Informing local law enforcement is necessary as they can take legal action if needed. Sharing the situation with your friends can help you feel supported and may provide additional advice. Asking the person to leave you alone and keeping a record of their attempts to contact you is important for evidence purposes. Therefore, all of the above options are recommended when dealing with online harassment.

      No Answer

    Correct Answer
    A. Someone who is nice to new people online
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "someone who is nice to new people online." This is because cyber bullies are individuals who use the Internet to harass, intimidate, or harm others. They may feel better by making others feel worse, use the Internet to put others down, or derive pleasure from provoking or tormenting others. However, someone who is nice to new people online does not engage in these negative behaviors and therefore cannot be considered a cyber bully.

Flaming refers to sending emails or messages with the intention of making someone angry. Harassment involves repeatedly sending mean and nasty messages to someone. Trickery involves deceiving someone into revealing personal secrets or embarrassing information about themselves. Therefore, all three options fall under the category of cyberbullying.

    Explanation
    If you are cyber bullied, it is important to tell a trusted adult about the bullying. This is because adults can provide guidance, support, and help in dealing with the situation effectively. They can also take necessary steps to address the issue and ensure your safety. Keeping the bullying to yourself or not telling anyone may lead to increased stress and negative emotional impact. Not opening or reading messages by cyberbullies can be a good practice, but it is equally important to seek help from a trusted adult. Telling your Internet service provider may also be helpful, but it is not the most immediate and direct action to take.

Additionally, it is crucial to never agree to meet with the bully or anyone you meet online, as it can be dangerous. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above."
