    I feel bad for him if he got bullied at school, but honestly I don`t believe cyberbullying is a real thing. It`s the internet and people are going to be dicks, get over it.

    @syke22 "I don`t believe cyberbullying is a real thing" - Teens already have Committed suicide because of cyber-bullying. That makes it pretty real. Telling people to get over it is about as sensitive and useful as telling anyone who`s feeling depressed, sad or angry to just `get over it`.

    Cyberbullying isn`t the same as real life bullying.
    You can turn the phone/computer off without them smashing you to the ground.

    I would never advocate bullying, but I do think it is pitiful how some people let it rule them.

    There was a time that I was bullied on a daily basis. I never really let it get to me much, but one day I guess it pushed me overboard. One of the usual school bullies spit at me, so I threw his head into the wall and beat the living poo out of him. Got suspended, but it was well worth it. I never let anyone pick on me again lol. I do think that day literally defined who I am for the rest of my life.

    @Kegomatrix:
    Good for you! I had a problem in junior high school for a while. Problem was resolved after I punched out a few of the jerks who thought they were cool enough to get away with it. I also got suspended. Also needed stitches in my hand where it got cut on a tooth I broke out of one guy`s face. As you noted, though, it was well worth it! Unfortunately, not everyone is able to resolve these issues for themselves - maybe not big enough, strong enough, or gutsy enough. Sometimes too many against them. And sometimes these are the ones who bring a gun to school...

    syke22,
    Cyberbullying is real in at least 2 ways. For one thing it isn`t restricted to the cyber world since everyone at school, work, etc. gets to see it and take part in real time. The other is that the victim probably can`t help thinking that now the whole world knows and there`s no where to go where he/she isn`t going to be recognised and further antagonised. I don`t know that the last would pertain to social networking sites (I consider them "stalker networking sites"), but, if you`re in a video that`s gone viral worldwide, I can understand how you might feel you`ve lost any chance at privacy without remianing in solitude.

    what a sad and different world from the one i lived in as a high school kid (mid 1970`s). we just called one another b*tches and sluts and whores and slept with each other`s boyfriends. nothing so traumatic as films of rape posted or passed around (like steubenville and other locales) or other forms of cyberbullying.

    i`m glad he`s says he`s over it. but looking at him, he still looks damaged.

    i wish i could hug him and tell him things get better as you get older but i don`t know what kind of future is ahead for all of us in this post-everything-you-ever-do/say/think atmosphere that we live in now.

    Honestly if the opinions of 10 million internet-jackoffs got to him then he had problems LONG before the video came out. I don`t feel bad for him at all. Once you let the opinions of others rule what you think of yourself you`ve truly forgotten what matters in the first place.
