Kids to get an Internet "Panic Button"

CuteSteveJobs (1343851) writes "Children who feel they are being bullied, harassed or groomed online could call for help instantly using a "panic button" on their PCs under a plan by the Australian Government's cyber-safety working group. The button shall look like a "friendly dolphin", who will connect the child victim instantly to police or child protection groups. Australian Internet Censorship Advocate Hetty "Save the Children" Johnson says the Internet needs something like 000 or 911. Will this be another scheme wasting taxpayer dollars in lieu of parental supervison, or could it actually work? Are 1 in 4 children really sexually abused by the Internet? Can flaming and trolling be classified as bullying?"
