Shit Disturber — 306

A new page has popped up on Facebook in the last week or so that goes under the name cited in the headline to this post. What it appears to involve is people from in and around Regina posting pictures of friends/acquaintances/enemies on the site with captions that may or may not be truthful/funny/hurtful. As is the nature of Facebook, other people are then free to wade in and offer comments and observations of their own related to the photos and the other commenters.

Judging from the comments sections of various posts, the Regina Police Service has become involved and is inviting anyone who has been a victim of what it describes as a “bullying page” to contact them.

If you want to check it out on Facebook, here’s a link to the page.

Tuesday morning update. It looks like the page linked to above has disappeared. There are two similar pages here and here though.

  1. Wow man, Generation Z. Can’t knock ’em cuz I don’t know ’em, but they have no barriers…

  2. Wow that’s awful. There was a (somewhat) comparable website when I was in highschool called Sask Rumours. It was a message board that one teacher referred to as “pure evil”. Given the popularity of Facebook, and the number of pictures/videos that people willingly post of themselves, this seems much worse.

    Hopefully the RPS do get involved. In the meantime, Facebook needs to put its anti-bullying messaging into real actions.

  3. Sooo glad there was no Facebook when I was a kid. Don’t know the situations here so I’m a little hesitant to make pronouncements, but it appears to be something that should probably be shut down.

  4. Yeah, okay. Get mad of a bunch of teenage punks posting this stuff (it is cyber bullying, no question about it) , but still no one pays attention to all the horrific pages out there, that are much worse than this one. This is in the public eye, so let’s use it to talk about the pages that offer child pornography, pages dedicated to slandering and objectifying women, animal abuse.. etc etc. Facebook is a plague and everyone seems to sit back idly and twiddle their effin’ thumbs while all these terrible things are being thrown at your children. We are letting the bullies, perverts, and sadistic freaks wave their flags high and proud.

  5. Facebook isn’t the problem: human beings are, especially humans who have been raised without any kind of moral compass. Whatever the invention, people with evil intent will find a way to use it for their purposes. What we need to do, instead of weeping and wailing, is (a) raise our children not to take part in behaviour that harms self and others, and (b) be diligent about reporting instances of such behaviour to those with the ability to shut it down, or, if we’re in that position, to shut it down ourselves.
