There's No Such Thing as "Cyberbullying"

Anil Dash, Website, Oct 04, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I thought I might write something longer on this, and maybe I will one day, but I would like to underscore Anil Dash's argument that there is no such thing as cyber-bullying. It's just bullying, and the internet is just one more instrument used by the bully, no more a special form of bullying than is the locker door or the telephone used to harass the unfortunate in earlier years. And, importantly, "blaming technology for horrendous, violent displays of homophobia or racism or simple meanness lets adults like parents and teachers absolve themselves of the responsibility to raise kids free from these evils."
