Another Teen Girl Commits Suicide Over Internet Bullying. :( :(

THE Federal Government has launched a new anti-bullying website following the death of a Melbourne schoolgirl.

The Easy Guide to Socialising Online website offers advice about 26 social networking, gaming and search engine sites.

Aside from general safety tips the website gives advice on adjusting privacy settings.

"Cyber bullying is a serious matter," Communications Minister Stephen Conroy said today.

Sheniz Erkan took her own life on Monday, a week before her 15th birthday, after falling prey to online bullies. Her funeral will be held in Melbourne today.

Her family said someone hacked into her Facebook account and sent messages using her profile, it was reported.

Yesterday, Sheniz's best friend broke her silence to reveal the schoolgirl's last words to her, and to urge other victims to speak out about bullying before it was too late, the Herald Sun reported.

15-year-old Renay Sumercan said she was heartbroken by her best friend's death.

The pair met at a party two years ago and formed an instant bond despite their different personalities.

"Even when I moved away we stayed best friends," she told the Herald Sun yesterday. "I loved her smile.

"She brought the best out in everyone. We both could trust each other. We could talk about things.

"We could have deep conversations that I couldn't have with anyone else, and we had the same sense of humour," she said.

Sheniz's shattered father also spoke out.

"They're just kids. Even adults can't hold it together - how are kids supposed to hold it inside? In the modern day, they just crack," Senol Erkan said.

Renay, who said she had also been bullied, said the pair sometimes spoke about being harassed.

"She was good at ignoring the bullies," she said. "She didn't care what anyone thought of her.

"But I guess she just couldn't take it any more.

"There's only a certain amount you can take.

"She thought no one cared about her."

The last time they spoke was just minutes before Sheniz died.

"The last words she said to me were 'I love you'," she said.

After seeing the tens of thousands of online tributes for her best friend, Renay said Sheniz was looking down and could see that people cared.

She had a simple message for Sheniz's bullies: "You really don't understand how severe your actions are until something like this happens.

"I'm mad at the bullies, of course I am. But it hasn't bothered them at all, because they're still doing it."

The new easy guide website can be accessed by visiting dbcde.gov.au/easyguide and then clicking on the "cybersafety help" button.

Re: Another Teen Girl Commits Suicide Over Internet Bullying. :( :(

People don't seem to realize that once you put personal information on the internet it is no longer personal. It becomes public!!!

Parents need to step it the fuck up and teach their kids some values. Things that go deeper than materialistic ideals go.

Is this sad, fuck yeah it is. But do I have any sympathy for the girl? Nope. She's selfish.

Nor do i have any for her parents. They're oblivious

I hate it when people are bullied, period and if I witness it, I stand up for those people. But if you're being bullied online to the point you want kill yourself, GET OFF THE FUCKING INTERNET.
