Ummm. The whole idea behind formspring.me is so that users can ask questions anonymously right??? Gosh people even want to know IP's on sites where you already KNOW its reason is for anonymity?

Defeats the entire purpose to me. If you want to know who posts why sign up?

Yeah well so often ignorant people post comments or questions that are ridiculous...people seem to get real brave when they're anonymous. I bet they wouldn't be so brave if they're comments could be traced back to them!

Yes the whole idea is so questions (which have turned into horrible, rude, and disrespectful comments) can be posted anonymously. If people are getting these comments, i vote they just delete their account. That way, if they bother you that much, you will receive no more. The site has guaranteed further anonymous question asking however. They state that you will not be able to reveal who posts these things. I'm a kid myself, I can handle being called mean names and such but in the safety of your child's feelings, just delete the account.

I would be interested if this site could be supeonaed to reveal users under the new "cyberbullying" law. My daughter is being harassed by schoolmates, and they would be expelled if their identity would be revealed. Does anyone know about this type of situation?

I'm curious and baffled by one other choice all parents can take, but I'd like to know why it was not considered. Why don't you tell your child to end the account they're using, therefore no longer having to see these cyberbully messages everytime? I honestly don't see a problem with a child/parent changing the account by closing the trouble account permanently and opening a new one (or keeping the old account and changing password from child's knowledge, for future evidence, etc)... but just don't allow the child from accessing the messages any longer. Will the parent take over and do this for the sake of their child or not?

But that's so boring to simply close your daughter's account! Its much more fun and "EFFECTIVE" to set up an anonymous account as a parent (pretending your not a parent, but perhaps a boy from school, or someone else) and scare the crap out of these brats. In addition to scaring them, its also easy to find evidence to give to school administrators on accounts some as formspring.

And you know what? You can also find out whose "going out" or "having sex" with each other, and bring this to the attention of their parents. Good stuff.

That's the way to go! Take matters into your own hands..:)

You are a parent. She is the child. I do not agree in any way with "cyberbullying," however, if your daughter is under 18, then it is up to you to control her Internet usage. Things said (as you now know) can have terrible effects (how many beatings and suicides have come from social networking sites).

I am not saying that you are a bad parent at all, but there is no way that my parents would have allowed me to utilize such a site. A personal site that allows anonymous comments? For a teen? Come on now, you cannot expect kids (especially kids these days) to not be hurtful.

I would explain to your daughter the uselessness of such a thing.

It is not on the school (in my opinion)... that (what she is enduring) falls on you as a parent for allowing her to use such a site.

Yes, I agree totally. I did not know about the site, until she came to me with the offensive messages. The sender(s) - it's probably one person due to the similarity and content of the messages, is a classmate. My daughter is no longer permitted to be on this site and I already know the identity of the person.

The issue I am having is that she has been bullied by one particular girl at school who has made it her hobby to make my daughter's life miserable. One month ago my daughter loved school, now she is nearly suicidal..... NO ONE will talk to her on this one girl's orders. Yes, it sounds stupid, but the effect on my daughter is devastating. Her grades have dropped and she is missing school. The posts keep telling her to switch schools. Yes, we could do that, but what message would that send to this girl?

The subpoena will only give us the proof we need to finally end this....as the school needs proof to expel her. It's not really about Formspring.me, as much as it is about the fact that she committed a crime and as a result, can FINALLY be stopped.

I was only asking because having the cyberbullying proof will allow the school to finally expel this bully and the tormenting at school will stop. I will just seek help through an attorney.... As Formspring.me"s terms and conditions clearly state that the identity of the senders will only be revealed by subpoena for criminal acts, and this is a criminal act. It also states that the type of hate male she is receiving is against their policy. I know it can be done legally, I was just asking if anyone subpoenaed them yet, and how they went about doing so.

So thanks for the well-meaning parenting advice.... but I'm already on that. Now I'm looking for advise on how to serve them. Thanks.

uhm i feel bad for your daughter and all but she had the choice to either step up the bully and say something about what she DIDNT LIKE the SECOND it happend and she also had the choice to not even POST the question yet alone LOOK at it. so in the bullys defense its YOU and YOUR DAUGHTERS PROBLEM...

Re: Is there any type of tracker for formspring.me?

Hi, yes there is. I just went through something similar. It started on formspring, and I promptly deleted my daughter's account and changed the password. You can undelete the page, so changing the password to something your daughter doesn't know is important in case she feels compelled to go back to that train wreck of a site... To get the subpoena, you need to call the police and ask to speak to whomever's in charge of cyber bullying. They are the ones who do all of that. They make a phone call, and voila, the get a subpoena 60 seconds later, or however fast it's faxxed to them. You haven't called the police yet?

Re: Is there any type of tracker for formspring.me?

Someone is really making me feel bad. That's why I just wanted to find a way to know how I could trace those beeeiotches. I've been searching for long but found nothing. Gah! Anyway...

Formspring. me is not such a good site since children are being exposed to the practicality of the real world. Though quite good for them to experience...but in such a early age, I don't prefer children to be part of this Social Networking Site. I remembered when I got 2 messages in my inbox, I got prank. I mean, I don't feel guilty in any way. :| And damn those people who's trying to look for some FIGHT. That wasn't fair.

Re: Is there any type of tracker for formspring.me?
dude we don't want to delete our formspring because we like questions. formspring was oringinally a site, where you could just ask your friend's stuff that was nice, and not beeeiotchy, but now it's a hate site, no one enjoy's it, someone almost comide suicide because of it, someone was getting harrassed, someone was getting death treat's, doesn't this seem a little odd for a site that's supposed to be enjoyful? and formspring anonomos people get to you, and it really hurts. but then again if you don't listen to them your problem is solved. if they're to cowardly to show there face's then don't listen to them, there just doing it to put you down and make themself's feel so much better, but if you did find out who they were they'd be screwed, it's why there such cowards! it could be someone thats's really shy, and pretend's to be someone there not on formpspring, but would never have the gut's to say it to someone in person, i honestly think life would be so much better if they shut this damn site down, even if it was never created, 90% of formspring user's disable there account because of what people say. whoever made this site, you should be ashamed of yourself! you made the world a worst place then it already is.btw i'm one of the people that love questions, they make me happy sometimes, but then when i get one that hurt's, i feel bad. for exemple: i got my account back today, it had been disabled for 3 weeks now, and i already got so many hater's. saying i was a beeeiotch, i was annoying, and a retard and all that shit, i just replied to them ' you know you can think whatever the fudge you want, im done listening to all these hater's shit, you can think what the hell you want about me, i dont care, yeah im a beeeiotch who give's a fudge! everyone is! now get the fudge off my formspring, you little coward, you acually think people are going to listen do someone that doesn't have a bit of bravory to show the name to the person they dissed? wow your so tuff. you know go get a life. get off formspring, it's people like you that made this site into a hate site.. i hope your proud of what you've done' thanks for listening!:)

If you report someone to formspring asking for a persons account name if they left you anonymous questions, are formspring allowed to reply to them and tell them who the anonymous user is. My friend seems to think they can but I thought that would just cause even more trouble. Or do formspring even have a way of finding out who the anonymous question was sent by or just the police?
