A few days back, I had an issue with a guy and this blew out of proportion on Facebook and twitter. Then after, I was normal and had a good weekend. All of a sudden today morning, I woke up with 68 missed calls and I started wondering who are these trying to reach me, and then I opened “Whatsapp” to see porn images and videos shared by few numbers, and just plain ‘Hi’ from certain numbers.
It hit me on my head – I was able to outline why this is happening connecting the dots. I first called a friend with whom I commute most of the day and informed him with tears. He convinced me to calm down and promised to meet me in an hour.
He picked a few calls, most of them ran away hearing a male voice. One, just one answered him. My friend convinced him first that his identity will not be disclosed, and politely asked him how he received my number. He told he got it through a website – peperonity.
Peperonity – A porn website, where it gives you chat facility with an unknown to talk fetish. Looks like this guy whom I suspect initiates a chat with every possible guy and gives my number to talk.
I never knew such website exists, and oh boy, I didn’t expect so many guys use this site to talk. I ignored calls, I deleted WhatsApp and was about to change my number. Only thing that hit me hard – If I change my number, the guy behind the whole scene would win.
What did I learn?
People on Facebook – will like/Comment/Share at extreme cases and move on. You will suffer. So don’t take anything to Facebook at any cost
Friends – Few were kidding for instantly turning famous all of a sudden, oh whoa fan base, they said – I am much more angrier on these fellas than the guy who did
Cyber complaint they said, How to move forward – none said
I then thought, who are these guys calling me? – Creepy idiots whose dick hardens when they are in crowded buses. Guys who are sex starving. What will they do to the extreme? – I picked the calls and said “My number is misused, I have complained to the cyber cell”
Few didn’t understand ‘cyber’ so I replaced with the term “Police”
Few cut the call right away
Few were generous enough to Sorry
One guy was extremely generous stating, If I can be of any help please tell me – I said him to reply back to the guy who chats “Karma is a bitch, it will fuck you”
My key take away list:
Complains to cyber cell online – is a myth, it doesn’t work at all.
If you want to complaint you will have to reach “Commissioner office” located at Vepery with all the evidences and proofs
I had to refrain because my father is against and my few real friends didn’t allow me to take this up on my sleeve
I FILTERED FRIENDS – the replies of “Oh”, “Oh My God”, “Let me know what happened then”, “Are you still getting calls” – Guys! I tell you, why on Earth did I even meet you folks and befriended.
One guy – surfed through and literally kept fishing for the details – Lots of Love, Thank you!
Another colleague – Tried to make it a fun event for his gang to burst out laughing, I stayed quiet and with what my face express the gang was able to make out and chose not to laugh. – Lots of Love, again! Will I get another chance to understand you better ?
My close friend (?) – “You blow things out of proportion and now, am afraid of you. I am running away from you, I don’t want to talk anymore” – God Bless You.
Like those who say the woman’s dress was the reason behind the rape; many pointed me for being aggressive (?) on Facebook. – Slowwww claps and a big THANK YOU!
Again! – be it salis or any other who did such a nasty act – KARMA IS A BITCH; YOU’LL BE FUCKED.
I am Kavipriya Moorthy, author of a chick-lit genre novel “I don’t wear Sunscreen.”
I followed the trend and as per the advice I received from a few authors I know I sent my book to reviews.
“Word of Mouth”, “Google” and “seeing posts on FB” – I got to list down few reviewers.
Book Reviewers — Those who are well-read, who have a blog where they post a review about a book with details and rating the book out of 5 mostly. They help in getting the book a reach to an extent, where any reader would go through this review and decide whether to buy the book or not. Just like Movie reviews.
Authors – They send a free copy, or if the book reviewer has a domain registered, they can also tag a price for their reviews.
Me – Debut author, who is *desperate* to let the book reach fellow readers, sent free books to a few reviewers. One such guy is Salis Afaque. His blog – http://www.salisonline.in
Book Released – July 13th
Book was sent to Salis on – August 1st
First follow up – Sept 1st week for which he replied the review will be posted by month end
My publishers will give me only bulk copies on a count of 30 or more, I have to pay the printing cost for the same which is about 2500 INR. Since I spent enough already, I refrained and politely asked him to send the book back. (Few state this is wrong – am not sure. But I didn’t want my book resting on a shelf forever but read by a reviewer for that matter)
He asked my address and phone number to send my book back. I gave him the details and said I will pay for the courier.
Sept 22nd – I received the book, and he blocked me on Facebook
Sept 23rd – Random guys ping me on Whatsapp stating they saw a post with my number.
