Here's a copy of my post from the General Conspiracies thread. I believe it has relevance to this thread as well because it addresses a social
I just wanted to point this out. It may be an example of an actual conspiracy, or just one of the many stupid things government researchers do that
make people believe crazy conspiracy theories in the first place. Cyberbullying is considered a cybercrime, okay. Right up there with
cyberterrorism, software piracy, and drug trafficking. Seriously? If I'm bored and decide to log on to my school's network for some good
old-fashioned bullying I could be arrested? But I'm just having fun, I'm just being young, cut me some slack.
What about all the real-world bullies out there? What happens to them? They end up working for major corporations and making buku bucks, that's
what. No way to find out the truth about how they socially interact with people, is there? No records of their conversations with others, are there?
This asymmetry in the treatment of real-world bullies vs. cyberbullies is absolutely ridiculous!!!
Are you wondering why this inequty exists? Are you wondering why that kid named Francis who experienced a massive growth spurt in elementary school
and picked on you every day during fifth grade is now making millions of dollars, his past completely hidden and inaccessible? It's because
real-world bullying creates natural leadership structures that the government can only dream about, while cyberbullying has no basis in reality. The
only person who benefits from cyberbullying is the cyberbullly. Real-world bullying benefits the bully and society. Some corporations even hire
bullies, known as goons, to take care of those who stand in the way of mergers. There are even organizations, i.e. the Mafia, based on bullying.
