Cyberstalking and cyberbullying ... spreading false information

I am doing research for a post about cyberstalking and cyberbullying, a growing problem with today's internet access that provides a platform for cowardly anonymous trolls. A particularly troubling form of cyberstalking is false accusations:
"False accusations. Many cyberstalkers try to damage the reputation of their victim and turn other people against them. They post false information about them on websites."
This is an interesting subject and there is much information out there as the problem grows and more cases are documented. It includes the coward who sends emails slandering someone who has no possibility of responding. Bullying is wrong whether it's on a school playground or in email or on the internet. Little bullies grow into big bullies.

Stay tuned....
