I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

(Language)

Twitter once again acting out anytime a snowflake liberal is offended.
Millions of twitter profiles have pictures of celebrities as their profile pic and profess their love to them.

I didn't see anything that constitutes "harassment" at all.

There's a very easy to find "block" button that she could've used.
Also it's not stalking when you follow a popular figure online. Or you're saying that we're all stalkers?

And it's different if you're some random nobody online vs. Martin Shrekli

What I am saying he seems obsessed with her. That is not good.

Twitter is absolutely justified here, unlike in the Milo neo-Nazi case.

Disgusting and creepy to Photoshop his picture replacing her husband's.

I don't know what Twitter normally dies or doesn't do, but this is one sick puppy.

Not sure if it belongs here, but interesting to me

https://www.reddit.com/r/personalfinance/comments/5mtova/im_dying_in_a_few_months_i_have_a_1200000_life/

Any way to retrieve the original post? It seems the OP deleted the text of his post

Quote from: reddit
Also, I'm 32 and she is 33 and I want to ensure she is taken care of as best as possible w/ a finance safety net for life (I know 1.2 millino isn't a lot for 40 years); is there a way I can put 50% in a mutual fund that she can only collect dividends from and 50% in a 20 year annuity or something?Welcoming all advice related.
Her income potential is roughly $30k-$40k/yr and will never go up probably
Also, we have no savings or 401k. I make 130k/yr and we live paycheck to paycheck because we are retardedly financially irresponsible....and somehow are able to waste that money without buying luxury goods, drugs, or gambling...
No need to say stuff like "sorry for what your going through and such", this isn't a sob story.
Edit: The amount of PM"s I've received from financial advisers wanting to help me out for a "percentage" iis hilariously sad :(
