Update December 10, 2007: It turns out that the Meganhaditcoming blog is a hoax. (see the comments for this post.
Wired.com: Cyberbullying Suicide Stokes the Internet Fury Machine
Crazy, crazy. What is even more nuts to me is to see Lori Drew (the mother behind the cyberbullying case who posted the notorious myspace profile), created another blog to attack the neighbor girl AFTER the child had committed suicide called MeganHadItComing.
I try not be hateful, but I think agree with the Wired.com folks. If the law won’t prosecute these folks, then maybe social shunning does make sense. I don’t know what the answer is, but it seems insane that these folks can get away with this.
On the other hand, the Wired.com story also points out the folly of cyberjustice and how quickly it can go awry. I don’t think anyone (except for nutjobs) think that death threats and bricks thrown though windows are a good idea.
