Announcement from the National Council

S.A.M. Condemns Cyber Bullying


In a strong resolution the National Council of The Society of American Magicians officially condemned  “Cyber Bullying.”
The National Council of the Society of American Magicians has determined that various chat rooms and social media have been improperly utilized as outlets for cyber bullying which targets magic, magicians and youngsters who are interested in magic.
Various  magic forums serve a good purpose in sharing ideas and thoughts which help to improve the skills of the performer, some web sites either allow, tolerate or permit performers to be the victims of absurd, hateful and hurtful attacks against a fellow performer.
The National Council of the Society of American Magicians hereby adopted the following resolution condemning Cyber Bullying:
The Society of American magicians opposes and condemns Cyber Bullying in any and all forms including but not limited to all forms of hate speech, the use of words which attack physical appearance, gender, religious belief, sexual orientation or nationality and opposes all kinds of needless and hateful cyber bullying resulting from the publishing of private information on magic related web sites.
