I am not a computer expert or programmer. I was thinking about the recent attention to cyber bullying. Could a code be written and stashed in a remote location of the operating system, that could be added to a computer,: this would bring up a short message on cyber bullying under certain circumstances (like logging onto a social network or something else) maybe directing the user to click on a link, that would provide updates on prosecution of cyber bullies, or a counselor site about it. Maybe sometimes a message like "cyber world IS the real world. If you can't say it in a room full of your peers, don't say it"

Anybody have a cyber solution to cyber bullying? I don't think it will be solved without the talented "geek" and cyber world getting involved. But how?

Hope this stirs some thoughts.

I don't see how an automated message would fix anything. While cyberbullying has the anonymity of being performed online, bullying has been around for years. Simply logging into a social networking site isn't enough to trigger a warning; that would make many of us the target of those warnings, when most of us are innocent.

This is the problem with Facebook. So many problems take place there and Facebook doesn't give any warnings or anything. I think if someone signs up under the age of 18 it should tell them that cyber bullying will result in your Facebook account being banned, or something along the lines.
