The moment where you cost them more coin than they can profit off you, they'll burn that bridge on their end.
Suits hate digging through trash, so I guess securely locking away few terabytes of garbage should work just fine, fwiw.
Yes, I have a LOT of garbage safely stored, since these <inser_expletive_here> are playing very dirty and don't want to pay, I'll make them pay to the justice. They have to pay one way or the other, and I'll make sure they do.

Anyway, in the meantime I'm keen for them to send another stalker to follow me so I can practice some kickboxing. I REALLY need to do some sports and drain some energy right now. You know, doing healthy activities and stuff.

I used to do this back in the day when I was getting a ton of telemarketer calls.
Telemarketer: Is this <my_name>?
Me: Sorry, who is this?
Telemarketer: I am <Mr. Nice> from <random company>, looking for <me>
Me: Oh, <my_name> died last week.

This worked great; never hard from that company again. And, I did that for all the random calls.
Although, my family was not happy that I was telling people that I was dead.

Now, unfortunately it's all robo calls...

"I don't like myself, how am I supposed to like you?"

"I haven't got time for my wife/husband, how would I have time for you?"

Well, this is MUCH worse than that. I was paying my former ISP for the services they are supposed to offer me and, on one hand, they were allowing a butthurt ex-significant other to eavesdrop my phone calls, my WhatsApp messages, etc., which is a SERIOUS crime here in te EU. Besides that, the SOBs hacked me repeatedly; they even formatted my HDD once (they probably hate me because of my political trend or for being an immigrant or whatever; I really don't give a flying f*uck about their opinion about me or about anything else). The bare truth here is that I was paying a bunch of f*ckers to hack me, and the butthurt ex-whatever was using the information she got from my phone calls to set me traps everywhere. You wouldn't believe it. Anyway, they'll pay, that's for sure.
