As someone who absolutely detests online bullying, due to finding her sister in the bath covered in blood and half conscious I can honestly tell you how brave it is of you to do this. I'm proud of you for apologising, much unlike some of the people you've hung around with the past few months. Well done for having the courage to say all this. Thank you for that.

Sorry for your loss.
I don't think you cyber-bullied as such.

Your were just having 'banter' and sometimes went a bit too far but not to the point where your constantly on someone making them feel ****.

Dont feel as though it was your fault or you caused anyone to do this. Be strong and be there for everyone who is suffering.

I keep thinking about this. Hope you're okay... I find that the forum really helps me when I'm feeling down. Try not to leave for good, there are some truly brilliant people on here

I've been thinking about this too and the only thought I come to is just how pathetic cyberbullies really are.

With everything that's happened on here over the last few months by individuals who take absolute pleasure in insulting people on their weight, looks, etc the only thing I feel for them is pity.

Last night, the friend of someone I am extremely close to committed suicide as a result of online bullying. Everyone I know has been hit extremely hard by it and it's my first real experience of the damage that cyberbullying can do to people

I feel as though I need to apologise for my own actions over the past few months. I may not have been directly involved with it but I still had an intense association with that.

Some of the comments I've heard made by the group I associated with were chillingly similar to the ones that have appeared to cause a young woman not two years older than me to take her life and that's unforgiveable. Picking on people because of their weight or appearance is something I always just took for granted, I didn't realise the hurt it could cause and this has hit me in the strangest way

Sorry to everyone for anything I have done, my actions were out of line and I'm pretty ashamed of myself.
You don't need to leave. We all do things we regret in life, but we try to learn from our mistakes. I'm so sorry about your friend and i hope you will come back when you feel better. Take care of yourself.

I deleted my earlier posts so I could start this again.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, I can't imagine the pain and sadness you must feel at losing someone close to you. It was nice of you to apologise and accept that you have been in the wrong. It's a learning curve and I'm sure it'll do you good.

This has been a really weird few days for me in the sense that I've lost and gained friends because of this very thread.

Much love to everyone who has been so supportive of me, I don't think people will understand just how much your kindness has put my mind to rest slightly.

It's sad that upon reading this one of the reactions from someone I counted as a friend was 'I'm going to make a multi tonight' but that person is well behind me now. I have made myself a target in the process but I like to think I am strong enough to take any 'drags' on the chin.

Thank you to everyone once more xx

Lets be real here, this very thread and the reason for it just shows you what kind of people you associated with. They are the lowest form of people around and the weakest. It's easy to 'bully' someone online but the reality of the situation are morons sat behind keyboards because they literally have no friends or lives and decide to take that out on other people because it makes them feel good. It's pathetic.

Whilst I agree with you Glenn that keyboard warriors are no better than real life bullies as in person I'm pretty sure they wouldn't act like that, this thread took balls to write and obviously has lost the OP some online friends so we should acknowledge it.

The shame for me is it took a tragedy to bring this up....but if lessons can be learned from it they should be.

If you've lost people because of this, it just goes to show what they are truly like. You're way better without them and well done for being brave enough to be on here without them.

I am behind you and hope you don't think I view you any differently than before. Don't think that just because one person has shunned you that it means everyone has. Pretty much all of us who were friends with you before still consider ourselves friends with you now.

I think it's a damn shame that one person actions can reflect so badly on a number of people. But I just wanted to let you know that I don't think any less of you and completely understand however you are feeling right now.

Wow look at Saint Glenn preach!, get off your bloody soap box!

I have given members and mods on this site grief by taking things to far and projecting my own failings on to them.


I would like to make a heart felt apology to all those that I have offended on this site.

Life is far to short to be spending to much time on sites like this one.
