The Dark Side of speech, Pt 2
our culture and probably most other people have previously thought that bullies are bad news, but bullying is also a rite of passage. We often think that bullying tends to end with college. Nothing is further from the truth
As a culture, resistant and often wages adult bullies -. Especially Bully managers in the workplace. We welcome bullies in entertainment as a warrior and a winner (as we also celebrate the bully get his or comeuppance her), and although hazing in schools, the military and brotherhood are getting pushback from the culture, we do a little to eradicate bullying. Our politicians are often renowned bullying in nature. Unless there are bodies, it seems that we expect people to just put up with it (or fight back).
as harmful as heinous as bullying can be, cyberbullying takes it a step further. Cyberbullying using the Internet and other electronic forms technology to post mean or embarrassing photos, messages, emails, or to make threats. However, attackers often anonymous – unknown – and there is no one to fight against. Therefore, potential cyber bully is often emboldened to create as much havoc with the life of the victim’s possible. Potential viral nature of such posts – that is, can these posts to repeat a lot, quickly, and indefinitely -. Not happen in a face to face meeting
A typical (non-cyber) bullying event happens at a moment in time and it is completed (although other such event can occur). Bullying happens at a point in space – the street corner or in the office, maybe. A bullying is often witnessed, with attackers known to all present. A cyberbullying incident, on the other hand, can be distributed to hundreds of people in seconds and millions of people in a fairly short, can last for a long period, can be distributed around the world, and has no one to answer for their actions.
Therefore, damage from such incidents may occur again and echo again and again. Sadistic kind can take pleasure in repeating and reposting, and even create a web site to encourage their persistence. These sites caused a pile-on effect, with nasty fellow travelers bring their own often excruciatingly error of insults, reposting private photos, and multiply the damage. Some people may not realize or care about the damage they cause; others relish.
One unfortunate creation cyberbullying is “revenge porn.” There are sites on the Internet that are available only to humiliate and hurt people (mostly women) with electronic display and reposting sexual photos of ex-lover or interested. Some of these letters are designed to embarrass colleagues about the person pornographic photo is posted. Target may be a former boyfriend or husband of the victim to be “collateral damage.” Even well-known individuals can take part in the ugly behavior, such as the recent case of hip-hop star and his site featuring pornographic video of girlfriend hip-hop in his beef with rap.
Many victims seemingly endless cyberbullying, including customers who have come to us for help, have had their self-esteem devastated. Others have been driven drug use dropping out of school or community, and bullying behavior has even been implicated in suicide. Although usually not considered a crime, it is far from victimless.
Cyber Talking is a more extreme form of cyberbullying, and as cyberbullying, is much enabled by anonymity possible via the Internet. It is the use of the Internet and other technology to harrass someone, though some cyberstalking may be the secret of time. But “traditional” Stalker may shadow the movements of the victim, spying on them from hidden areas or with binoculars or a telescope, the cyber stalker keeps an eye on their ticket (s) electronically.
Much of our social life is a semi-public these days, social media such as Twitter and Facebook. The Internet makes it easy for a person to hide his or her identity, making fake identity, or pose as someone else – perhaps the false friend – that makes it simple to spy on the activities of individuals on social networks. As cyberbullying, ease of anonymity on the Internet can embolden the cyber stalker, thinking (often correctly) that they will not find out.
We regularly encounter cases where Stalker has been able to investigate and guess credentials for the email address of the victim or other online accounts that makes it easy to find the victim’s whereabouts, conversations and correspondence. In some of these cases, the perpetrator will even interpret the victim, sending fake e-mail messages, status as victims themselves, or publish embarrassing pictures if the victim herself was the source of the statements, pictures or videos.
This has come to understand and judge to mean that the government can not keep you from telling piece, no matter how much the government or someone else might disagree. This applies to all governments in the US – Federal, State, local party and government officials of these government entities. You are free to speak in a “Public Square.” Note that the term Public Square only to the activities of institutions, assets and officials. It does not apply to private or commercial. Property owners or business owners can prohibit you from saying certain things, or from saying anything of it or within their own property, trade, or broadcasts unless it is otherwise allowed.
Stalkers can find a way to infiltrate itself into the fabric of economic, social and family of the victim, so personal life in tatters. While it’s easy to read about such events and behavior – it’s all in the news – victims often find themselves not being taken seriously, friends and loved ones call her nervous or paranoid. Since the cyber stalker is often trying to damage the reputation of the victim, their reaction in the vicinity of the victim often more goals Stalker is.
And while cyberstalking is illegal in many parts of the country and around the world, these efforts rarely rise to the level of law enforcement needs to see in order to take it seriously, or to study. Read between the lines in the news and you will find that almost all the arrests that include cyberstalking also contain a dire threat, a violation of the restraining current, ID theft, theft of physical assets or violence against children.
Internet trolling the behavior where giant intends to inflame, upset, or otherwise damaged civil dialogue. In connection with this series of articles, it has the potential to disrupt online or other public communication using vile invective, insults and other verbal destruction. It is often misogynistic. The ability to be anonymous online removes a lot of inhibition one might otherwise think to behave so uncivilly.
What to do?
A common thread throughout the described behavior is the ability to be anonymous online. One might imagine that the removal of the option to remain anonymous would remove incentives for behavior, but in this case, the solution would probably be worse than the problem. In the first part of this series, we discussed the speech – one of the most important our rights – and the importance of anonymity. Both have played a role in the very creation of the nation and continue to protect those who would speak out about the abuse, even as said anonymity makes other forms of abuse. What should we do
In Section 3 we discuss what we can do and what is being done? – Both legal and societally – to limit the harmful cyber behavior
