    I guess I'm more referencing the whole social media thing. It is astounding to me that people would view what is posted as sufficiently relevant they would take their own life over comments someone would post against them.
    social bullying on social sites has become one of the biggest issues our kids face

    not only do they have to deal with the same bullies everyone dealt with growing up....but now they have to deal with the anonymous tweeters, and posters who love to hate

    unless you want your kids growing up in a cocoon, it is something every parent has to deal with

    i love that some of these people will be outed....and ridiculed and punished by family, friends, jobs, schools, etc

    for some reason too many believe causing pain to others on these sites is "fun"

    i want to take the fun out of it entirely.....and i want them to think about what happens if they get busted for posting the vile, vicious crap they post

    Or to expose them and get them fired... that is my #1

    I wondered that too. The article said he just did a simple internet search. But after I saw the tweets it was easy to see how he tracked them down because they left a lot of clues. And I must say...the sicko's deserved to be punished.

    Didn't you read the article?


    Shillings had long list of people and he gave them all a chance to apologize and I guess most of them did except for the two that he's made public.

    My understanding is there are more than the two who have yet to apologize. Why'd you have to be a buzzkill?

    I completely agree with everything that Shilling did in the aftermath of the comments that were made about his daughter.

    But as something of a celebrity (maybe major, maybe minor, I don't know because I couldn't care less about baseball and know nothing about the guy) it was kind of stupid of him to "out" his daughter's choice of school on public social media while posting publicly available photographs of the girl.

    Especially given the fact that, by his own admission, he's got something of a big mouth when interacting with his fans and followers and posting his opinions on the Internet.

    Dumbass.

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Twitter is troll land. It should come as no shock.
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    Sure there is. The OP of this thread is an example. Find them, out them, and explain to them that internet sexual threats come with real world consequences.
