It's pretty creepy to track down a guy's address and then teach your kid it's okay to stalk someone and shove things into his mail slot. Mail it to him if you really just can't resist, but don't come to his front door.

Or maybe the kid wanted his favorite wrestler CM Punk to have a happy easter and the parent made a dubious call to make a silly fantasy come true because CM Punk's home location is not hard information to come by on the internet.

I know presuming motive and mindset of people based on two or fewer sentences of information is par for the course around here, but I don't think we should assume a Lotion On It's Skin scenario based on literary nothing. These fans most likely have boundary issues and poor social skills but I doubt most of them are complete sociopaths. John Lenon had a lot of "crazy," fans that probably qualified as stalkers but only one ended up being "that one."

That being said, it does only take one. Which is why Punk is being a stubborn idiot about a bodyguard. He doesn't need one forever, just for a few years until he's out of the public eye.

Well I wouldn't want to be stupid so I guess I'll just start assuming every person I see on the street is a murderer and yet also argue that I don't need any protection from them. Also make all my other posts the exact opposite I guess.

Nobody said anything about murderers, Captain Hyberbole. But it is creepy. It would be just as creepy if someone tracked down AJ Lee's address to hand-deliver flowers to her because they saw her on TV and had a crush on her. The way it's written, it sounds like he came home to find them at his door. After thousands of fans hound you all day, every day, no matter where you go, and one of them tracks you down and is standing between you and your front door while putting unknown things into it, you're supposed to smile and say thank you and have a pleasant chat? Or do you tell them to leave you alone? Now imagine if 500 people did the same thing. If he lets one person do it without complaint, that gives free license for everyone else to do it. You have as poor a grasp of personal boundaries as these people do.

My grasp of personal boundaries is fine. I for example don't put candy in celebrity mailboxes in my spare time.

To me describing fan behavior to celebrities specifically as "creepy" had a strong connotation of malevolent intent, so I think people should be careful about using it. Forgive me for thinking its maybe a little wrong for the first assumption being that a crazy stalker parentis teaching their child to be a crazy stalker instead of entertaining the possibility of a more innocuous motive for what, to be clear, I still think is clearly not an OK thing to do.

The solution is for him to let his contract expired, then sign with TNA. Those fans stalking him would quickly lose interest in him real fast.

From today's WO daily update:

quote:

--On yesterday's show we mistakenly said Cedric Alexander beat Adam Page in the pre-show at the ROH card. It was actually his former tag partner Caprice Coleman. We got different reports today saying it was Alexander, Coleman and Tadarius Thomas.

Spoiler: Cedric Alexander, Caprice Coleman and Tadarius Thomas are all black.

That's awful. Beyond none of these men looking alike, at least one of them, Caprice, wears tights whereas the other two, if I remember correctly, exclusively wear trunks these days.

I can maybe understand getting Coleman and Alexander confused since they used to be tag partners until recently, but Tadarius looks nothing like either of them.

Bobby Cruise was impossible to hear for the preshow so unless you know who is who on the roster it'd be guesswork on who was in the match. Trying to remember it later I was left with "Uh, the white Decade young boy... Adam Everett? No wait I think he's the one who does cool poo poo..." I don't really blame whoever it was who sent in the report.

The TaDarius thing came from a joke post someone made in the show thread on the board that the match was Adam Cole vs. Thomas. Clearly, it went over Dave's head.
