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.

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.

Gotcha, thanks for clarifying.

I personally think you shouldn't be able to vote someone down if they are making a positive comment about a fighter like most of Frobenius' 'controversial' posts are. Perhaps mods should make it impossible to vote down a post that has the word 'Bisping' in it to protect people against reckless abuses of the vote down system.

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?

mightymidget - i would sign that but it wouldn't matter. this is the best place to talk mma and the mods decide who stays and who goes. you may not get away with shit you see other people doing and may get banned but who cares? you can still read what you want even if you can't post or have to have a mud name so its six one way half a dozen the other.

you are a wise man indeed, mightymidge

Letibleu - 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.
