Trolling vs Bullying

The same?

Different?

Trolls generalize or target the general population or idea, or thought, or subject. Trolls can be bullies. You do not have to act as a bully to be a troll. I can honestly say, the trolls in CM are rather unique, we have what we call the crazy trolls, they don't neccessarily bully people but post insane posts to get a reaction.


BULLYING: making replies, posts, comments to insult, repeatedly criticize, stalk, harrass, bring a person down. Typically several bullies against one person. This is not a troll, bullying and trolling are two different things. Sometimes the trolls are also bullies.

Regardless how much you dislike someone, it is NEVER ok to keep insulting, attacking, and repeating your bullish behavior, online or offline.

I also want to add that creating cliques sometimes causes bully behaviors from those within cliques... Just remember, not everyone ADMIRES your clique... Not everyone wants to be labled the same lable with you HOLD!

Just reading the word BULLY in this group makes me want to gouge my eyes out. We're all grown ass women who aren't, by any stretch of the imagination, required to be here. Log the fuck off if your teeny tiny widdle feelers get hurt.

There are so many bullies in this group it's disgusting. Trolls are odd, sometimes rude or crazy but they are not mean like the bullies.

Cuz when your besties are a bunch of immature bullies on a web forum it really isn't something to brag about.

Good morning, Trollcat.

I agree.  I enjoy a good troll, but the bullying posts just leave a bad taste in my mouth.
