here is the link.
I found this in another forum and was interested in how you guys would answer. Do you think it's right to say things that you wouldn't say to someone in front of their face just because you're hiding behind a screen?

Edit:Fixed the link.

Wow, I don't know who to feel sorry for in the article...they shouldn't have made fun of her.... she shouldn't have killed anyone.....

I don't think its right to make fun of someone or verbally abuse them. That is being a coward because you are hidden behind your computer screen and in your comfort zone. What those girls did was wrong, and thats the great thing about having Mod. - they will make sure nothing like that happens here.

Now, sometimes it is easier to tell people your feelings from online. I'm kinda shy when it comes to telling a guy my feelings and I would much rather tell him in an email or on AIM than to his face (especially when I don't know the reaction he will have) Also sometimes it is easier to talk things out from online, less chance of getting hurt either way.

look on the bright side, you will know what kind of a person your friend is
just dont go and kill him/her if the comment cuts through your feeling or something...

wow that is an interesting story. Talking about someone behind there back is not a good thing to do, but I am pretty sure everyone is guilty of it in one form or another. Just be sure the person you talk about isn't mentally unstable and goes around killing pople over it :)

What I think is even more disturbing is how old she is. This for some reason reminds me of Narutaru when the kids bullied hiro-chan if anyone knows what I'm talking about.

You have to keep in mind that this IS the internet, but still the honorable/right thing to do is at least try to be serious in areas where other people might take offense with certain things you say.

That girl has serious problems...nothing said about you online (with the possible exception of all your personal info, SSN, bank acct #s etc) gives you the right to kill another person, especially when the comments made were so superficial. Society is going to hell in a handbasket and we can only sit on the sidelines and watch, praying that our kids don't make the same mistakes we did.

@ fallen angel
that was probably one of the most disturbing anime episodes I have ever seen..but so closely related to this topic that it's freaky...I wish they had finished Narutaru

I'm inclined to agree with you on that.

It's disturbing that she could kill her classmate so casually but I do wonder why no one picked up on her emotional/mental instability especially since she had written a fan fiction based on Battle Royale. Maybe parents need to keep a closer eye on their children these days since they (the kids) are exposed to so much more media (through the Internet, television, etc.) than before.

Back on-topic, I think that regardless of whether you're chatting or interacting with people online or IRL, you should always be courteous and think before you speak/type/post.

Hmm...a case of extremly hurt pride. Thank goodness that dosen't really happen too often. In my opinion, ppl should be nice to other ppl anywhere anytime. But that dosen't always happen as we just saw....
