I find this witch (okay, Bitch) totally reprehensible, or as Daffy Duck would say "You're Despicable!". You're an adult for god's sake and this was how you acted.
MySpace Suicide: Woman Convicted

A woman has been convicted in a landmark cyber-bullying case after a teenager committed suicide over hoax messages on MySpace.

Lori Drew posed as a fictitious 16-year-old boy called Josh Evans and befriended Megan Meier on the social networking site.
The 49-year-old from Missouri suspected Miss Meier, 13, of spreading false rumours about her daughter.
The teenager hanged herself in 2006 after receiving a message from Josh which said the world would be a better place without her.
Drew was found guilty of three charges of illegally accessing computers without authorisation.
She violated MySpace's terms of service, which require users to provide "truthful and accurate" registration information, when she lied to create a fake profile.
But the jury in Los Angeles could not reach a verdict on a more serious charge of conspiracy.
The case was the first criminal prosecution in US legal history relating to allegations of cyber-bullying.
"This is not about vengeance," said Miss Meier's mother Tina, who described the verdict as a victory.
"This is about justice for Megan - and making sure this does not happen to anyone else. I don't want another family to have to endure this."
During the trial, the court heard that Drew targeted Miss Meier even though she knew the teenager was vulnerable.

"The defendant knew Megan Meier was depressed, suicidal and boy-crazy," federal attorney Thomas O'Brien said.
Drew faces up to three years in prison and a $300,000 fine, although a date for sentencing has not yet been set.
