You got stalkermail!

YOKOHAMA--A 41-year-old woman in Ota, Gunma Prefecture, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of violating the Antistalking Law by continuously sending e-mails to leading trampolinist Daisuke Nakata asking him to become her boyfriend, police said.

According to the police, former teacher Yuko Osawa ignored a previous warning from the police to stop stalking Nakata, and sent 11 e-mails to him from July 17 to Nov. 6. The e-mails included messages urging him to drop charges against her.

Nakata, 33, won the All Japan Trampoline Championships for seven consecutive years from 1995 to 2001.

From around 2000, Osawa attended every tournament held in Japan and overseas that Nakata participated in, and also went to the places he stayed during each competition. She allegedly made various requests to him, including asking him to marry her.

Got the inevitable "friend request" on Facebook a few weeks back: "Stalky McNew-surname would like you to be her friend." Er, sure- why not have my gmail address and a list of places where I change trains as well?

I have to admire the woman's boundless optimism when it comes to Dan-stalker relations. Don't think I'll be clicking that "accept" button though.
