I bet most of these people who like to bully people online are complete cowards in real life. That's why they hide behind their online pseudonyms. They probably never learned any real life social skills. It's pathetic really. But heck, if that's the only way they know how to build their self-esteem, so be it. Some of us are able to see it for what it is. So when we encourage others not to be boors online, we're actually trying to deter them from disclosing their inferiority complexes.

This secret was divulged the day after the internet was put online for the general public.  Yes, that's exactly what those kinds of people do.  Not sure I agree with leaving it be, though.  Leaving it be is, imo, the main reason the internet, nearly every crack and crevice, is largely the bully's sandbox.  It's mob rule.  You have the truth that you really can't police 'stupid,' but then also, people need to stand up to that stuff.  When we leave it be, we condone it as acceptable behavior.  If you conducted yourself that way at work, you'd get fired.  If you did it at school (presumably when a teacher is around, and not in, like, a bathroom stall or the gym's locker rooms) then you'd get suspended or expelled.  If you did that at a friend or relative's house, you'd get shown the door.  We have to hold to even minimal standards of conduct, and yes, even on the internet.  It does appear that the mods on this forum look out for that sort of thing.  And if someone's a boor, it will manifest itself in other areas as well, so their secret's not really safe, even on a site where their snarkiness can result in punitive action.

As a PS to the OP, that form is hilarious.  I saved it to my computer.  I might alter it a tad, but I laughed my butt off.

This world has always been full of that rudeness , that is what the Gospels are about. Man is inherently evil and we are saved by the grace of God because we were incapable of keeping the law. I have seen bullying done by the teachers when I was young, and the bosses who steal, and friends who are rude as a way of life. Which actually according to God we are all evil.

If you look throughout history you see the so called civilised taking advantage of the so called barbarians, Blacks , Indians Jews and so on , so really what is perceived by the majority as civilized is seen through one way glasses.

did you actually read through the form, Gebre?  Most of the "charges" have nothing to do with bullying but with people taking things WAY too seriously and personally, reading into others' posts and revealing their own insecurities.

For the record, I am a complete coward in real life.  If I wasn't, I would be telling people rude things to their face instead of online.  Unfortunately, that usually ends up with me getting punched in the teeth.  You can only lose so many teeth before it makes life difficult.  Wink

I stopped punching people in the teeth around fourth grade. It hurts way more than its worth.

So we should do OK.

I don't think that is necessarily true - while searching,browsing,and posting online. It is also search for people in real life.

I said the same thing :

I think the main problem is some people consider this sort of fora / forum a joke while others take it seriously, seeking real spiritual dialogue and guidance on them. The problem is the first types. This is a Christian forum not a secular one. All the dialogues of this forum should be consumed under Christian ethics and politeness. The first types will always ridicule, make fun , disregard the spiritual questions of others and be THE TROLLS of the forum. The first category are here for the wrong motives and should be surveiled more strictly. The first type are probably the ones who need medical help. They probably don't go out in secular communities(online or in real life) doing this and come here to express their repressed emotions. They clearly are in disorder(both psychologically and in behaviour) so discipline is their medicine. Forum discipline and strict moderation can do nothing but help them, and help improve the forum, and help the people who are here for the good reasons. This is the solution by far. The forum off-topic trolls the "disordering" types, need discipline. They are sick and need treatment and need to let the rest who seek real spiritual dialogue in peace and stop disturbing them.
