ANTISOCIAL NETWORKING: AMANDA TODD COULD HAVE BEEN SAVED!
























ANTISOCIAL NETWORKING

I have written some blogs on this subject matter that you may have read on my blogsite or through the Synapse Circuit website. However, through the shockwaves of Amanda Todd’s suicide, which should be classified as murder, I feel compelled to write this article.


CYBERBULLYING
Cyberbullying is nothing new! Ever since we’ve been able to join chatrooms and forums there have been many a “flame war” where chatroom and forum members hurl abuse at each other for whatever reason. Usually the reason or reasons is / are so idiotic it beggars belief! If you have read my blogs on the subject matter you’ll know that I have experienced people trying their hardest to bully me within forums, owned by software companies, for no reason other than I run successful online magazines. The usual dumb thing that I get accused of is being a “spammer” when turns out that I am nothing of the sort! In fact a lot of people either do not have a clue at what “spam” is or they make it up as they go along! When people decide to make things up as they go along you can bet that jealousy is behind it. And with jealousy comes spitefulness.

I have learned that there are some genuinely retarded people out there. No, I don’t mean that in the usual insulting manner. Absolutely not! It is unfortunate fact that there are people who are not able to reason both on or offline. That’s a fact! I have painstakingly gone into great detail with those who, as it turns out, aren’t able to understand simple logic and reasoning. It is a scary and mind boggling thing to experience when individuals cannot understand simple concepts and take things way out of a context that you wouldn’t have imagined. One can quickly get into a situation whereby all of a sudden you are dealing with an equally retarded mob or clique!

The best thing one can do is to not waste one’s time with such folk.

WITH TECHNOLOGY COMES A GREAT RESPONSIBILITY
With the technological advancement of communications we are able to have a visual presence in the form of pictures and video… Most of the planet has taken out some form or forms of cyber-real estate i.e. Facebook, Twitter, etc. Whenever we present ourselves in the digital-flesh, if you will, we open ourselves to vulnerability unknown. This notion is exacerbated by the fact that almost anyone can get a hold of our personal details! Facebook’s security is a joke and any one of us could be the punchline! Facebook has made some terrible faux pas with our private information!
