Mark Zuckerberg -- I Fear My Facebook Stalker

2/8/2011 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Zuckerberg claims he's being stalked by a man who's been sending him creepy messages through Facebook and threatening his safety ... TMZ has learned.

Mark Zuckerberg Stalker

Zuckerberg has obtained a restraining order against 31-year-old Pradeep Manukonda -- after Mark filed legal papers claiming the guy has tried to "follow, surveil and contact Mr. Zuckerberg using language threatening his personal safety" ... and the safety of his girlfriend and his sister.

Law enforcement sources tell us Pradeep had gone to several Facebook offices in Palo Alto attempting to contact Mark to ask for money for his financially-strapped family.

According to the legal docs, Facebook security also intercepted Pradeep at Mark's home on January 24 just as he was about to walk up the front steps.

Cops gave Pradeep a verbal warning -- but Mark claims the guy has continued to try to contact him through the mail ... even sending flowers to his home with a hand-written letter on January 28. 

In one of his Facebook messages to Mark, Pradeep writes, "please help me, then I am ready to die for you." He continues, "Please understand my pain."

The judge has ordered Pradeep to stay at least 300 yards away from Mark, his sister Randi and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan pending a hearing later this month.

If there is a god... he will send every kook in the universe to terrorize MZ for the rest of eternity.

Nothing we make me happier than to see MZ get his final reward from some facebook kook that HE created.

The rich and famous are vulnerable to so-called "organized gang stalking." If Mark Zuckerberg happens to see this post: This veteran journalist and victim of government-sponsored gang stalking calls his attention to this urgent message I posted today on the White House Facebook page:

URGENT TO POTUS - (pls. fwd. ASAP) Veteran journalist, many 1,000s others extrajudicially persecuted by fusion center/mil contractor- backed Gestapo-like "gang stalking" network and precision-targeted U.S. cell mast mounted microwave weapon system - a silent slow-kill genocide. Please read lede article/links therein at and ACT -- before more innocent Americans are tortured and destroyed. READERS: MAKE THIS VIRAL.

Surround yourself and those close to you with every possible armed bodyguard. The law moves slowly and mysteriously at times and in favor of the deranged a lot of times.

This punk is a **** who stole his friends' concept, made millions collecting information of millions of others, and releasing that information whenever it fit his newest business model, and now he is being stalked by someone on Facebook? That's just Karma there.

From Time Magazine regarding contact info being available:

"But the Facebook creators seem shaped more by the belief that transparency and sharing can be for the common good. “Why wouldn’t you want to share?” Zuckerberg asks. “Why wouldn’t you want to be open unless you’ve got something to hide?"

Hmmm. Why indeed.
