8 Lets Take a Closer Look at the Cyber Bullying Fact Sheet 9 Cyber Bullying Factsheet
All cruelty springs from weakness. (Seneca 4BC-AD65)
Bullying has become an online event as well as a physical one. Intimidation online can be just as bad and in some cases worse than when bullying occurs in the physical community. 10 Bullying
Bullies are those people who gain gratification (a sense of happiness) when they have provoked or tormented others. They feel better by making others feel worse. Cyber bullies are those bullies who use the Internet to be mean to others.
E-mail provides one method of communication for these bullies.
Flame mail mail designed to make another person mad is used along with hate mail mail that shows racism sexism or other prejudices.
Another way bullies use the Internet is through bulletin boards and chat sites to make their comments public.
Finally some cyber bullies build websites devoted to making a person or persons feel bad.
12 Think About It!
Do you think its a sign of strength or weakness to use the Internet for bullying Why
13 What to do if you are Cyber bullied
Tell someone. Dont keep this to yourself. Tell a trusted adult about the bullying.
Dont open or read messages by Cyber bullies.
Tell the police if threatened.
Tell your Internet Service Provider.
Tell your school if it is school related. Schools have a bullying plan in place.
Dont erase the messages they may be needed to take action. Instead put them in a folder unread.
Protect yourself never agree to meet with the person or with anyone you meet online.
If bullied through chat or instant messaging the bully can often be blocked. Tell someone!
14 How to keep from being bullied online
Dont give out private information such as passwords pins name address phone number school name or family and friends names. This information can be used by bullies and other harmful people on the Internet.
Use Netiquette. Be polite online and others will tend to do the same. If someone does get angry or bullies you ignore them online Cyber bullies want a reaction just like other bullies.
Dont send a message when you are angry it is hard to undo things that are said in anger.
Delete messages from people you dont know or from people who seem angry or mean.
When something doesnt seem right it probably isnt. Get out of the site chat etc.
Prevention 15 The best defense to keep from being a bully online Use Netiquette.
Be polite online and others will tend to do the same. If someone does get angry or bullies ignore them online bullies want a reaction.
Think about ways to apply E-mail netiquette to the following
Subject lines Attachments
Forwarded messages Spam
Chain letters Hoaxes
Your original messages
16 Chatroom Netiquette
Many of the same conventions that apply to newsgroups and e-mail are also relevant in chatrooms. Youre still just typing your thoughts and sending them to people but in a chatroom theyre just a little quicker to respond.
17 While chatting
Avoid Using ALL CAPS - Its considered yelling.
Decide What Tone the Conversation Has Before Posting - Dont use offensive language or nicknames. Always avoid making personal attacks and calling names.
Dont Flood the Chatroom - Flooding is repeating messages over and over or filling the screen with gibberish in order to impede communication in the chatroom.
Be Nice to Newbies - Remember your first chats If someone stumbles into your chat who is obviously new to this medium show some patience and help him or her get the hang of it.
