Last week the harassing letters and threats from a blog reader began.

I contacted a well-placed former client who used his immense influence to put a stop to it.

In business, "Loyalty" is a word that's used a lot. This week I learned the true meaning of the word!

So sorry to hear you had to go through all of this, Yoni -- but I am so glad that the "bad apple" was dealt with. Very glad to have you back!

That person was clearly mentally unstable. Seems like a flake or a troll at best. I'm glad the situation could be resolved.

I was wondering where you were and I glad to see you back.

It's too bad that someone takes out their ignorance on others. Unfortunately the internet is often faceless and things that some would never do in public they will online.

Welcome back.

Heidi,

Thanks so much for your reply and support. Sometimes in business, we take words like loyalty and friendship for granted. I don't think I'll do it again!

Yoni,

Welcome back! To further cheer you up from your unfortunate experience, have a look at the small business news roundup at Small Business Trends for Aug. 4 where you will find one of your posts as the lead article. Congrats on the anniversary and rest assured you're not the only Internet worker to have suffered from the nonsense of such "fans." Ah, the stories I could tell!

Shawn,

Thanks for your support! I'll check out the SBT roundup. I'll also respond to your email a bit later...soryy about the delay! Internet fans, as you state, are lurking out there. I'm just going to brush it off and move on!

All the best,

Yoni

Yoni,

I can't imagine what you, Rivkah and your family went through. I am glad a friend could help you out and we have all missed you here. Really happy you are back.

Susan,

Thanks for your support! It means a lot!

I was thinking that posting on BizSugar might end. I didn't want the harassment to follow and appear here.

It was not really frightening...more angering than anything else. With the situation seemingly taken care of, it's great to be back!

Duncan,

Thanks, as always for your support! I guess it's just one of those things that happens. For obvious reasons, I didn't want BizSugar to get flooded with these kinds of communications. I'm glad it didn't happen. In any case, problem solved...and it's good to be back!

Yoni, my heart goes out to you and your family. What a horrible ordeal to have to live through. I was worried when you stopped contributing to BizSugar - I felt there was an edge to your writing for a short while before you suspended the blog. I never could have guessed it was pure, stupid hatred. I'm so glad you're back - we all love you here!
