    I can understand abusive phonecalls might be annoying, but sms and msn/irc chats?

    I've been 'flamed' countless times online, do I care? did it work me up in to a fury? no.


    If someone starts talking crap ignore/leave the channel/block them it's online it's easy to do.

    People who take any notice of what others say online are possibly the dimmest creatures on earth.

    They're words, spouted by anonymous webmongs with names like 'Visage'. I mean, christ...get a grip.

    great the kids of tommorow, will have even less of a spine, when they leave education and work in the real world. A little bullying is very much a good think. If not taken to extremes.

    They are talking about schoolkids who bully others online as well as at school so its pretty relentless for the person being bullied I would imagine. Just makes them feel vulnerable and that they can't get away from it even at home.

    No such thing as a little bullying bullies are evil, a monthly confrontation is okay though :)

    It's not like some regular idiot talking to you on MSN...it's bullying, and whether it's done via phone, msn, or whatever, it's a horrible experience and any idiot who thinks it's ever a 'good thing' needs their head testing :mad:

    The whole point about this is that bullies take over their victims lives. And by threatening people and carrying on their daily bullying by intruding into their private messages, inboxes and phones, they make it impossible for their victims to get away.

    And btw I think that this
    is just a vile thing to do. So cowardly.

    Totally agree with that, being on the end of the phone calls at all hours of the day and having to change number twice I know what its like.

    Good for you, **** ***, I got pushed out of college because of it. Unless it happens to you you have no idea how bad it can be.

    MSN though and email is a bit far, you can just block the sender after one message but the phone calls is a little harder to do.
