PETITION CALLS FOR 'CHARLOTTE'S LAW'
Following the death of former model and television host Charlotte Dawson, an online petition is circulating to make changes to laws regarding cyber bullies.
"The internet has broken down many barriers, including cruelty and malice. A virtual society has grown up in which people believe they know people they've never met, and normal social constraints don't apply. This gives malice free rein, with no fear of repercussions ;on the internet malice is instant. Your flippant nastiness can strike without a name and address for possible repercussions to reach you, which is why cowards prosper there.
It's a hard fact to swallow, but swallow you must: some people won't like you. I mean, really really won't like you – and never will.
Incredible as it seems (we are all nice, surely) these people are prepared to be as nasty as they can get away with, which is a good reason not to read about yourself on the internet, engage in chat rooms and Twitter, or, for that matter, read your hate mail. That way lies madness.
It's not arrogance that drives my belief, but experience of life. Once you have a public profile people mistake you for public property that can be tagged and vandalised, like town halls and railway stations.
They want you to wear their unkindness like an indelible scribble on a bus stop, and to pee on your paintwork."
"The internet is about as reliable as a drunk guy at a pub writing with Texta on the toilet wall." Dr Karl.
Sometimes Real Life intervenes and it takes a while to update my current story, thanks for your patience. I do endeavour to do my best to update regularly.
If you hate what I write, there's this little cross at the right hand top of the page, click on it and the page will shut and it will be like none of my stories ever existed.
Don't waste your time leaving long rants about how much you hate my stories because I don't read them.
Go rant about something real, like underage girls being forced into marriage with fully grown men and often dying on their wedding night. Let your hate count and make a difference rather than be wasted on cyber bullying.
I am NOT an author, I am simply that girl who used to get her essays printed in the school magazine and year book who writes silly stories now and again to amuse herself.
If you are also amused by them, cheers.
If not, there is a rumour going around that there are thousands of other stories here written by better people than me, put on your big girl panties and go find some of them.
