The children of the world have it hard enough without sites like ASK.FM inviting bullying behaviour. Children are taking their own lives due to bullying......shame :(

How dare you! Don't trivialise such an important topic!! This isn't about the internet, it's about bullies using an anonymous feature to terrorise others and the hosts of the site refusing to act. If you have to make smart comments, please do so elsewhere... your posts throughout this discussion have been tactless, insensitive and downright horrible. People have died... Be glad you've never felt the brunt of this(obviously you haven't or you wouldn't behave in such a malevolent way)

Shane you need a reality check and you obviously have some growing up to do- Its not just about people who are using ask.fm so simply saying that no one forced them to use ask.fm is not an argument to this. What about somebody who does not use ask.fm but there are many posts and horrible comments and threatening posts about them. You don't need to be using ask.fm to be affected by it. Even if you then decide not to use social media as a teenager you are disconnected from your peers and...

Shane you need a reality check and you obviously have some growing up to do- Its not just about people who are using ask.fm so simply saying that no one forced them to use ask.fm is not an argument to this. What about somebody who does not use ask.fm but there are many posts and horrible comments and threatening posts about them. You don't need to be using ask.fm to be affected by it. Even if you then decide not to use social media as a teenager you are disconnected from your peers and become even less involved socially. Bullying is sometimes about making somebody feel alone and disconnected and by saying - no one makes you use social media is another way that a person can feel ostracized. Regardless of whether it is in school, online, on the phone by sitting back and allowing such things to happen - and in the case of ask.fm anonymously you are almost supporting bullying. Lets see how you feel is say a younger sister, or cousin was tormented daily online or if numerous vicious posts about them were circling around

I honestly can't understand what makes someone want to sit in front of a computer screen sending messages of a bullying nature to someone? do they get some kind of thrill out of it or think its funny? the problem with Ask.fm is that someone can go on there and post whatever they want hiding behind 'anonymous' and you'll never know who they are and they'll constantly get away with it, older people might ignore what's said to them and tell the moron to go and take a hike but Children take...

hi danielle death threw suiciside is devasting for any family parent friends or community to come to terms with ..i think the part were u wrote in( Children take these messages for granted, if someone tells them that they're horrible and should kill themselves then they'll actually go ahead and do just that ) should be re written.. i dont think children teenagers or adults would take there life because they were asked to !! in teenagers and adults the pain there experiencing is very real . no offense

dunno why sites like this is allowed on Facebook its sick that people think its funny to send messages to teenagers who keep to themselves and do no harm to others.. Either FB remove the anonymous option OR shut this crap down! Then there will be less teens committing suicide..

Hi Dympna. Ask.fm is not a facebook site. Facebook can track all comments posted on fb, Ask.fm allow anonymous comments therefore can't track them. Thats why Daniel set up this cause to shut Ask.fm down or have them change their anonymous policy...thanks for the support..:)

I'm. Very sorry for your loss, but this site isn't the issue, its bullying that's the problem. And parents need to be more supportive these days, and be there for their children more. I've been bullied all my life and I have an abusive father, and I'm still here. the reason for that is my mom. She let me know from the get go that she was there for me and would get me help with whatever I needed. Honestly, shutting down this site won't help anything. Focus on the real problems, bullying,...

Focus on the real problems, bullying, parenting, and getting our kids help when they need it. That will save lives. Shutting down aks.fm will not.

bullying happens if you don't know what your kid is doing on the internet... instead of shutting down, maybe you should start growing interest on what your kids do online

oh take your tanpon off... you idiots shut ..is anyone forcing children to fucking go on ask fm .is ask fm the one asking the question if they dont want to be cyber bullied why dont they just deativate their account .can I just point out that you can change the settings on there so that no one can send you anonymous messages, they have to show their name. Its really not that hard, and if people are having issues with cyber bullying, then just turn that off. My friend had that problem, but hasn't had any stupid messages since he changed it.
