Adult Cyber Bullying
Submitted by mellowmama
I have looked on the internet about cyber bullying and noticed that they had a lot of information about kids and teens but not enough about adults. Adults can bully too.
Some signs of bullying online: threats, attacking you verbally for everything that you say, putting you down to make you look bad in front of others, getting others together to gang up on you, calling you names, cussing at you repeatedly and in general making you feel badly and making your time on the internet a living hell. Make sure to report it right away. Also stop all communication with the bully even though it is tempting to retort back. This just keeps the abuse alive. If the bully recieves no response from anyone, then he/she will eventually stop. There will always be those who want to inflict abuse upon another, but the way that it is handled will save you a lot of trouble. The signs of adult cyber bullying can be the same as with kids/teens. If you find yourself avoiding using the computer where you enjoyed it before, getting stomachaches,headaches. If you have trouble sleeping when you haven't had that problem before. I'm not saying that there's a big problem here on PC but we all need to be on our toes and be aware of any problems that may arise. All of us on PC know to click on "report abuse" if there's a problem but in order to report it we need to recognize it beforehand.
