I'm not completely solid on how the term butthurt is used, because the only times I've seen it used were by people being incredibly juvenile so I have a hard time taking anyone seriously when they use it.

However, I learned not to be offended by certain people from real life, not the internet. When I was young and full of energy I used to think we should argue about everything that we thought and felt, much to the annoyance of at least one parent. Then I started meeting what I'd like to term RL trolls, who literally would approach you to have an argument in which no one would be satisfied at the end.

Summary: Don't feed the trolls. They can play with each other well enough without you wasting your time.

The things that you mentioned seem to stem from identity theft and a security breach.If you write political blogs you use cyber security measures that a god would envy .I don't know if I would term some of these acts as bullying as they do represent criminal acts.My friend was just "swatted" because of an anonymous tip about a man with a gun.He doesn't own one.

I do agree they are criminal, but they happen when people take things too far.

Teens are more exposed. They are more likely to let personal information slip. But, no website is truly secure.

I wouldn't let it get to you because many people on here are developmentally immature and some are just role playing.There's several on here that are so approval and attention starved that they will say anything to solicit a response. I would agree that the overt racism displayed by some members of the CR forums is more troubling because they are totally oblivious to the fact that what they're saying is ridiculously racist.It's not just naive chic or politically incorrect its just being a bigot..I'm surprised that the moderators tolerate some of it ,but then again in fairness I don't know how much they effectively curtail.


If they banned every immature person here that show signs of bigotry CR would go bankrupt.Maybe thats why they tolerate lesser cases of bigotry and racism. But i know...getting angry about these subjects is really tiring in long run. I mean seriously,cant decide wheter to laugh at the sorry state some parts of internet are or cry because how matters stand.
