I need help shutting down a FB bully. Any tricks?

They have been harassing my wife, who must use FB for work (so pulling the plug isnt an option)

FB is not helping as the bully is posting in generic ways such as "the lady that lives in the blue house two doors down is a slut"

And things like posting memes and tagging her and her work associates/clients! So FB people won't help and blocking won't help because the word is "broadcast" with each attack through the "community ". So even if she ignores, she gets asked by others... "Hey did you see what they said...."

Is there any web sites with strategies to shut this person down somehow?

She's devastated.

So saying things like "breast cancer magnets on a purple mustang look like [censored]!" (Which totally targets nobody but actually targets my wife directly) .... is nothing police can act upon. He said being "mean" is not breaking a law.

The stuff they do is even more cunning than that. To explain to a third person who doesn't know our life or house or family composition is nearly impossible. In other words it is so specific as to seem generic and inoffensive to a true "stanger" to the situation.

I never thought as an adult I would know of someone so evil as this woman.

Oh, another example... lets say my wife is in a sales field for facial products and she posts a special sale on two bottles of a green tea facial clenser... well the woman will post for days about chemicals in our bodies and the will post a toxic sludge meme in a green barrel with the same sale star design as my wife's business. So notice how nothing is exactly named or pictured but the themes of design and color and topic are used so strategically but generic to a "moderator". Whereas people with my wife and her in the similar group of Facebook feed will see the intended "connections". So a true defamation case would look "thin". As far as they would claim "coincidence" to the posts rather than malice.

So cunning. And problem is that this lady is "connected" and other women fear her literally financially.

My wife does not reply in any way. My wife's livelihood requires her posts be public so that the public can see them and interact with her, this woman as a member of the public sees them and as described above continues her subversive attacks. Also as a member of our real world community this woman sees our life and property amd interacts eith third parties which through casual generic conversations giver he nuggets to focus her veiled attacks.

Its kinda like as if as a teenager a bully would stand outside the exit of school which is the only exit open after sports practice amd terrorize you just by being there with potential real attack. Just the standing presence in your only path home is the bullying. Yet if you apporoach an adult and tell them.... their only reply is "they have the right to stand there" "they havnt really done anything to you".

It sounds more like harrassment than being "mean" to me. Call your local PD regardless of what your nephew says. File a report. Have a lawyer draft a letter - that in itself may shut her up.

If you can't get the page moderator to block the woman then it sounds like a toxic group to be in anyway.

If you know who is doing it tell them to stop IRL. Or pay a lawyer for a couple of hours to write them a letter and threaten to sue. Would this person be willing to fight your frivolous lawsuit? And there's always the old fashioned way... Trolling online is all fun and games until someone knocks on your door and asks if they can come in and talk for a minute.

If Facebook had thier act together they wouldn't even tolorate that level because it's still directed harrasment.

Go the route of giving FB some bad press about them allowing harrasment of their members.

If you know who she is, maybe it's time for some "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap". smile

This bully sounds like a talented and experienced IRL troll. So use countertroll protocol to contain and eliminate the threat.
