Cyber-Bullying? 2010-08-12 21:47:23


I mean i hear all this bullshit about cyber bullying. But have you ever seen someone or known someone who actually was being cyber bullied the way the media makes it look like?

Me and two friends were playing Animal Crossing: Wild World over Wi-Fi in 3rd Grade and my friend starts making fun of this dumb kid that goes to our school. The next day I tell my OTHER friend about it (totally unrelated to the previous day) and for whatever reason he decides to go tell the kid my friend was making fun of what he said, THEN he goes crying to the principal saying he got cyber bullied.

So yeah. That's as close as I've seen to a sad excuse for cyber bullying in my life so far.

I actually do. There was this girl in my sister's grade who was hated by pretty much everybody so at one point, there was this whole facebook trend of bashing her and creating hate groups about her.

However, despite that, I don't consider cyber bullying to be any different from regular bullying and that's been going on since the beginning of humanity. Different medium, same old story.

Any cyber bullying can be countered with trolling, as that is essentially what they're doing. Fight fire with fire

I think people who take cyber bullying seriously are hilarious. I mean normal bullying fair enough, some kids get the shit kicked out of them, get their stuff stolen, that's a bad problem. When it's just a prick texting you "LOL UR A FAGET" getting really upset about it is pointless.

This sort of reaction always puzzled and irritated me. Suspended for something outside of school? Overreacting by suspending your students doesn't really show that you're much of an adult.

About a month or so, some guy pretended to be a student at my school and started adding other students. It turns out it was a fake account and he was just screwing with people. Despite the fact that this is something that can be fixed via the block button (and really, shouldn't people know intuitively that adding people you don't know could end badly?), the school sent out an email to all of the students' parents warning them of this guy like prank phone calls and a few generic insults were the end of the world.

Internet iz srs bisness, I guess.

I've never seen anyone cyber bullied. I think it's pretty stupid to take someone's word on the internet seriously anyway.

At my school people get cyber bullied all the time because they are idiots, and while people might think it isn't a serious issue it's actually pretty bad because a lot of people are just...idiots.

This is partially true. Essentially it's kind of the same. However, firstly bullying stops when social events end, so you can go hom after school and probably the bullying will end till next school day. But that's when cyber bullying starts, because the internet is always present. Secondly, the internet has anonymity and can provide a huge social network. Essentially the bully can get a lot of 'friends' to join in on the bullying. And where you can't bully all too public in school, the internet provides means to step the bullying up, like creating hatesites, posting false information, accessing e-mail addresses, posting embarassing pics and chat sessions and so on. If a person has enough malice in him/her, he could photoshop a girl in a very pornographic picture and send it all around her social network advertising her as a whore and some people might just buy that. He might just have, probably unknowingly, ruined the reputation, career and life of an innocent person. Because later, some people might be reluctant to hire her, because she has 'loose morals'.

What about e-mail addresses, which can also be made for free or hate sites or youtube or...
Internet has a lot of different ways for cyberbullying than just a facebook comments like "Lol, u suck". Really, like I said earlier, if done with enough bad intention you can break a person and smut his whole reputation with one click.

In Belgium, thy made a movie about cyberbullying: Ben X. But then again it is just a movie, so it's probably a bit extreme. But it does show the possibilities. But I must admit, I know no case personally, only the stories.

I've never really come into contact with anyone that I know that has been cyber bullied. So I wouldn't know, but I can guess it's pretty harsh, and from what I've heard it doesn't seem to be much different from actual physucal bullying ):
