Ignoring cyberbullying and trolling on Facebook and Twitter is not the answer

“Don’t read it, don’t look at it” is the mantra adopted by most internet and law enforcement agencies, when confronted with requests to remove offensive and distressing cyberbullying content from internet search engines, websites and social media sites. This mantra appears to be the 21st-century version of “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

Today, however, “words” posted on the internet have the potential to remain there permanently, whether innuendo or fact, legally or illegally obtained. False, abusive and out of date information found online can have a devastating impact, affecting social lives and careers. Frustration, anguish, and despair can be caused by offensive material always being there, with little prospect of Law Enforcement or the publisher removing it. Similarly, using lawyers and attorneys has no guarantee of success but is guaranteed to be expensive, time-consuming and risk further publicity.

The longer such material remains, the greater the scope is for it to be manipulated, copied, added to or used without permission, creating a self-perpetuating monster. This monster can destroy lives unless stopped promptly. guides will help you to stop this monster from happening by demonstrating methods to remove content quickly and permanently. offers advice video bundles and eBook bundles designed to help you remove this content, without the need for Law Enforcement or expensive lawyers.
