Fine, you can cyber bully
Freedom is not free ~ people die for it, people suffer for it, people put up with morons for it. I wish it wasn't that way, but it seems that's the deal. We can't be safe AND free ~ with freedom comes risk.
I think cyberbullying should be a crime if directed at minors and carried beyond a certain point. I would say that if that point is crossed and if charges are filed, there are ways to track the perpetrator. Personally, I have no problem with that. And when they are found, punish them; and if it's an adult cyberbullying a child, make them register as an offender and make that registration public so people in a community know who they are living near. Fair enough. But don't force millions of people to disclose what they don't want disclosed because one person in one hundred thousand is warped. And believe me, the government would love nothing more than to insist on this, as they whittle away our existing freedoms with every passing day.
