What is cyberbullying, exactly?

"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. It has to have a minor on both sides, or at least have been instigated by a minor against another minor. Once adults become involved, it is plain and simple cyber-harassment or cyberstalking. Adult cyber-harassment or cyberstalking is NEVER called cyberbullying.

It isn't when adult are trying to lure children into offline meetings, that is called sexual exploitation or luring by a sexual predator. But sometimes when a minor starts a cyberbullying campaign it involves sexual predators who are intrigued by the sexual harassment or even ads posted by the cyberbullying offering up the victim for sex.

The methods used are limited only by the child's imagination and access to technology. And the cyberbully one moment may become the victim the next. The kids often change roles, going from victim to bully and back again.

Children have killed each other and committed suicide after having been involved in a cyberbullying incident.

Cyberbullying is usually not a one time communication, unless it involves a death threat or a credible threat of serious bodily harm. Kids usually know it when they see it, while parents may be more worried about the lewd language used by the kids than the hurtful effect of rude and embarrassing posts.

Cyberbullying may rise to the level of a misdemeanor cyberharassment charge, or if the child is young enough may result in the charge of juvenile delinquency. Most of the time the cyberbullying does not go that far, although parents often try and pursue criminal charges. It typically can result in a child losing their ISP or IM accounts as a terms of service violation. And in some cases, if hacking or password and identity theft is involved, can be a serious criminal matter under state and federal law.

When schools try and get involved by disciplining the student for cyberbullying actions that took place off-campus and outside of school hours, they are often sued for exceeding their authority and violating the student's free speech right. They also, often lose. Schools can be very effective brokers in working with the parents to stop and remedy cyberbullying situations. They can also educate the students on cyberethics and the law. If schools are creative, they can sometimes avoid the claim that their actions exceeded their legal authority for off-campus cyberbullying actions. We recommend that a provision is added to the school's acceptable use policy reserving the right to discipline the student for actions taken off-campus if they are intended to have an effect on a student or they adversely affect the safety and well-being of student while in school. This makes it a contractual, not a constitutional, issue.

You people have nothing better to do with your lives do you

:-)

This is amazinggod here. Is this what you all do is sit here and bash people on here because they called you out on something. Is that all you do is make fun of people's learning disability. You are telling me that I am forteen year old and three old acting like this, but you are making posts about me tehat is not right and you are making fun of me. You are making fun of my learning disability and that is not right. You are bullying me because I see you trying to humiliate me in here by posting about me and making me look bad. I would never say I hate gays. I would never bash anybody on here. The urls are put down about me and I didn't want to see them anymore. You people are truly cool, when you know I got kicked off here and you are trash talking me while I am seeing this all on here and that is true cruel to do someone. I am get banned.

That doesn't really make sense.

I think he's trying to say that we don't believe in a possible heaven where all the good people get to be for the rest of eternity. That all our loved ones go there, and the famous lie that our beloved pets will be there, too.

Our moral code isn't defined by a book or necessarily by others, we find it ourselves. Most Atheists I tend to meet are critical thinkers, and usually take everything "odd" someone says with a grain of salt. So, there's not blindly following someone as well.

Just how I'm taking it.

There's really nothing difficult about not believing in something. In fact, I find it way harder to believe then not to believe. The idea of nothing after death is much easier to accept than Hell.

In any case, our moral code is more of an illusion than anything else, the conglomeration of various cooperative instincts that have been written millions of years ago and what we learned at a very, very young age. The act of developing a moral code is not one that most people would be able to take, as this is hard-wired into our brains. It would require, at least, a skilled hypnotist and probably a great deal of time.

Thinking for yourself isn't a problem at all, at least not for me. Maybe I'm just a jerk like that, but I think critical thinking comes natural to most people. Even then, atheism doesn't actual require critical thinking; it's just common amongst atheists.

Living in a world of restrictions isn't actually easier than mental freedom.

Some people say it would be harder to not believe. I personally struggled quite a bit when I was transitioning from Christian to Atheist-- mostly because the idea of Heaven was extremely appealing to me. Anymore, it just sounds like another type of hell.


Our morality, the whole of society's, seems to change up a bit(or it changes completely-- depending) with each century. It isn't that difficult to abandon what you were taught as a child if you question it while you're still young. It only gets more difficult the older you become since you've held onto them so many years. It's the same with religion. It's typically easier to convert or abandon it when you're young, as opposed to being middle-aged or so.


Well, it does. I probably should've explained better in my post but I was going for simplicity. Anyways, what I mean is that more Atheists are skeptical as a whole than religious counterparts tend to be. People in a church have always just nodded their heads in agreement with pastors or speakers. Their answer for everything typically has something to do with their God, while many Atheists will strive for a more fulfilling answer to something, or will take the opinions of other people and try to form truths. Not saying it isn't something no spiritual or religious people have; it's just rare to see them be like that.

I have to say you people have better things do the just bash Christians here. You mocked me for saying when Christians turn away from Christ they act like Atheists. Then you bash Christian Atheism. Christian Atheism is Christian that loves God by denies Christianity. Then you say I bash gays. Get a life. Stop bashing people. You are so evil in here.

Though I'm an atheist myself, I agree with your statement. I have my own opinions about religion, and at times share them. But I really don't mean to bash any religion, each person should believe what they wanna believe.

Cyberbullying is the use of information technology to harm or harass other people in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner.[1] According to U.S. Legal Definitions, Cyber-bullying could be limited to posting rumors or gossips about a person in the internet bringing about hatred in other’s minds; or it may go to the extent of personally identifying victims and publishing materials severely defaming and humiliating them.[2]

With the increase in use of these technologies, cyberbullying has become increasingly common, especially among teenagers.[3] Awareness has also risen, due in part to high-profile cases like the suicide of Tyler Clementi.[4]

In that case everyone who has ever made a post about gay being bad or religion being right or Christmas being a good thing I take as harassment go away you winy **** I didn't make anyone read this you don't like it then stfu and don't read it

Just delete these. They're doing it to a lot of us.

Do you have ANYthing Bette to do with your time than spam-trolling?

The uploader did not say anything bad about you or your religion. He simply made a positive statement about his own (lack of) beliefs.

She just spams.
