Cyber Spacers

In his Roscommon Herald column this week, John Mulligan addresses the topic of Cyber Bullying, a fairly new phenomenon where people use online forums (Facebook) to make vicious attacks on others. "Adults are often both perpetrators and victims and the former can be more devious in the production of their brand of bile. Gardai now take this brand of abuse seriously and will investigate the source of nasty communications."
