This story is one of the most awful things I've read in awhile. Really, read the whole thing. If you've got kids online ... if you've ever left a comment in haste that you regretted ... if you've ever felt cyber-bullied or been a bully yourself ... just read it.

It should give us all (a much-needed) pause.
