65k phone calls

AP reports:
AMSTERDAM (AP) — Dutch prosecutors are charging a 42-year-old woman with stalking after she allegedly called her ex-boyfriend 65,000 times in the past year.

The 62-year-old victim from The Hague filed a police complaint in August due to the persistent phone calls. Police arrested the suspected stalker Monday, seizing several cell phones and computers from her home in Rotterdam.

Hague prosecution spokeswoman Nicolette Stoel said Thursday the woman argued to judges at a preliminary hearing she had a relationship with the man and the number of calls she placed to him wasn't excessive. The man denied they had a relationship.

The court ordered her not to contact him again.
This is obviously a clear-cut case of harassment by a crazy woman, and an example of a legitimate restraining order. Right? No.

The man should have been able to block her phone number after a few dozen calls. How did it ever get to 65k calls? That is over 100 calls a day. There must be more to the story.
