Bunch of pussies, if you can't take a little bullying and you kill yourself for it, somehow I see it as a great thing, but those are my two cents.

I like how the picture shows the computer running Windows 7.

Actually it might be straight OSX, if you look at the first icon you'll see the Finder.

Lol! It's not 7, it's probably ObjectDock or RocketDock, I think RocketDock personally, I know this because I run it too :)

Good, throw the bitch under the bus.  People have to learn that they can not harass folks like this.  I don't care what penalty they come up with this, as long as it is harsh.

If someone is not old enough to deal with cyber bullying, they are not old enough to be using the internet

I couldn't agree more with you. In fact, we should probably give that woman the death pentalty and sentence all of her family members to 25 years hard labor at jail.

Seriously. how hard is it to click block on msn or myspace? Honestly...  As for this case, it was pretty immature to attack the 17 year old daughter, but that's just my two cents.

She posted the girl's personal information on Craigslist...

I should clear up that I meant in general cases of cyber bullying.

My guess is that you've never been a 17-year-old girl.  I haven't been either, though I did date couple...  Anyways.  It's not as easy as just "blocking the bitch" so to speak.  I seem to recall that in one case (maybe it's the MySpace one referred to in the article, I didn't look) a mother posed as a guy of similar age and played some rather insiduous mind games with a girl.  If anything, it's even harder for someone of that age to deal with bullies online than it is in school, because social networking sites enable bullies in a lot of ways (not that social networking itself is all bad - that's not what I'm saying at all).  The idiotic nonsense that goes on between teenage girls is bad enough; the last thing we need is adults that should absolutely know better on there screwing with kids' (mostly girls') self-esteem and the like.  I think four years could be a bit severe for this one (since most personal information is pretty publicly available anyway - it was just where she posted it that's the issue here), but adults (especially parents) that show this kind of judgement deserve to have the book thrown at them.

Well, I agree in the instance that this woman should have been charged with something because she did post personal info along with her "over-harsh" cyber bullying. However, where does one moderate such actions.
