    What does this mean?

    Neither brevity nor bravery make sense in this context.

    Bravity is a new word that has no meaning as yet

    But it sounds great so why not use it?

    Yes but even when River uses words with meaning I often do not understand what he is saying.

    The way internet bullying can be more devastating is because its media that can be accessed by anyone and to a wide audience. Bullying in person is more local but media can seriously do damage to a career, reputation etc. Im not talking about forum disagreements, insults or arguments as thats usually inconsequential.

    This clip was from a roast of jamie foxx who couldnt take it or more likely abusing his star status to bully this comedian who was starting out.

    I hate jamie foxx and have no respect for him as this was way foul to do. Also considering Jamie foxx is a shit comedian, actor and ugly as hell. He didnt deserve to be famous imo. He is not that good and was ridiculously over-rated.

    I really dont know why the audience is laughing at jamie foxx's quips as he is interrupting the comedian because his interruption just shows his bully tactic and that he is overly sensitive at his own roast and the guy wasnt that mean anyways. The guy is at least a bit funnier than him.

    I think Cyberbullying is a serious matter that everyone needs to look into regardless of age, sex, education etc. It may not appear serious at times but definitely it can bring so much negativity to any person involved.

    Virgin shaming is another thing I hate about this society.

    I hate it when people make me feel ashamed and uncomfortable just because I am an adult virgin.

    In my experience virgin shaming is a form of bullying (just like bullying is a form of abuse).

    Eliot Rodger couldn't get a girlfriend and he was better-looking than me in my opinion and he was also wealthier than me (his parents were wealthy) so what chance do I have of ever getting a girlfriend or sex?

    I won't be surprised if I end up like a 90 year-old virgin unless I commit suicide beforehand because of depression.

    If many people are slutty and don't have good morals, they will devalue and shame those who do by manipulatively turning the tables. It's about the majority and power. Everyone has a ego and unfortunately, many do not have the character to admit when they have a shortcoming.

    You should really be thankful. I knew a guy once who got his gf pregnant, he had a crappy job and ended up getting arrested for lack of child support. Another fellow recently supposedly has a baby on the way, however the girl was seeming to play him, I believe it's someone elses and not his kid. Not to mention you really don't want an STD, and their repentant now especially since the healthcare in the USA sucks big time compared to other countries like Canada.

    the internet can sure ruin someone's life just as any tool can but it can also be used to correct a wrong, enlighten or heal too such as this video explaining what happened as well as to distinguish the facts from the rumors.

    The age of cyber bullying is on the down turn thanks to Trump.

    No one takes whatever he tweets seriously.

    OK good. But I had not thought it would be - opioids are (over)-prescribed for pain relief, aren't they?

    I would also recommend counseling in addition to medications.

    Sometimes the medication just isn't enough

    Opioids are
