    50-1 odds that none of the "new" strategies focus on preventing people from allowing themselves to be victimized.

    Impossible, because that would imply that the "victim" is somehow in the wrong. You don't go to a counsellor so that you can be told to man up and not let some shit-head online get the better of you. No, you go to them to be told that you did nothing wrong, and that everything will be okay, and that all you need is a few fistfuls of Zoloft a day to keep you happy and healthy.

    Cyberbullying is where you persistently isolate a single or particular person or persons and persistently harass and attack and pester them, and aggressively circumvent measures they take to avoid and stop communication with you.

    And that kind of harassment is something worthwhile bringing legality into.
    If it goes on and on and on and on and on and on, like allot of it does on Facebook, then the Police need to be involved to beat some reality into the shit.

    Well here is the fundamental issue of definition that is causing people to become concerned about cyberbullying: If you assume that any time any child anywhere either participates in, or receives cyberbullying, that there has been a failure of the system, you create this huge NEED to stop it.

    We all know that there are problems with the way they define cyberbullying, and they don't have a good chain of thought as to what the causes, effects, and MEANINGS behind it are. I like what that one researcher said that its more about "aggression", people just naturally do this shit to eachother and have been doing so for tens of thousands of years. I don't think much has changed in the schoolyard (we're talking middle income schools, you know schools with kids rich enough to be cyberbullied), but its a soft issue that people like to work.

    Kids will be kids, and we can't change that, not without taking away too much from what it means to be human. I think the only kids who are REALLY in danger of being seriously hurt from "cyberbullying" are people that have more severe problems that are coincedental to their internet usage.

    I think the attempts should all be about teaching kids to deal with it, rather than stop it. I don't feel bullied when ElectricYiff posts furry porn.

    The part of this article I find most worrying is the decline in traditional schoolyard bullying.
    We need to bring that back.

    You are right. Why is society turning into vegan pansies, who don't ever want to get hurt by the world, until they are adults? It's better if they learn how to deal with shit like this when they are young. Back in the day, you only got bullied if you looked weak, and if you did that was YOUR problem. Not the teachers, not your parents, and most certainly not the government. If you couldn't stand up to the bullies by yourself, you got your goddamn friends to help you, and failing that, you would take revenge by doing undercover guerrilla warfare against the bullies.

    I used to deal with bullies by cutting them or smashing them in the face, but now hero's of the playground get maximum suspension (which is Holiday) compared to the shit heads who were bullying in the first place.
    The problem is, why should your education be affected for showing some fuckwit what for?
    now it's out of hand because the people using physical violence in schools are the ones who do not care and get no reprehension for being suspended, it's just a holiday to them, it takes nothing of value from them.
    It's BULLSHIT.

    I know, I told my own grandson (who is kinda of a wimp) to play it undercover. If there is more than one bully, try to make them fight each other. He told me about the recent time, he took a faggy boy-band cd and placed it in a bully's bag. When the bully discovered it, he naturally thought it was a prank from another bully, and both of them fought each other, and apparently got suspended.

    Speaking of bags, allot of them used to get stolen because people put their Ipods in them, on two occasions i found my bag nearby and nothing was missing from it, other people's bags would never be seen again if they had something.
    All that was in mine was rotting garbage, like banana peel and some forgotten lunch and scrunched up paper, it was a good deterrent.
    Another good idea for adult life is to have a safe outside, filled with cement, robbers focus all their efforts on stealing that if they ever target your house after hitting everyone else, and once they finally steal it, they find it was all for nothing.

    First, the term cyberbullying is used way to loosely, the perceived "aggression" is because most people are prevented to perfom such acts IRL, educating them about not doing it OTI too is not going to work, we do it simply for the fact that we can, how about educating about not taking offence to obvious and deliberate acts of provocation.

    OH NOES!! being ignored on Facebook. The humanity.

    Like i said, true cyberbullying is defined as repeated harassment threats and so forth that is done persistently and repeatedly without provocation, and circumventing steps taken to avoid and prevent contact and harassment from said individual such as blocking, and going someplace else altogether.
    I had a facebook friend who was being cyberbullied persistently by a person who went after him just for blocking them, and not wanting anything more to do with the offenders bullshit.
    It did pay off in the long run, good thing too, if it kept going he would have had to get legal aid, which is expensive as he said, i said so too, it's usually egotistical shitheads that make the cyberbullies.
    They always perceive someone as having "wronged" them, the more frivolous the better.
