Starting to feel quite uncomfortable with the language being used with regard to online abuse, bullying etc...
While I sympathise with the family of the girl who killed herself recently, the father is saying that the owners of websites where abuse or bullying takes place should be arrested for murder or manslaughter.
At the same time magazines like Zoo, Nuts etc are going to be placed into the Porno section of the news stand under a modesty cover.
Where has this sudden wave of Victorian prudishness cone from and what is happening to the right of free speech?
Surely if you are getting bullied on a website you report it to moderators, give as good as you get.... or simply switch off the computer and do something else?
How do people become so immersed in the online world that they are prepared to take their own life over cyber bullying?!
The language being used in the press is emotive to say the least, talk of the internet 'invading' every aspect of our lives, surely it's a choice whether one goes on these websites?
I can see this being used as the thin end of the wedge for the government to push through internet censorship and draconian laws on free speech unfortunately.
