Being a woman, especially a woman of color, raises one's risk of cyber harassment - the intentional infliction of severe emotional distress through persistent online speech. The University of Maryland studied online attacks occurring on an Internet chat medium and found that users with female names received, on average, 100 "malicious private messages" - defined as those with "sexually explicit or threatening" language - for every four received by male users. User gender had a "significant impact" on the number of malicious private messages sent and "no significant impact" on other kinds of attacks, such as attempts to send files with viruses to users, the study said.

Days after operators of Baltimore's Senator Theatre accused former owner Tom Kiefaber of trespassing at the movie house and harassing workers, Kiefaber was arrested Monday at the site. Police were called to the York Road theater Monday morning where Kiefaber was being "unruly and inappropriate," said Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. He was making threats and refused to leave, Guglielmi said. Kiefaber was charged with trespassing and taken to Central Booking downtown.

Two Jewish brothers won a $115,000 settlement from a Texas-based human resources firm after alleging that they endured religious-based harassment - including verbal and physical abuse - while they worked at an office in Harford County, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Wednesday. Brothers Scott and Joseph Jacobson detailed several complaints, including being called "dirty Jew," "dumb Jew," "stupid Jew" and other anti-Semitic slurs by managers and co-workers while working at an office for Conn-X LLC, a cable TV service provider in Edgewood.

I agree completely with your editorial of Nov. 3 ("Mug-slinging campaigns in city were short on issues"). and would like to comment further. While it was quite a "mud-slinging" campaign of gigantic proportions, I wonder if anyone else noticed the two policemen in full uniform with the Moe election workers (parked cruisers in full view) at the community center on Election Day? While I fully support the police force exercising their political freedom, I thought that they should have been in "civvies" while doing so without the use of taxpayers' money for their transportation.
