Stupidity should be punished, even at its earliest stages. No sympathy here, she deserves a good berating.

I love that Socrates quote. Every generation thinks the proceeding one is the worst.

This thread is sad.

Big story today about bullying as a Vancouver girl committed suicide today because of it...and what are many people here doing?

Promoting bullying.

Very sad. I'm really close with her brother and the family. It's been a rough 24 hours.

I can't believe how much ignorance and hate there is in the world. It's sad.

Someone explain this "memorial wall" to me. Was it specifically erected in Rypien's memory or was it a slab of concrete that people decided to write messages on? If it's not an official monument, then essentially isn't it just someone putting graffiti on top of existing graffiti? Certainly nothing to get upset about. I'm sure it would have been whitewashed over at some point by the city anyways.

Shutting this down. Clearly it's an emotional issue with a few sides to it, but like the act itself, this thread has not yielded anything positive.

Closed.
