  1. Wasnt this an interesting story! More and more everyday we are hearing crazy stories on how people’s lives are being destroyed by way of the internet! I dont think that it is the INTERNET that can be harmful to your health but what WE SHARE ON IT CAN BE HARMFUL TO OUR HEALTH!

  2. This is a perfect example of the dark and hideous side of the Internet. Choose your friends wisely and use Social Media with discretion because it can and does get ugly. The Judges decision to protect on line harassment as free speech is pretty bizarre and I certainly would like to understand what was behind this decision. Encouraging people to engage in this type of behavior is totally crazy.
