7. It ought to be easy for non-bullies to stick up for victims too.

I haven't seen those bully threads in Meta, but it sounds like an interesting bullying technique.

In some instances, an individual will be bullied over legitimate opinions where it's not just debate but gets outright personal. When that happens, I (used to be, now it's expected) am surprised that people just read and never stand up for the victim. Awhile ago I'd scan posts looking for someone being flamed, just to support them. I think the bully becomes not so much the focal point for the victim as the bystanders who did nothing.
