Can you imagine being bullied by the Internet?

 

That's like being bullied by your television or your toaster.

 

These things have a power switch you know.

 

OHHHH, Don't say anything mean to me!  You'll run me off!

 

I mean seriously, WTF?

Team Alpha Snail - Clearly isn't a hot topic across the pond, knew OP was a Brit before I saw his UKTT posting about this. I think this forums pretty relaxed anyway so its not an issue on here plus the mods keep a good eye out. Jimmy getting rustled is pretty harmless. To be fair to OP though its a hot topic in the UK as a few teenagers have recently killed themselves because of messages they've received on Facebook or similar sites. Phone Post 3.0

Those kids' parents need to be taught how to raise children better then. If cyber bullying drives you to suicide, you're either mentally ill, or were raised to be a pussy.

Frobenius - This has been a big thing in the press recently, how to stop cyberbullying. I think the UG should be pro-active about this rather than waiting for an incident to hit the news.

Now, in the last week I think I have been frozen 5 or 6 times. Look through my posts - some (at times) controversial opinions to be sure, but nothing that breaks the TOS. Sometimes, I will be unfrozen only to make one post and instantly find myself frozen again! Now this doesn't bother me, but I worry about the effect it might have on a more vulnerable person. That sort of abuse could push them over the edge.

The UG needs a REPORT ABUSE button, and it needs it yesterday. It needs to have someone (not Chris) looking into the reports in REAL TIME and banning people as appropriate. No one should be subjected to the kind of abuse and vitriol that spews from certain posters on this site.

What do you think UG?

Kirik,and all the guys give a shit. Send them a PM instead of subjecting yourself to possibly another freeze...

Unless... this is... a work.

He gets a ton of vote downs every time he posts. I dunno when the UG removed the displays on the negatives, but he was well under 600, that is also when the UKTT had more active members.

He must be well in the negative 4 digits now.

For cyber bullying to actually be effective it has to be laced with real life people we know. Cyber bullying is the effective exchange of information and rumors in such a way that the victim can see as it happens. Usually involves partial truths (pictures, sex videos, secrets) and are expanded upon.

On the UG a certain level of anonymity should be maintained. Of course after a while one can feel comfortable enough to share information and develop relationships further.

The UG is not a daycare, not selfhelp.org. If you know you have no backbone or are very easily intimidated, take extra care not to reveal anything about yourself that could be compromising. If you want to voice and flaunt a point of view in another users face, don't act surprised if you generate a reaction.

If you give it you better be able to take it also.

That being said, I think in general the mods do a decent job of moderating. The ToS does frame the forums imo enough to keep 95% of situations from getting out of control. If anything gets out of hand they are always there to listen and help if ever you lack the social iGrace to handle it yourself.

Steve4192 - The only thing worse than people abusing the voting system is people who cry about being voted down. VTFD.
This. Vote downs are just vote downs, i got voted down 4 times since Saturday, but i have yet to search for a Report button or therapy. Vote downs or "cyberbullies" dont break into your home and demand your wife to grill a steak. Thats for Chael Sonnen to do. Phone Post 3.0

Yeah don't get me wrong something can't have been right, I mean no parent will ever know 100% what's going on with their kid but a good parent will have a pretty good idea. The fact reporting on mainstream social media is not that promoted is being used as a scapegoat with these stories. I was just making the point that its national news over here hence the reason for OP's post even if the UG will never need a report button and Kirik and the gang have got it under control.
