March 30 is “Stop Cyberbullying Day”

Andy Carvin declares today as Stop Cyberbullying Day. Blogher’s Lisa Stone, writing about Kathy Sierra, exhorts us to Hate the Hate Speech. There’s an online community (when is there ever not an online community?). Angela Gunn, in US Today, suggests:

We start treating the blogosphere less like an episode of Jackass and more like the place we live.

And Violet Blue makes the case that cyber threats are usually directed against women, but she doesn’t mention the late Cathy Seipp and her cyber-annoyer, Eliot Stein, aka Troll Dolls.

Meanwhile, someone has been busy, laboring at the parody trade. Eliot Stein’s Diary is not safe for work, according to Patterico.
That alone is enough to make most people click through.

(FBLA thinks the guy in the logo is sort of hot–in a Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down way. Is that so wrong?)
