The problem is compounded by anonymity as it allows the cyber-bully to take a ‘moral vacation’.
Cyber-stalking involves using the internet (or other electronic means) to repeatedly harass an individual, group or organisation. It can include monitoring any online activity of the target, gathering information to threaten or harass and the dissemination of false accusations and defamatory material. Cyber-stalking often features linked patterns of online and offline behaviour (‘real-time’ stalking) such as sending threatening emails.
