    A few years ago I was with a team responsible for improving software for creating accurate profiles on internet abusers.
    We were asked to do this without any information except what was written on the net.

    Most people can figure out the basic profile of another person from language, social status, gender etc. And we tried to do the same from written material.

    It is interesting that no matter how much a person pretends, they reveal that and more about themselves.
    The most obvious with abusers is that they are not comfortable with themselves, and seek to inflict or transfer that pain onto others.

    On several occasions, close to completion of the project, we were invited to inspect the premises of those that had been arrested etc. It was interesting how much could be predicted, but I was taken back by how different they appeared in real life, not the tough intelligent cool monsters, but very weakened men and boys - 98% of offenders are male.
    I looked into the eyes of a 25 year old 'monster' and saw a run down and helpless, lost, fatherless child. He has not changed to this date.

    But what can you do? you can't enable them, they are totally irresponsible, even self abusers.

    What do you consider an "internet abuser"?



    I guess I just don't really understand your question


    Newbie to Science, trying to educate myself on this forum and further my scientific knowledge.

    I like to ask a ton of questions so please be understanding!

    I like to think of new stuff and in new ways.

    Cyber bullying - ranges from mild verbal abuse to active stalking and homicide.
