It really is quite heartbreaking ... although their suspicions are clearly unfounded, their feelings are very real and debilitating for victims.

Rexxfield CEO Michael Roberts today discussed his recent blog post about Cyber Paranoia "I have observed six such cases in the last year alone. It really is quite heartbreaking because although their suspicions are clearly unfounded, their feelings are very real and debilitating for victims."

Roberts explained that "we have helped many cyber bullying victims over the last several years, initially they're clearly distressed by the attacks, but I have observed some of them slipping into an abyss of depression and delusion, sometimes over as span of just a few months."

The symptoms are almost identical case by case, "they always, and I mean always, believe that people have videotaped them, or have covertly taken photographs, or are publishing demeaning articles about them and distributing them through the Internet for all and sundry to see. However, they can NEVER actually find the materials that they genuinely believe are out there." Roberts added "I try to explain that the absence of primary documentation or evidence to support their fears is proof they worry without cause, but they cannot seem to deal with this Logic in their condition"

Roberts made it very clear that he is not a mental health professional when he said "this stuff is way above my pay grade; that being said it appears we have the basis for an important study should interested and qualified professionals wish to investigate further".

Rexxfield CEO Michael Roberts has 16 Years experience in high end information technology training with focus on network security, privacy, e-xtortion, cyber-bullying, identity theft, tortuous interference through brand defamation and online libel.

Michael's specialty is in assisting victims of internet libel, online defamation, electronic smear campaigns, and other abuses of free speech. He draws on considerable personal experience and anguish in this area.
