    Bringing thinly veiled agendas from closed threads is against the rules and is also not an acceptable culture of the forum.... nor is aggressive posters that cry foul bc everyone disagrees with them.

    Anyway, I'll bow out and leave you to your thread.
    I'm not talking specifically about one thread or poster, just my general observation about many threads from many different posters

    Yeah I know but this is a clear continuation of a closed thread to keep it going, which mods generally frown upon.

    It might be worth remembering that just because the bubhub majority thinks something doesn't make it so.

    There is no nefarious agenda here, except to encourage people to do the right thing where other people's feelings are concerned, human to human.

    Radical I know.

    Totally agree with delirium. I've also been around forever and a day and have found that a few can tend to dish it out but when their opinion is vigorously disagreed with they cry bully.

    Disagreement is not bullying.

    To quote the definitions in the original post, bullying is 'communications that seek to intimidate, control, manipulate, put down, falsely discredit, or humiliate the recipient. The actions are deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior intended to harm another.'

    The key parts are 'deliberate', 'repeated' and 'intended to harm'. Disagreeing with the opinions of others does not fall into those definitions.

    If you read back through carefully you will see that there are several instances where the poster was referred to negatively, and ganged up on, which resulted in a polarisation of the group and this was, IMO, deliberate and repeated, a la 'the angry mob'. It surprises me that anyone would continue to defend this position. The humiliation by reference to past history was definitely there. That's not ok.

    Pretty certain that continuing to talk about closed threads is still a no no.

    We should talk about cyber bullying as it is an important topic, but there should be no references to specific closed threads.

    Starting a new thread to continue an argument from a thread that Moderators have closed is not in the spirit of BubHub.

    I'd like to remind members to use the report function if you come across threads/posts that you feel break our rules rather than post in reply on the forum.

    I'm closing this thread now.
