Seymour Rips Huckleberries, Press Blog

During Coeur d'Alene School Board meeting, Terri Seymour spoke out tonight against the "bully blogs" (part of the anti-bullying presentation). SReporter Scott Maben provides this report:

“It is huge in Coeur d’Alene. When you see the blogs on the Coeur d’Alene Press and especially on Huckleberries, it saddens me to see – I don’t blog; I do read them. But it is unbelievable how nasty and vicious people can be. And here we are as a school district trying to teach our children not to do this, not to cyberbully, not to bully, when the parents and the adults are doing exactly what the students are learning to do. And so I would ask that our community step up to the plate to encourage the Press and The Spokesman-Review to rein that in, because it’s vicious and this is what we are teaching our children, and it’s shameful. It saddens me to be a part of the community that there are so many vicious people out there that can’t treat each other with respect.”

  • DFO: After the candidates forum at the Mica Grange Hall, I told Terri that she may be confusing legitimate, pointed criticism for cyber-bullying. Obviously, she didn't agree. I try to keep things between the lines here without killing the spirit of the discussion. It's not an exact science.

Question: Do we have a cyber-bullying problem here at Huckleberries Online?
