  • This is a problem

    Tech is going to be the future of this world and if bullying is counted as bad, well this is just the same as bullying except it is on computer. As stated before, tech is our future, then if bullying is also be on tech then our future isn't worth living. Bully's have just another way to get people back!

  • Yes it very much so is.

    Cyber bullying is very obviously a problem. With the reliance on computers and the usage of social media becoming more and more widespread and popular, cyber bullying is becoming more popular than normal old fashioned real-life face-to-face bullying. Cyber bullying is easier to do, harder to track who did it, and can hurt very much, depending on if you believe it, or if you ignore it. It is very widespread, for about 43% of kids have been bullied online. Think about that for a second. There are 323.1 million people in the USA alone. 43% of that is 138.933 million people. That is 139 million people bullied online by cyber-bullying. That is a lot more in all the world. NOW do you agree with me?

    I REST MY CASE.

  • Bullying is bullying!!!

    Cyber bullying is just as scary and hurtful to deal with as other bullying, if you are physically bullied there is scars left physically but if you are bullied online there is mental scars left. To me bullying is a subject we are and will always have to talk about. Children these days dont care about anything but being above others and they will do anything (even bully) to get there.

  • It is a real problem. A very serious one.

    Making a big deal out of one mean name doesn't make sense. If it's one name, it's easy to brush it off and say it was a one-time thing. After all, people get insulted on the Internet every single day. But once it becomes a routine or something that is done to someone by the same person or the same group of people, then it is a serious matter. And it only becomes cyberbullying when it is done repeatedly and constantly.

    The Internet was built for easy access to information and for communication. The word 'netiquette' was created for a reason and it's meaning should be something that it upheld by those who use the Internet.

    Cyberbullying can lead to depression and suicide and we created Suicide Prevention Lines for a reason yet we say that cyberbullying is no big deal. No big deal indeed. We say cyberbullying is no big deal but we want to save everyone who is suicidal. How can you reduce the rate of suicide when you can't deal with its causes?

  • Of course it is!

    Ask yourself this: is bullying bad? If you have any sense, you'd answer yes. Well, guess what? Cyber bullying is, surprise surprise, a form of bullying too. It needs to end.

    People that are cyber bullied can get extremely depressed and even kill themselves. And it's not as easy as people claim it is to just turn off the computer or phone and ignore them. Once you start getting cyber bullied, it becomes a part of you and your life. Cyberbullying victims find themselves wanting to know what people are saying about them. They can't help but go online to see if the drama has calmed down. Often they know it won't have, but they can't help themselves.

    Come on, people. This is common knowledge. Yes, cyber bullying is a problem.

  • Anonymity shouldn't be used as an excuse to offend and insult people online

    I feel that a lot of people use the excuse of anonymity to spur out whatever they want to say including offensive and spiteful remarks. Almost every forum I post in, certain people would find any flaw in my post to ridicule me or insult me. Other people are allowing them to do so. Including posts I made when I'm emotional. I'm sorry but this is unacceptable. Bullying in any form shouldn't go unopposed. Forum admins should take an active stance to put an end to this. What if a person is sensitive and is on the verge of suicide? Even something as simple as words can push someone to hurt themselves and it's not a funny matter. Even in the world of internet and even when we are all anonymous, still we should be more compassionate to others.

  • Yes it is

    People give too much of a crap of what is said on the internet. It is so easy to say things on the internet that one would not usually say aloud. If i said every thought that i have had, so many people would be offended and/ or be hurt, but there is something notable about thinking something and then hearing oneself say it that causes one to think about what he is thinking to say. With the internet that process is missing the step of saying things aloud and thus thinking about what one is thinking to say and every thought is vomited out and is typed. Hopefully that made a slight bit of sense... This generation is too dependent on technology and they are searching to find identity all over. They are desperate to find worth and they look all over for attention. This is why drugs, sex, money, changing sexual preference, and changing identity/gender is so prevalent today; its because everyone is looking to fill the hole they feel in them so that they can get through this evil cruel world. It is also why people join radical groups and let themselves get brainwashed; they want to be part of something that gives them the impression that they are needed. But to get back to the topic yes cyber bullying is a real thing. People need to take into consideration that we all come from different backgrounds and we are all wired differently and what is a trivial comment to one may be the most offensive slander to another. Also some people are going through some horrible things and an edifying or a caustic word can be the difference between someone choosing life or death.

  • Yes it is a problem

    A lot of people think not because it has never happend to them. But when it does happen to you it makes you feel horrible and sometime cyber bulling can be by your own friend this is why i think cyber bulling is a big problem because people can anonymisly harrasse other peers

  • Is CyBer bUllYinG a ReAl prObLem?

    Why is this even an argument. Like almost all of these posts, just shut your damn device off. Its a simple task, turn your device off. Even better yet, block the person. Thats why websites have a block option. Stupid debates like these piss me off. L l l l

  • No Its Not

    While people probably shouldn't say mean spirited things, they're allowed to say it, and for the argument that cyber bullying leads to suicide, why are you even on the internet if it makes you depressed and why do you give two sh*ts what people say about you. This is literally regular bullying except it's easier to stop and the people can't hurt you physically, just don't go where they can make fun of you or whatever they're doing.

  • It's a first world problem

    Cyber bullying is a FIRST WORLD PROBLEM. I have been bullied in real life many times and this is much, much worse. If you're forced to go to work or school and you get bullied there, there's almost no escape. You will encounter the person/people that keep bullying you and they will go on and on and on. You cannot run away from real bullying! You cannot back away from it!

    But cyber bullying? You can run away from it. If you get cyber bullied block the person that is sending you messages. If they leak inappropriate images, don't be stupid and send them in the first place! You have a choice to go on the internet or not, but you don't have a choice to go to school or work because you have to go anyway.

  • Not by any means.

    Cyberbullying is not a real problem. The main issue with people against cyber bullying seems to be that people are being offended. The majority of time, people are joking. Even when they aren't, you still have the ability to not take it to heart and toughen up. Turn off the computer, turn off the phone, go outside, and if you can't do that, grow some balls.

  • Turn it off

    Block, unfriend, look away, close your eyes, millions of ways to stop it and no physical abuse can come from it... These are fake issues for week people, I've been depressed (Yes the doctor diagnosed me) before and know what its like to struggle with it and I can say with 100% certainty that if you kill yourself because of pixels on a screen than life was going to be to hard for you anyway

  • No, it is not a problem.

    Cyber bulling is not a real problem, its usually people who just express their views in a strong, precise way. Plus, even if someone is really bullying you, you can now block them, make a new account on whatever your being bullied on, or report them. It was a problem in 2007 because you couldn't block people or report them, yet it isn't a problem now.

  • No its not a problem

    Because cyber bullying is for pussies and plebs how shouldn't be allowed on the Internet if their that soft, and if they cant take a joke they then I don't even know, they probably don't even have friends and also SEND NUDES XD coz why not and my snapchat is hungry_hippo113 and monkey_zolo1234

  • No it is not

    Just turn the Computer or the Phone off and go outside. What is with these first world problems? Cyber bullying is easily avoided but we make it seem like such a major issue that is affecting our lives. You aren't getting yelled at and you aren't getting physical assaulted. `

  • It's not an issue.

    Everyone has been shit-talked on the Internet at one point or another. If you kill yourself because someone said "you're a dumb faggot" or something like that, you have issues. Close the laptop, don't engage in social media, go outside, read a book. This isn't that hard people, and if you take some anonymous idiot on the Internet seriously, please leave the Internet and don't come back.

  • Shut the damn laptop

    Regular bullying and harassment is a problem, online harassment is not. The difference between cyber bullying and actual bullying is that you can do nothing to make regular bullying stop that doesn't greatly affect your quality of life. Online you can simply block the user, make a new username, leave the site, or if worse comes to worse shut the damn laptop. Another problem arises with enforcement and legality. The online plaza is one of the only places where children and adults can interact without either one knowing the other's age. Bullying laws are only pertinent when a child is the victim, and if the adult or other child is unaware of the other's age, that could cause people to accidentally incriminate themselves. This would cause an unintentional infringement on freedom of speech.
