The other IP to watch out for is: IP 184.108.40.206
[This is not what I set up this site to do to discuss this. But since I have two stalkers-Christine Gounder and Lito Vilisoni – who will not go away unless I take drastic action to out them, I won’t be able to focus on setting up this site fully. Doing this, as difficult as it is, is the only way to ensure that they stop their abuse towards me. Ignoring their nasty emails hasn’t worked. It only leaves me upset and unable to focus on the rest of the work here. So let me address this one and for all.]
Getting threatening and abusive emails rarely happens to me. I have never been the sustained target of anonymous nasty emails. That is, until I was asked to step in and troubleshoot problems created in a newsroom by Christine Gounder and Lito Vilisoni about 9 months ago. There are good journalists and let’s be honest, there are rotten bad journalists too. These two fit into the latter and I do not say that lightly. Their stalking behaviour, a sustained attack over 9 months, only leads me to conclude that they are either unbalanced and they are sociopaths in the sense that they lacked any conscience about what they have done, and its impact. They even targetted my children! Disgusted, sickened, mad and upset sums up my initial reaction.
I publish this as a form of online protection because Christine Gounder and Lito Vilisoni have continued to stalk me online long after I had any more dealings with them. I did not realise I would become such an obsession for them. Disappointing to see that in two women who profess to be journalists and are currently working for Radio New Zealand. They did not get a reference from PMN.
That two grown women, Christine Gounder and Lito Vilisoni, who are supposed to be working as journalists, would spend so much time stalking me online and 0ff-line, is strange, to say the least. Judging from their anonymous emails and the threats they put in, they have invested so much time and hatred into me. It has been frightening receiving these anonymous emails for the last 9 months. But the fear left me once the IP addresses identified them in Wellington. It could well be a Radio New Zealand IP.
They are harrassing. They are cyber-bullies. Christine Gounder, an Indo-Fijian who blogs regularly on Fiji, is practised at writing anonymous emails from what she has posted online. There is a lot that is unsaid here about their conduct and the things that went on.
Suffice to say, they are malicious, they are nasty and every dishonest device they could employ for their case, they did. I would not trust them at all in any setting.
A code of ethics for journalists, they missed it somehow. v They possessed so little decency of character and integrity.
What did I do? I reluctantly accepted a six month contract to come in and trouble-shoot a highly toxic newsroom they led. I oversaw the transition and helped to transition needed changes to improve the work and address the issues that needed to be addressed with the teams they led.
I reluctantly publish this and do so as a way of stopping them. I will name them and shame them, if that is what it takes for them to stop their online harrassment and cyper-bullying. Let this serve as a warning to Christine Gounder and Lito Vilisoni not to do this to anyone else.
Christine Gounder and Lito Vilisoni have gone out of their way to find out personal information about my life, they emailed about details of my life that are of no significance to anyone except obviously the two of them. That’s not normal behaviour, surely. They comment on my children whom they know nothing about. That’s the straw that broke the camel’s back. They are just plain evil. Balanced individuals do not behave in that way. When they start talking about my children, that’s dangerous.
Their practice is the same: send in a comment under two or three different aliases. This time, they used: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. They pretend to mis-spell the last two names. I will be passing on the messages to Police’s E-Crime unit along with the other details provided by modern technology.
The IP address is 220.127.116.11. They also use the other IP address: IP 18.104.22.168.
They regularly check this website and check this post. They/She/He, however she wishes to describe herself or himself regularly check my last post on their last email:
So please be warned. If you are encouraging yours and theirs to act in a way that is threatening and abusive, that is a crime. I don’t take any threats lightly.
Their IP addresses are 22.214.171.124 and IP 126.96.36.199 used by Christine Gounder and Lito Vilisoni. They should not be put into any areas of responsibility.
If you have any information, please email in the strictest confidence.
UPDATE: Thanks for your replies so far. Thank you.
