RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- News 4's Fact Finder team brought you a story about 19-year-old Rachel and her 15-year-old sister who say they were cyberbullied on the website TheDirty.com. The post accused the girls of a variety of illegal and immoral activities - which they say are all lies. We also tol you how the site - described as a gossip and entertainment site - isn't legally responsible for what users post.

David Gingras, the attorney for TheDirty.com, watched the stories. 

Gingras has since deleted the post featuring Rachel and her sister from the site, but he stresses that cyberbullying is a deeper problem - and the solution starts by teaching kids and teens not to take compromising pictures or share too much personal information online.

"Removing a post is not a permanent solution; it just makes the problem invisible temporarily," Gingras said. "If the person who submitted the original post sees that it's gone, there is nothing I can do to prevent them from re-submitting it to TheDirty.com or any other similar site."

News 4 told Rachel the post is gone and she is definitely happy about it, but she still plans on filing a criminal report with local law enforcement so whoever wrote it in the first place will see the consequences of his or her actions.
