From circulating emails that mock someone’s appearance to stealing their IM screen-name and using it to insult others, the trend of cyberbullying keeps growing.  Because of the ability to be anonymous online, children and teens often feel a freedom to harass their peers over the Internet to an extent they wouldn’t consider doing face-to-face. 

Now cyberbullying has become so commonplace that some states are considering laws against it.
