But bullys follow you if there on youtube videos its easy to avoid but some bullys just follow you.

I know a girl who keeps making new accounts because people keep tracking her down and picking on her and she is bullied irl also (apparently i don't know her in person but i believe her) People do this kind of shit and its not fun.

Esspecialy if your on a social game or just a game and you constantly have someone bullying you it's not something you can escape from i mean it is but giving up something you love to escape bullying is not fair and disgusting.


By not being able to walk away from, I mean the type of online bullying that can even cross with your offline life, like texting and social networks. There have been multiple accounts of teenage suicide in such situations. The type that follows you around the net and possibly even your life offline.

I've been through a form of online bullying, not the worst certainly. I had some jackasses go to such lengths that they hunted down my facebook through a friend's, managed to somehow get my location, threatened me with anonymous messages, and used my picture in multiple places to ridicule me for months. One of them somehow even got my fucking phone number. Lord knows I have no fucking clue how, but I imagine it had to do with my resume on LinkedIn. I have since taken all my shit down and locked up my facebook. It wasn't a joke. It wasn't just some stupid weirdo in pms I could ignore or some loser just making topics flaming me. People don't get what online bullying can spiral into. All it takes is one stupidly persistent asswipe.

Sure, it's no big deal to me now. That's the thing though, bullying focuses more on the young and ill prepared. I was mentally beaten down by that event (my illness [undiagnosed at the time] really didn't help) and I was forced to change a lot of things, particularly my mindset. So if you asked if that bother me now, the answer would be of course, no. As it would be for most adults. I don't regret it happening. It really forced me to fortify how I view myself and my body image. So yeah, there's that.

Online bullying is just as bad as physical bullying and in many cases can be worse.

Sometimes mental scars are deeper and more painful than physical wounds.


It certainly can be. Bullying of any type isn't for the strong. People physically bully the physically weak and psychologically bully the mentally weak. That's just how it is and the type they target.



And all it takes is for that mentally weak person to nearly stab the bully in the throat before they notice there in the wrong true story guy never bothered me again ^_^

If only I could have stabbed mine...

Nah jk, I wouldn't. It worked out as a benefit to me anyway (not like I was suicidal or anything), but it doesn't mean it's not problematic for other and even less prepared kids/teens.

Someone ever did that to my kids I wouldn't stab them, no that be silly!

I'd light a bitch on fire.

Legitimate online bullying is something you can't walk away from. It follows you. It's not some guy in a game lobby you won't see again in the next 10 minutes. It's not a troll on a stupid forum.

No one seems to get the difference between a bully and a troll.

I once had a guy from CR add me, I unfortunately trusted him with my skype info, which was my first and foremost mistake, that I will not repeat again, only to have him hassle me about seeing his wiener, when I said repeatedly that I'd added him under the condition that we wouldn't talk about that kind of shit. I'll keep it PG-13, obviously, but it was pretty gross. It's like, no son, I don't want to see that.

It's my fault anyway because I added him, but who does that? I mean I personally don't give a shit if someone thinks I'm pretty or not but if you're gonna add me for my appearance and on top of that ask me to see… ick… I really, really don't find that to be trustworthy, it just makes you look kind of like a selfish ass… sorry…

One of the many reasons I had to stop listing my Skype publicly. On literally every site I used. It's like when I made the mistake of putting my kik up on my Facebook thinking that old friends could add me, but instead a bunch of weird men I don't know did.

Both are fucking terrible. Especially for anyone who's too young or inexperienced to know how to deal with the online stuff or how to handle themselves physically in person. Then there's the people who just mentally are timid, or a little fragile, and who might not ever be able to truly deal with the severe emotional onslaught of constant bullying. Its all to easy for someone to be driven to feelings of real despair when bullying goes too far.

That vicious shit some people get off on really pisses me off.

He claimed to be a cammer (online sex worker, basically) from somewhere in Europe, I think that inflated the creep factor about ten times because that's one of the first things he TOLD me, he tried to be coy about it, I didn't understand, so then he just came out and said it. That should've been red flag number one to block his ass, but I kept on, relying on my faith in humanity that he couldn't be that bad. I mean, sex workers are people too!

I ignored the warning signs at first. But then he tried getting all chummy, saying that he wouldn't "make me pay" for his "services", as if I asked for them, because he found me "attractive". What. the. Actual. Hell. I mean, dude was acting like I was a privileged lil snowflake who "wanted" to see that shit. That's so repulsive. Makes my skin crawl.

And I doubt now in hindsight that I'm the only one he tried to solicit this kind of attention from. He probably pulled this on other girls. Even though I was an adult at the time, albeit barely, I don't think I deserved that kind of unwanted attention. It's one thing for a guy to like my appearance, say I am pretty or cute, to compliment me, but it's another for him to completely go off the edge and ask for favors like THAT. And the thing is, I don't do anything that suggests promiscuously in my pictures, I don't do anything to much solicit that kind of male attention, sometimes I just end up with it on my plate and it freaks me out. This guy had to be the most disturbed one I've dealt with thus far, though. The only person that trumps him is this middle school stalker I had who remembers me and constantly tries to add me on Facebook despite the fact that I have told him to FUCK OFF, and that he's gross and I don't want him near me. I have a dude in my life who I considerably like and I don't want any creeps getting up on me regardless of whether I'm single or not. Sometimes I wish I was just left alone. In my eyes I'm not that good looking or worthy of this kind of attention.

I mean, I'm pretty sure it goes against CR's policy to ask for such favors, but since it happened on Skype, I couldn't necessarily report him on CR for what was done, the jurisdiction doesn't transfer over. I wish I could have made a warning post in the forums about him, but I was too scared to come out and admit what'd happened, especially because the circumstances make it seem like it's pretty much partially my fault, not to say it isn't, but that doesn't absolve the harasser of guilt and responsibility.

I'm kind of freaked out now though, that i wasn't the only one who might've dealt with him.

CR ain't the place for dirty business, keep your private life private. And certainly don't go looking to solicit nsfw favors on a site like this…

he wasn't as scummy at first, he seemed a little more innocent albeit a bit weird when it started, but by the end, only one or two days after, my skin was fucking CRAWLING. Never again.

Every time I get a dubious Skype request that doesn't have a clear profile picture or recognizable indicator that it's someone I know, I immediately hide the convo and worse case scenario block the requester. It could be him. It could be another person with a similar objective. He could've spread my username to his cohorts so they could try and solicit similar favors. Even a few days ago, I got a request from some weirdo with a profile pic of a half naked woman with "ilovegirls[series of numbers"] as the user. Whyyyyyy??!!!!

It's like, way to worsen my paranoia when it comes to people. Way to worsen it, fuckboy. I don't often use that term, it's one of those annoying tumblresque buzzwords, but nah, this guy was definitely worthy of that title.

Yeah, but I think everyone knows that online bullying is referring to cyberbullying.

I have had people in Youtube and here in CR sending me nasty messages just because they didn't like my opinion I just laugh at these types of people and sometimes even play along just for fun. They tried to "hurt" me with petty insults while I just kept on laughing. Highly amusing, I don't approve of bullies of course but if someone bullies me I bully them back if I'm in the mood for nonsense.

I have a thick skin, I've been never bullied but only because I defended myself. I remember in freshman year some girls tried to make fun of me and instead of staying quiet and letting them continue, I faced them and told them that if they had anything to say they should say it to my face and if they had a problem with me I didn't mind searching for a solution with my fists and proceeded to show them my fists which were all full of spiky rings. To tell the truth, I was trembling on the inside because I have never fought with anyone but I knew that if I didn't speak for myself nobody else would.

They stopped, and the girls even tried to be friendly afterwards. This showed me that bullies are cowards and they only go after the people they think are weak.

However, I realize that not everyone is like me and some people get it worse so I don't approve of any kind of bullying, online included. It is very sad that some people have fun by hurting others.

I wouldn't be so quick to taboo online bullying like that, because in most cases it's someone the victim knows at school and they are just taking the bullying to a new level by harrassing you online. Gather all the evidence and send screenshots to the police, they take it very seriously these days.

Many people would say violence isn't the answer, but I say bullies just need to be put in their place walk up to them and lay them out. Let your fists do the talking that's the only thing bullies will listen to.

Its a problem of people being to bitch-made to stand up for others. If more people would stand up for those who are too scared to fight for themselves we wouldn't have a problem.

That's a messed up encounter you had there. Though now you've learned from it and that's a good thing. No reason to blame yourself or be paranoid about everyone you encounter. I mean there's scumbags all over the damn internet, that's well known, just keep it in the back of your mind when someone new approaches you. Because hey you never know.

It is kind of unsettling that people like that are around on CR considering that there's a lot of underage folks on here.

It's really not that at all.
If they are too bitch
think about the person who's doing the bullying AND is being bullied
bitches right?
