Nothing against good ol' WV. Seriously, my husband's from there--most of his family still lives there. I love the state. But I am NOT Sara McClung from West Virginia.
Why do I feel the need to say this? Because I got a weird google alert a little while ago, about a Sara McClung from WV. And the link took me to this awful website. There's an entire message board dedicated to trashing my name double.
I feel awful for this girl. It's Internet bullying in all its disgusting glory. Physical threats and name calling and just completely horrible and immature and scary things.
Okay and you know I'm not one to rant about things on here, because I'm more of a sparkles and sunshine and "let's spread the happiness" kind of blogger, but today I just have to say one thing...
While the picture I posted is funny (well, I thought it was anyway), cyber bullying is not. Threatening people on the internet is cruel and childish and, let's be honest, if you do it you're a complete coward. And it can lead to some really, really awful things.
Rant over. Sorry for soapboxing, but ugh. It takes a lot to get me going, except for things like this.
What about you guys? Any thoughts on Internet bullying?

Dear Cyber Bullies,
PS. To the WV online bulliers: Stop doing it to the other Sara McClung! Anyone with this name is clearly awesome.
