    Obviously it's a problem that has to be dealt with. It can lead children and teens that are victims to have feelings of insecurity, low self-esteem, guilt for not being able to deal with the issue, and even suicide.

      Cyber Bullying crime are not in the the spotlight, like all the other crimes.So people don't really think it's a big problem until it happens to them.

      I think that recent cases have brought awareness to people, and things are better than they were, say, 10 years ago. Lot of places have included cells within the scope of their harassment laws and there are cyber-crime units in police departments.

      Really now.  you go on line and someone talks mean. And you do not just go somewhere else on line?? It is very strange. Perhaps cyber baby is the crime.

    People need to stop protecting their children and teaching them to react like victims. Someone said "blah blah blah"? So what?
    Show up at school, make a simple statement that this is untrue and the other person misspoke. No insults, no throwing wood on the fire. But, don't ignore it, either.
    Then, pray for your enemy.
    People have lost trust in God, and love is growing cold in society.
    Why don't people think about the bully? What is his/her home life like that he/she has overflowing anger and abuse to pour on others?
    The answer is not more law and more government power over the Internet and more gov't replacement of society and parenting.
    The answer is for parents to be more involved with both children AND community.
    But, the real, ultimate, answer is to trust in God. In my life, prayer has overcome neighborhood drug dealers, and every kind of enemy. It has opened up amazing opportunities in career and even for me to find my super wife.
    A cyber bully problem can be resolved by God. Jesus is the answer.

      An awful lot of cyber-bullying, unfortunately, is done in the "name" of God or Jesus and by those professing faith. There is no doubt that anti-gay bullying---much of which comes from Christian and faith-based groups, is a key part of cyber-bullying.

    I feel, bullying in any form is not correct. It is a crime to my mind. I would say this because, bullying creates a negative impact on the person's mind. this negativity provokes them to commit acts which they would otherwise not do. we keep on hearing so many cases these days. People committed suicide because someone bullied them on any social media website.
    Hope this answers your question. smile

    I think we, as a society, are beginning to get it: Cyber-bullying is real and needs to stop. Cyber-bullying can, in some cases, rise to the level of criminal conduct. I suspect that most cyber-bullying starts with one individual who seeks to hurt another by engaging in conduct designed to humiliate and/or intimidate. But, I also suspect that cyber-bullying often becomes a "team sport"; often becomes part of a larger set of actions by a group against an individual.

    The term "mobbing" is increasing being used to describe the kinds of collection aggression and collective abuse we see in online environments.

    And cyber-bullying and/or "mobbing" is not just something that kids do. Adults do it as well. I have seen numerous examples of cyber-bullying and "mobbing" on Hubpages---as well as many other sites populated generally by adults.
