One of my friends who goes by the handle @apurposefulwife on Twitter has been relentlessly stalked and harassed for the past 3 weeks by a serial nutcase who lives in Erie, PA named Joseph M. Placidi.
31-year old Joseph M. Placidi of Erie, Pennsylvania works as a customer service representative for Erie Insurance Group and goes by @placidijoe on Twitter. Mr. Placidi has utilized untold company time and resources (he is nonstop trolling day and night on Twitter boasting about how it’s a great pastime at his “boring job” as he refers to it) at Erie Insurance Group to create numerous sockpuppet accounts on Twitter of which he has admitted to using strictly for harassment:
Let’s make this very clear, since Joseph Placidi works such a boring job, he obviously has all the time in the world to create troll accounts with the intent of harassing people. In the past few weeks he has created dozens of sockpuppet accounts solely to harass apurposefulwife with the express intent of “running her off Twitter” for having her own *GASP* personal opinions.
People like Joseph M. Placidi (hilarious and ironic that my autocorrect keeps changing his name to placid) pride themselves on being “tolerant, open-minded, loving, and accepting” of different people and ideas, as well as a slew of progressive doctrines involving democracy, inclusiveness and diversity–except when you are a Mormon female who believes in baking fresh bread and staying home with her husband and raising a family.
When a woman like apurposefulwife doesn’t agree with Mr. Placidi’s worldview, she is a Nazi and a bigot and a racist and *insert any number of hackneyed progressive buzzwords here* and will be harassed by him until she is forcibly removed from the public sphere.
The question is, why is Joseph Placidi so intent on harassing women day in and day out on Twitter? I thought progressives supported freedom of religion? I thought progressives supported women? I thought one of the major tenets of progressivism is “listen and believe” for all women, to discourage bullying and harassment of women and to protect all women from online stalking and abuse?
Obviously Mr. Placidi is a bald-faced liar and a fraud because he doesn’t believe in supporting all women–only those who agree with his one-sided worldview (a lot like a Nazi). And he thinks any and all manner of unyielding bullying, abuse, stalking and harassment is “fair game,” as he so succinctly phrases it.
I Too Have Been Harassed by People Like Joseph Placidi
People on Twitter are constantly tweeting apurposefulwife the most unbelievably disgusting, hateful slurs that would make my dead 99-year old grandmother blush from inside the grave–that seems to be part and parcel to being a free thinker among scores of mentally ill people who sit behind computer screens angry that their worldview is not something they can force on people’s will.
I’ve personally been in apurposefulwife’s shoes. I was relentlessly harassed by a deranged nutcase until I was forced to expose her to the whole world for doing exactly what Mr. Placidi is doing to apurposefulwife. Make no mistake, they hate that we have our own opinions and beliefs, and they want us and our families to suffer–Mr. Placidi most certainly does as you’ll see with your very own eyes in a moment.
Apurposefulwife has the God-given right to express herself and her personal views without fear of harassment and retribution from hateful, nasty, intolerant nutcases lurking the internet–as do I and anyone else that wishes to express his or herself. People like Mr. Placidi claim to believe in that credo as well, but will only believe in it if it shapes and solidifies their worldview, otherwise they bully, abuse, censor, harass, stalk and intimidate.
People like Mr. Placidi must be exposed–their hate and intolerance is very dangerous and must be revealed to the entire world to help keep us safe, aware and well-informed. These people are the most hateful, nasty, unhinged people on the internet and they won’t stop until they can harass and abuse and ultimately silence all people who disagree with them. And Mr. Joseph M. Placidi proves he is no exception.
One Man’s Childish Sockpuppet Vendetta Against a Woman on Twitter
Joseph Placidi has spent a disproportionate amount of time harassing apurposefulwife on Twitter since at least the beginning of this month from his workplace. The reason I’m aware of it is because I keep seeing endless profane and disturbing tweets streaming from the numerous sickening sockpuppets created by Mr. Placidi. He has AT LEAST 10 accounts he has used repeatedly to harass apurposefulwife–again, he has made it very clear this is what he does at his “boring job” on company time because he says harassing women is a “source of entertainment.”
Sockpuppet #1: Mr. Placidi outright admitted he has created at least one specific account to harass apurposefulwife:
And here is the lovely, vibrant, progressively foul language he uses on said sockpuppet account he created and admits he uses specifically for harassment:
So not only does this progressive, tolerant person hate women and religion, he also hates what appears to be effeminate males and gay people. He uses slurs like “faggot” and “pussy” and yet claims he is supportive of groups of people who would undoubtedly be vulnerable to these slurs according to his liberal ideology.
He’s also clearly a pervert projecting his own desires on others e.g. discussing anal sex and playing up his polyamorous fantasies of a strange woman’s husband sleeping with his 4 different wives.
I guess I’m not real clear on why Mr. Placidi is spewing hateful language that he himself would deem is “hate speech.” Does he truly believe in his own liberal ideology, or is he just a liar and a hypocrite?
Furthermore, there is another sockpuppet account that follows the above listed account he created where he tweeted apurposefulwife a vulgar, perverted and revolting direct message that he sent her on Mother’s Day of all days:
Below it shows the above two accounts @mayo_ayla following account @dumbnazibeotch and vice versa. He also made sockpuppet #2 (dumbnazibeotch) using his favorite euphemism “wife with no purpose.” I repeat, both accounts conveniently and coincidentally follow each other and have both tweeted apurposefulwife and have since been blocked by her:
Sockpuppet #3 “@WhiteyAyla” shows Mr. Placidi again personally following and, this time, tweeting back and forth amongst himself from his main account @placidijoe to the @WhiteyAyla account. How convenient once again that he happens to follow and tweet between an account that uses the exact same profile picture and now, as you’ll soon see, has used the same photoshopped pictures he is currently using on several other accounts he has created:
As shown explicitly in the picture above, here he is again “conversing” back and forth between the “@WhiteyAyla” account:
And here he is days earlier tweeting random people openly inciting them to harass:
Once again, in the above picture, he is not only conversing back and forth with yet another one of his sockpuppet accounts @purposefulwaifu you can see he is egging people on to keep the harassment coming! And let’s not forget, her children are also fair game! “Hey, let us have free reign to attack a strange woman’s kids on Twitter,” which you’ll see he does from yet another of his accounts.
This man appears to also be the godfather of a young child. How would he feel if someone posted pictures of his godchild calling him cruel, derogatory names? I’m guessing he probably wouldn’t be too thrilled at all–and lucky for this sick cretin, nobody he singles out for harassment reciprocates with the sorts of twisted psychotic things he does to women like apurposefulwife (ironic the people he constantly declares are “evil and horrible” at least have some decorum and respect when it comes to people’s personal lives and the privacy of their loved ones).
Next is yet ANOTHER account in which he suddenly tweeted out a response to me regarding yet ANOTHER account he made–he had to inject himself “out of the blue” into the following conversation (nobody in the thread mentioned him at all anywhere) with me warning apurposefulwife to “be careful of these unstable people.” He was very offended by me calling him mentally ill and tweeted me from his original account pretending to come to the sockpuppet’s defense.
He was up the night before pathetically tweeting apurposefulwife again from yet another new sockpuppet account #6. By now I’m sure you are finding it nearly impossible to keep track of all his accounts:
He even favorited his own response from another of his sockpuppets in the thread of this conversation:
And here he is again conversing with yet ANOTHER account. As soon as he makes a new account, he magically starts tweeting back and forth and talking to it. Coincidence how he is explicitly connected to all these accounts who incidentally all tweeted me at the exact same time yesterday morning after being radio silent for over 12 hrs–claiming they are part of a big group of different people united in anonymous cowardice trying to remove apurposefulwife from the internet:
Why make 11 accounts to harass someone? Why not be an adult about your differing views and attempt to have a rational conversation? If Mr. Placidi is as open-minded and accepting of other people’s ideas as he claims, he should be able to refrain from acting like a child on Twitter creating accounts specifically to harass people.
These are just 11 profiles of all the accounts Mr. Placidi has made that are solely in the interest of harassing and abusing apurposefulwife. You can see that among nearly all of them, Mr. Placidi has conversed with them back and forth from his main account. Whether he created them or not is immaterial, he was either responsible for and/or complicit in the creation of these accounts to facilitate nonstop harassment against apurposefulwife:
Apurposefulwife has had nothing but clashes with this deplorable, foul-mouthed piece of gutter filth now for weeks on end. He has made it his mission to single out and harass women who do not agree with him and his documented insanity, and it is clearly making him angry and very unstable. As you can see, apurposefulwife has had to block him and report him several times on all of these accounts for apparently being so progressively “tolerant and open-minded.”
The problem with these lunatics is that they think they can get away with harassing people anonymously on the internet. They think they can toy with people’s lives and come out unscathed and live to brag about it to all their friends. “Hey everybody, I harassed someone on the internet that I don’t agree with! I got them shut down! They shouldn’t be allowed to disagree with me or I’ll make their lives a living hell and ruin them forever!”
So much for being accepting of “diversity and inclusion.” These people clearly want to destroy everybody they disagree with, whatever it takes. Pardon me, but that really doesn’t strike me as very “tolerant, loving or openminded” at all.
If you or someone you know is being repeatedly harassed and bullied on the internet, don’t hesitate to start documenting each and every instance of your harassment and abuse right away. Write it down, take screenshots, save emails and be vigilant in protecting yourself and the people you love. The internet’s a scary place. Stay safe and always protect yourself.
