Check out this well-put rebuttal to an Australian anti-sexting campaign, taking a look at the multiple actors complicit in cyber bullying and harassment.

This is why I stick to disjointed body shots and anonymous screen names when putting my shit out there.

Cool video, and something we definitely don't consider enough - we condemn bullying while also gossiping about others and passing on incriminating information, and that's just as bad.

The point is to show potential sexters that their pics may go public with unintended consequences. I think that adding in additional messages about forwarders would make the ad less effective.

If that's the case (and I can see your point), why not make several ads that tackle the diverse situations discussed in the rebuttal? I think that this kind of rebuttal arises because this is the ONLY ad.
