I Should Not Have Done It
I recently wrote a post here at Wealthy Affiliate and almost immediately became the victim of a cyber bully.
There's over 30 comments by one "new" member, most of which are personal and racial attacks.
At first I didn't know who this "new" person was but a friend sent me a private message giving me some irrefutable clues to his identity. A person named Bob had left WA at the same time as this "new" person arrived. And my friend linked to some comments made by Bob which matched some of the comment's the "new" person had made on my post.
So I outed him by saying "Welcome back Bob".
I should have stopped there but I was angry. So I copied and pasted the same message in reply to all his comments.
Today I deleted almost all of them. I overreacted and for this I apologize.
Should we let cyber bullies get away with it? How can we stop them?
