YEah Im sorry I agree with some of the posters here. The parents are always looking for someone else to blame. I dont see why David Cameron has got to get involved again unless its a precursor to implementing higher level blocking of certain sites!

If a bunch of strangers told me to kill myself...............I'd think............erm........should I?  really?


Nah, I'd just you know............LEAVE THE WEBSITE




Darwinism I'm afraid to say


The sad thing is, were getting to the point now where if I were to tell someone to jump of a cliff, and they did, it would be me who ends up in prison.  THINK FOR YOURSELVES PEOPLE....BAAAAA

I don't think the problem at hand is that parents want websites shut down because they can't parent their kids. Whoever is going after these sites is doing so because these sites refuse to do anything about bullying. It sounds to me that multiple cases have been shown where they've reported abuse / bullying on the websites and the owners have taken no action. I mean all you who complain about people here on Neowin and bark when nothing is done about them, you can just leave this website can't you?

I'll keep saying, leave the site, use the block button and so on. The tools to avoid bullying are there why are they not used? To even call internet trolls bullies is taking it a bit too far. You'll get hate, it's the internet. Did I run crying to the police when someone posted a hate comment about me? No I used the block function that was provided.
