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.

We did not have this type of thing back when I was growing up in the 60's and 70's. I don't want my grandchildren to have to endure people putting things on line that is untrue. At least if you have the nerve to say it you can own up to it. Don't children have enough problems to deal with in this world without being hateful to each other!

that is true but then, why do they let their kids go on those sites? I know for fact i'll never let my kids go on social media until they are old enough not to be so impressionable, mostly because you do not need to go on those pages when you are 13... the same you don't need facebook, etc, etc, etc... we give our young too many liberties and this is what they do with them, and then companies like this website, who has done nothing (and whose configuration can be changed from the profile) have to be blamed for it

hold on a second. to all those people who are saying "too many people are taking their lives" and " we have lost enough young people because of this page" I want to know a few things. how many people have died directly from using ask.fm? and how do you know if said persons have died directly from using ask.fm. I don't believe for one second that a happy, well person can go onto a website, spend a half hour on it and then take their own lives. 6 of the top reasons for someone to take their...

hold on a second. to all those people who are saying "too many people are taking their lives" and " we have lost enough young people because of this page" I want to know a few things. how many people have died directly from using ask.fm? and how do you know if said persons have died directly from using ask.fm. I don't believe for one second that a happy, well person can go onto a website, spend a half hour on it and then take their own lives. 6 of the top reasons for someone to take their own life are: 1.They're depressed 2.They're psychotic 3.They're impulsive 4. They're crying out for help 5.They have a philosophical desire to die and 6.They've made a mistake(as in a mistake in their life that they have deep regret for). and I'm not just making this stuff up as I go I'm researching this. all that this proves is 2 things, and you can call me whatever the hell you like because I'm only speaking the truth and if you don't like it then that's your opinion and I expect you respect mine as I respect yours,. two things are: 1) THE INTERNET ISn't SAFE FOR KIDS! if you allow your extremley impressionable) 13 year old onto the internet with free reign then they are going to see some things that are sick twisted and rotten, that's why we have parental restrictions on your web browsers, learn to use them. 2) and I cant stress this enough PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR CHILDREN! (very important) if your kid, or even a kid you know, is being bullied, or is depressed you can probley tell if there is something wrong, you can tell if someone is sad or happy or sleepy you can tell right? just to clarify things ok. I AM NOT pro or against ask.fm, ive never used the site and I probley never will, it has no appeal to me, so please don't start ranting on about how I don't care about other people or any of that crap. I'm neutral. and please if your going to sign a petition atleast do some research into it before you all jump on the band wagon because it seems to me that from the comments, all you guys are doing is looking for someone to blame. but I will agree on one thing, the anonymous feature, it should be monitered by the sites admin and yes this is possible. just because YOU cant see who is posting doesn't mean the admins cant. its the opposite, I'm assuming that in order to post on this you need to have some form of account? and the admins are able to check the messages sent by each account incase of a glitch or bug in the software, or incase of severe bullying, I agree that the bullys should have some form of action taken against them. but I'm also sure that this page has helped alot of people out in the past. so think about it before you make your decision. like I said, I don't use this site, I probley never will, so it makes no difference to me what happens to it. rant over!

i respect your view but Ask.fm don't follow or trail any anonymous posts/comments, it's in their rules...these sites DO need to be totally accountable regardless who uses the sites.

it's easier for people to blame a web site that their bad parenting, as a parent you have to be concios of what your underage kid is doing on the internet, if she showes her tits online, and then gets bullied, it's wrong, but it's a big fail as a parent cause you should have known that!!

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..:)

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

People getting bullied should delete their profile. They can get bullied anywhere and on facebook and twitter and tumblr people can simply make a fake profile. Why shut down this site? Some people actually like it, its not really fair when any site could be used to bully people
