MIT: SQUADBOX - Anti Cyber-Bullying software  | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Put a squad of trusted friends, volunteers, or paid moderators between the world and your inbox.

Messages only reach you if your squad approves it.

Together, the members of your squad can weather harassment so that you don't feel overwhelmed.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Victims of cyberbullying have a new ally: Squadbox invented by MIT.  Your Squad will pre-filter your email, diverting harassment mail to be analyzed. The safe mail lands in your box. The bad get's flushed.  They also offer @squadbox email accounts.  Here's away to take back control.  Check it out.
