    I think about that the law should be that they should band all of the people that are bulling other and but if they leave a message they should put there name but they dont put there name is because i think that they should tell there mom or any body that is taking care of them so that they can report it and they can print it for proff and so that who ever they are telling they will know that they are telling the truth?

    I think that people that’s on myspace saying threats on myspace. I have had messages sent to my phone it was a birhday card and I did not know who it was. That did not bother me, but if someone said some thing bad I will tell my teacher .

    We need to make laws about this. about my space and phones.

    I think the school has to get involved if someone is bothering me online even if it doesn’t happen at the school. All this is new we need new laws.

    If i t happened to me I would tell an adult because you can get murdered or kidnapped and that is why I think there should be a law about cyber bullying.

    CYBER BULLYING
    IS NOT A GOOD THING WHEN SOMEONE THREATENS YOU ON A WEBSITE YOU CAN GET THREATENDED
    AND THAT IS NOT FUN I THINK THEY NEED TO MAKE IT AGAINST THE LAW JUST LIKE WHEN SOME THREATENS YOU.
    IF SOME ONE DID THIS TO ME I WOULD TELL SOMEONE.

  13. I THINK THAT ONE WAY TO STOP IT IS BY TELLING TEACHERS, AND YOUR MOTHER AND SECURITY AND POLIC E.
    IT HAPPENED TO A FRIEND OF MINE ON MY SPACE.SOMEONE THREATENDED HIM HE KNEW WHO IT WAS
    HE DIDN;T KNOW THE KID, HE SAW THE KID ONCE.
    I THINK THERE SHOULD B E A LAW AGAINST IT.

  21. Xavier,

    I had this experience on a computer. My cousin threatened me in chat because of something that happened at home. If a stranger did this I would tell my cop friend Dennis. I think schools need rules about this stuff. Even if it happens at home between two students.
    I think we need to make laws about this stuff because this is wrong what they are doing. I think if somebody sends a bad email, the cops shoudl know about it. The cops have to be able to find the email address and where the people live to stop it.
