I don't even want to ask myself anonymous questions
Needy site requires you to sign up before it'll even tell you what it is.
Needy site needs to fuck off.
Just click on the profiles midway down the page. Seems to be 100% used by teenagers to gossip...
et fucking cetera
Turns out you don't need to register to ask questions :D
awaiting answers from
'well if someone had that big of a crush on me that they would actually want to pay for a relationship with me, i'd most likely give them a chance'
but seeing something like this, nah.
anyone who made photos of themselves like that publicly available would've been bullied almost literally to death only like five or six years ago. And deservedly so.
they're kinda charmingly oblivious and uncynical.
quite a heartwarmingly earnest answer actually
I'm going to go out on a limb and guess it was someone from here...
Hey look, I've pulled. http://ask.fm/ConnerLutman/answer/58847491271

Don't be nasty.
Stop goading Jack Owens about the Manchester Ship Canal.
But I hope no-one 'links them to this thread' cos that'd spoil it as a valuable impartial resource.
This is the most ill thought out, stupid one they've ever done
that trolling is bullshit. The Internet is such a large part of the youths existence now that we need to train them against it.
I'm an adult, I know that YouTube commenters are the scum of the earth. Does a 13 year old?
I think it's fair to say most of us here grew up more-or-less parallel to the Internet, and so have this idea that Internet interactions are distinct from 'IRL' ones... but these youngsters now with their trainers and their folk music have grown up in a world where the Internet is pretty much crucial to their social interaction / development, so don't have this disconnect that makes us able to take it less seriously like what a normal person would.
I think though it's really important to note that it surely has to be an oversimplification to say this sort of thing is a prompt to a suicide, because I think something as serious and cataclysmic as any suicide is going to be borne of a combination of MANY complex factors.
Muddling up the whole issue is the fact that there's a clear agenda for someone like Murdoch and other big old-media types to want to exaggerate and sensationalise the whole issue (which, don't get me wrong, is one that needs to be dealt with in some form, I think) because of the fact that social / 'new' media impedes on their attempts to monopolise information, and to restrict it in this way is in their interests (I think it's probably the only way anything as completely brain-crematedly stupid as a pay wall for your online newspaper could ever actually be a workable idea).
talked about something on the internet with conviction that I'd never heard of.
Who else has written a well-researched, balanced article on the subject then?
published a month or so ago.
a) Laura Ashley still exists?
b) They were paying money for their adverts to appear on Ask.fm!
and have been getting lots of publicity for it. I guess there is such a thing as bad publicity.
It's literally the next line from the one you quoted, champ.
