** There's also the possibility that whoever initiated the curse (the gods, some witch, Chtulu, whatever) made "it" appear very far away from the original person, or after a time delay. Would allow a chain to build up before "it" starts to kill people, and thus the others in the chain to begin to figure out whats happening before it reaches them. Given enough people in the chain and enough time, people would figure it out.

** Even worse, we find out [[spoiler:it kills Greg while taking the form of his mother. Really adds an extra layer of horror to that last tearful phone call Anne gives to her dad, doesn't it?]]

**It's not stupid. It probably handled things a bit differently back then, maybe letting them live long enough to spread it unknowingly, or maybe it had a completely different ruleset, or maybe it's only acting the way it does now for kicks. Just like it says on the main page, straight from the creator's mouth, whatever answer is the most scary or unnerving, that's the correct one.

** However, if the theory of rape does hold up, [[ItGetsWorse it gets a whole lot worse]]. What if raping more than one victim creates a branch, thus spawning more of "it", to chase down victims. Who's to say this isn't possible? Say, Serial Rapist A rapes Victims A, B, and C, and now It A chases Victim A until they find a new victim to extend the chain, while Victim B is chased until they find a new Victim B, and so on. In other words, instead of being a single victim, a serial rapist would end up branching them up to make the curse worse...

** There's hope! WordOfGod says any sort of sexual act counts as long as ''both parties'' consider it to be sex. Many people don't consider rape to be sex, but rather an act of violence -- so if the victim falls into that school of thought, It stays with the rapist. [[LaserGuidedKarma Ah, karma.]]

* How did the ''very first'' victim of It know/learn exactly what they are dealing with, and how to combat it? I doubt It would sit them down and talk with them about the rules. Not to mention the issues with transportation as discussed down below. However It came to be, and unless the victim knew what was happening, It would kill that first, single victim before they knew to have sex with another person, and have to somehow start an entirely new chain. ''Again''. Until someone somehow finally figured out the rules and extended the chain.
