Break-ups can be tough, but jilted exes become that much more volatile in the Internet age. After his girlfriend broke off their relationship in 2009, a 38-year-old British man bombarded his ex online in the ensuing months, getting arrested and receiving a lifetime restraining order after he posted a series of blog posts "warning all men" and detailing his account of their separation. Two months later, the Brit was slapped in cuffs again after he called the woman a "liar" and "a sociopath" on a website, yet he didn't learn from even his second arrest. According to the Telegraph newspaper, the obsessive ex took to the web once again this year, setting up a new website telling of his court appearances, and in March was sentenced to 18 weeks in an English jail.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I hang on to my tech goodies for good reason.
