Why be a forum bully .
Many forum bullies use the internet as a release mechanism for their real-world anger or frustration .
You cannot shout at your boss .
Human nature is such that we respond more quickly and more strongly to negative comments. In this way, forum bullies are the ones that get the most attention and the most followers..
Report bullying behavior to the administration - pointless personal attacks will quickly ruin a perfectly good online community..
Many people act as if reporting bullying behavior is somehow cowardly, or is a suppression of free-speech. That is not the case at all .
Bullying and personal attacks are not free-speech, rather it is verbal abuse. .
The more bullying there is, the more bullying it will attract..
The only way to fight negative verbal attacks is by dispelling it with humour .
Most of us do not think of ourselves as bullies. We are all heroes in our own minds .
The key though is to recognize those negative actions and to take steps to correct them..
When we commit negative acts and bullying behavior, we not only hurt others, but actually end up hurting ourselves most..
Today, many of us see nonresistance as a weakness..
After all, if we turn the other cheek, we may just keep getting slapped..
Bullies try to turn everyone into their likeness .
You know who you are .
