Teenage Insults, Scrawled on Web, Not on Walls

Tamar Lewin:

Formspring is one of many question-and-answer Internet sites that are widely used to find, say, the calorie count of avocados. But Formspring spread like wildfire among young people, who used it to for more intimate topics — or flat-out cyberbullying.

I guess I was clueless that kids were using it for this. I have an account and so far no one has even asked me a thing (guess you have to be somewhat famous or a teenager).
