What is ...

Cyber-bullying            

WOW!!!!

                                                                   *Cyber-bullying --- e-bullying ---- Internet bullying*

Bullying and harassment come in many forms.  Cyber-bullying is using email, cell phones, pager text messages, instant messaging, web sites to display embarrassing and vicious personal information, and offensive online personal polling web sites  ---- to bully, harass, harm, flame or haze a targeted person!!!!
 

 

 
What to do if you are a target:

1.  Do not ignore it.  Seek help from a trusted adult
     or authority.

2.  Do not reply to messages from cyber-bullies. 
     This may only serve as encouragement for
     the behavior.

3.  Do not erase or delete the messages from
     cyber-bullies!
     You don't have to read it, but keep it! 
     * It is your evidence and could also provide
        traceable clues to who is responsible!
        Show it to your teacher, parent, or some
        other authority figure!
