The Alarming Increase Of Cyber-Bullying

With an alarming world-wide rise in cyber-bullying it is time for the United Nations to put in place sensible, global, internet regulation. This regulation is urgently required as many people, especially young women and gays, are being cyber-bullied to the point that they top themselves.

Cyber-bullying takes many forms – from simple body shaming to outright death threats. The emotional trauma that the victims suffer can be devastating. According to bullyingstatistics.org cyber-bullying includes:

  • Sending mean messages or threats to a person’s email account or cell phone
  • Spreading rumors online or through texts
  • Posting hurtful or threatening messages on social networking sites or web pages
  • Stealing a person’s account information to break into their account and send damaging messages
  • Pretending to be someone else online to hurt another person
  • Taking unflattering pictures of a person and spreading them through cell phones or the Internet
  • Sexting, or circulating sexually suggestive pictures or messages about a person

Wow – that is some hurtful stuff! According to nobullying.com, some of the barbaric tactics that the inhuman bullies use are:

  • Flaming: This is an aggressive exchange between two or more people online.
  • Impersonation: Technology allows people to post or comment as others if they have gained access to another’s account. This can be used to bully.
  • Cyber Stalking: Social media and messaging gives stalkers new opportunities to contact follow and harass their victims.
  • Outing: Direct access to large groups of people can make outing, sharing secrets and other personal information all the more hurtful.
  • Trolling: This involves trying to wind up others online with immature questions or mean comments.

The statistics on cyber-bullying are truly shocking:

  • Over half of adolescents and teens have been bullied online.
  • More than 1 in 3 young people have experienced cyber-threats online.
  • Over 25 percent of adolescents and teens have been bullied repeatedly through their cell phones or the Internet.

Notorious cyber-bully pioneer @skankbusta 

So it’s not surprising that, at the Accredited Times, we have noticed a worrying trend of alt-right trolls invading our comments section and maliciously cyber-bullying not only ourselves, but also our legitimate progressive comment contributors. There has even been reports of an Accredited Times commenter being mercilessly bullied on multiple other forums after having reached out for gay/trans support here – this is unacceptable.

Because of this alt-right cyber-bullying the Accredited Times has implemented an innovative flagging system to immediately flag bullies the minute they get out of line. We call on the United Nations to take this powerful new tool in the fight against cyber-bullies and make it mandatory globally.

Smashing article Rich! Cyber-Bullying is an absolute epidemic, affecting millions of innocent victims worldwide! We cannot continue to enable this criminal activity in the name of “free speech”. Something NEEDS to be done, NOW. Obama needs to accelerate the handover of the DNS to the UN, where it will no longer be under the jurisdiction of the constitution and the first amendment. Hate speech is not free speech, and hurtful speech simply has to be shut down to protect the feelings of those who use the internet. The internet should be a safe space for EVERYBODY, not just aggressive trolls!

That photo of @skankbusta makes me feel nervous, especially knowing he’s a notorious cyber-bully. I mostly hide in save spaces in the woods, but when I do come out for air, I shall avoid evil-looking men with big specs and a mustache. Thank you for warning me, this is a great accredited site.

This flagging system here looks like a MDW, I ain’t sure if the Geneva Convention allow it.

Cyberbullying is the essence of hate speech. It’s designed to keep gays in the closet, womyn in the kitchen, transgendereds in the wrong bathroom, and People of Color in chains.

Black Lives Matter

So true. For starters, anyone who donated to Trump needs to be thrown in a gulag for re-education.

Black Lives Matter

By, the way, did you know that a vegan diet is even better than a vegetarian diet?

Black Lives Matter

Your microagression was hurtful, and it did trigger me. In light of your prior progressive record, I was thinking of a nuanced way of responding. I thought to myself, “What would Keith Olbermann say?” Then, as I was about to write an “all caps” response, I saw your post here. In any event, to be clear, HATE SPEECH IS NOT FREE SPEECH!!!!!!!

Black Lives Matter

Self-denouncement is an important step. You should also mail a reparations check to a Person of Color in need and say ten “Hail Obamas”:

“Hail Obama, full of grace, the Lord is thee; blessed art thou amongst womyn and minorities, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, ObamaCare. Holy Obama, Prophet of Allah, pray for us deplorables, now and at the hour of Trump. A-womyn.”

The 1st Amendment guarantees the right to troll!

Preposterous. I flagged this nonsense as Russian propaganda. Go back to Moscow if you want to troll.

Mr. Regressive: The original authors of the Bill of Rights had never heard of trolling. They could not have possibly have been including it in “freedom of speech.” But if they had heard of it, you better believe they would have written:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech EXCEPT FOR TROLLING …”

Mr. Regressive, let’s leave the hard questions about the living Constitution to the smart people, our progressive Supreme Court.
