Fact: If a statement made either verbally, or in written form includes a threat of physical harm directed at a specific individual, it is not protected under the First Amendment and is instead a form of harassment, for which legal action can and should be taken in the form of an Injunction Against Harassment.

Fact: If a statement made in written form is made as an allegation of fact and with the purpose of damaging a specific individuals professional or personal reputation it is a form of libel, for which legal action can and should be taken, in the form of a Civil Suit on the grounds of Defamation.

Fact: Internet anonymity is a myth. If subpoenaed, the owner of any website, and the hosting provider of that same site on which slanderous statements are posted would be legally required to provide all identifying information of the offending poster. This includes your I.P. address and MAC address, which in turn identifies the machine that the posts originated from, regardless of whether a proxy was used.

Most people on here are only children. You're not helping their situations any at all or giving them any room to get better. If you treat someone like they are bad, they will be bad.

Fact: One of the most dangerous sites for cyber bullying on the internet is right here.

Fact: It takes tens of thousands of dollars and years of depositions to file a lawsuit to obtain a subpoena. How the heck do you expect the average person to do that just to get some nasty comment made up about them off this site?

Fact: Getting an IP address then requires someone to subpoena the owner of the IP address from the ISP, an even tougher wall to climb.

Fact: This website is a tinderbox for abuse, defamation and cyberbullying

I would like to invite people that are ready to take a stand against Internet hate and Cyber bullying/stalking to come participate on my thread, "Help Stamp Out Cyber-bullying" on topix. It provides you with websites to contact if you want to get law enforcement involved and suggestions for dealing with bullies yourself.(My personal preference.)

Be aware: This forum is infested with bullies but considering I am an advocate for dealing with bullies directly, this isnít a bad thing. It gives me the opportunity to demonstrate various ways of confronting these abusers.(Directly and non-directly. I have no control over the negative behavior of others.(As is the case with Internet bullies anyway.)

If you are going to spout off a big list of "facts" please use a citation, otherwise your "fact" is just more saber rattling.

Not worried much about that. Democrats will take care of that for you, all you need to do is set down, open your guzzle, and let them tea bag your check to you.

WOW! I couldn't have said it any better dude. Thanks "Faraday" for that info. This problem has been going on too long because too many excuses have been made for it: "oh, they're only kids! Oh, the cops won't do anything about it here! Oh, why bother with the foul-mouthed kids!" Excuses. Lame excuses!!! You can tell on TOPIX who are the kids & who are the adults and who are mature and who are immature. I think the kids continue doing cyber-bullying on this TOPIX site because they think they can get away with it undetected. Not with today's technology. It's fairly easy now to have the website owner to run an identity "purge" to find perpetrators. TOPIX needs to be take such action now.
