Teachers want ban on cyber-bully pupils | Schools special reports |

Cyber bullying might be a serious problem. I suspect that it's mainly a made up problem...

I don't see how posting a picture of your teacher superimposed with pornography counts as 'cyber bullying' as opposed to slander. I'm sure children would understand that they would get in trouble for doing this, and would understand someone being punished for doing this.

Therefore I don't think this is news - it's easy to make fun of someone and I think you should expect to get in trouble if they're more important than you.

I'll see what happens if I doctor a picture of Tim and post it up here.


  • If a child draws a mocking picture of someone else and pins it up at school then that's bullying.

    If they post it up on the internet then it's still bullying, whether or not you prefix it with the word 'cyber'.

    Being published on the net may also make it slander (or possibly libel - I'm no lawyer), but it is still bullying nevertheless.
