In either case any harassment ***, religous, race, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation etc. falls in the category of harassment.
note: I am not blaming the victim, "she was dressed in a provocative manner" is not a defense in my mind, but if its an issue, why do you have a name that incites it? seems counter productive
95% of the problems on the internet (id theft, harassment, bullying, predators) are caused by people putting personal info on the net.
Hell, I dont think anyone could even find any info about myself on the web that wasn't either fake that I put up, or information that I have already given people **** for putting up about myself. +1 for good parenting
And on that note, I just want to add that facebook is the biggest issue, even if you are set to privet, its not hard to figure out where you are and who you know just by looking at pic's people you know have put up, after that its all a mater of inventing a personality and getting close to you through one of your friends
