Abusing Technology: Is There Any Way Out?

There was a news story in the papers about a XIIth standard student being suspended from school for three months due to inappropriate comments on the social networking site Facebook.
Reportedly, this boy had got low marks in his mathematics paper and went on to post his answer sheet along with the female teacher’s photo on Facebook with rude and abusive comments. Controversial Technology 2018 15 other of his classmates chipped in with their comments. The school quite understandably went on to suspend for three months all 16 of the students for such a behaviour.
As we get more freedom to express ourselves and power better than ever to be heard with every innovating technology in the shape of blogging, social networking etc., there undoubtedly is a case for being more responsible with what we say and how we behave in our online or virtual existence as well. The above case is a perfect example of how technology can be misused to take out personal frustrations, venting out loud and probably satisfying our anger which otherwise we never could. This gives anyone and everyone a chance to be The King! But only in the wrong perspective.
I do feel strongly that stringent action that would deter any such misdeeds in future is a must to set precedence. Probably this Big Data Analytics Computer Science would set an example to remind us to stay within our limits and not cross the line with whatever freedom we today enjoy.
This is just one case that has come to focus in a situation like this. But it is not wrong to infer that such a thing is in fact quite commonplace with the youth of today and would go unnoticed or unpunished on numerous occasions.
One can only hope that good sense prevails and all of us be more cautious and exercise some restraint in our actions.
