On the internet there is a social networking site called ‘Ask.fm ’where you can anonymously post questions to other users on the site. Some people are taking advantage of this and are posting hate speeches and horrible abuse to other users. The abuse to some users of the site is so appalling they are ending their own lives to escape the abuse they are being given on this site.

Since the summer of 2012 began, and the popularity of the website rose, at least 2 teenage girls have ended their lives due to the abuse they received on the site. The people writing those comments to the victims were not able to be traced as the comments were left anonymously on their pages.
We are campaigning to ban this site in Ireland. If it is banned, less people will have to endure online abuse and cyber bullying, and make the decision to end their lives over the abuse and hate they receive anonymously over this crude website.
