Title: Bullying and Cyber-Bullying: What It Is, and What to Do.
Post by: Omega on May 17, 2012, 04:33 pm
It's not a big secret cyber-bullying is going around this site. We do have rules against it, but rules are made to be broken, so to speak, but here's some things to do if you're being bullying.

What Is Bullying?
Bullying is when a person picks on another person. Some times it's cause they don't like them, or just simply because they're different. Cyber-bullying is the same, but is strictly done over the internet or texting.

I'm Being Bullied! What Do I Do?
First of all, do not fight back. This can only lead to a bigger problem. If you're being bullied at school or anywhere offline, tell an adult. If they don't do something, tell another adult. Keep making it known that there's a problem til someone does something to help you.

If you're being cyber-bullied, tell an admin or mod. If we're talking about being bullied on Sploder, tell a Soldier, Lt, or General. I assure you, we'll handle the situation for you.

There's a Member Writing Hurtful Messages To Me On The Mainsite! What Do I Do?
I've seen this many times, and dealt with it many times also. To begin, do not erase the messages. They're the proof we mods need to do something. If you're being bullied on the MS, then tell a MSM. You can find a list of all the MSMs here.  


I know this may not have helped some, but for others the smallest detail can save a life. This problem is real, and people get hurt. This problem is real, and we need to stop it.

Although suicide is a serious thing, I don't think someone would suicide over being harassed by people on the Internet that they don't even know in real life.

It should be pointed out at truths' expense that "suicide" is not a verb.

The Oxford dictionary states otherwise.

Two wrongs don't make a right. However, there is a difference between fighting back and simply defending yourself.

That depends on the situation. If it's a harmless argument and you need to back yourself up, it's fine to make a point. Just plain flaming (pointless insults) is no good, though. Basically, use the 'Treat others as you want to be treated' rule.
