    some "girl" has been IMing my roommate for about 6 months now. she knows too much about him and his friends...so at first we thought it was a joke, but after 6 months, we're just getting plain freaked out. "she" seems to have serious issues. how the hell can we find out who this person is? i've tried sniffing the IP and got a match to a library computer down at UT Austin. that only helps so much, though. does anyone know methods of getting more information?

    sure, he could just block her, but we really want to know who the hell this is.

    she uses multiple names...they change every time we ask her name. we tried meeting, but she never showed. it's very...very, weird.

    Stop talking to her, if she's that serious she may eventually show in person if all other avenues are cut-off.

    I just allow people on my buddylist to IM me...keeps the weirdos away. If they want to IM, they have to email me his/her screen name first.

    What I used to do was go on AIM and make up random names and mess with my friends. I still do it sometimes. I'll get all personal and they'll be like who is this. Then I'll get an IM on my normal screen name asking if I IMed them earlier, and I'll be like "No". Or I'll pretend to be a perv looking for cyber for some of my female buddies and freak them out. Probably another friend messing with you.
