Online Harassment

I am being harassed by someone online, whose identity I do not know, since April this year. I have reported it to the police as well as to IMDB support however this person is still at it. They have now taken to spreading lies and getting my credits erased as IMDB support finally stopped them from editing my bio (they were posting all kinds of things on it). This person apparently also started their own thread here and is going by the name of "anton". The thread is called "actress with fake credits". Please do not listen to this person and help me block them from accessing my profile. You are welcome to call the Irish Police (Garda) and verify that I have a large file on this person's actions. If there is anything you can do to keep my career safe from this person, please do so. Ive been fighting this battle on IMDB for months.

Adam: If IMDb had followed that policy from the start, it would never have had pages for people such as Alfred Hitchcock, Walt Disney, Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles, Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart, and John Wayne, all of whom died before IMDb was founded.

Even if you only wanted to allow living people to control their own pages, you have to take into consideration that some people have important aspects of their lives that should be included, but that they would not want to include on their IMDb pages if they had control of them. (See the biographical trivia pages of Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, for example.)

True, however if IMDB is imformed of harassment, they should do more to stop it.

Katarzyna: I recommend that you address your concerns in the other thread at https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/actress-with-fake-credits, where you have already posted, in order to get the correct credits restored.

If you provide evidence, in the form of screen shots of your name shown on screen (for the work where you were credited) or of yourself clearly visible and recognizable in the film/TV show (for the work where you were uncredited), you should be able to have your entries restored to IMDb.

I hope this helps.

Thank you, the issue is that I do not have copies of the films. Id happily Screenshot myself if I could. But the fact also stands that I did get paid for these roles and was filmed in them.. whether or not it ended up in the edit I am not sure as I haven't seen the films. I am sure most actresses are in the same boat and do not watch everything they do. I can prove that I am being harassed over and over again VERY easily though.

Nobody owns the IMDb name page about him/her, just as nobody owns the Wikipedia article about him/her. The page is not an account. A person can control some of the details on "his"/"her" page but only the vanity aspects and contact information aspects of it.

Furthermore, IMDb neither ever was obligated to allow people to control any aspects of the pages about them nor is obligated to allow such a thing in perpetuity. IMDbPro incorporates a luxury service that helps satisfy people who are or desired to be immersed in the motion picture entertainment industry/scholarship.

if you are alive you should control your own page I never said about the dead 
So if Phil Spector requests to have the following item removed from his biographical page at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0817489/bio, should IMDb remove it?
On February 3, 2003, he was arrested and charged with first-degree murder after Lana Clarkson was shot to death in his home in Alhambra, CA. In April 2007 he went on trial in Los Angeles. On April 13, 2009, he was convicted of second-degree murder. On May 29 he was sentenced to 19 years to life in prison (he will not be eligible for parole until 2028, when he'll be 88 years old. If he doesn't get parole then, by California law his sentence will become a life term). He is serving his sentence at the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison in Corcoran. He was also ordered to pay $16,800 in funeral expenses and more than $9,700 to a state victim's assistance fund.
I would not support allowing people to control the IMDb pages about themselves since some people would omit significant relevant information or just make up false information.

I have. Over and over and over. I dont understand why I have to keep changing it back repeatedly and dealing with this for hours every week trying to clear my name and the information. Someone is harassing me but yet IMDB is allowing it to continue.

Previous thread was closed to comments by an employee. So I am responding here, again. I HAVE contacted support about this issue NUMEROUS times. Instead of helping ME you are helping my attacker. Why is IMDB siding with someone that has been harassing me for 6 months on all kinds of platforms? There is no support number so all I have is email and it takes days receive a response and Im obviously not getting anywhere even with that. This has been ongoing and IMDB is allowing it to continue. Why?

The police are in the process of contacting them. And yes, I do have evidence and a lot of it but this is public here and Im being careful what I post. Again, just from the email to my agent you can see intended harm. And even just from the way the first post was posted. Very insulting and trying to ruin my credibility in general.
