    It isn’t cyber-bullying to create a webpage which says a woman is a bad teacher.

    By that standard, creating a webpage saying Bush is a bad president is cyber-bullying.

    I adore Twilight! I can’t wait for Twilight Eclipse! I’m so infatuated with taylor, lol.
    I still believe that the first movie was better, but New Moon definitely wins in eye candy lol

Got something to say?
