  • Idk... you tell me. I was stalked all over a website, called names, I received crazy PMs and when I reported it to the website admins, they did nothing and even punished me for speaking out against the person when they continued to harass me and others on the website. That's probably not bullying though. That's just bad luck having come across a crazy person on the internet.

  • I guess I would like to know if taking these 'disagreements' or 'not getting along' beyond CM is considered bullying. Is it bullying to threaten other members? Because that can and DOES happen here.

    Also, sending threatening PMs to people. Is that just petty disagreement, bitchiness, or actual bullying. Because I'm pretty sure threats are actual bullying.

  • Yes, I was targeted by a group on here that admitted they were trying to get a few of us banned. It was shady and underhanded.

  • "If you think you are being bullied or stalked then report the people you think are responsible."

    And so what happens when the website you are being bullied on is actually protecting the bullies and punishing you for defending yourself? What if you had been using that website for far longer than the bully and didn't feel as though you should have to be the one to leave? It's just not so simple as some people want to believe it is.

  • "I do think some of you paranoid."

    If I ever get a PM again threatening me, I will post it here to show you all that it really does happen. Just because you think it doesn't happen, doesn't mean it's not happening. Just because you don't believe something to be true, doesn't make it false. Just remember that.

  • "Did you not read where the OP stated it was wrong to PM anyone in that way! "

    Yes, and in the same breath called people paranoid. Whatever, I'm done with anon assholes. Later!
