Minggam i the only one on here who gets death threats on tumblr from ns'ers?
For the past few months i've been getting anons almost daily with shit like "Get off ns or you'll never see the light of day again." and "my crew down votes everything you post because you're a girl and know nothing about skiing." and "none of you girls deserve to be on newschoolers." and blah blah blah.
Not sure if that was just me or whatever
B.AussieThat's actually fucked. Have you told Bishop? There's nothing he can do about the death threats if they are anonomous, but he can probably at least tell you who the guys down-voting all your posts are. That's insane kids from NS would take it so far, especially submitting it to you off NS. I recognise they're joking and probably won't kill you, but it's still pretty fucked you're getting threats like that and getting bullied due to your use of a skiing website. And that the abuse has followed you away from NS to tumblr.
i was going to suggest talking to a mod, though in the past ive had no help from people, and i kind of let it roll off my shoulders now because it's not even worth thinking about. though when i was younger it was a lot more to swallow, especially since i was dealing with a lot of personal issues. i used to get that a lot from nsers, and some times you know exactly who it is. you might not be aware, but in some countries, such as canada, cyber bullying is in fact now a criminal act.
I don't know if i persay think the mods or bishop can do much, but i do think its important that in order to keep this community a strong one, that there be some kind of stern addressing on these types of situations. i know there's rules, but if we shamed this behavior instead of not giving a fuck, less people would act like twats.
