Introduction To The Subject Of Cyberbullying

Author's Introduction

If you’ve spent time conversing with others in web 2.0, or, communicating via a “smart phone” that may include texting, messaging, or just plain talking, there’s a good chance you’ve experienced some level of “cyberbullying.” Merriam-Webster online dictionary defines the noun or verb word “cyberbullying” as: “the electronic posting of mean-spirited messages about a person (as a student), often done anonymously.” (Merriam) I myself do not tweet (using twitter), post on Facebook, or text sociably, but I’ve experienced what could be considered online bullying.

This site addresses cyberbullying among youth’s. You can find that most sites dedicate some material to adult on adult, or adult on child, cyberbullying. It is important to note, however, that for adults ages eighteen or older, the law defines excessive cyberbullying as “harassment,” and “stalking.” There are very strict repercussions for these adult on adult crimes. For example: you may sign a contract with an ex-girlfriend/boyfriend, in front of a local jurisdiction court prosecutor, to agree to stay away from that ex-partner. If you so much as ask another person about them in the future, this would be in violation of your contract. That could trigger the prosecutor to have you arrested, jailed, and presented to the local courts for arraignment! With the abuse rampant in our society today, many local jurisdictions are taking a “zero tolerance” policy on these crimes. See more resources under the "Adult Section" under Where To Get Help.

You may consider this site “a cyberbully beginner’s guide.” I'll give you a crash course on the subject and I’ll talk to you like your two: I’ll further define cyberbullying here with material from professionals, and you can go to the Latest Legal Actions Page. I include a section for do’s and don’ts, titled: What To Do And What Not To Do. There’s a Where To Get Help section at the end, which provides an endless morgue of resources for cyberbullying, and the references for this site.
