On his campaign Facebook wall, appointed Coeur d'Alene School Board Trustee Brent Regan reports re: a cyber task force meeting that occurred Wednesday. Seems Huckleberries and the Coeur d'Alene Press Online comment sections were mentioned in the same breath of cyber bullying. Regan posts: “Vice Chair (Terri) Seymour (pictured in Coeur d'Alene School District photo) agreed and suggested that Mr. Patrick and Mr. Olivera (sic) be approached on the subject. The question is how we can tell our children not to cyber bully others when the blogs are full of adults who cyber bully?” Regan commented that Seymour had an “excellent point.” Huckleberries heard from another source that Seymour referred to the comment sections for Huckleberries Online and Coeur d'Alene Press as “nasty” — and suggested that the papers be approached to seek to substantively change the current interaction that happens.
Question: Is it possible that the Coeur d'Alene School Board trustees are mistaking online criticism for bullying?
