How ludicrous is the idea of cyber bullying?

Posted by: 1814Username

I keep hearing about cyber bullying, but think this is nonsense. After all, any person has the ultimate power and that is to literally turn off the computer and not go to a site.

You are right. A person has the ultimate power and that is to simply not go to a site and be online.

You are wrong. A person must log onto the computer and visit a site. He or she has no free will and is a slave to the computer.

This phenomenon is so interesting to me. People actually believe they can be bullied on the computer. A computer they can literally turn off. What am I missing? Why would a person even care about what a nameless and faceless coward might say to them online? I don't understand it.

The Spartans once literally threw their kids into the wilderness to survive. Yet in America today, our children get upset if someone types something bad to them. Personally, I blame feminism.

On a rare occasion I agree with you on this one.

Nah, I am not much for debating. It is a lot of work for little to no return. But I am sure someone will take up the argument. I understand that people are hurt by words --- I get it. But, really, I believe people have the ultimate power. Plus, what people forget is that not everyone is going to like you. That is not a big problem ---- some people aren't worth having as friends. Look at Jesus Christ. The man talked about love, mercy, and forgiveness. He saved lives and harmed no one, but people hated him. In this life, you have to be tough and tell people to go screw themselves sometimes. I guess I urge anyone, who is being cyber bullied, to just turn off the computer and know you will find friends. Be kind, be nice, and invest in yourselves. I have known people, who were bullied in high school and made fun off, turn out to be some of the most successful and beautiful adults you ever would have met. I personally know a woman, who was an ugly duckling in high school, yet after high school she turned into an international model. I just hope people hang in there and learn to turn off the computer. The internet isn't worth all that much really.

I'll debate you. @1814 ... Damn. That was deep.

@1814Username as someone who disagrees with 80% of what you believe I think you would benifit more from debating your point you need to prove your right and not just state that your right like you usually do.

People who whine about cyber bullying are morons.

Its really the equivalent to crying over a troll. Ive been trolled before allot of times and it never effected me.
leonitus2464 says2014-07-28T17:52:57.1693612-05:00
Because trolls arent worth your time or thought.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-28T17:53:43.6225876-05:00
I just laugh at them or put em on display.
leonitus2464 says2014-07-28T17:57:20.0571551-05:00
If i get trolled I usually mess with them until i get bored.

Then you have those trolls that are hackers O.O

Both they can turn off the computer and they are stupid to take offense.
ben671176 says2014-07-28T19:00:21.9754829-05:00
Though Hackers are a real problem

I think most cyberbullying claims are ludicrous, but with a caveat: people revealing real life information or making death threats with real knowledge of your location. Those things still deserve punishment.
