HE LIFTS US UP: ABUSE AWARENESS– Cyber-stalking and Cyber-bullying

Cyber-bullying and cyber-stalking

Cyber-stalking is defined as the use of electronic means to stalk or repeatedly harass an individual, a group of individuals, or an organization.

Cyber-bullying is defined as actions that use electronic means to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group, that is intended to harm another with the use of internet service and mobile technologies such as web pages and discussion groups as well as messaging with the intention of harming or discrediting another person.

Cyber-bullying vs. cyber-stalking– Sounds basically the same to me but I will clarify:

First, “cyber-stalking is a form of cyber-bullying.”
“The practice of cyber-bullying is not limited to children. The same behavior, identified as cyber-bullying, when involving adults refers to that abuse as cyber-stalking or cyber-harassment. These tactics used by cyber-stalkers are performed in public forums, social media or online information sites and are intended to threaten a victim’s earnings, employment, reputation, or safety. Behaviors may include encouraging others to harass the victim and trying to affect a victim’s online participation. It may include the making of false accusations or statements of fact, monitoring, making threats, identity theft, damage to data or equipment, the solicitation of minors for sex, or gathering information that may be used to harass.”

“Cyber-bullying is summarized as being cruel to others by sending or posting harmful material using a cell phone or the internet. It involves repeated behavior with intent to harm. It is perpetrated through harassment, cyber-stalking, or sending or posting cruel rumors and falsehoods to damage a reputation.”
“Cyber-bullying can be as simple as continuing to send e-mails or messages harassing someone, posting derogatory comments, or it may also include public actions such as repeated threats, sexual remarks, hate speech, or defamatory false accusations, ganging up and ridiculing a victim, and posting false statements as fact aimed a discrediting or humiliating a targeted person. It’s intentions also include to intimidate, control, manipulate, put down, falsely discredit, or humiliate the recipient.”
“A cyber-bully or cyber-stalker may be a person whom the target knows or an online stranger who is anonymous and may solicit involvement of other people online who do not even know the target.”

Legally, “cyber-bullying has been defined by The National Crime Prevention Council: “When the Internet, cell phones or other devices are used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person.”

As bloggers, we are all followed on-line by people that we don’t personally know. However, we should all treat each other with respect. We may not agree with what a blogger says, but then we really don’t need to even go to that blog if we don’t like it. We do not need to harass anyone. We do not need to tear anyone down. We do not need to call anyone names. Discussion is fine. Insults are not. Cyber-bullying has been defined as “when the Internet, cell phones or other devices are used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person”. We should all treat every blogger with the same respect that we would like to receive.

Dear Lord, I ask You to protect Your children from stalking, bullying, and any forms of harassment. Reveal all the evil that is done in darkness or in obscurity and bring it to the Light. Expose all hidden threats and bring peace and comfort to it’s victims. Reveal the truths that are hidden with deception and being conviction to the perpetrators. Turn hearts to You and help us all to treat each other with kindness and respect… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    The devil is stalking 24/7 that is why we have to “5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” 1 Peter 5:8.

    “But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.” 1 John 4:4

      Thank you so much for your support.Unfortunately, the enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy and many people allow Satan to use them to hurt others. All that we can do as believers is to keep praying for a mighty move of God to turn hearts to Him and fight this spiritual battle that continues for the souls of many. Thanks again and many blessings to you, my friend.
