Cyber bullying encompasses any form of bullying which takes place online or through a mobile phone. Common cyber abuse includes blackmail, threats, abusive comments, nasty pictures and stolen identity.

Dear White People: Our State of Emergency
As you know, a pre-emptive State of Emergency has been called in Ferguson, Missouri as the country waits to hear if officer Darren Wilson will be charged with the murder of Michael Brown.
Let’s focus on another State of Emergency for a moment.
Like me, you are the beneficiary of unearned white privilege. I’m not going to insult your intelligence, nor should you insult other members of this club we were born into, by cataloguing the laundry list of data that point to the clear fact that, taken as a whole, people who are or who present as white, experience privileges that are regularly denied to people who do not present as white.
It is a fact. Deal with it.
It is from that place of privilege that you and I will watch events unfold when the grand jury comes back…

Cleveland, Ohio (CBS CLEVELAND) — The “hacktivist” group Anonymous attacked and brought down the city of Cleveland’s website after a police officer shot and killed a 12-year old boy who was carrying a toy gun.
Anonymous said on its YouTube page that the “untrained rookie officer” shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice “in cold blood.” The so-called hacktivist group took credit for taking down the city’s website after a manager of the city’s server called police early Monday morning to report the website was “under attack,” the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The Anonymous video post calls for the police department to release the name “of this child’s murderer” and demands to know why “non-lethal” options were not used with the boy.
This comes after Rice was shot by police outside a city recreation center on Saturday evening when they were called on reports of a “male threatening people with a gun,”…

Only a month till Christmas, kittens! You can get us anything from the Free Anons, WikiLeaks, or Welcome to Night Vale stores. Including Jeremy Hammond, Julian Assange, or Cecil the Radio Announcer. Even though he is gay and will never love me, but we could come to some mediagenic compromise and become the biggest power couple the Greater Desert Bluffs region has ever known!
Where was I? Right, having trouble focusing for some reason. Here are some news links to sharpen me up for the day. You might as well read them too.

Anonymous Documentary – How Anonymous Hackers Changed the World Full Documentary
Made by the BBC which I guess brings a sense of ‘properness’ this documentary discusses the hacking culture by mostly exploring the origin and activities of Anonymous. The documentary interviews current members of Anonymous and 4chan etc. It is a solid documentary and if you have 45 minutes to kill, sure – watch it! The section on Cyber Warfare was particularly interesting for us, not least because of our association with InfoWarCon 2014.

How Anonymous Hackers Changed the World
Published on Nov 24, 2014
” Alex Poucher, a heavily involved member of Anonymous, sat down with Frank Ancona, Imperial Wizard of the Traditional American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan this Sunday. The two groups- Anonymous and the KKK- have had a feud over the last month regarding how to respond to action in Ferguson. Following the release of a controversial flyer by the KKK, Anonymous members took over the KKK’s national Twitter account. While Mr Poucher and Mr Ancona did not discuss the hacking situation, they sat down and spoke to better understand each-other and mitigate some of the tension between both groups.
The conversation lasted about 20 minutes, but News2share is currently releasing these highlights as a representation of their exchange.
