Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

65. I disagree with you. I see bullying in lots of places. Some is blatant and some is subtle.

My definition of bullying is the abuse of others with the intent to intimidate. Name calling is bullying. The bully in this case (not sure why we think it is a male) is clearly trying to intimidate this lady. In my opinion bullies must have an advantage to operate. In this case the bully thinks that he/she is superior to someone with a weight problem. George Zimmerman thought he was superior to Travon Martin because he was a Neighborhood Watch Captain with a gun. IMO he thought he could bully Travon.

My last boss was a bully. He used his position to push people around. He only picked on those that were at a disadvantage or in his mind, inferior to himself.

I have seen DU members bullied off of DU. Baiting, belittling, name calling, and gang pile ons were tools used to "cleanse" DU of those that dont meet the criteria of the Neighborhood Watch.
