This is something I generally don't understand about cyber-bullying in general. People have the ability to click, "block", "defriend" or whatever the button may be and presto, the rude comments are no longer seen. Perhaps some people truly think if they respond by saying, "please stop, you're hurting my feelings", the person is going to think, "uh oh, I've saddened him/her, I better stop and apologize". If it's a bully, that's not going to work, a 8 year-old would probably know that. Again, it's something I don't understand so I'm in the same boat as you.
