Yes, it appears it would.

Harassment Act 1997

This Act was primarily created to provide protection against stalkers, but it has been used in other ways.

Under this Act, it is now an offence for a person to pursue a course of action which amounts to harassment of another individual, and that they know or ought to know amounts to harassment. Under this act the definition of harassment is behavior which causes alarm or distress. This Act provides for a jail sentence of up to six months or a fine. There are also a variety of civil remedies that can be used including awarding of damages, and restraining orders backed by the power of arrest.

'Fraid it's Illegal.

lol a harassment complaint was made against me once by a girl

You can make one against someone if you are distressed by what they do etc

I made on back to spite her now if either one of us contacts the other we can call the police on each other..... good way to end a relationship!

Well I wouldn't say I was stalking anyone but from what I know about the law etc regarding this, you just gotta make sure they don't know you are the one doing it, that is pretty much the only way to cover yourself, also don't do anything that someone could misconstrued as hostile.

I was stalked by my ex boyfriend and it isnt nice for anyone to go through. anyone that actually does it is a loser and just wanting to scare someone. Dont know why people are sad enough to do it. They need to get a life!!

Excuse me, are you on this planet? I am not going to help you stalk someone. You are very sad individual if you have nothing better to do. Stalking people isnt a joke. You need to grow up and get a life.

Where did you save a weeks worth of shat?

I think BG1 has a point, I am sure the distress is caused by knowing someone is stalking you, so by learning how not to be discovered is an admirable and noble thing to do. :)
