online bullying - some useful information

Postby judithj » Wed Jun 13, 2012 12:07 pm

the internet has brought solutions to communication problems, but brings new problems in its turn. social sites like Facebook can be particularly prone to this and it can have serious effects on your mental health, so here are a couple of articles for information and advice:

http://www.techwatch.co.uk/2012/06/11/f ... r-bullies/

and for parents:

This is not aimed at any particular site, but i believe it's better to be informed than upset, hugs, Judith xxx

my understanding of the issue was that vicitims of cyber bullying would from now on be given the name and contact details of the person doing the bullying so that the victim can take legal action. I hope that this is the case all cases of cyber bulling, including abusing vulverable people, is despicable. as you say Judith, this is NOT a dig at this site in particular as many webistes have been hacked, abused, and been victim of abuse in one way or another. xx big hug to anyonw who has been bullied cyberly or in real life xx

This is not aimed at anyone, just trying to clear up a few myths about hacking.

Most `hacking` comes from people inside the business/group etc

The term `hacking` means on a base level to contravene security protocols to tamper/remove data held in a secure environment, let me tell you to actually hack something is a rare skill that is not taught it is born with, we are talking about super intelligence here, not some stupid holliwood movie whereby someone unrolls a keyboard and plugs it into a `portable` hacking machine, it is all BS

A little known fact is that all the major banks employ good hackers to purposely break into their systems to show weakness and points of possible entry to keep their firewalls and AHP secure.

Thx kuru, i wasn't trying to be factually exact in my wording, just pointing out that if you are the victim of cyber crime that things will now be easier to take to justice x

Quote from this article: 'NEARLY all trolled statements are meant to be funny to some people, so it does have some social/entertainment value. So don't worry judith, you understood fine. Some trolls are nasty and posted with nasty intent! xxx

Oobydoobie,
That was a very interesting site and quite educational as well as amusing. Thank you for that.
You have such a good working knowledge of places of information. As well as good taste in music! :)
