    This is for the good stuff.
    I like this one to start.
    Olympic medal hopeful shames stalker on Facebook


    "Ariane Friedrich, a German high jumper expected to contend for a medal at the upcoming Summer Olympics, posted the name and email address of a Facebook stalker who had allegedly been sending her explicit photographs over the social networking service. German authorities are now investigating the matter, according to Friedrich's manager. The matter has touched off an intense national debate on privacy with Friedrich, who is trained as a police officer, at the forefront.
    "I've been offended in the past, sexually harassed and I've had a stalker before," she wrote in a recent Facebook post that included the name and email address of a man who she says sent her explicit messages and pictures of his genitals. "It's time to act, it's time to defend myself. And that's what I'm doing."

    The 28-year-old is the German record holder in the high jump. She won a gold medal at the 2010 European indoor championships and a bronze medal at the world championships in 2009. An injury forced her to miss the entire 2011 season."

    Yeah I said it!

    "In a later message, she responded to criticisms that publicly outing the man circumvented the legal system.

    "The removal of anonymity is a means to clarify," she wrote in a statement translated from German. "Just think of all the children, young people and adults who are secretly harassed by perverts and don't know what to do or how to defend themselves. Should we not go forward as a good example and demonstrate strength?"
    German newspapers have asked whether Friedrich had a legal right to publicly disclose the man's name. In that country, names of offenders aren't disclosed in the media."

    Things aren't as simple as they appear on the first glance. That guy says that his account has been taken over by somebody else. I doubt that a stalker would be so stupid that he harasses others together with mentioning his name and address. It could as well be the case that the stalker used the account, so somebody else serves a the culprit.

    There have been cases of criminals (specifically robbers) posting their exploits and personal information together on Facebook publicly.

    Never underestimate the distance of some outliers from the mean.

    I think once you send pics of your junk to someone else who did not want them you have to expect that there's a fair chance that they will enter the public arena.


    I try to make it a point to not take pics of my junk. life is so much simpler that way.
