I want to start a Suicide Help Hotline for victims of cyberbullies who are thinking of committing suicide.

That gives them helpful instructions on how not to fark it up and accomplish the job.

/That was a Gallic jest.

Big Beef Burrito: Good. The world needs more hands-on bullying. Enough of this lazy-ass cyberbullying shiat.

"Turns out, in 93.43% of her 533 trials, the student decided not to post the comment."

Her control ("baseline") group was asked if they wanted to post a mean comment.  Her experimental ("rethink") group was asked the same question, and if they said "yes", were asked to rethink their decision.  Then most of them changed their minds and said they wouldn't post it after all.

But we don't know how many of the control vs. experimental groups actually would go through with it and post a mean comment.  I guess there are ethical issues in letting the experiment go that far.  But still, maybe 93% of the students wouldn't actually go through with posting a mean comment in real life, even if they originally said they would, and the "rethink" experiment is just identifying those individuals.

She should kill herself.

"Rethink"? That's the name of your product. That's farking stupid. I can't believe your parents unchained you and let you out of the basement.

This would have been an interesting story if it... you know... included the "HOW".

This is not an invention:
"People should think before they speak."

This is an invention:
"Here is how to make people think before they speak.  I've created a system which which clicked does x,y,z... tada!"
