Promise Me, Do, Spare Those Under the Keys

As these words of ours that we’re all posting online, might be, damaging…translated…

Recently a friend started a diner, other than being in awe of his cooking skills, I’d hoped, that I can do something for him, to help his shop run smoothly.  My friend didn’t ask for much, smiled and said, that if I’d used my articles to recommend his shop to the online community, that it may be the best form of, advertisement.  And so, I’d, tapped into my editorial skills from my work from before, wrote an article for him, and gladly, the article got the attention of a group of hundreds had posted things.

As we were both happy over this, I’d suddenly found, that my personal page hits surpassed thousands per day too, but, most of the comments, they were like friendly like they’d been before, instead, the trolls trolled us for making the shop look and sounded good, that the shop my friend owned, seemed like it would cheat the guests.  Some of those who made real troubles, left the messages of “the food, disgusting, and the prices, too expensive, while the owner of the shop was…well………”, then, my personal headshot got posted to the bottom of the posts, and, those “martyrs of justice” started attacking my “immoral behaviors”, criticizing about why I couldn’t do what I’d been “paid to” do, that I was, immoral in embellishing my friend’s shop, how I was, “cheating the people out of their money”, etc., etc., etc.

trolls online! like this, and this may be someone you know too! Illustration from online

It wasn’t that I’d never been bullied before, but, seeing how my headshot got cut, I started to panic for real, at the shortest time, I’d thought, that I had the photos of my family members on there too, could it be that they were also, attacked?  I’d felt apologetic toward my friend too, my good intention, got abused by the online community.

In the past, our culture taught us to be courteous to one another, to be kind to those whom we meet, and yet, the online world became, a secret headquarters, betting on how you can’t see me, and I can’t, see you either, the anonymity, I’m not who I say I am, and you’re not who you say you are either, forgetting, that behind the keyboards, there are, REAL live, human beings, the hearts that are, working really hard, to make the lives, count.  As our lives are, tied in to the internet, but, can we, in all the words we post online, put that empathy into what we’re, saying?

My friend did NOT blame me, but I’d still, taken a little more time, to get myself from under the glooms of the attack.  And I will, never try to, help my friends in, anything, anymore.

And so this, is how the internet affects people in a negative way, because there will always be, TROLLS, those sour masses, that are, commenting on what they really got no clue about, and, these words of “you suck”, or whatever, it hurt, and, especially if these bad words can spread like a wildfire too fast, burn through the online world, damaging the reputations, hurt the feelings of someone who don’t even know those who are targeted by the online community!  And this is really, B-A-D!

The Sexually-Illicit Footages Gone Viral, Getting Passed Around, with the “Multiples of Damaging Effects”

How cyberbullying is still NEXT to impossible to stop, in this, high-tech age, and how the law does, SQUAT!!!  Off of the Newspapers, translated…

The Leaks, the Forwarding, the Viewing Online is Enabling, the Legislators Called for an Amendment, to Set up a Specialized Unit to Remove the Images Completely OFFLINE

There’d been an influx of cases of sexual violence footages being found, there’d been an increase of 876 case involving children and adolescents from 2019 to 2021.  The experts stated, every time that these footages get watched or forwarded, it’d a damage, the victims keep on getting “raped repeatedly”.  The legislator,

Wang called out that other than amending the laws, there should also be a unit in the government set up especially to tackle this matter, to ensure that the images, the footages had been, erased completely on and offline.

Based off of understanding, the sexual image violence cases involving the age group of eighteen to seventy-four is continuing on at four-percent, but, there are not that many who came out to ask the law enforcement units for help.  The professor from social policies and sociology, Wang stated, that the sexual assault victims may only get assaulted once in a lifetime, but the effects of the violence is for life, and the damages of those who were caught on tape getting assaulted, multiplies, this is even harder to break from, the post-traumatic stress.

The victims interviewed of the sexual violence footages, because everybody on the streets had seen the videos, they’d not dared disclosed what happened to them to anybody else, worried that the others may blame them, “you were the ones to have consented to get taped”, if the perp is one person, then, the enablers of this assault by footage is infinite, not only the one who’d leaked the footages out, those who’d viewed the footages, those who’d forwarded the footages, are all, enablers.

Wang stated, the filmed are usually enticed, inexperienced, mostly were “tricked”, of the adolescent age group, some perps used the titles of job offerings, companionship charts, getting the victims dressed in next to nothing, then, getting the victims to strip themselves to completely nude.  The victims are primarily females, but, the number of male victims are on the rise too now.

The counselor, Chen stated, that the cases of sexual violence were more prevalent in the less functional families, but with the internet, this form of digital violence had already spread to every single household, and any age can be victimized.  Especially children and teen, they are the group that needs close attention, the victims may find it hard to disclose what happened to them, the families, and schools need to be more sensitive to the signs, to note the behaviors that seemed off for a child.

Wang stated, the laws to prevent digital violence here in Taiwan is not as advanced compared to other countries’, it’d still not yet specified the class behaviors of what constitutes as illegal here.  Until the start of this year, the Executive Department only started listing out the specifics, there are still many details that needed to get written out, a ton of rules that needed amending, hope, that the government doesn’t just set up the rules, but also, find effective ways to enforce the laws, to prevent more victims from being abused, to effectively, STOP the streaming live footages and the footages going viral.

And so, this god DAMN government DARE pride itself for being advanced in the laws to prevent the invasions of privacy, setting up and passing those, anti-stalker laws, yada, yada, yada, and yet, it does, absolutely, N-A-D-A, to prevent the abuse of victims who’d been raped, molested, and captured on tape, and now, the footages of these, sexual violence, with the victims’ faces not blurred out, are going, to spread all over the internet!  Yeah, we’re, advanced all right: advanced, on falling behind HUMAN rights, and the protection of the victims of these, crimes of sexual nature!

In the Face-Switch Case, the Primary Suspect, Yu Pleaded Guilty & Sought Mediation in Her Sentencing

The verdict, of the woman, who’d, used someone else’s face in a photo, with the nude bodies that’s of another, and, the hammer came down on her!  On crimes and punishment, cyberbullying here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The famed YouTuber, “Yu”, Chu and his twenty-two-year-old assistant, Chuang, used the face-switch capabilities of high tech devices, produced the pornographic footages, putting the famed actresses, youtubers, politicians, and sold the footages for a huge profit of over $13.38 million N.T.s, they were charged on aggravated slander, obstruction of social order, and violating the personal data protection act, indicted.  Yesterday was the first day of the trial at Hsinbei District Court, Chu admitted to the guilty pleas, the case went into simplified trial mode, because there were too many victims, the judge decided to call them all one by one to the stand, to see if mediation can be achieved.

with this sort of an effect

photo found online, only with the sexually illicit images in this particular case!

After the court ended the sessions, “Yu” walked out of the courthouse, and faced the pressed, “I’d admitted to my own wrongdoings, and I want to offer my most sincere apologies to all of my victims”, and bowed to apologize to all the victims.

The district attorneys believed, “Yu” and Chuang, for their own personal profits, abused the technology, made the pictures of 119 women into sexually illicit footages via cut and paste, and, shared the photos online repeatedly, causing even more damages to the victims, and had, selected their victims via a voting call online, objectifying women; but, considering how the two suspects admitted to wrongdoing, the D.A. advised the courts to confiscate all the earnings from their crimes, and charged them with violation of other people’s privacy, asked the courts to give them both a sentence that fitted to their, crimes.

The victims included Kao, the legislator, the city councilwoman from Kaohsiung, Huang, Huang, who was a former spokeswoman for the mayor’s office of Taipei, and there were those in the movie/entertainment industries, Jolin Tsai, Cheng, Kuo, as well as YouTubers too.  But the president, Tsai, who was said as a previous victim wasn’t among those who’s photos were misused.

The Hsinbei District Court prepared the case, with “Yu” pleading guilty in court, hoping to reach a settlement agreement with all of the victims; the judge presiding told “Yu”, the next time the court is in session all the victims will all get called to come up all at once, to see which ones are willing to settle through mediation.  “if the perpetrator receives enough forgiveness from the victims, the sentences will reduce by a great deal”.  The next hearing is scheduled for June third.

And hopefully, these “victims”, don’t forgive this individual easily, after all, this, is easily done all over again, I mean, you can, just, cut and paste someone’s head onto someone (or something!) else’s body, and, spread it out online, and, there’s no set law, to prevent this sort of using the internet to bully, to defame, to paste some famous person’s head to a naked woman (or a man)’s, body here.

Sold the DeepFake Video Footages from Online, Made Millions of Dollars Illegally, Yu Indicted on Three Counts

Taking cyber sex crimes, one more step, farther, with the DeepFake app here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

There were 119 Victims, the A.I. Deepfake Technologies were Abused in Areas of Sexual Cyberbullying, and the Calls of Amendments to Protect Came About as Well

The famous YouTuber, “Yu”, Yu-Cheng Chu used the Deepfake technologies to make the porns, and sold them off online, switched the faces of famous female actresses, the YouTubers, politicians too, onto the bodies of the porn stars, there were 119 victims so far.  The Hsinbei D.A.’s office charged Chu and her male assistant, Chuang on charges of public indecency, slander, and breaking the laws on personal data protection, suggested to the courts to confiscate the total earnings of $13.38 million N.T.s they’d made illegally; the YouTuber, “Smiley”, the woman, Ye, had been dropped from the charges due to lack of evidence.

The D.A. found, that Chu and Chuang, for their own private means, abused the techniques of A.I. made the fake photos of women up, produced the hard-to-tell real videos of sexually illicit means, and shared the videos online, that it’s caused irreparable damages to the victims, and had gone online to poll the public who they wanted to see, objectifying women, causing sexual violence online, as well as cyberbullying, that the damages they’d done were, enormous, beyond calculations, and, considering how both admitted to wrongdoing, the D.A.’s Office had asked the courts to give them the sentences they deserve.

The Deepfake case, brought out the amendments of the laws against cyberbullying.  On the tenth, the Executive Department passed the amendment of the obstruction of sexual privacy and the falsified images, producing of spreading the sexually illicit images of another that were false, with the heaviest sentence of five years and if the perpetrators attempted to make money, then, the heaviest sentences would be increased to seven years.

The head of justice department, Tsai told, that the amendments were to protect the rights of the victims’ privacy, that members of the public should NOT, without the consents, film or spread the sexually illicit images of other people, and reiterated that the members of the public need to be on the alert, to know if the footages were Deepfake, to not produce, nor spread the false videos, to protect the privacies and the rights of others, to make the online world, safer.

the DeepFake programs, someone else’s body with your face, or your body with someone else’s, face…photo from online

The police and D.A. found, that Chu in July two years ago, started up the Twitter Fans page of “Taiwan YouTuber Face-Off”, later changed the name of the group to “Taiwan YouTube Sensation Videos Synthesis”, recruited the members of the online community to get into the Telegram group, with the charges of eight hundred dollars per member gaining the regular memberships, that they can watch the footages, upgrading to VIP with paying for $1,900N.T. in membership, the individuals can watch the long films, and attracted 4,500 individual to get the memberships.

Chuang first downloaded the images of the victims to start of, then, Chu cut off the face using internet, switched the faces to the sexually illicit footages, the victims included the Taipei City’s legislator, Kao, the city councilwoman, Huang, the Taipei City Spokeswoman, Huang, a total of 119 victims, of these eighty-three had pursued their cases on the criminal fronts.

Last October, the Detective Agency last October took Chu and two others into custody.  Chu and Chuang admitted to the crimes, claimed “it was fun, and it gets the volumes of the visitors to the website higher”; Chu’s girlfriend, Ye, denied her involvement, claimed that she cohabited with him, but they had separate rooms to work in, that she was unclear of what he made, Chu also claimed that he’d not told his girlfriend either.

And so this, is how the “face-off” technologies, exacerbated the cyber sex trade, because, there’s, no way any of us can prevent someone else from taking our headshots, that’s why this is an easy crime to commit, and, even if these perps were caught, there’s no telling how far these, falsified sex photos of our heads, with naked bodies that aren’t ours to begin with, got to, and there’s the need for an even harsher punishment for these sorts of crimes, slaps on the wrists will, no longer do, as this will, become, the primary means that crimes are committed now, with everything getting, exchanged from online, any one of us can be targets.

The Deepfake Crimes for Profit, the Most Severe Punishments of Seven Years in Prison

The government’s really, CRACKING down on these sex crimes that are happening on the internet right now here!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Lawmakers Passed the Four Bills to Prevent Sexual Crime, Giving a Jail Sentence Term of Ten Years for Shooting, Spreading Sexually-Illicit Footages of Children & Adolescents Online

The YouTuber, Jade used Deepfake last year, transferred the females’ faces to the porn sites to make a profit, the victims were made up of legislators as well as T.V. personnel, and actresses, it’d caused the society to pay attention.  The legislature passed the drafts with four specifics on prevention of sexual violence, of them, the individuals will receive up to seven years for making the false sexually illicit images and spreading them; if there’s no justified reason, and the individuals were found with child pornography in possession, the jail sentence of a year or less would be passed down.

The various departments of the government brought up four amendments, including the amending of the criminal law, the children-adolescent sextortion laws, the sexual assault prevention, along with the protective bills for the victims of these crimes.

The head of State, Su stated, that in recent years, there’d been an influx of cases of sexual violence using the internet, that in the past, only the charges of libel and slander were applicable, that it’d, defamed the victims; and, a lot of the behaviors are limited by the law, there’s no effective ways of preventing the criminals from making a profit off of the sexually illicit footages, which caused the victims to never coming out from under.

The penal code had added the “obstruction of sexual privacy and the false images”, taping, photographing without consents, with the heaviest sentence of three years; and, six months to five years for spreading out the photos, the footages; if money was made, then, the sentence would be increased by half.  With the add on of spreading the sexually illicit footages without the consents getting seven years at most.

The victims of these sex crimes online are mostly made up of children, adolescents, and women, increased punishments for the related offenses to these is being set at three years to ten years; and, the sentence for passing these sexually illicit footages, videos increased to anywhere from a year to seven year’s term in prison.

And, this is the government’s attempts, to stop the children and adolescent from getting sextorted, and, chances are, these means are still not going to work, because, it can only work on paper, not in reality, the way they should do it is to CRACK down on the sources, the supplies, and try to cut the demands of the predators, but that can’t happen, so, yeah, this still works, only in theory, but not in application I’m afraid.  Just because you’d, increased the severity of punishment for these crimes, it doesn’t mean that people will be scared into, not committing these crimes.

The Need to Prevent the Intimate Photos from Going Viral, We Needed an Amendment to Protect the Involved Set Up Speedily

On how to prevent yourselves, from getting, victimized after the two of you, break up, when those sexual photos had been, shot, during the time when you two are hitting it hot and, heavy!  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The legislator, Kao beaten by her boyfriend to injury, although the man is already in police custody, but, there’s a chance that the photos of intimacy of the two had gone, viral.  This showed, that the law is lacking, in protecting the rights of the abused, when the abuser holds the photos of intimacy of the victims, are the laws which are set up currently, enough, to protect the rights of the, victims?

Based off of Penal Cod 315, Section 1.2, those who illegally tapes, photographs, or using any other means to secretly film another in private activities, is punishable by a three-year sentence maximum.  And, this stated, that if the two are dating, then, it’s easily interpreted as that there’s the agreeing to getting secretly filmed, taped, and this is going to cause problems.  While, after the breakup, to prevent the images, the footages from leaking out, is there a right to ask the individual to delete all the records, this will become problematic as well.  To prevent the issues of invasions of privacy after the break up, the recordings without the other party’s concerns, are all included in the voyeur clause.

no way to prevent this! Photo from online

As based off of Penal Code 315-2, Section 3, those who spread the contents of the recordings, will be sentenced to no more than five years in prison, this isn’t lenient, and not considered as accusation cases, but, does it need to have the preset of being secretly filmed, if the victim didn’t press charges on being secretly filmed, the individual who’d streamed the footages online, will s/he be charged of this count, then, there would be, discrepancies.  Basing off of a stricter definition, it needed to have the fact that the individuals were, secretly filmed for the preset, otherwise, spreading the footages, will only be charged with Penal Code 235, spreading lewd photos.

Spreading of lewd photos is not a chargeable crime, but, the laws gave it two years and less jail term to the offenders, which is considered a slap on the wrists.  And, on the matter of spreading out the photos of intimacy on the counts, and, the sexual intercourse between the man and woman, would constitute as molestations, and wouldn’t that be, damaging the victims repeatedly.

To resolve the matter, there’s need to define the spread of lewd photos into act, at least, raise up the sentence terms to five years and less, and the charges of spreading the sexually-illicit photos, and all of these needed to get adjusted in wordings of the law, to prevent the victims from getting offended repeatedly again.

And, there’s, the matter of statutory period too, how to prevent these photos of sexual intimacies from leaking out is worth considering.  Especially with the current domestic violence prevention, only limited to the physicality of the abused, and the individuals’ personal freedoms, toward the behaviors of spreading the photos, the law only sets a restraining order against such acts, but, the victims may not know the identity of the individuals spreading the photos, let alone, asking the courts for that needed restraining order and in the end, the victims can only rely on the criminal charges to prevent the spread of such photos.

On the matter of handling the matter as criminal offense, confiscating, although this included all the hard drives, but, does it also, include the platforms of which the photos were, uploaded to, or the social media too, there’s, the definition of such needed, in legal terms, to the point of if it’d, obstructed the freedom of speech too.  Even if the confiscations of such materials had been conducted by force, in the internet eras, how to prevent the setting up of an alternative account to spread the is an even harder to tackle problem, and this will be, a hot potato that the legislators need to, look into more.

And so, there are, still, a lot of shortcomings to this, anti-stalking law, to prevent the violence of intimate partners, and, there’s the matter of the sexually illicit photos you took of each other, because you want to share that part of your selves, with the other person, because the two of you are, in love, not realizing, that HEY, if and when we break up, those materials can be used, against me, but hey, you don’t realize that, not when you’re, hot and heavy with each other, in L-O-V-E, which made you easy targets.

The Rough Drafts of the Legislatures Out: Switching the Faces in the Sex Videos Uploaded Online, Get Seven Years in Prison in the Most Severe Cases

A stricter punishment for, for the wrongful uses of someone’s face in a photograph, mixed with the nude bodies here, to protect the rights of the people’s privacy, and hopefully, deterring those, sexual predators, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The famed Youtuber, “Yu” used Deepfake to make the adult films, the female legislators, the female T.V. personnel, the actresses are all, victims, and, the communities, the public are heating up about having an amendment to prevent this behavior, the Justice Department added an amendment in the Obstruction of Secrets, and written the rule that stated that perpetrators can get from the highest the fake videos, the falsified footages is seven year term in prison, and the rough draft of this new amendment to protect citizens’ privacy is sent to review in the executive department.

Last month, the Criminal Investigations found “Yu” the YouTuber, Chu had falsified the adult footages, and, used the current criminal punishment, of only TWO years, the perp, Chu was out on bail, this caused debates in the society, the justice department believed that a tougher punishment needed to be enforced, to keep the predators from breaking the laws repeatedly, and promised that an amendment of the currently existing law will be out within the month.

The Justice Department added, with the intent to spread out, using computer or other photoshop programs, to falsify the video, the photos, or sound recordings of another, is punishable by a five year sentence and under, the perp taken into police custody, or, the fines of under half a million dollars N.T.; spreading, playing, and/or transmitting of such materials for others to watch illegally, are also, punishable by this law too.

If a profit was made, the individual can get the prison term of no more than seven years, fined in the amount no more than $700,000N.T.; as the punishment become added, the district attorneys in catching the perps, can use the rights to arrest.

The justice department on the second called the judiciary discussion group to discuss, first, setting up the types of crimes, increasing the punishments, then considering the case of the “N Room” of Korea, and set up the punishment terms; based off of the sexual violence laws of Korea, the perps can get a seven-year-prison term max.

And so, this amendment is drafted, out of, necessity, as a lot of the sex crimes are now, online, you can switch out someone’s face, with someone else’s nude body easily, with a photoshop program, and spread it, and, it damages the individual’s, reputation, and, before this law was signed into motion, there’s nothing that the victim can do about it, besides, you can’t prevent these footages, photos, from spreading like a wildfire, across the internet, and this law, that’s newly drafted up, hopefully, it’ll, deter those, predators, from acting out.

More than Twenty-Percent of Children & Adolescents Believe They’d Been Cyberbullied

How social networks became, a new source of, anxiety for these, members of the, younger generations, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

As the outbreaks slowed down, this semester, many school had started holding the classroom sessions, but the masks are still, a needed tool to prevent the spread of the virus across the school campuses.  Now, it’d been two months since the start of the school year, the masks had, blocked off the saliva, and it’d also, blocked off the interactions of children with their own, peers, some of the first year students hadn’t even seen their classmates’ faces, and can only “show their faces” on social media.  But, the children are even more worried over how they are looked upon on social media, and this became, a brand new source of their, anxiety, to even making them the victims of cyberbullying.

The outbreaks not only caused the graduation trips to get canceled, the graduation ceremonies, the first day of school all happened via webcam, that “sense of ritual”, gone, and a lot of the students sighed “there’s no beginning, or an end!”

With the slowing down of the epidemic here, the schools from all around the country started the physical classroom sessions.  But, entering into a brand new semester, in the past, to get to know the classroom classmates, there would be the name tags on the desks, and, by a week at most, everybody knew everybody, and now, all the students’ faces are covered with the masks, and, even though at meal time, they’re allowed to take their masks off, they had to eat with the plastic separators between one another, and, a lot of the students just, left their names on their desks, and even now, the students couldn’t call one another by each other’s right names, to the point of the teachers, miscalling the names of the students too.

A middle school principal told, that there’s no first-year student orientation this year, that there’s no morning school gatherings this semester, the students are “slower to warm up”, and, even as the instructors told the jokes, because they can’t see the facial expressions, the students normally, don’t react, and there’s, just, not enough of that warmth of exchanges that we used to get with each other.

like this??? from online

And even though, almost all the students had a cell phone each, and the internet broke the barriers of interactions, a lot of the students, before school started, got together on the social media, to meet up as school resumed.  But, the therapist, Tseng told, that the children become, ever the more anxious on if they’re noticed on social media now, and this new trend may become a new source of their, anxieties, affecting the children’s level of self-confidence.

The Children’s Welfare League did a survey and found, that due to the outbreaks, the children and adolescents log online for an average of 42.7 hours per week, almost doubled from last year’s 27.2 hour.  But, more than twenty-percent of children and adolescent believed, that they’d been cyberbullied, with the primary way of bullying being “getting named by someone or attacked by someone for no reasons at all”, and there were only, twenty-two percent who would tell the adults, there are at least, twelve-percent that wouldn’t find help from anyone.  The Department of Education listed cyberbullying as a form of bullying in school last year.

Pai, the C.E.O. of Child Welfare League advised students on three things, she’d said, admit and accept, that you just can’t get along with everybody; and, you can use the app or the cell phone systems, to keep track of your own personal usage means of social media, to control the time spent; if you encountered something that’s negative that’s affecting you, then, you need to learn to view yourselves, using an unjudgmental way, to calm yourselves down, so you can, deal with the many challenges that life may bring.

Yeah, that, is another, downside to this outbreak, because everything is online, and, there will be, more cases of cyberbullying too, and, cyberbullying is really hard to prevent, because, you don’t know what you may have said, or posted online, that might get misinterpreted by another.

Cyberbullying: More than Half Believed “It Didn’t Help to Tell Anyone”

What’s, feeding to this trend of, cyberbullying that’s, taken over the world now, as the primary way of, bullying each other, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Children Welfare League posted its results from the 2021 Taiwanese Student Cyberbullying Situation, found that close to eighty-percent of youths believed that cyberbullying is hitting them hard, but, if they’d encountered it, close to sixty-percent of the surveyed believed that nothing is solved by telling, and close to fifty-percent thought that if they’d told, it would only get worse for them.

The C.E.O. of Child Welfare League, Pai mentioned the resolves to this, admitting accepting, controlling the time children spent on the internet social networking, and started up the “I Want to Hear You” LINE official account, with the professional social workers, hearing the children pour out their troubles, to reduce the impacts of the damages from cyberbullying.

Based off of the newest investigations by the Children’s Welfare League, children and adolescents are online for 42.7 hours per week, grew by multiples from last year, reviewing over the details of cyberbullying, there are, more than twenty-percent of adolescents and children who are under attack, and, the primary means of bullying is “attacked or blamed by someone with no reasons at all”, and, the platform of these attacks primarily occurred in the communication apps, took up seventy-five percent; seventy-percent of these personal attacks occurred on social networks.

a child in distress…photo from online

As children and adolescents are being cyberbullied, eighty percent believed that they could trust parents or teachers, but, as cyberbullying takes place, only twenty-two-percent of the victims would tell their teachers or parents, and, there are, around twelve-percent of the victims who wouldn’t tell anybody about it.  Of them, fifty-nine-percent believed that it wouldn’t help if they’d told, forty-seven percent worried that the bullying would worsen if they’d told, and, twenty-six percent who’d been cyberbullied thought about harming themselves.

Although the Department of Education set up the anti-bullying hotlines, the head of school board, Wu stated, that the hotlines doesn’t do anything effective, usually, it’s the results that occurred that didn’t fit the needs of the callers, then, the callers called up the superiors of the units to help.

Wu told, that the Department of Education kept on hosting the seminars on anti-bullying for the school officials to attend, to help the school officials become more aware of the situations.  Pai suggested, that the government should start educating the principals on the anti-bullying policies.  Because in the past, the teachers’ training didn’t focus on matters of how to help children resolve their issues with one another, she’d hoped, that through these seminars, it can help enforce the measures the teachers can find useful, in counseling the students when they have conflicts with one another.

And so, this is still, a top-down thing, because the heads of the school officials aren’t educated enough to handle the matters of cyberbullying, and the kids are, using the methods of covert bullying now, singling each other out, passing the rumors of so-and-so around online, and the WWW is helping to make this worse for the children.

The Incident of YouTuber Changing the Face of a Political Figure, the Bite-Back of an Ordinary Sort of Maliciousness

Written by a retired professor from college, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The YouTube sensation, “Jade”, Chu, sold the face-change footages, creating multiple victims, the president Tsai, spoke again high-tech crimes, stressed, “We can’t just sit and watch this happen, I will start amending the laws, and I call out to the operators of online platforms, to prevent the misuses of videos, footages, to hurt the innocent people.”

I totally agree, with the call out of the president, and how she wanted to, amend the constitution, but, should we also, evaluate, how this happened, how the society and media, due to their differences of views, allowing this sort of a cyberbullying to become a trend, and now, this, “every day evil”, bite the society on the ass, and that’s when we were all shocked that this sort of a bad behavior, can turn any of us, ordinary, law-abiding citizens, into, victims.

Let’s look back at the former president, Ma’s term, how many members of the online community had, maliciously, distorted his photograph, the DDP and the media not only didn’t stop this behavior, instead, they’d, made fun.  To the 2014 Taipei Mayoral race, the candidate, Lien for the KMT, his ads were, made over, to the point of it becoming a YouTube video, getting more hits than the official ads from YouTube, that was the heightened state of this, makeover behavior.

And, with the advances in technologies, the makeover went from the voice-overs to the distortions of the images, as the mayor of Kaohisung, Han’s candidacy of mayor to the president, even, during his impeachment, there were, the distortions of Han in photo by photoshop, this became, a way the YouTubers used to attract the hits.  And this bad behavior was scolded, some of the political figures became the guests of their shows, and all of that, encouraged the bad behaviors.

The German scholar, Arendt, in her “Eichmann in Jerusalem”; Eichmann isn’t an immoral monster, but his malice showed NO active will in maliciousness, this is attributed to his “lacking in the abilities of thought”, he’d not been aware of how awful his behaviors truly were.  His murdering of Jews so cruelly, is no more than the obedience of following the orders, so he could make a name for himself in the Nazi government.

The case with the YouTuber is exactly like so, people believed that these photoshopping of political figures were just for fun, that it caused no harm, and, allowed for it, and, we’re all, encouraging this bad trend.  After the incident of the YouTuber “Jade”, we are all shocked that not just the political figures, we can all become, targets of this, “ordinary evil”, and, this sort of a biting us back can, hurt every one of us who’s kind.

I’m happy, to see that the president, Tsai is taking the matter seriously, and hope, that she could, actively, work to amend the laws, to prevent this sort of bad behaviors from recurring, but I hope more, that the political figures, the news media will, understand the damages this sort of an ordinary evil caused to eh society, and say no to it, and block out this sort of, a behavior.

And so, maybe, you think it’s just, fun, but, this is cyberbullying, and this happened to a political figure, not in school, so it’s, quite far from us all, but, think about it, if it’d happened to your kid, if your kid got bullied in school, and someone posted a YouTube video of your kid’s head with an animal’s body, and made fun, wouldn’t that make you mad?  And this had happened, on a, national level of things, and it’d, rolled from the individuals, to now, a matter of, national concerns here.
