What to do about an unpleasant person who keeps seeking me out on the internet / texting / emailing but who isn't breaking the law?

This is related to my last question about my mom. Her abusive, criminal ex-boyfriend won't quit contacting me and my husband via email, text messages, searching out old myspace profiles and other accounts we have. The only time it stopped recently is when he went to jail for a couple of weeks.
We have his phone number blocked from our cells after he wouldn't stop texting us (just calling us dirty names, texting nonsense like pictures of my mom). I blocked him from my facebook abs blocked his email from my gmail account (that just sends his emails to the trash and anytime I go to my trash I see that he is still emailing me). Just the other day he found my old myspace account and tried to friend me. I just deleted the entire account since I don't use it.
I am getting frustrated and this is causing me anxiety even though there are no threats in any of his messages. He had quite the criminal history, however, and I'm getting sick of feeling unsafe and concerned everytime he tries something new to contact us. Just tonight my husband was texted a invite to loopt from this guys number.
It makes me feel sick with stress to have to deal with this. I worry about him finding out where we live. I've never met the guy and he lives in a different state but again he isn't the most stable person. I thougt if we ignored him and didn't respond he would leave us alone but that isn't working (yet?).
Does anyone have any advice on how to approach this situation? I don't want to change my number and email, and I can't stop worrying what he's gonna do next.
