We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Staffbox | What’s the best way to deal with cyberbullies?


Kathy Mueller: A cyberpunch right in the kisser.n

Nick Clark: Run and tell their cybermommies?

Jamie Gadette: I’ve learned (the hard way) that it’s better to just walk away. Give “anonymous” an inch …

Stephen Matney: Probably not by hiding in a cybercorner cybercrying like I would’ve done in cyber-junior high school.

Doug Kruithof: Hmm … with a polite, yet firm, stroke of the “delete” key.

Mark Ludemann: Ctrl+Z.

Scott Renshaw: Hire my cyberbodyguard?

Cody Winget: Sic my cyber big brother on their nameless, faceless, anonymous, chickens—t asses. My cyber big brother plays fantasy football and baseball, so you know he’s tough.

Ben Rosch: Find some random insecurity and exploit it until they cry themselves to sleep every night.

Jesse James Burnitt: Create a cyberbully-eating digital monster to devour them. Nom, nom, nom.

Nathan Levinson: Give ’em the e-bird and an iPoke.

Jackie Briggs: You post a picture of Chuck Norris and then politely type, “Now, what did you say?”

Marc Brancaccio: GFYS ;)

Cesar Guzman: Remember: You have the power to click “delete” on that horrible e-mail. You have the ability to block someone—so do it!

Holly Mullen: If they are male, I like to make references to their itsy-bitsy man junk. No seriously, it’s best to ignore them, right?

Bryan Bale: Ignore them. Starve them of the attention they crave. Don’t stoop to their level.

Bryan Mannos: Easy! Reconsiculate their IP through a miagidoe intertwine leveraging manipulator, reversing their PTR record into that of an North Korean address. Last time they bully you! tttt
