"Cyberbullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones.

Being intellectually owned in general discussion is not cyberbulling.


too bad these OTHERWISED people are auctly adults



and yes it is still cyberbullying

just call the police and file the report-- you already know their face/phone/address.. provide the police with the information and proofss that you are being harassed these ex-friends and ex-bf so you have a case against them

lawsuits that involve "pain and suffering" will often will not have a limit in some cases-- so in order to sue or get a restraint order against them-- i would start with the police report as the first step.

If they emailed/texted/called.. you can get the proof pretty easily now a day..

ACR- for call recording
Email/text-- do screenshots

personally, only idiots should harass another person now a day since i can take you to court when i have sufficient evidences

believe me. Financial blows will LAST LONGER than physical blows-- if they got physical -- oh man-- they will give me a chance to defend myself and then sue to for even more

anyway--- gather the evidences and file a police report to get things started and then you can get a restraint order or sue them for "pain and suffering"

I don't know where you are but around here you can take issue like this to small claims court-- max you can sue is $3500 around here.. if it got worst and you think you have a case for even more hire a lawyer

i would suggest some light reading on the side

I don't mean to trivialize whatever bullying went on here, but really? Taking them to court? That just seems like a massive waste of time and money for everyone involved (minus the lawyers).

I agree with everyone else recommending letting it go and growing some thicker skin. If these people feel the need to bring you down just to make themselves feel better, they are probably shitty people whose opinions you shouldn't worry yourself over.

just troll them like I do. Although modderators are also cyberbullies such as lorren and makaokuns (idk his username) so its kinda unavoidable


oh wow I would never guess the mods being accused of it too

I think you can be older than a teen and still be cyber bullied. Though I think it can be easily resolved if you can use an ignore feature. This site, to my knowledge, has an ignore feature

Allow me to put more of a perspective here. Its not standard, childish cyberbullying the OP means. Its sexual based. This site is full of creeps. Everywhere. I see grown ass men adding 13-14 year old girls pming them instantly. These creeps make new accounts when blocked and usually have several already.

I've never been cyberbullied...but I guess if it happened to me, I would just tell them to fuck off or ignore them completely.

I know this happens, and I get PMs like that from time to time, it used to be a lot worse when I was more active, people asking me and my friends for sex roleplay, asking sexual questions or sometimes being brave enough to want nudes.

But I am curious of how you're seeing creeps "everywhere" and grown ass men adding little girls and PMing them instantly.

It's one thing if they tell you that happened, but I'm not sure how you came to the conclusion that it was a site "full of creeps" and not just a few men(and women) who are actively looking to get sexual with other users.

The OP means all kinds of bullying in the post, she doesn't mean exclusively sexual as that would be sexual harassment of soliciting and not what you'd normally call "cyber bullying"

never thought of that but that is a great idea


To further stress the point: Document, document, document. Document EVERYTHING. Every message, email, call, etc. Document it. Date it. Timestamp it. Harassment charges can be a real bitch to deal with and depending on where you live the police may be incredibly dicks about it. The more evidence you have, the less they can justify brushing you off.

Getting moderated for breaking forum rules != cyberbully despite what some seem to think.

I didnt know anyone really felt cyber bullying was real. If its kept solely online I dont see how you can be bullied. You can block people, report people, avoid forums known for trolls(none of that happens here though right?), and even change accounts. Whereas irl being bullied is usually unavoidable without taking extreme measures(dropping out of school/university or quitting your job.

Real life bullying however is much easier to deal with because restraining orders(atleast in WA state) are handed out like candy. The bully usually gets your point when they literally cant work or goto their school without violating the restraining order. Imagine trying to get a new job and reason you left former company was a restraining order against you... You'll rethink your choice of words/actions from then on.

Report that shit to a mod. Hopefully they can permanently ban the IP address.

Cyber bullying is bullshit. Click ignore, sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. Suck it up.

Oh, it's pretty much the same way it is at school:
Nobody does anything about it, and the principal just tells everyone to "be nice".

Cyber bullying...lol at it. Unless it is constant harassment with messages, you do have the power to control just about every thing. Most sites let you block people or you can ignore it out right. Eventually they will have to give up, cause it is so damn annoying to make a new email account, then a new CR account, and so on.

The only bullying I have done to people is just neg rep people, it is so strange how torn up people get when they start losing their "precious" likes and some sites people go negative. They get all ragging triggered that +1 is suddenly gone and its like...what is the value of visual number on the internet? Nothing. Hilarious they think I did something evil, but come on...I don't have to agree the statement you believe is fact and when you pull out an insult suddenly your statement has less value.

Another site I visit lets you comment and reduce or add their score, I put the dude as "Internet Keyboard Warrior" twice when he neg repped me, he backed off and changed mine positive. I removed mine but its like...chill out, it doesn't really mean anything since he was in the right and mine was more of a retaliation I was kind of irked over something but it wasn't like it was a real insult I did to him.

On CR, early this year I got an email from some idiot who said I looked dumb when I made a comment on an anime. Now I know I made several, but it isn't required for some moron to implicit tell me he thought it was stupid....might of been one I said about that stupid anime 10 minute that has idol girls running for prefecture offices where the main heroine was basically an airhead and I compared it to Donald Trump, just doesn't work (guy is kind of an idiot with all the tweeting and his Apprentice show). I responded in kind calling him an Internet Police Officer and he responds again with the word F that rhymes with maggot. He turns off his messages on CR (again, you can control it) but I tracked him to MyAnimelist site cause his bio page was identical and Google got a hit on the first try , mouthed off to him with a crap account I don't use on that site and never gone back since.

tl;dr - It is the internet, don't take it personally but respond in kind . It is only when it starts to go to the real world does it become a problem when they repeatedly stalk you.
