  • How do people do it?
    • Exclusion: Exclusion is the process of designating who is a member of the “in-group” and who is an “outcast.” In some cases, this is done by who has a mobile phone and who has not. Students, particularly girls, will also omit certain other girls from e-mail lists, chat room conversations and so on.
    • Outing: this includes the public display, posting, or forwarding of personal communication or images, especially communication that contains sensitive personal information or images that are sexual in nature.
    • Cyber-stalking: includes threats of harm, intimidation and/or offensive comments which are sent through personal communication channels. Frequently with cyber-stalking there is a threat, or at least a belief, that the virtual could become real stalking.
    • E-mail: One student sends a threatening e-mail to another, then forwards it to additional people.
    • Harassment: Sending hurtful messages to someone in a severe, persistent, or pervasive manner.
    • Instant Messaging (IM): several students log on to an IM platform (e.g., America Online's Instant Messenger) and simultaneously “slam” another.
    • Websites: bullies set up derogatory Web sites dedicated to one or more victims.
    • Impersonation: in other cases, students may impersonate other students and make unpopular online comments, even set up websites that include hate leading to the impersonated student being ostracized or further bullied in more traditional ways.
    • Voting/Polling Booths: Some Web sites offer users the opportunity to create online polling/voting booths, many at no cost. Cyber-bullies can use these Web sites to create web pages that allow others to vote online for "The Ugliest , Fattest, Dumbest etc. Boy/Girl at their respective schools.
