Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
But perhaps you'd like to tell us what a "harasser" is, because at the moment this appears to be "anyone who doesn't agree with me, mocks me or quotes facts which contradict my beliefs"
The rest of the Internet
The geek --- whose rules of play are under fire these days --- can be rather too quick to claim that he speaks for the Internet as a whole.
Pew Research asked respondents about six different forms of online harassment. Those who witnessed harassment said they had seen at least one of the following occur to others online:
60% of internet users said they had witnessed someone being called offensive names
53% had seen efforts to purposefully embarrass someone
25% had seen someone being physically threatened
24% witnessed someone being harassed for a sustained period of time
19% said they witnessed someone being sexually harassed
18% said they had seen someone be stalked
Those who have personally experienced online harassment said they were the target of at least one of the following online:
27% of internet users have been called offensive names
22% have had someone try to purposefully embarrass them
8% have been physically threatened
8% have been stalked
7% have been harassed for a sustained period
6% have been sexually harassed
In broad trends, the data show that men are more likely to experience name-calling and embarrassment, while young women are particularly vulnerable to sexual harassment and stalking. Social media is the most common scene of both types of harassment, although men highlight online gaming and comments sections as other spaces they typically encounter harassment.
Young women, those 18-24, experience certain severe types of harassment at disproportionately high levels: 26% of these young women have been stalked online, and 25% were the target of online sexual harassment.
While most online environments were viewed as equally welcoming to both genders, the starkest results were for online gaming. Some 44% of respondents felt the platform was more welcoming toward men.

Sharp's strategy may backfire, for a scammer, upon being intercepted by a scam prevention system, may perceive that the person who he is calling as more likely to be vulnerable
The automated system that may have been put in place by family members, legal guardians, social services or the police?
Not worth the risk.
Managers who use schedules to push workers harder are shitty managers and will likely end up with a bad product. That is the sort of problem that fixes itself.
From personal experience, you can have a shitty manager that is overworking your entire team, but the team still makes a quality product and that manager looks good despite being shitty.
You should explain how you had no problems.
I only had to install some pre-requesits, which is no different from me needing to install the C++ runtime on Windows for games of that era which weren't by the way, included in the installer, nor documented officially by EPIC nor Microsoft.
Pre-requiests were trivial to install, eiher copy paste a single line and hit enter or use the graphical package mangaer interface.
I had no other problems at all. If Linux was moving a target, installing a few libraries provided by the system wouldn't be the only issue I would have encountered.
People who are going to actually commit suicide don't talk about it on Facebook, they do it, these people are rarely on Facebook in general.
I had it hammered into me a very long time ago that the root of rational --- productive --- debate is to expose the evidence that supports your arguments.
My parents in their 50's are using Linux full-time even though they don't know they are
Every Linux conversion story posted to Slashdot reads like this. It has been that way since the site was launched.
