US Centred[edit]

Sexual harassment is not only punishable in the US, though the History section gives that impression. Perhaps some other countries' harassment laws could be detailed?

Subsections have been created. Shawnc 01:07, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Further to the above comment, I have added a page on Harassment as covered kkkkk by UK law. I'll let some-one else judge what they think of it as it, is the first thing I've uploaded anything to Wikipedia, before I add in a link on the page to it. jennyemily.

Adding Canada and UK still makes it quite US centered (As those are the two closest society you coul find). It would be interresting to have an overview of what exists in europe, japan, china, russia ... well, in other cultures than US. ( US, canada and UK and pretty much the same culture anyway. Europe is pretty close to.)

Please add a link to[edit]

Subliminal Harrasment[edit]

While out surfing I found this informative howto on the lessor know form of harassment called subliminal harassment:


Since it is basically an american term and it not in use in Europe or elsewhere, should it just be mentioned under the american section, or under the general legal section as shown? Comments appriciated. Shot info 23:31, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

My pleasure. There are forms of harassment SLAPP suit laws elsewhere. We'll have to expand this. Ilena (chat) 00:16, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
Actually, it doesn't read too bad, although I would write "for example, SLAPP suits" (after all, they an example "legal harassment" in the context of the article Harassment). It does allow a dovetail into the SLAPP article. The SLAPP article is probably the "better" location for the discussion initiated above. Comments? Shot info


Does anyone have info about the weird change in pronuncation of the "harassment" that took place among media outlets during the 1980's? 02:25, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Telephone Harassment[edit]

Shouldn't we have a section on telephone harassment? I have an ex who keeps calling me up and hanging up. She's even done it from her workplace. She just did it again and I'm going to get her fired and arrested for it. During sentencing, the judge will no doubt severely scold her and perhaps even laugh at her--unless she actually uses the only defense that would help her, which is that she is in fact mentally ill. Regardless of how it's adjudicated, however, telephone harassment is a real problem, even in the age of Caller ID, and I'd be happy to write this section of the article if others agree.

other views on harassment?[edit]

There should be something in here about how some right wing and libertarian groups like FIRE argue that the modern definitions of harassment are too politically correct, and that they limit individuals' freedom of expression and therefore are modern-day censorship. I'd put it in, but I just can't find a place to stick it. It definitely is a fairly common view, and I think it deserves a mention, regardless of whether or not you agree with it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Blue bear sd (talkcontribs) 19:30, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Maybe an entry regarding Thin-Skinned?[edit]

In politically charge discussions like this, it's clear that thin-skinned should rate a wiki entry. There are certainly many 'false positives' and few would argue that males, most often, are the innocent accused. While harassment is surely a negative to be addressed, the minimal consequences for those making a false accusation surely warrants closer scrunity.

Wikipedia Harassment[edit]

Shouldn't there be something, at least a disambigous redirect to policy and warnings, for harassment on Wikipedia?? where do I find the warnings for this specifically??GabrielVelasquez (talk) 16:27, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Etymology section seriously needs rewriting.[edit]

At the moment the text of this section reads as though it's been produced either by someone with a weak grasp of written English or by running foreign-language material (I suspect French from some of the syntactical and grammatical constructions) through an automatic translator such as Babel Fish.

If people agree that it needs attention, I'll try to knock it into shape over the next week. --Kay Dekker (talk) 18:45, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
