on it. I was told that this site does not support vigilanteism.
I hadn't considered myself that until it was put that way. I was just truly excited that for the first time in my life I felt free of the bonds of fear and self loathing. To me it felt VERY healthy and empowering to build a site to expose my perp to hsi friends, family, and peers. It also is a resource for all his other victims to get in touch and support each other. A few have already contaced me and it has been an amazing experience.
I does feel GREAT to think that my perp is feeling the SHAME that I felt for so many years.
In my excitement I only wanted to share this with others on the board. This all came about in the last 7 weeks. 7 weeks ago I was a diferent person living in fear of being exposed.
Through the support of THIS site I was given a voice and finally came out to my friends and family about the abuse. It was then that I got the ball rolling. I chose to "push back". When I found out that he is still offending I went off the deep end. He needed to be stopped. (but that is another story)
So I apologize for posting those links. In my excitment I forgot that not everyone here is in the same state of healing that I am. I do remember the mess that I was when i first came here for support.
I guess part of me was looking for a pat on the back, and another part of me wanted others to know what is possible with just a few key clicks.
I am here to support anyone who needs support. I am here to return what was given to me. Kindness and understanding. My intent was NEVER to cause anyone here harm.
I am going to step away from MS for a while. It is obvious that my presence is/could be disturbing to others seeking healing. Maybe once my issues are put to bed I will be able to contribute here in a healthy way.
My sincerest apologies to the Mods and members of MS.
Good luck on your road to healing. I hope you all find peace.
A vigilante is someone who takes enforcement of law or moral code into their own hands. The term vigilante stems from the name "Vigiles Urbani" given to the nightwatchmen of Ancient Rome who were tasked with fighting fires and keeping a lookout for runaway slaves and burglars. In modern Western society, the term is frequently applied to those citizens who "take the law into their own hands," meting out "frontier justice" when they perceive that the actions of established authorities are insufficient. Vigilantism is sometimes vilified when it gives way to criminal behavior on the part of the vigilante.
