Default Bullying

I'm interested in your opinions on cyber-bullying and especially the distinction between it and trolling.

It depends on the nature of the troll. Por ejemplo, derive great enjoyment from people answering dryly and sarcastically, because lots of people don't catch it, and so THEY maybe perceive it as bullying, but I'm sitting back here enjoying those witty motherfuckers.

Free speech if it's not occurring on school property.

Trolls are just people who purposefully annoy others to get a crowd and attention. Cyber bullying, well I'm sure we all know what that is. It sickens me how many people are victims of cyber bullying. So bad that many teens have gotten depressed and killed themselves. This needs to be abolished. Maybe they will create a new law where bullying is obsolete and anyone who does it gets fined or something? Anything to stop bullying in general is fine by me. I've been there.

Why don't we just create laws that make it illegal to say anything mean or offensive?

I don't think it's nice but bullying is an evolutionary relic that determined who fucking survived long enough to make babies in crowded societies. I don't like it. It's unnecessary. But I survived it. I'd rather see kids learn how to be emotionally tougher. My granny called it having a thick skin and I eventually built one up. I wasn't and never have considered myself callous.

Trolling becomes cyber bullying when the person targeted doesn't understand the troll. I don't think any legal action or school initiative should be taken on it because the line is so easy to cross... I troll facebook friends all of the time, and never mean any harm by it.

That said, some cyber bullying is intended to be bullying from the start. These people should be sued for harassment, but again, school suspensions or criminal charges should not be included.

Cyber bullying isn't even legit. *Block* and the troll's are gone.

Oh wow Viper, I remember when you used to have an IQ of sub-60 then all of a sudden. One day...You started to make sense. That's when I knew it was the world that was crazy and not just me :D
