Cyber bullying no childhood prank
Placeholder Image
If you mentioned “cyber bullying” to someone just five or six years ago, the words alone would have elicited a few giggles. Bullying is typically associated with picking on someone face-to-face, usually through hitting, name calling, teasing or taunting -- you know, methods that generally require some sort of direct contact. So it’s not too hard to imagine that several years ago, the thought of tormenting someone through a computer screen was somewhat laughable.
