Odd Situation Advice?

Hello!
I'd like some advice... End of November I ordered a commission with a due date of Xmas (last year), it was never completed, and multiple dates were set. I asked the artist for an update in June, and to provide a wip or a refund, they refused both and rushed my commission, admitting to doing so as well. They refused to do all the fixes, and eventually got a mutual friend involved who gave them money to give me a refund, which was confusing and not OK with me at all. (The mutual tried to refund me directly themselves and I said no)
But I got a partial and the rushed 'wip' theyre now saying it is. (saying the image was never completed and thats why it was 'rushed' when they told me it was finished and they rushed it on purpose)

I was going to post them to AB, but I got the image and the partial so I agreed not to. But they insisted I unfollow their twitter accounts, which I was going to do, but they keep venting and ranting about me there, and I capped stuff for an AB post on their attitude alone. They mention me by name on Twitter, and I got some caps of the callouts before I was blocked.

They are now doing it on FA, for the sole purpose that I can see it. And getting the mutual friend involved, to message me on their behalf.

I like their art, and even though their attitude and actions are something lacking, I still wish to see the art, and screencap the posts theyre making for proof for an AB post.

The journals Im screencapping are not callouts with my name directly, but worded to me, and dragging me through the dirt, so to speak. Theyve called me out by name on Twitter, and I know they are calling me out via IM/notes as people have come to me about the situation.

Should I continue to watch their FA and compile evidence? (Is there a point to this as I got a partial refund, but their attitude was atrocious) or should I unwatch and let them fizzle out on the callout posting?

EDIT I seem to have misworded. They do not want me watching their FA and thats what the journals are about. I like their art and wanted to continue to view it (I havent faved or commented on anything), and continue to cap the journals about me for evidence.

Theyve left another journal about me, as I feared they'd continue the drama if I posted anything. But people have noted/discorded me over this and I dont want that.

Im going to write up a beware and think on it, as I thought people would just say unwatch them and ignore it. But I guess not? The latest journal again is about me needing to unwatch them but, and how 'I said I would'.... but I didnt? I only meant the Twitters. There's now rule or law against following someone, plus they keep writing about me so Im capping it. They claim I'm stalking them, so.. /:

I think I'm watching the person in question and I think it's worth writing the beware and posting it.

While part of this is a personal issue, it also stems from what should have been a professional transaction, and if they cannot conduct themselves in a mature manner with someone who was both a friend and a client?

A client who says the wrong thing to set this person off might get this same treatment. It's not fair to anyone, and it's for the best that they're properly exposed for how they're acting.

I had them on my 'to commission' list for the future but reading up on this and noting the level of pettiness on the journals? IRL delays aside, this is just extremely undesirable behavior to potentially deal with, as a client.

Edit: Just as an additional side note, if it was just one journal none of the twitter nonsense, it'd be something you should leave for dead.

But as someone on the outside of this situation that makes 3 journals that I've seen regarding this subject and they really need to let it go.

To be honest, the way they're behaving by not dropping the matter as agreed on, they really need to be warned about. It goes to show that they don't respect agreed terms at all.
