ASK.FM has been brought to a lot of peoples attention in recent times. All of this is due to the horrible bullying of Children on their profiles. It is not the fact that the Site create offensive material,it is the whole point that each comment that is made to a person is made Anonymously. It gives Bully's the right to pick on other Children in their community. It makes it impossible for a parent or authorities to trace and track down the person behind the writing. They can be threatening,Abusive,Insulting and just down right mean.
It is known that Children have commit suicide or attempted it due to this site. People should be allowed to take a stand against this.These Children are in the prime of their life.The are influential and easily led and they are trying to find themselves in life. Should they choose to join a social network,it should be done on the safe knowledge that they can write what they like within reason without Anonymously being degraded and told to Die.
I'm asking that at the very least Facebook remove this App from their site. Is money worth more than a Childs life!? I hope not.

There are Children being bullied everyday of the week,it's something that most parents have to deal with.But it's normally done out in the open where other people can witness and Name the Bullies.But this app/site has gone a step to far.These Children are actually been told by others in their community to kill themselves,They are being called horrible Names,They are being threatened.And all of this is being done Anonymously,with makes it harder to find the Bully.There are already reports of a number of Children either committed Suicide or harmed themselves because of what was posted to their walls.
We try our best everyday to protect our Children.We monitor their logs on the Internet,We question them to the best of our knowledge,but nothing prepares us for what we can actually read with our own eyes.
Please sign this petition and hopefully Facebook is remove the App/site from it's site.
