As much as I can’t stand…

Khopkinsatie ‘flaming‘ Hopkins, there comes a point where I have to say I don’t agree with the threats that are being made against her.

According to the Daily Star people are wishing this woman dead… and much worse.. if comments can get any worse. Continue reading

The war on Twitter: Social media sites threaten justice system, warns Attorney General

See on Scoop.itOn My Front Porch

Twitter and Facebook users are to be warned about the dangers of prejudicing high-profile prosecutions in a historic move designed to make contempt of court laws fit for the social media age.

Bren‘s insight:

I said it wouldn’t be long before something was done.. Trouble is he can release all the guidelines he likes.. but until some people are hauled before the courts and dealt with harshly then nothing is going to change.

Did Leveson really go far enough?

The Decapitation of Facebook

Yfacebook1es we are all on it.. aren’t we? Facebook. The social networking site where you can share videos, pictures, chat to your friends and now watch a beheading.. that is providing you condemn it.

Facebook has upset quite a few people.. including old DishFace, who turned to Twitter to show his condemnation at the decision made by Facebook.. Yes Disface wrote on his Twitter timeline. Continue reading

Just give them….

ACuddlesvery big hug the next time you see your child or children.. Tell them no matter what they do, you might not approve and you might tell them off but reinforce in them that you will never stop loving them.

A mother’s love for her child is unconditional and the instinct to protect doesn’t lessen as they grow older, in truth, it intensifies.   Sometimes being a mum is hard work.. there are times when you want to say something but know you can’t. Continue reading

Cyberbullying

Aask.fmnother week and another death due to cyberbullying.  Yes a young girl decided enough was enough and hung herself.. all because some mindless feckin idiots thought it was OK to harass and persecute a person online.

Well it is not.. another family this week are having to face the future without someone they love being close to them.. Another family is going to have to lay to rest their child… not due to illness or a tragic accident but due to mindless thugs thinking that it is acceptable and perfectly OK to tell someone to go and kill themselves.

Twitter Button – Will it work?

Ntwitter-adds-report-abuse-buttonow after witnessing first hand the abuse on Twitter I did wonder how long before something would be introduced, where people can report directly from a tweet that they are being abused.

Yes Twitter have had a report abusive user forms to fill in, but unless you have the link saved as a bookmark you have to keep finding the relevant page in order to report someone.

So will the new report button work? Continue reading

Daily Prompt: It’s a Text, Text, Text, Text World

Well today’s Daily Prompt is about text speak… How do you communicate differently online than in person, if at all? How do you communicate emotion and intent in a purely written medium

TEXT SPEAKWell how do I communicate? Well to be perfectly honest, I can’t get my head around all this abbreviating and using the likes of  BBL, BRB or CUL8R…thank god for the proverbial internet slang guide… where you can check out what all these abbreviations mean. Continue reading

Too young to die

cyberbullyingYou know there is nothing worse than getting a Google alert of picking up a paper to read another child has committed suicide to bullying.

It must be every parent’s worst nightmare, especially if they know their child is being bullied and there is nothing they can do to stop it.

They have been to the school, they have kept their child away from school and still the harassment and torment continues. Continue reading

Was it worth it????

leveson1The last figure quoted for the costs of the Leveson-Inquiry-costs-July-2011-to-June-2012.. and I doubt if this is the final figure.  When all the costs are added together I suspect they will total closer to the £5 million mark.

Yesterday David Cameron gave this speech to the House of Commons: Continue reading
