Much has been said here on both side of the topic of cyber bullying. All I would like to add is that yes it is a problem, and I have dealt with it as a teacher in the classroom. In this case it was texting and getting a new number didn't help much as it did carry over into the real world. The turn off the computer idea is a good one, but so much of life (especially for the younger generation) takes place online it is tough to cut off an entire aspect of their life like that. Not to mention if they are getting nasty emails and email is needed to complete homework, thanks google.

In my own opinion I think one of the things that makes cyber bullying so bad is that there is an anonymity on the internet and a lack of face to face communication which can lead to people saying things they don't mean or having them taken the wrong way as there was no body language involved.

1. Ignoring doesn't solve a problem it's simply avoiding it and not everyone can ignore things until i was 20 i couldn't at all so it's not really a good solution.

2 and 3 . Again ignoring it is not a good solution for everyone and is a copout way of just ignoring a real problem.

okie


If your answer to bullying is to ignore it you obviously have never have had it impact you

Damn straight. You want to know my secret?



-snip-

but i personally believe it's a copout

-snip-

Couldn't care less what you believe it to be.




Well you obviously have never really been affected by bullying if that's your attitude that or you have little empathy whatever works for you i guess bullying online or offline hurts people mentally to expect everyone to be able to avoid it and not get hurt is very silly and simple minded.

But if that's your answer each to their own on this problem i guess i personally think it's an issue.

It is an issue. In this case, it is an issue that can be easily solved. In the case above yours where the victims are children that may be learning how to handle the internet on their own, I blame the parents. Most kids these days grow up with their cellphones doing most of the parenting, and it is no wonder they have no idea what to do once they discover that the world isn't a fun, happy place all around.

So parents are to blame if someone can't emotionally handle bullying even teenagers? right ok

or just get off the internet and don't socialize with people? If you can't take criticism well you have a lot to worry about your future when you are out in the world working... but of course.. people who are don't cater to your whines are racists, sexist, bigot, -phobes. etc.. right ?





that app is useless. It's nothing more but a notification app. It will monitor and track activity of a child or adult-child ?? then send the notices to the parents so they can censor out the offensive language.

instead of censoring "words" from texts while not just block that person instead ? It's the build in feature of your phone text app anyway? This is just an excuse for these people to make money. Do not use it.

It's an issue, but one that can usually be safely dealt with by teaching children to have thicker skin in general and teaching them techniques to avoid baiting someone or calmly walking away from heated arguments on the internet.

Like real life bullying (
), there are extreme cases where that won't work like cyberstalking, but those are rare. They are largely avoidable by not acting too much like an idiot online though, and parents should teach their children not do "lolcow" behavior.

You don't have to go that far. Just ignore it.


Like in real life ignoring bullying doesn't always work some people just can't and even then it shouldn't be neccesary but people should ignore it if they can.

Turning your pc off or ignoring it just like in irl is just a way to ignore the problem and not fix it imo.


Don't be so stuck on the simple aspect of ignoring it. It has been stated before that this is not an effective way of dealing with bullies.

This whole misunderstanding between you and sasuke is quite interesting.

One one hand Ryu is presenting his partially biased case as the measuring stick for whether ignoring is a solution.

On the other hand Sasuke demonstrates his bias about mental illness in his unwillingness to consider that other human beings may have a harder time when interacting socially with others.

I may have gone off a bit far not considering his views on it and misunderstanding him well it's hard not to when the topic is important to you having been bullied online and offline and how some people I have met have taken their lives due to it.

I certainly have a bias
