I have always tracked abnormal behaviour within the Net. Early indictors can lead to some distrubing consequences. Just like " Kimveer Gill who includes a photo of a tombstone with his name printed on it - below it the phrase: "Lived fast died young. Left a mangled corpse." This was the story at Dawson College.
Today, its become a bigger issue after I read and followup on the Kathy story. Threats, trolling and worse seem to be an inate part of the blogosphere, but it should be take seriously. These are early warning of dysfunctional people.
Can someone tell me what this is ??
that due to certain legal considerations,
never appear on the website at all!!!
Isn't that terrific?
What is terrific ?? he started one blog, which was removed, then he started another, which was removed. I kinda feel that something fishy happening here and Mr.RageBoy is not coming clean !!
"Ethan Kaplan of blackrimglasses has some thoughts about anonymity and cyberspace and its effect on behaviour. Danah Boyd of apophenia reflects on her own experience with cyber-bullying, and Hugh McLeod of Gaping Void has some thoughts as well, as does Karoli at Odd Time Signatures, and Cynthia Brumfield at IPDemocracy." [Via : Matt].
Its good to see the good old blogsphere kick back try to bring this into the fore front. I wonder if those who posted threats and pics' can be held for liable under criminal justice procesess ?
Update : "Should people fear becoming too public both online and offline, because they might open themselves to attacks?" - A good question in the making
