Cyber Bullying is a serious issue in today’s schools and business. If everyone adopted and educated people on netiquette guidelines would this issue be solved? Explain. Unfortunately this is not something that will go away unless we educate people on how harmful this is. It is a way for people to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another person for either their own game, or they think it is funny. For the people on the other end of the bullying it is not a joke, and is taken very seriously. There have been multiple cases of children, teenagers, and even adults being bullied online to the point of taking their own lives. In these types of cases the offenders are getting punished for the crime; however there are many more cases that have not been brought out in the public eye. Some people are afraid to tell others, they may fear it will get worse or they just have no one to turn too. If I post a poem on my Face book site and someone cuts and pastes it on their site is that a case for stealing my intellectual property. To me that like another form of plagiarism and academic dishonesty. I say this because anytime you take someone’s thoughts, words, and work and not cite them as a source it’s stealing. Even though this particular poem did not have anything to do with academic work it is still wrong. I say that because the words from that poem came from my thought process and it took my time and energy to come up with it and I don’t think it would be right for someone to just up and steal it Face book or not.
