    Online Menace: Cyber Bullies - ABC News

    let me just bottom line this...an 11 yr old who needs her face washed...way too much make up....(any is too much at 11 yrs old) is standing up to cyber bullies....i would also take her computer for the profanity she is using....she rants and raves and then the father rants.....

    threatening people with the 'cyber police'

    so would you support your 11 yr old in this. or simply remove the computer and webcam?

    I think the whole family needs a good swift kick in the rear, removal of Internet access for the 11 YO would be a start, then some counseling the this kid and her dad.

    She has way to much free time. I would kill the power to her computer, by taking an ax and cuting off the plug end of the cord.

    This stuff has to stop. It's very, very scary. I just read an article about Reputation Recovery - a program that monitors and erases embarrassing things people write on the net. Kids don't realize that horrible things they say can be a "permanent scarlet letter" for themselves and their peers. It's out of control.

    The internet really shows us what shits many people are.

    Real life has a way of keeping shits in check since there is often the threat of retribution for overt dishonesty and nastiness.

    The net doesn't work that way so stinkers and cowards are free to act out.

    The girl needs serious counseling. I'd take the whole computer away, let her only use it while under parental supervision and then only for schoolwork.

    wth is an 11 yr old doing with a computer and webcam in her bedroom? wth is wrong the parents?

    as for the 'millions of viewers' able to watch this or read the comments . . . . newsflash, no one cares except for the people immediately involved.

    pull the damn computer, yank her damn cell phone, wash her face and ignore the crap. the longer she provokes it via webcam meltdowns, the longer it will persist. if you don't feed the animals they'll go find food elsewhere.

    Yep. Without the 'net the neocons could have never acted out and invaded and occupied two nations that never attacked us and killed thousands in the process.

    And CircleJerk proves, once again, why he is a dumb shit. Just unable to actually discuss a topic aren't you CircleJerk.
