dA's affinity for physical violence disturbs me.

:iconvaz612:
Vaz612 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I recently made a thread on the forums here complaining about a recent ordeal of cyber/psychological bullying I went through that's recently started up again.

At least 50% of the comments are telling me I need to stop being a 12 year old whiny little girl and wreck them.

And I stated that I'm 19. Beating someone up when you're 19 is called "Assault and Battery".

Does the law just not ring any alarms for people anymore? Have we really become that desensitized to violence? Or is this a freak occurrence on this site? Either way, it's definitely a sign that something isn't quite right. o_o;

Pay no mind to it, it's just the nature of the internet. People get some kind of confidence from being behind a computer screen where no physical harm or retaliation can come from their attacks. One can only empower them by reacting to it.

The only reason I still haven't beaten up two of my class mates is because I don't want a criminal record or to be kicked out of school. Otherwise I would have loved to grab them by the hair and smash their faces into the wall until they bled.

Ok, calm down. You have to be aware this is the internet, there has some awareness to it:

and that mostly there is nothing you can do about it, other then to block or ignore and just raise more awareness. Usually the gratification of not just cyberbullies but also trolls to react to the bullying or practical joke.

Its not really violent as I though you would, but cyberbullying can escate to thoughs of suicide. ANy type of bullying and putting a bandaid on it saying kids are just being kids isn't really going to help. But really, cyber bullying is too small to be something concerned about it.

The best thing to do, is never log on again.

Then you kill the fuckers, and you hide all evidence properly. Don`t forget to kill the dog too. After you have had raunchy bestiality with it, of course.

"assault and battery" involves actual (attempted) harm to your person. :confused:

Beating someone up who makes death threats is generally covered under self-defense law. You just have to throw the punch right after they threaten you in person.

Oh, by the way, DEATH THREATS ARE ALSO ILLEGAL.

Don't take it to serious. Like everyone else suggested just learn to defend yourself or just shrug it off.

I read that as "dA's furaffinity".

Learn to defend yourself, is all I can say. You don't even need to use violence, just by using the right words, being intelligent and showing dominance, you can make them stop annoying you.

The block feature is there, too, waiting for you to use it.

Easy mistake, I suppose.

Yeah, his dA account was the one medium of contact I didn't cut off. That has now been corrected. And I'll try taking that advice, should they mount some sort of attack towards my character or social standing again.

When someone is attacking you in any shape or form; using violence against them is justified.
"Law" has got nothing to do with it. Our society's sense of justice is weak.

Sure it does.

Tolerance and pacifism are one thing. You (should) still have the right to get on the offensive if someone is attacking you for no reason.
If we tolarated every asshole who gets off by harassing and bullying others, then we would (in a way) be supporting such wrong behaviour.

You can't wait for others to deal with your problems for you, either.
It never works. You can to either take care of the bullies yourself or allow them to keep bullying you.
You can not (and, in my opinion, should not) rely on your teacher to punish the kid that's hitting you - or rely on "law enforcement" to punish that group of racists who keep attacking people on the streets. It never ever works.

Physical violence should not be the immediate response to verbal harassment. But it should be A response if said harassment doesn't stop when you want it to stop.

I said verbal attacks shouldn't be responded to with physical violence.

I don't know you got the idea that law enforcement never works.
It doesn't always, but sometimes it does. Why attack a group of racists and risk being hurt or killed if you can just call the cops? We pax taxes for law enforcement, we might as well use it if our only other option is violence. Maybe the cops won't be able fix the problem, but what have you got to lose?

While I'm less opposed to violence against constant harassment that you can't walk away from, there are usually better ways to deal with it.

The policework example came from personal experience. I live in Greece. Over the past year there has been a big movement of neo-nazi attacks on illegal and legal (!) immigrants. Cops either show up after everything is over, don't show up at all or show up and help the racists (a case of that was even covered by CNN).
I've personally seen policemen saluting neo-nazies as they pass by.

People say a lot of things on the internet they probably wouldn't be inclined to say/do IRL.  I would honestly not take anything they said seriously and assume they were advocating actual physical violence.  I realize it can be hard not to take things people say seriously with strong emotions are involved.  Also, if you did post this thread in Complaints...um, that's the last place I'd go for sympathy or calm, reasoned responses.  I'm sure you've been on the internet long enough to know what "lurk more" means.

I don't appreciate you taking my words disturbingly out of context for the sake of continuing your overly sensitive tirade over to a forum that's less likely to treat you as the girl you are, kiddo.

I called you a 12 year old whiny little girl because you are a 12 year old whiny little girl, it has no relation to beating people, in fact I consider violence to be a rather childish action when dealing with confrontation.

Grow the fuck up, you nancy.

Ohh, you child. I was the only person who called you a "12 year old whiny little girl" and your reply to me was pretty much a TL;DR for this thread. You might lie about your intentions, but your posts are already there proving otherwise.

Also, thinking this is anywhere near angry just further proves how much of an overly sensitive little girl you are. :lol:

Seriously. I know one person on the internet to commit suicide, and I have the location of her burial plot on the cemetery's index and her mother's contact information. :slow: But do you know how many people I know who's claimed to commit suicide but totally didn't? If you do tell me, because I lost track. The last time it happened was last week, and it was a fairly popular forum reg to boot.

I've known countless! It's ridiculous.I love their "I cam back from death!" stories, being in hospitals and all that jazz. I don't keep record though, I also don't recall any reg doing that recently, mind giving me the scoop? :la:
