If I were Lauren, I would try explaining it to my friends, as honestly, that usually does work rather than retaliating back to those particular people as I foresee it will cause more problems. This will cause more people to "rally" together to flame her all at once which leaves her helpless and outnumbered, and worse, people might lose trust in her, as compared to before. If she enlightens the situation by telling them what exactly happened, for sure at least 1 person has to be bound to trust her to know that she did not do it. Trustworthy friends are worth to be friends.
If i were Lauren, I would have reported it to my parents and school if the messages were coming from students of my school. Retaliating to the bully would make me as wrong as the bully, hence retaliating instead of reporting would not be my first choice.
If I were Lauren, I would not have given my username and password to Susan, no matter how close she was to me, or how trustable she may have seemed. I would also have told my parents about this matter, and let them handle it according to the severity of the situation. I would not cyber-bully her, for example posting nasty things about her on social networking sites or anything else similar to that, as it would get me in trouble too.
If I were Lauren, I would first tell Susan to stop all her actions. If she still persists, I would inform my parents and my teachers about what happened. I would not resort to cyber-bullying as revenge as it would only make the make the matter worse.
If i were Lauren, i will already inform my parents the first day they started ignoring me. Besides that, I will also confront Susan in a nice way and asked her why she did that to me. By confronting her in a nice way, the outcome will not be that sever. No, my actions will not be cyber-bullying.
If I were Lauren, I would change all my online accounts (eg email, facebook etc.) and change my handphone number. Then I would request to my parents for me to change schools. These actions are not cyber-bullying.
I would have ignored the nasty comments and notified my parents and teacher that someone set me up. I would not hVE INSULTED the bully back as i would be in the wrong too
If I were Lauren, I would immediately call the police for help if the situation gets very serious. I would also try to block and ignore everyone that has been bad to me. My actions would not be cyber-bulling as I am defending myself from imminent cyber-bulling attacks.
I would change my password at once and would inform my teachers and parents as I would really want to find out what is actually going on that caused everyone to be ignoring me. I would not cyber bullying as I know how is the feeling when being cyber-bullied and being ignored by everyone just because I was impersonated.
I would tell the teachers about the situation I am facing and ask them for help. My actions might be cyber-bullying a little because I would be stressed out and would not be able to think properly about what is right or wrong and go straight on having revenge.
If I were Lauren, after receiving those nasty messages, I would immediately inform my parents, and get the school to close the message board. If the scenario gets worse, I will engage the police. I would not use cyber-bulling as a tool to fix the problem.
If I was Lauren, I would have not have given my personal information, such as my username and password, to her even though she was my best friend. We should not assume that your friends would always be your friends as they can decide to backstab or blackmail you by threatening to post your private information by entering your account. We should always keep our password and username personal and never divulge such information to anyone, no matter how close you are with that person.My actions would not be considered cyber-bullying as I am not hurting or insulting anyone by doing what I have done.Lucas Chia
I would ignore the insults and sue the bully after finding out who the bully was. I would also ask adults I know for help when I get bullied, whether it's cyber bullying or not. I could also block the insults if they were could be blocked. My actions are not a form of cyber bullying as I did not hurt the person at all.
I would report the matter to the school, my parents, and if necessary, the police. I will also block the email adresses that I know and convince everyone that the rumors are not true. No, my actions will not be cyber-bullying.
if i was lauren , i would report this to the proper authorities instead of insulting her back, as this would give her a reason to report me.after that, i would use my account to clear up the air , and flag his/her account for hacking.
I would report this to the teacher but if it does not work, than I would write a letter and personally give it to the principle. If all else fails, the police will be the final choice. No it will not be counted as cyber bullying as others are not involved.
