    So long as the intent was just to show then nope. But I would call it stupid and I might be alarmed by such stupidity.

    I'd consider it a "dangerous" act. Not an "aggressive" one though.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Stalking is definitely wrong, but that is an intent situation. Following in itself is not aggressive without intent, for instance if I am on my property and follow strangers off of it my intent is to let them understand that they are not welcome and I want them to respect my boundaries, following a strange looking individual may simply be to remain aware of the situation. However if someone continues to follow another after it has been stated they are not welcome to do so is absolutely aggressive.

    Stalking is the intent to remain in contact when unwelcome in the most simple definition. Following to cause mental anguish or discomfort is harassment, and of course following to commit an attack is assault so it really boils down to the end goal.
    While stalking might be wrong... it is fun.

    HAHA. Caught me off guard there.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    If you aren't stalking someone you aren't living life... and ruining theirs. It is win/lose which for me is win/win.

    And not for nothing...but it seems to me we should celebrate our commonalities, not try to fabricate 'differences'.

    Following some one is illegal activity. If a police is following some on is means that's a legal because he is on duty.

    No, I assure you. Following someone in itself is NOT an illegal activity.

    Actually no it is not illegal. Paparazzi do it all the time and so do private investigators.

    How can you say this ?
    If you are doing you are daily activities and you are observing that some on is shadowing you and what do you think on him ?
