I admit i have been on both sides of this coin. As a young grade school child i had been bullied...for being small...i am still short. but i have been a witness to (and didn't do anything about an incident in high school) went to an all girls catholic high school, with nuns. the older nuns were study hall moniters. one day there was a ruckus in the room and the sister tried to get control...her dentures fell out of her mouth and were grabbed by a student and thrown around the room ... when they were thrown at me ... i didn't want to touch them ... so they were taken and tossed somemore...i wish i would have taken them and given them back to her. i could have prevented another person's suffering and i did nothing...

Not to judge....cuz if you still think about it, must have upset you. I am no judge, but if that's all ya got girl....u a saint.

I have always stuck up for the underdog, but a few, let's callthem nerds...needed help, I gave that help..but the vig was....I owned them, never did anything horrible to them but they knew the deal and took the lesser of the evils...moi!

More mental anguish than physical..the guys who got picked last for dodgeball,you know the type...good and willing screens they were...lol

Both. I enjoyed both greatly in the past.

Being bullied in both school and online allowed me the opportunity to bully back harder because he or she started it and two wrongs always make a right regardless of what people say (my line of thinking at the time).

Being a bully in both school and online was also fun because I got to see people act like little bitches.......while also getting a measure of revenge.

At current however - I don't consider myself to be a bully or bullied. I'm too busy with my career, marathon training, chess training (lol), and investing, to care about any disparaging remarks thrown my way......if there are any. Oddly enough, I don't really feel compelled to bully people and be a dickhead to people as much as I want to. I can't help but feel bad now when I do it and so I had to stop (conscience starting kicking in a bit around the 2008ish mark. Booo).

Would much rather just focus on achieving my goals in the 4 different areas of life that I have chosen.

Thanks Wildfaery,

Same to you. To be completely honest - I don't really like engaging in conflicts of any kind any more......and pretty much only respond if it's coming my way (which very rarely happens nowadays anyways). Even with that in mind, I usually don't get bogged down in that sort of stuff anymore.

Living in South Korea for one year (2007) gave me a bit of a different perspective on things and so I tried to carry that going forward.

Whenever I encountered a bully like Blob MacKenzie I always said, "Dude? What's with the aggression? It's all good."

I once had to tell Rats "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me."

Thanks for asking, I have come to the conclusion that bullying is wrong.

And you best buy into that Eddy because i DO know where you live. :hmmm:

I was on both sides of it...

When ever I hear this anti-bullying stuff I cant help but think we are all turning into a bunch of pussies.....

I mean of course there is some stuff that is crazy over the top, but what kid doesn't get teased a little growing up?

When I was 10 or 11, my parents sent me to Scotland to stay with my grandmother.

The first day I arrived I went to the park and some kids started picking on me. I went back and told my Gran (looking for some sympathy) and much to my surprise she raised an eyebrow and said "whats the matter with yer own dukes" anyway I went back to the park shit kicked one of the kids and felt like a million bucks.

My grandma is dead now but that is one of the things she did that really stuck with me. It really was the best lesson you can teach a kid.

Fight your own battles and don't be a fucking pussie.

The over coddled kids who don't learn that lesson will get ripped apart in the real world when their parents aren't their to to save them from the "adult" bullies who push them around in very different ways.

Obviously there is exceptions but for the most part it is really good for kids to stand up for themselves and fight their own battles.
