SpinJoy HooperCast: Episode 12

In the SpinJoy HooperCast Episode 12 – BULLIES!?

In SpinJoy HooperCast Episode 12 we look into the less pleasant aspects of being online in the hoop community.
Our experiences (and we hope yours too) are positive in the huge majority of cases. But with any growing online community, differences of opinion will arise.
Cyber-bullying, the hooper version. Yes, bullying does occur online in the hoop community! Caitlyn opens up about her experiences with cyber-bullying. What do we think about online bullying? Why does it occur? How do we do better as a growing group of varied individuals?
