Well, I knew about predators, and the forums are full of VTG's...but 'internet bullies'?

South Korea enforces new law to curb cyber bullying Thu Jun 28, 4:40 AM ET

South Korea on Thursday started enforcing a new law aimed at curbing the country's notorious cyber bullying by preventing Internet users from hiding behind false IDs.

Under the "Internet real-name system," the country's major portals and news media websites will be compelled to record the real IDs of users when they post entries.

Portal operators will be obliged to disclose personal information such as names and addresses of cyber attackers when their victims want to sue them for libel or infringement upon privacy.

"From today, users will be asked to give their real name and social security number before being allowed to write their postings," said a spokesman of Daum, one of the country's top portals which boasts of 38 million users.

Cyber bullying has become a social issue in South Korea as many celebrities often fall victim to abuse and malicious attacks.

Many Internet users, taking advantage of anonymity, have made a hobby of writing malicious messages on websites, accusing celebrities of sex scandals or having plastic surgery, experts said.

TV star Jeong Da-Bin and pop singer Yuni reportedly suffered cyber bullying before they committed suicide earlier this year.

South Korea's top portal operators such as Daum and Naver, along with 33 others, are subject to the new regulation.

South Korea is one of the world's most wired countries, with nearly a third of its 48 million population having access to high-speed Internet.

I don't know which is worse; attempting to bully someone online, or having an ego that can be damaged by being insulted online.

Not everyone in the world has as strong an ego as yours.
