Hey Hetty and Bernadette? Can I get a panic button too? When my boss asks me in email to do something stupid and to do it now, that’s online bullying and harassment, isn’t it? What can I do in that situation?
How about we teach the children to tell their parents, if they feel threatened by something they’ve read or seen on line? How about parents taking some responsibility for monitoring their kids use on the internet?
“Triple-0 is the universal number for when the proverbial hits the fan, but what do you do online? When the proverbial hits the fan, you hit the panic button,” Johnson said.
Seriously… has anyone ever seen the “shit hit the fan” online? Maybe, if you’re on a scatological site, but I still think you can just kill the browser or – at worst – power off the computer. Maybe this is an appropriate place for goatse to be mentioned, as well. Don’t click the link! You’ve been warned!
Update: some cute stuff on ./ about this… “show the officer where on the dolphin he touched you”Â (Help – I’ve been touched on the dophin!);Â a suggestion to put a dolphin sticker on the power button (not a bad idea).
