How Do I Report a Member Who Is Harrassing Me?

There's a psycho woman who after I blocked her personal messages trolls the forums to see where I'm posting so she can continue to harass me (and not provide any specific information as to what that post is about, just to continue her truly psychotic ramblings). How can I report her to TripAdvisor so they'll get her to stop bothering me on this site? Thanks!)

Hopefully this will help.

Even if the topics aren't exactly what you are looking for just select one of the topics at the right side of the page and remove the text in the subject line that's above the dialog box and enter your own text there.

You've already had some good advice from Anemone; I'll just add some more details. You could use this e-mail form from the Help Center to get in touch with TA staff about your problem; I assume you're already using the "Report as inappropriate" button.

It may help to give specific examples in your message to TA from posts that this member has made; sometimes individual messages seem okay, until examined as part of the bigger picture over several postings.

Finally, it's not usually wise to respond directly to such postings; because you're upset, you may find your responses also violate TA's forum guidelines (see them here: tripadvisor.com/help/what_are_the_guidelines… ) and TA's moderators don't consider provocation an excuse; postings that cross the line will likely get deleted. Also, in some cases, the poster is are doing this just for the thrill of getting a rise out of you--so don't give it to them.
