    I'm tired of this cyber-bullying stuff that's been made by media... if you really care what people say with text over the web then you have some issues to begin with. Who cares what they say, you don't know them from any other stranger on the street. And if you escalate it to using YouTube videos to "get back", then it's your problem now, you deserve it.

    And this is a lesser example of the "news" media being awful this week.



    Also, who cares? This is just another dumb story fueled entirely by people being idiots. End of the day, learn a lesson and try to not get trolled in the future. Also, posting webcam made videos of yourself talking is just asking for trouble.

    From what I have been hearing from other users on Youtube, this Jessi person apparently started all this. Regardless, I think we can agree that her daddy isn't the brightest blub here. The cyber police, are you freaking kidding me?

    I love how they instantly bring up Internet Anonymity and "the rap music" being the problem, when it's obviously a spoiled brat discovering the internet for the first time and thinking they can do whatever they want.

    To the little 11-year-old attention whore: If you're going to stir the hornet's next by running your mouth like that on YouTube/Stickam/Facebook/MySpace, then of course you're going to get bullied. And you would never guess how little it actually matters in the long run. Take some responsibility for your own actions, and don't go crying in a little corner over something the people from the scary and dangerous internets tell to you. I don't care if you're eleven. Man up, and stop the bitching and moaning.

    This is what happens when someone wants to be an internet tough guy. You get put in your place and made another example of, end of story. I love how the parents are defending her actions instead of teaching her a lesson about this. Lazy Parenting FTL!

    I thought it was a very pragmatic report. Obviously, the worst thing to do when it comes to anon internet bullying is to make yourself more visible. Minors are especially vulnerable because of their naivete, so it's up to their parents to protect them. The first half of the report really only serves to show how to do it very wrong.

    What would the other side of this be, exactly? Clampdown on internet anonymity? Real cyber police?

    The other side was she was camwhoring and posting naked pictures of herself on the internet.

    I'm serious.

    She also made one of those "asking for it" videos.



    She'll pop a glock in your mouth and make a brain slushie.

    ah yes, forget the kid being underaged on youtube, forget what shes saying, or spamming herself around

    though i dont agree with what the kid got, her parents are to blame, if you dont understand the internets (and rely on backtracing cyberpolice who dun goofed), well i think you fail epically as parents

    Both sides of the story are ridiculous IMO. People shouldn't be immature enough to harass an eleven year old girl (Regardless if she's bitchy or whatever) and they (Girl+Parents) shouldn't have made a massive deal out of a few trolls. Both sides have awoken sleeping giants on the opposite side, they're out and now they're beating the shit out of each other causing even more chaos. Two words: BLOCK and REPORT

    EDIT:

    Oh my God, I'm so frigging getting one of these

    I'm aware of what she did, I was on /b/ as this was all unfolding. I think the report made it clear enough that what she was doing was inappropriate, and that she really should have had better adult supervision. I simply don't think going into detail about her offenses would have benefitted the story any more. Clearly what she did was wrong, and what her parents did wasn't helpful, but that doesn't mean she deserved the massive retaliation she got for it. Learning to avoid these situation on the internet was the intent of the report, not whether she deserved it or not.

    WTF? I really don't know who to blame. The parents should have told her never to do that, and she should have the common sense not to do something like that regardless of her age.

    The internet is serious buisness, and people need to understand that sooner rather than later.

    :trolls: <--- gee, how hard a rule is that to follow?

    the parents should have beat her sorry ass (on camera) and never once supported her videos.
    the parents are as guilty as the brat.

    and did ya notice how eloquent she was on her vidz (when she wasn't thinking and it was "live") yet when asked a question, she spoke like a medicated 2nd grader?
    she's a poseur.
    what i don't get is how she isn't in juvie when schools are suspending kids for waving food like a gun and she's detailing how she'll execute people.

    she deserved the bullying.
    she got what she asked for.

    now the other cases where cyber-bullying is unprovoked, something should be done.
