I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.

Safe computer rule 4:
I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. If I do, I will Log off and tell my parents. If I get such a message, I will not respond. Instead, I will show it to my parents and let them deal with it.
