This Bebe saga is like watching a train wreck. As a security expert, I thought I'd give some advice to the people who are being harassed by a certain element trying to hide behind computer aliases by using different e-mail addresses.

Rule #1: If someone is harassing you by e-mail, don't respond. They want you to get in a war of words with them and then possibly use it against you by saying YOU are harassing THEM.

Rule #2: All harassing e-mail should be forwarded to the abuse/harassment department of the harasser's e-mail provider. The abuse addresses for most providers is abuse@nameofprovider. For example, for Hotmail, it's abuse@hotmail.com. It's also a good idea to print out all the harassing e-mail you get. If someone tries to lie and forge e-mail by saying you're harassing them, the Internet Service Provider will know it because they have records of when you've logged on and when you sent e-mail. People who try and trump up phony charges will have this backfire on them, and they just get the scrutiny put on them.

Rule #3: Use mail filters to block the harasser. If necessary, change your e-mail address.

A word of warning to anyone who thinks they can harass people through e-mail and hide behind aliases. Even if you use what you think is an anonymous e-mail account such as through Hotmail or Yahoo, it's still traceable to your Internet Service Provider, which has records of when you've logged on and sent e-mail. A lot of us computer experts can still find out if multiple e-mail addresses are coming from the same computer. It's just like people who make harassing phone calls to a local phone number and they think they can't be traced because the local number doesn't appear on their phone bill. Wrong. The phone company still has records of all calls you make (even local phone calls, even if you have caller ID blocking) which can be turned over to law enforcement at the request of people who are being harassed. If someone falsely accuses you of making harassing phone calls, the phone company can easily look up records to see who's telling the truth. It's largely the same with ISPs.

Someone should tell Bebe to read the Constitution of the United States and learn the difference between freedom of speech and harassment. When people say "Bebe Buell is a crazy bitch" on a message board or elsewhere, that's an opinion which people are entitled to under the First Amendment. AND THEY CAN SAY IT AS MUCH AS THEY WANT. When people say "I heard Elvis Costello feels like vomiting in disgust every time he hears Bebe Buell's name." That's gossip, also freedom of speech protected by the Constitution. But when you cross the line and start threatening people relentlessly, that's harassment.

When you look at Bebe's life and how so many people for so many years have wanted nothing to do with her after they've had the misfortune of getting involved with her, it's clear that she hasn't changed and she never will change. She also has a pattern of blaming other people for problems she's caused. It's typical behavior from someone who's lost touch with reality.

If Bebe is reading this---I think you should be committed to a mental hospital. You're a deeply troubled and angry loser, you're not fooling anyone with these crazy stunts you're trying to pull, and I doubt all the medication in the world can cure you. That's my opinion, BITCH!
