Why is cyber-bullying such a problem?

Can't people just step away from their computers? I'm not trying to be snarky. If there's a genuine aspect I'm not seeing, I'd like to hear about it.

Yes and no. If they doxx you and post your residential info online and leaked hacked images of you, then going offline won't help.

The best solution to cyber bullying is to turn the screen off.
Because cu*ts have worked out nobody can punch them in the nose?

Bullies are weak, hiding behind a computer is even worse. 😏

That's one of the major downsides of the internet. The can of worms has been opened....,and there are plenty of worms out there 😔

Most people can, unless doxxed or a celebrity

As an adult, I am inclined to agree. If I am being bullied on here, it's easy to block the person, log off and forget all about it. I have a life outside of social media.

But for kids, many times these are their peers, and if they are not being accepted and are being bullied by them, its much harder to let that go. They don't have the maturity or perspective to see this is a temporary thing, and it will pass with enough time. For kids, their peers and friends are their whole world. If they are being shamed, bullied and rejected, it is much harder to be at peace with that.
