Over the past couple of years a website I use has been repeatedly spammed with inappropriate material by a particular user, and this person has occasionally specifically targeted me or one of my friends. It started out with them making hundreds of posts of gibberish, and then moved on to sending sexual or threatening messages to individual users, some of whom I know were young teens at the time. I have evidence that this person is in Los Angeles, and I have an email address they used to use (they spammed me directly, we got through the fake email address and got their internet access blocked, but now they appear to be back on a different provider), but don't know their current internet or email providers. The site they're on blocks user's email addresses from view unless they specifically allow them to be shown, so I can't get it from there. The moderators of the site in question have repeatedly proven useless - I had to send multiple complaint emails per day to them to get them to remove the last batch of spam, and this time I did the same thing and nothing was done at all. Does anyone know if it's possible for me to report this to the proper legal authorities, and if so, where?
(Not sure if I put this in the right category, sorry if I didn't.)
