Query:   Hi -

First, thanks for taking the time to ready this. Cyber Bullying has obviously gotten a lot of attention recently. I'm doing some research on my own on possible applications of new technology to identify/prevent Cyber Bullying before it actually happens.

Maybe you get this question a lot, but has there been any research into the words/phrases used by Cyber Bullies or what might be termed aggressive/abusive behavior? I believe this would also include conversations/multiple messages where a pattern of language activity is occurring.

Any insight into existing research or folks conducting such research would be very helpful.

Kindest Regards,

- Greg Hoelzer
