Cyberstalked! was created and is maintained by Cynthia Armistead. All original material on this domain is copyright 1996–2012 Cynthia Armistead unless otherwise noted.
This site began on Cynthia’s MindSpring web site, then moved with the rest of her material to her main personal site, TechnoMom.com. Cynthia split her site up into separate sites in early 2006, and the internet safety material acquired its own home and a blog here at CyberStalked.org.
The site originally began as a place to refute the defamation spread across the internet by Richard Hillyard. Sixteen years later, it continues to educate people about to Hillyard’s character and criminal convictions, and it continues to stand as a response to the lies Hillyard is still publishing about Cynthia and her family. It has grown far, far bigger than a story about one little cowardly criminal’s inexplicable obsession with people who’d never heard of that felon before he targeted them. Over time, it has become a resource for many people who find encouragement in knowing that they aren’t alone as they face harassment and stalking, that there are things they can do, and that they do not have to give up their online presence. It has given people hope.
Cynthia was a technical writer who had just begun a health-related leave of absence from MindSpring Enterprises when Hillyard’s original attacks began in the summer of 1996. As of this 2012 update, she’s disabled but pursuing vocational rehabilitation. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia near her daughter Katie. She maintains several other web sites, dabbles in needlework design and is learning to play the ukulele.
