Never heard of her. My wife tells me she was a TV "celebrity" who was disgustingly bullied on Twitter. Its pretty sad that female celebrities are thrown to the gutter when they reach late middle age (with a few exceptions such as Kerry Anne and Lisa). It must have a massive negative psychological affect.

Meanwhile old fogies like Brian Henderson, Bert Newton and Graham Kennedy remain on our screens until they keel over from old age.

I don't think she was thrown into the gutter . She was on the today show 2 days prior . She was never a regular TV person from my understanding , she was a judge on one of those reality programs

She was a outspoken and opinionated women which resulted in the bullying . She apparently had previously tried to take her life .

It's sad that someone sees death as a means of escape

you're right about Ms Dawson being outspoken and opinionated. she had been copping abuse via social media for a few years but also gave it back in spades. she was once married to former Olympic swimmer Scott Miller and we know the trouble that found him. she has attempted suicide in the past I believe. still very sad for her family.

How many old women with grey hair and wrinkles do you see reading the news or hosting a show? (apart from that old lady that presents Australian story). Once the wrinkles start appearing and the hair loses it colour its "boning time" if you are a lady.

It's a sad reflection of modern society when a faceless person can get the better of you

Cyber bullying happens in the GH sometimes. Various levels anyway, but the mods do a good job of keeping it in check. Sadly fb and Twitter don't have mods to keep personal attacks under rein.

What an outrageous claim. You are regularly moderated for breaking forum guidelines.

They are the guidelines of the site. They are not "my rules". And in fact, virtually every forum on the web has these guidelines. Otherwise, the forum community does not work... And you have people not reading or posting when not followed. Which is a problem we are having right now, due to posters who refuse to follow the site guidelines.

I understand GE. I got the impression question was only having a joke. You should see how far he wants to take the joke and ban him for a month.

The suppression of free speech is a form of cyber bullying, you sir are a bully and as RB posted I should demand an apology.

Well, the mods are getting pretty disillusioned with the behaviour on the site and how the moderators are constantly made out to be the bad guys. We just want a good forum, with lots of good footy discussion, lots of alternative views discussed sensibly... We don't like editing material and issuing warnings and bannings. We'd rather people were sensible and moderated themselves. But we will moderate where needed in the interests of the site.
