Please be mindful that this is not a cure-all to the human problem of the stalker troll himself. As far as stopping a stalker troll goes, that is the business of law enforcement professionals handling jurisdictional cooperation. Similarly, for positively altering a stalker troll's behavior, significant work like that would probably require a licensed psychiatrist experienced at helping patients with specific mental issues, including stalking. So, if you see a virtual world product offering a quick fix tool based feature claiming to stop a stalker troll, or you read an avatar profile offering a protection service to stop stalkers; it would be wise for you to realize that caring for the actual human stalker mental condition is likely well beyond the individual tool maker / service provider ability. This example case suggests troll symptoms caused by a stalker with mental issues. It is also known to be possible that stalker trolling symptoms (sim crashing, failed teleports, slowing of sim server data flow, and login blocking) may be one sane individual's handiwork, motivated by over zealous competition, and / or ideological reasons. These examples pertain to one individual culprit. Solution scenarios become more complex when multiple trolls and organizational backing are involved.
