As I said, all I want to know is whether he is correct that in relation to what happened previously, a message posted online by somebody else would mean anything? I did not put this person up to it. He says it is 'a breach of confidentiality' because he wrongly assumes that I have showed all of his messages to me to this person and thinks I put her up to posting a comment alluding to him online.
Yes, kind of. But also whether the actions of an acquaintance of mine would be a problem for me with regard to what happened before? He frequently sends me instant messages containing screenshots of what this girl has been saying on Twitter - these are just her general tweets and in no way connected to him. Because he keeps doing this, yesterday I told her (privately) that he was doing it, because I thought it was wrong - and God knows why, she then decided that posting a tweet alluding to him would be a good idea. He then sent me a screenshot of the tweet in question and said 'So the gloves are off. You're getting her to do your dirty work, she's landed you in the shit, just because you didnt post it it doesn't mean you won't be implicated' etc etc. He claims that because I had said something similar to him (privately) a few moments before she posted it, I must have asked her to post this public message. That's NOT true. I had merely told her that he is screenshotting her tweets. He says that to 'share private text messages between me and him' with her is 'a betrayal of confidentiality and that I must have put her up to posting it, therefore I am 'in the shit.' I haven't shared private messages, I warned her that he screenshots her tweets and the rest is in his head.
Sorry...after he sent me screenshots/messages which were basically slagging her off, I privately told her he had done this because I felt it was wrong and just plain weird. Instead of doing nothing but blocking him online, she then posted a public tweet which said 'I hope when I am in my sixties I am not screenshotting people's conversations and obsessing over girls in their twenties.' He sent it to me accusing me of putting her up to it. She then deleted it which he said 'further compounds my complicity.' Because of everything I described in my first question a few months back, he now says I am guilty of something and reading between the lines, was again saying he would take this to his lawyer. I'm sorry this is quite rambling and confusing, but I don't really know which way is up where he is concerned. Thanks.
Thanks - so if he did take it to his lawyer, should I expect to hear from them or given that he obviously wouldn't tell them what he's been doing to me, would they advise him not to? He has definitely harassed me - I have told him many times that I want him to leave me alone and earlier this year he sent me 100 instant messages over the course of a few weeks before I gave in and replied to him again. Also could I ask what the outcome of something like this might be if he has contacted his lawyer?
Ok, thank you. I hope so. Thanks for your advice.
