Have you ever been the target of cyber-bullying? What was your reaction?
Oh, hell yes. I've been flamed, de-famed and stalked, all in the name of 'fandom.' There were outrageous things said about me, either behind my back or to my internet face. Five years ago it made me shaky and paranoid. Now I just shrug. But I still have a hard time trusting, and I figure there were some real people out there I didn't believe because of the others.
The anonymity of the internet brings out the worst in people. You have to be smart and you have to be careful. But most of all you need a thick skin.
For me it's been a reminder of what I learned as a little kid: "Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me."
