Close Down 9gag ? A Cyber bullying Website

Messages Sent So Far
9gag is a US hosted website which profiteers from its users defacing pictures of people in order to humiliate and bully them. This website facilitates internet abuse which is sick and offensive and we petition for the appropriate US agencies to get it closed down. One recent example featured on the BBC referred to the abuse suffered by Heidi Crowter, age 16, who has Down's syndrome. The pictures of Heidi featured in the report were created by users from 9gag for the sole purpose to mock people with disabilities. Such intentional malice directed towards the most vulnerable of society cannot be ignored.

This site was created to be funny and it has let the users and its content get out of line and has become a very inappropriate website. It is not rated right for starters and it let's it's users upload whatever they want. This website needs shut down, period.

While I believe in freedom of speech, a moral line must be drawn. If someone's idea of fun is to promote and encourage something that had resulted in countless suicides then it is no longer an exercise of constitutional amendments issue; it is now a criminal one. Murder is not protected in the Constitution.
