Brave New Bullying—How to Protect Yourself from Cyberbullying

Excellent advice, and it encourages and inspires. “Starve them.” I’ve said the same thing. Thanks so much for this post.

I’ve talked before about how I train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Recently, I have started assisting with teaching the kid’s class. It is shocking how much time we devote to training kids to stand up to bullies. Bullies, in my opinion, are among the lowest known existing lifeforms. I wouldn’t want to insult cockroaches and fleas by drawing a comparison.

I’d love to say that we leave bullies behind when we are no longer kids, but I think bullying just gets worse and harder to fight. As writers, we deal with bullies a lot. Tragically, I’ve received many messages from semi-suicidal writers who left their dream profession because they had the misfortune of landing in the crosshairs of cyberbullies and no longer could endure the stress.

I have a hard time blaming them. I know what it is like to be willing to do anything to escape the torment.

Divide and Conquer Played By Harassers

Sub-titled:

Working another agenda when all others have failed.

I don’t generally publicly acknowledge anything that the harassers post about me on other blogs.  I do so now because an accusation involves another blogger.

Word Press provides insight for dispute resolution, stating:

“We think the right response to bad or offensive ideas is to speak out against them, not to censor them. Instead of asking us to suspend such a blog, please consider either responding in the blog’s comments or on a blog of your own, to set the record straight.”

This is to set the record straight.

To give some history, it might make sense to roll the clock back.  When I decided that justice for Trayvon was important to me, I sought blogs that shared that interest.  I looked for blogs that discussed evidence, stayed up-to-date with the release of discovery material, and the pre-trial proceedings.  Since the dead cannot defend themselves, I avoided all blogs that denigrate Trayvon.  By reading anti-Trayvon blogs, it didn’t take long to recognize the White Supremacists and sovereign citizenship ideologies that they project.   That in fact, all if not most of them have stated in some form or another a parroting of what Juror B37 told her now former literary agent; that is, that she found George Zimmerman not guilty “… due to the manner in which he was charged.”

2 Million people signing a petition and millions of Whites, Blacks, Latinos, Native Americans and Asians, young, middle-age and old, coming together protesting the lack of investigation and that Zimmerman had not been arrested, was just too much for those who want to take this country back to the 1800’s.  Read the rest of this entry
