    Yes and it is treated as such in my workplace. Hope things get better for you soon

    So what...? Are you forced to be friends with everybody? If yoy like someone are you expected to be friends with them? What's meaner? Telling someone you dont like them or just ignoring them and hope they take the hint?

    No you aren't supposed to be friends with them but at work you are supposed to include all team members and have the decency to listen to everyone.

    Ignoring someone anywhere else might be ok if that's your (general your) style but in the workplace it's bullying and against the law.

    It's not about being 'friends' as such but about being a courteous and respectful colleague. If it's a team of 10 and only 1 person is deliberately left out then yeah, its hurtful and rude. You don't have to be best buds but you can be polite and include someone. It's also the professional thing to do. Saying "So what?" is dismissing the OP's obvious feelings of hurt.

    If you're in a situation where you see this person every day, work together or study together or whatever, then it's just good manners to get along in whatever way you can do you don't rock the boat for *everyone* in the group. Nobody is forced to be friends with everybody but there's a mature and immature way of dealing with the situation. If *everyone* in the group has a problem with this one person, then that will resolve itself in time too, again there is no need for excluding that one person. It's playground bull**** for kids who don't have the life skills and maturity to deal with differences of opinion etc.

    Removing someone from Facebook is one thing -ok. But when combine it with the rest of the disgusting bullying behavior -not ok.

    Just recently got burned by this at work. Apparently even if someone feels excluded it's bullying (no intent needed by the bully aka me). I got pulled up for organizing take away for a few friends (about 8) for lunch every wed. Another 6 ppl (out of a dept of 56) felt excluded they were not involved.

    Bizzaro world. So now we all furtively disappear for lunch and can't discuss our personal life at work any more.
