A while back, I've been stalked and harassed by certain users on the site. Despite the fact that I've blocked them and don't bother arguing with them anymore, they have stalked my account and even gone as far as to go to my personal Facebook profile. I've abandoned my last.fm account since this because I can't stand the feeling of being watched and followed by this certain user.

I've already contacted the site regarding this, but I don't know if anything can be done. No I'm going to get persay the police involved because in all honesty, the most this guy has done is gone to my personal Facebook, which I've taken locking precaution since. Any advice? I don't want to just up and make another lastfm account (I did that before with my first account since this user stalked my account with the multiple accounts he's made) knowing he would just make another account and look for me.

Any help?

Blocking doesn't work? Is there nothing that works on this site anymore?

The blocking feature doesn't give you the little 'THIS MESSAGE CANNOT BE SEEN BECAUSE THIS PERSON IS BLOCKED " or some variation like that anymore. You can SEE when they mock you.

On my old account I had to do that but with the new one I just gave up.

Not even the most basic of features, unfortunately.

Just ignore and they should get bored eventually.

Don't worry though, they said for the next update they were going to add the power to browse images by upload date so I'm sure that'll be a big help in your situation.

Crossing fingers they do. I haven't gone to my account since the incident and only been using it for scrobbles.

Still find it unnerving he'd go to my personal facebook account.

He clearly has nothing better to do with his free time. Like I said, just ignore him. I'm sure you have by now, but make sure your Facebook is set to extra private settings. Along with having your shouts limited to followers only. Responding/reacting to him is what he wants. Trust me, he can't keep this up forever.

Fair enough, hence why I abandoned my lastfm account and gone more on scrobbling. I've also set my FB with my private settings. As for my account with followers, I mainly talk to the people. I did set my account before I blocked it to only talk to my followers.

Seems to be the case since the first time he figured out my account, he messaged me saying something about my user name and then calling me a "fag-goth". I told him to fuck off (advice from one user who's sort of a friend) and since he's just be laughing at my listens going "LOL HE'S A DEPRESSIVE FAGGOT, HE NEEDS PROZAC".

But yeah, I'm just ignoring him and find his entire shtick amusing.

Yeah, I am pissed they got rid of features I like blocking unwanted friend requests and now it's followers and we have no choice but to accept them on our  profile and their profile. I do not care who sees my profile so as long as I can block them from sending me messages and from following me. I have some creepy douchebag moron who on the old lastfm  was called a friend collector and hasn't scrobbled since 2010 and I wish I can block them and tell them to fuck off and whoever thought that having followers and not friend requests anymore had no clue what the fuck they did when they implemented this current feature, but I hope to get it fixed soon. My account is currently deactivated for now until they fix  this mess we're currently in. Because these unwanted followers and stalkers is getting out of hand, lastfm staff.

Followers are fine as long as you're still able to block them (which, in normal circumstances, would stop them from sending you messages instead of just *hiding* them from your personal view, and also stop them from following you) if they're being psychos. Some follower can be mean to you on Twitter, you block them, and that's it, they're gone. I just can't believe a *social* website is lacking a functionality as basic as this one.

Hm, this seems to be an argument for Last.fm to figure out some way to change your user name, so that you could save your accumulated scrobbles while becoming invisible to your stalker.
