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?)

Cathy Seipp: Victim of Cybersquatter

Journalist Cathy Seipp is fighting for her life at Cedars Sinai, but cybersquatter Eliot Stein has already started using the domain name cathyseipp.com that he registered a few years back. On that site, there’s a letter, supposedly signed by Seipp. Stein pulled a similar stunt on Roy Masters a few years back, but Masters is hale and hearty and not very concerned.

FBLA deplores cybersquatting in the best of times, but this act is really beyond the bounds of decency.

The site is currently down, and let’s hope it stays that way.
