+ - computer geeks are the new schoolyard bullies

Submitted by

vaporland writes "This story from Reuters states that computer geeks are the new schoolyard bullies. To quote the article:

'Bullies are no longer content to taunt their victims in the playground but are turning to cyberspace, according to Canadian researchers.
They are using e-mail, text messaging and social networking sites in new forms of victimization.
Cyber bullies are even forcing their girlfriends to undress in front of webcams and then sharing the images with others online.'

I for one welcome our new geek overlords — now if I could only find a way to get even with that towel-popping guy from my eighth grade gym class . . ."

Science is to computer science as hydrodynamics is to plumbing.
