Teens Spreading Hate Through Myspace

One 17-year-old boy posted one single question, "Who do you hate?" Over eight months the responses poured in totaling in 16 pages of 240 comments. This is a prime example of cyberbullying. It's not only teenagers partaking in the meanness, kids from middle school to college bully one another. See the whole story.

Kids need to learn etiquette online, just as they do offline. Comments like these don't go away. With search engines becoming more powerful many college admissions counselors and even employers will conduct searches on applicants. Is this the garbage that you child wants coming up associated with his/her name?
