Have you ever been a victim of cyber bullying?

"No, Cyber-bullying doesn't really have the same impact as real bullying. Since there are no physical effects of bullying, "victims” can just ignore a cyber-bully's verbal assault. If someone tries to cyber-bully another, that person can just sign off the internet anyways, or even create another identity and get revenge of the bully."
-senior Michael Li

"No, but I have been a cyber-bully. You have to be tough because it's a dangerous world in cyber space. It's a question of who can be tougher the longest"
-sophomore Emanuel Waktola

"A lot of people make up screennames just to harass their classmates. I have been on both ends of this, but it has never gotten to the point where one person feels endangered or reall offended. If the fun and games get too far, you can just block the other person."
-sophomore Jason Meer

"I have never been a victim of cyberbullying because I don't chat and I hardly IM. Even if I IM, I only talk to the people I know."
-freshman Hizkias Neway

"I have never been a victim of cyberbullying. I am careful to not give out my screenname to random strangers or post it in places where stalkers could get it. I think people who are victims of this are somewhat to blame, because they are the oens who advertise their screennames."
-freshman Pia Nargundkar
