    Sorry for the bump and double post, but I just saw a powerful bullying assembly at my school this week which was a guy speaking about his son who had committed suicide as a result of bullying/cyber-bullying in Fall 2003 when he was 13. It's just so painful to hear that the kid was bullied over dumb little things even after he died. I saw a lot of people crying in the auditorium. The speaker's name is John Halligan. I don't know if any of you has seen his presentation before.

    Anyway, the definition of bullying has become a lot more loosely defined over the years. Twenty years ago, bullying meant getting beat up behind the dumpster after school. Now every single rude comment is considered bullying pretty much, whether it's to someone's face or online. No. Bullying is repeated physical or verbal abuse from a kid to another kid so the bully can get a reaction. Now if you say "You're an idiot" once to someone or something like that, adults will get all up on you and say you're bullying. Sure, it's not the nicest thing to say, but it's not really bullying. The stuff that happened to John Halligan's son was real bullying. Kids were repeatedly abusing him verbally through words and through Instant Messaging online for over three years until he finally had enough and took his own life.

    I am a bully. But like some of you said, it's sometimes the victims fault. Which it is here. I bully anyone who picks their nose and eats it/passes on germs/sneezes without covering their nose.

    I'm only bullying to educate them.

    Lol. In an other thread you said that you were the victim of bullying.
    Btw oriole, imo it's not a bump if it's in the serious business forum.

    the best way to not be bullied is too become extremely annoying and talkative. I would be a punching bag if I didn't do this

    The way I see it is, the best way to not be bullied is to not be fat. This sounds mean but honestly it's true :p
    Or if you're overweight at least be funny.

    Yo

    To me the only fat men that have a good looking wife are either funny or are rolling in the dough. ;)

    But cyber-bullying is... In my opinion if you are a victim of cyber-bullying you can just turn off your electronic device instead of killing themselves. I mean, i feel sorry for them but... They take it way to far.

    So you're fed up with bullying and to relieve the stress you take it out on someone who pisses you off daily?
    I know what it's like. Everyone at school here are mostly complete ***gots who will flip burgers in 5 years.

    The thing is that cyber-bullying usually isn't a standalone issue. From what I've seen and heard it transitions itself into the real world as well. Killing yourself over text messages seems extremely overboard, but there was probably abuse in the real world related to that also.

    Like the girl who made a video of her putting a used tampon in her mouth (things you can't f_cking un-see). She obviously was getting insults and slander thrown at her on a daily basis on YouTube, but also imagine what happened to her once the video reached popularity in her school.
    There's been reports of her committing suicide, and then some who state she didn't. Honestly, I have no clue if she did or not. But it's just an example.

    The kids revolt me due to their nose-picking-and-eating habits. I tell thm to stop and they pretend I don't exist.
    If I had a knife they would be tasting it...

    bro you gotta learn the rules of school fights
    dont use a weapon unless someone else does first
    dont fight someone weaker than you, unless they are the same age then kick their ***, but dont go looking for a fight with someone its obvious you are going to win against that just makes people think you're an insecure pussy
    dont attack with a group of people, only cowards run in packs, which ironically is an acronym for crip
    no cheap shots

    Not in the physical sense. Can you please use proper punctuation? This is the Serious Business sub-forum.
