Website lets kids report school bullies incognito


I found this link on the Drudge Report.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081014/ap_on_re_us/bullies_internet

What will be done with the anonymously provided information?

WIll accused bullies have to defend themselves every time?

Or maybe  worse, will the info just accumulate in a file somewhere and then be sprung on the accused bully?

How will they prevent abuse of the system by ‘victims’?

    I certainly agree with your questions re: said reporting. Scarey way of trying to deal with a serious, but age old problem. More “big brother” stuff I fear.

    Folks who feel they are victims have a responsibility too for the ‘bully problem’. They can’t expect change if they continue to insist on 100% safety and give all responsibility to the authorities, who are then set up to be bullies. It begs the question, who will receive reports on them? Will they tolerate incognito reports?
