    Default Cyber bullying

    Just a reminder for those who are not familiar with patterns of cyber bullying....

    Examples of what constitutes cyberbullying include communications that seek to intimidate, control, manipulate, put down, falsely discredit, or humiliate the recipient. The actions are deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior intended to harm another. Cyberbullying has been defined by The National Crime Prevention Council: “When the Internet, cell phones or other devices are used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person."


    A cyberbully may be a person whom the target knows or an online stranger. A cyberbully may be anonymous and may solicit involvement of other people online who do not even know the target. This is known as a 'digital pile-on.'

    Harmful effects
    Research had demonstrated a number of serious consequences of cyberbullying victimization. For example, victims have lower self-esteem, increased suicidal ideation, and a variety of emotional responses, retaliating, being scared, frustrated, angry, and depressed.


    One of the most damaging effects is that a victim begins to avoid friends and activities, often the very intention of the cyberbully.


    Cyberbullying campaigns are sometimes so damaging that victims have committed suicide. There are at least four examples in the United States where cyberbullying has been linked to the suicide of a teenager. The suicide of Megan Meier is a recent example that led to the conviction of the adult perpetrator of the attacks.


    According to Lucie Russell, director of campaigns, policy and participation at youth mental health charity Young Minds, young people who suffer from mental disorder are vulnerable to cyberbullying as they are sometimes unable to shrug it off:


    When someone says nasty things healthy people can filter that out, they're able to put a block between that and their self-esteem. But mentally unwell people don't have the strength and the self-esteem to do that, to separate it, and so it gets compiled with everything else. To them, it becomes the absolute truth – there's no filter, there's no block. That person will take that on, take it as fact.


    According to the Cyberbullying Research Center, "there have been several high‐profile cases involving victims taking their own lives in part because of being harassed and mistreated over the Internet, a phenomenon we have termed cyberbullicide – suicide indirectly or directly influenced by experiences with online aggression."


    Cyberbullying is an intense form of psychological abuse, whose victims are more than twice as likely to suffer from mental disorders compared to traditional bullying.


    This is a great community, lets keep it that way.

    Think before you click.

    It's great to have mods, but it's also important to remember that each one of the posters is not just a paragraph of words on a screen, but a human being.

    Each one of us may write words of inspiration, but what good are they if we do not act upon them?

    Have a great evening everyone.

    Obviously this is an extension of the other thread that has been closed.

    Vigorously disagreeing with someone is not cyber bullying, especially when the supposed victim gives just as good as they recieve. Trying to say it is actually diminishes real cyber bullying.

    Mods have taken a step back in an attempt to minimise micro managing every thread that gets heated and I support that. Yes people should treat each other with respect, but being offensive, aggressive and rude then running behind the skirts of mods screaming cyber bullying not only doesn't necessarily make it so, it shows poor form.

    Sorry, I know you may not agree with me, but as a long term member I see it a lot.

    Actually, vigorously disagreeing with someone IS cyber bullying when it is perpetuated by many, involves character assassination and comments that are hurtful towards another person over electronic media. Furthermore, no remorse only indicates a lack of insight into the behaviour.

    I don't agree that this is an acceptable part of the culture at Bubhub, or anywhere else for that matter.

    I personally think you should all apologise to her.

    I see it all the time. Person A disagrees with the crowd . Person A then gets called all sorts of names.

    See all the time.

    There can be a real pack mentality on here.

    And don't get me started on the anti Christian sentiment.

    I often wonder if another religion such as Islam or Buddhism got the same treatment wether that would fly...

    But I digress....

    There was no character assassinations, and furthermore, since we are talking abut insight, maybe when so many agree, the person should consider there's a pattern there.

    Bringing thinly veiled agendas from closed threads is against the rules and is also not an acceptable culture of the forum.... nor is aggressive posters that cry foul bc everyone disagrees with them.

    Anyway, I'll bow out and leave you to your thread.
