The pen is mightier than the sword, and the keyboard is the pen of this generation. According to a recent article by the Associated Press, a new website, JuicyCampus.com, promotes anonymous gossip that is literally destroying students’ lives. In previous generations you knew who was bullying you, and gossip was relatively contained. Today cyber bullying is so easy and powerful that it has resulted in lowering self-esteems, soiling reputations, and even the suicide of a young teenage girl. I’m not typically in favor of censorship, but when there’s malicious intent someone needs to intervene.
