I ran into an issue and am not sure how to navigate it online. It was dealt with offline, but I feel like continuing the action online will let this person know how serious we are.
My SIL and I have had problems for years. They got so bad that we have not spoken, or even really seen each other in over a year. We were friends on fb and she unfriended me, no problem. She is mutual friends with one of my husband's friends, which is how he saw this conversation. She commented on a status of this person saying something about how nice it is that she and her SIL get along and how she doesn't know how she wound up with such a d*#cheb##. (I'm not really sure what's ok to say on these forums but I think you get the picture.) My husband saw this and immediately called and confronted his sister. She, as she was still typing more online, told him it was true and he should be ashamed. He said that he not only wanted their business offline but said she was out of line for putting it there.
This posting of hers carried on for 4 days more. She eventually began posting flat out (provable) lies about me, my parents and family. My husband dealt with everything and in the end they stopped speaking. (SHe unfriended him too)
My husband reported this whole incident to fb but nothing was ever done. I brought the printouts of the postings to a friend in law enforcement and they said it was slander and cyber bullying and that I could take her to court, which I have no interest in doing. Does anyone know if fb will do anything or if we should have reported it differently? We just want her to know that she crossed a line and am not sure she understands it b/c it still happens. Sorry this was such a long post.
