  1. Cyberbulling has become such a horrible addition to our society and, like you said in class, it is really depressing to see the effect it has on kids, especially the middle schoolers. Middle School is already one of the worst age groups when it comes to teasing and making fun of each other, and when you add the ease of being anonymous through the internet it gets so much worse because, frankly, if no one knows that it's you, you have no reason to be tactful in your approach. And, even more importantly, kids don't see the importance of keeping nasty comments to themselves when it will have no ill-effect on them. I personally believe that sites that help promote cyber bulling are evil, through and through.
