I will quote from http://conservativehome.blogs.com/centreright/2009/03/cyberbullying-t.html March 03, 2009 a little, being that Conservative types are the absolute masters of what they pretend to oppose.
"The Mail today claims that facebook and twitter 'fuel' cyberbullying. While cyberbullying is a serious problem and sad reality [apart from when Guido does it!], He'd do this and this then in support of Adam Boulton's piece who quoted him with tags to the Gordon Brown story of "TWAT-WATCH"?
Is this a Conservative invention, or is it like the National Front's "RedWatch"? Sorry, I don't mean to raise a 'false dichotomy' :)[/edit]
"I would argue that these sites do not fuel it. Yes they offer the cowardly bully a medium through which they can torment (yes they do don't they Tory?), but to accuse them of promoting it is simply to shoot the messenger."
I am sorry, you agree with that Messenger then...
"The much more serious point here is that 50% of mental health problems begin in children under the age of 14 years and that will certainly rise if we don't take responsibility for protecting children while using this great software (so do it then Tory? Stop your fellow Conservative people calling me a Mongoloid and an Imbecile). There have already been tragic cases of suicide after experiences of cyberbullying [Yes it was suggested to me that I ought to do such once it was known that I was a Labour member and unable to talk/walk, thanks]. I would suggest there are three significant contributors to this neglect of responsibility." [Would one of those be being a Tory?]
"Firstly many [most?] parents don't or don't know how to set security & privacy settings for their children's computers, mobiles or social networking sites [which have an age limit of 13 years anyway]. The recent cybersurvey undertaken by Mr Manning at his school revealed a scandalous level of neglect by parents in this domain, both in the unlimited terms of access and time [more on that another post - and there is another clue to obesity in there too]. Whether through ignorance, weakness or deliberate some of this is another consequence of the undermining of parenting by Labour" (very well attacked, the heartstrings, children too, you do yourself proud.)
"Secondly, children are not taught how to be safe online when they use IT - surely this should a basic priority for teachers in the primary school PHSE curriculum." (put an early day motion forward then?)
"And lastly kids themselves need to behave responsibly, although a large part of this is having the emotional intelligence to be able to block unwanted calls and 'friends', and that often depends on whether their parents have bothered to instil it." (that would mean a) 'People that do not write on ConservativeHome blogs can't bring up their children well' or b) 'People that bother to write on ConservativeHome blogs can't spell to well (sic)?')
I hope that you think that I behave responsibly? http://www.brianmoylan.info/genoa/ http://www.valeofclwydclp.org.uk/index.php?a=br&br=rhyl?
"Picking up the pieces is unsustainable - psychiatry colleagues are currently being told to find cuts in their mental health service provisions."
WHEN DID THE TORIES EVER CARE ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH? YOU DESTROYED WHOLE COMMUNITIES WITH YOUR POLICIES. YOU DESTROYED A "SOCIETY"; YOUR GRAND LEADER, MARGARET THATCHER, DID NOT BELIEVE THAT "SOCIETY" WAS IN EXISTENCE.
This is from Tories worried about the state of the spend of National Government!!
Stop being so preachy and high-and-mighty and SUPPORT MEASURES that will sort the problem out? No? Do you just make the "problem" worse then?
This not Conservative or Republican, BUT LABOUR Government spends too much of our "tax dollars" ( ;)), on NOT CONSERVATIVE policy! You must be ashamed to be BRITISH, you must be ashamed when you pray tonight to Margaret, she was the Daddy. :(
As I post this link, your Tory types can again call me a terrorist and anti-Semetic if you like, bring it on. Ask that last Conservative doctor I responded to to join in, Rachael Joyce her name was. http://www.brianmoylan.info/blog.php?blogid=107#nietzscheandneurology
[update 24-03-2009]The BBC reports that retired Welsh world champion boxer Joe Calzaghe is launching an anti-bullying campaign, saying how online-bullying created more misery for many children.[/update]
