I don't know because it's just as bad as any other bullying behavior. Cyber bullying can lead to sucide and that's not ok.
I think that with all the focus on bullying in general, it isn't taken as lightly as it was a few years back. Unfortunately, I think the bullies won't stop until something really makes them, whether that means they or someone else gets hurt - Sad stuff.
It's actually against the law. Read the laws of your state. Most states any kind of cyber bullying or harassment is against the law and is punishable as a felony if any kind of threats are made.
School systems let it cyber bullying going on.they must know the law.
It is not up to the school systems to punish cyber bullies. It is the parents responsibility to make sure their children are safe from all harm. The signs are there when a child is being bullied or having other issues. Parents ignore them.
As Author Cheryl said, it's not to be trifled with because it's against the law in a lot of countries. The sad part is that while there is a lot of action to take on it (in the UK, police do not rest until cyber bullies have been apprehended and that doesn't take long), it's not viewed that seriously because it's not nearly as visible as physical bullying. You will notice depression in someone who is cyber bullied and even the scars of physical self harm, but you can't find evidence of someone doing it to the reciever unless you check their phone, computer, etc.
I find that a lot of (but not all) people who get involved in cyber bullied manage to do it themselves. There's a lot of security features on social networking sites - a common source for cyber bullying - that prevent others seeing personal information or using things against the victim. As the saying goes, "there's no smoke without fire", but it's a shame that's not always the case.
i believe that since it is done over the internet as opposed to face to face, it is not seen as harsh. there is no bodily injury in cyber bullying. even tho i believe that words (mental cruelty) cut deeper than a fist.
