Blogger Andy Carvin has urged active bloggers to declare today Stop Cyberbullying Day. His declaration was prompted by the case of blogger Kathy Sierra who in some way has prompted the ire of a group that has taken pleasure in harassing and threatening her. While I agree with the sentiment, I wonder about the benefits of the reaction. A rally focused on the evils of cyberbullying seems unlikely to threaten those who engage in such behaviors and may delight those who somehow might assume they have accomplished something in generating such a reaction. I also worry that a simplistic reaction by some may discourage access to blogs in those locations I continue to hope will see personal expression as a positive thing. Easy for me to say I guess – I am hassled by spammers, but not by bullies. Do read Carvin’s post.
