Subject: Being stalked

I have been stalked for the last three months by someone who obviously has a lot more computer savvy than me. I don't even know what a bot is (but suspect it's someone with no skills in this area, like me). In the last few months I have learned about self-deleting emails and sites that you pay to tell you more information about a person than you'd normally find surfing the web. So, apart from changing email addresses, my identity on the net, phone numbers etc. - I have also started researching the whole 'hacking' thing - how someone (overseas) could possibly find out where I work (secure place, I thought) and ring me there, I.P. addresses - do I need to research and change mine because it makes someone privy to what I am typing right now? etc etc. Sorry if I sound so naive - but apart from throwing away my Mac and my phones - I don't know how to stop this, not even sure if it will. It is an interesting world you all live in!
