Sexual Harassment common in Online Gaming! And bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, and unacceptable behaviour online is also common!

A while ago, I objected to some users posting inappropriate posts to a trend, which frankly shocked my conservative, South African self. Their response was to spam me with insulting posts, including lewd images. My crime? To object to their using Google Plus to spam others with pornography. Google's response? They have yet to remove the defamatory posts.

Women, on Facebook and elsewhere are often harassed. As a man, I seldom incur any harrassment, but my experience hit me when I read this article by the BBC:

No spam, junk, hate-speech, or anti-religion stuff, thank you. Also no libel, or defamation of character. Keep it clean, keep it honest. No trolling. Keep to the point. We look forward to your comments!
