Gateworld Rant Ahead

A lot of you will know Rac80 and her 'reputation' for giving negetive as a form of cyber bullying, well it seems she's started on me again, I got a "Same old same old" red rep from her again, so I named and shamed and called her out as a bully, knowing what she's done to elliecat and others, she sent me a pious little note calling me out for abusive postings, cheeky cow!!, I sweetly told her that at least I have the balls to call her out in public and not hide behind the posting system. She also said she had reported the post and the note I left her on her PS telling her what a poisonous bitch she is, so I replied by saying I was seeking out Darren's advice about how to deal with cyber bullies, because that is what she is. I don't like ranting and name calling but she really is a nasty piece of work behind the scenes and this is the only place I can vent without the Mod's circling.

I've gone to Darren with this, I'm lead to understand the Mods can't or are unwilling to deal with this problem. It's not for me that I'm doing this, I'm a tough old bird with a hide like a rhino but it's the younger, more vunerable people that need something to be done. Bullying, be it cyber or playground follows the same pattern, they stay just inside what is acceptable behaviour so they cannot be accused of breaking the T&C or R&R, some youngster's are too scared to speak up for several reasons, the think they won't be believed because the poster is popular, or the Mod's won't take their complaint seriously because they think they are perceived as a troublemaker or they fear reprisal's from the bully's 'Gang'. I hope Darren takes this seriously and not bury his head in the sand going "LALALALALA can't hear you, bullying doesn't happen on my board".

I fit into the category that is too afraid but when I'm pushed too far - that's when the little devil in me comes out to play. And I'm being pushed too far at the moment, attacking my friends is like attacking me and that's just something you don't do. Then my protective streak comes out as well.

You don't mess with the little lemming, cause there's a lion hidden inside. :p

I really hope Darren pays attention to it, cause otherwise it's going to get out of hand, if it isn't already.

How out of hand is it?

I know elliecat has been recieving the brunt of it for a while and a couple of others have said they've been a victim of hers too

Thanks for being protective, Maybe we should start a protective group on GW, somewhere for members to go if they are under the impression they're being bullied

What disgusts me is that this is a 45 year old woman tormenting teenagers. I mean, how would she feel is someone did that to her daughter? She doesn't even contemplate that. Not only that, but she claims to be studying psychology or something, doesn't she? She's going to be the psychologist from hell if this is the way she treats people in real life.

That is disgusting, I'd expect it from a teenager or even someone in their early 20's but a woman with a daughter of her own!!

She's in law-school, with a minor in psychology, as far as I can tell. She has an LJ account with the same name. I googled her earlier today, to see if I could dig up something else about her....and she's a into Star Trek as well.

She's an enigma to me. How can someone like her, stoop so low and act the way she does? *shakes head* And let me tell you, she's the devil in disguise cause the assaults/insults are far from innocent ones

I did some digging. Her real name is Rachelle Hills. She says she is 46 years old on GateWorld. (I did a search). So she was born in 1962, and her birthdate checks out with the graduation listed at this Classmates.com profile as listed below:


http://www.alldanielfic.com/viewuser.php?uid=210&PHPSESSID=31adff6cf9cf212ceca9db1c3bca5af6 Where I found her real name.
http://www.classmates.com/directory/public/memberprofile/list.htm?regId=6224057 Classmates profile. Her age checks out with her Highschool graduation date. BYU, Psychology class of 1984. Purdue University, class of 2006.

I'm guessing she's from Indiana -- I have some evidence, but I'm checking into it.

Yup. She's from Indiana. I cross-referenced her name with Indiana on GW. And the account on classmates is her. She says she grew up in New England, the region where MA is.

I'm rather curious about this article: http://www.topix.com/forum/indy/TL10PI9LOPDQEMPUL But I can't get access to it. >.<

Other than that, she doesn't seem like a fraud.
