[Me] > That's me... Do you want yours and Trish's picture on the front page? > With a large "STALKER" banner? [David Brooks] I doubt you have the skill to do that. Prove me wrong, Shagnasty. Do it *NOW*!
So, suitably instructed, I complied.

Well, there you have it. This man, David Brooks of Devon, England, is one of the most despicable persons I have ever run into on the Interwebs. Google up 'BoaterDave', 'BoaterDaveTJ', '~BD~', 'BD1', 'BD2', 'Beady', 'Imbeady2', 'David B', 'David B.', 'DavidB', 'David_B', 'David DewGud', 'DavidDewgud ', 'BDonTJ', 'firstname.lastname@example.org', 'CommanderB', 'Commander_B', 'Angela Bennett', 'Byker', 'DonOldham', 'Tony Smith', 'Tinkerer', 'Davoud1945', 'Brawdy14', 'HunterBD', 'Steve Carroll', 'I.Mackie', 'GA11', 'Marley', 'SaabOwner', 'Owner', 'C.A.Strate', 'A. Student', 'David in Devon', 'Dudley Brooks', 'Mrs Parrot', 'David G. Brooks', 'Russell Newbery', 'David B 1466', 'DGB', 'David', 'Anonymous', 'Christine Grist', 'Big Brother', 'PSA', 'davidbrooks_5408', 'Sir Topham Hatt', [<—47] and dozens of other pseudonyms. Most of his 'Microsoft Answers' forum posts read 'From A. User' because they cancel his accounts as they find them. He just recently used my domain name as a nym: ( M-ID: <email@example.com> ) He stalks innocent good people, Microsoft MVPs, web forum owners where he has been banned (most of them), posts pictures of your dead relatives and/or their obituaries years after the fact, insults people with cancer, and lots more. He's been doing it since about 2006, under the guise of hunting 'bad guys.' So far he hasn't caught a single one. He even supports a known 'bad guy.'
On 17 November 2015, a person named Nil responded to David Brooks in a Windows newsgroup where he stalks:
"You're a well-known net kook and stalker. Your fake cutesy nicey-nice
facade is completely ineffective at disguising your obvious and true
malignancy. You earn every rudeness you get. ... He recognizes you as the
toxic cancer you are."
If you should ever encounter David Brooks, DO NOT give him any personal information. He is an incorrigible stalker and world's greatest pest.
