      I do yes, nobody should have to endure any kind of stalking I believe and nowadays we tend to hear about it more and more which is a shame.

      I do think it would be something that would really have to be worked on before anyone was punished for it though because as harsh as it sounds there are many people that would use it to get their own back on people.

      Course, stalking is bad, albeit I'll move it in the rants and debates section. I think it fits more in there. As for should it be criminalised, I dunno.

      Accidental stalking is alright though.

      I don't think so, I think either kind of stalking is wrong and immoral.

      should be, but it be impossible to prove the person was stalking and could slow down the court system even more.

      is not impossible to prove somones stalking you,but it opens up all sorts of avenues for people to take revenge on say ex partners work mates etc,false accusations etc
      which will slow the system down,stalking in any form even internet stalking,to me its a form of bullying
