Is it ever acceptable to be a bully?


If you answered "no" to the above, then why do adults feel it is acceptable to bully those with opposing political views? We preach to our youth about the evils of being a bully and then we move into online chat rooms and forums, slinging slurs and vitriol as if we were ladling out soup in a cafeteria. Do you see the hypocrisy in this double standard?

    You could be right Old-Empresario. I tend to meet people who are trying to make connections rather than put people down. But I have seen TV programs about cyber bullies.

    Exactly spot on. I was just told that all I write about is religion and that is so off and totally wrong. Yet I am put in that box.

    I suppose the veil of the "net" allows some the freedom to let out their dark side. I also blame the shock jocks on both TV & radio for spewing hate speech while they collect millions of dollars in paychecks.
