Internet cowards become bullies

Ever notice how being able to insult someone without having to apologize is so easy now that we have the internet?
People who can insult bully, and denigrate others without fear of retaliation would never think of doing the same in a face to face meeting.
I was brought up to either say something nice, or something constructive, or keep quiet and say/do nothing unless it is harmful to be neutral..
If we don't like the direction a post is going then we have the option of just picking something else rather than post negative comments.

Great point, problem is those who are looking to increase their post count don't care. I've also seen this done to the point of bad advice.... answering someone else's request for help with information that's just wrong.

You're right. That's the reason I always pretend that I'm standing in front of that person before hitting the "Submit reply" button!

Unfortunately it's my opinion that it isn't just happening online anymore. Seems like there's a lot more rude people than I remember, and I feel the online speak-you-mind culture is bleeding into everyday life.

I'm sorry. (See what I did there) Some people post passive aggressive comments that should be dealt with in a manner some seem to think is negative. Besides it's not completely accurate to assume people wouldn't say some things directly person to person.

Maybe it depends on how big that other person is!

Daddy raised us to be honest and straightforward. His motto was "If you say it----OWN it"

Your word is your bond


If I say/post anything it would be no different if I was having face to face interaction.


Bullies are COWARDS. Plain and simple.
Confront them and watch them stubble over their words---then slink away into the shadows

Iíve watched this cyber bullying on several different forums. Know which ones I havenít seen it on yet, RV forums and my garden tractor forums. Many times on Facebook you can go to a persons page and review what they typically post and understand why they act the way they do.

I have to admit that there are times when itís very difficult not to respond in a snarky manner.

I've always posted in the same way I would respond if I was standing face to face with someone. I'm blunt, honest, and not afraid to point it out when someone is causing their own problem. Everyone says they like honesty, but when it comes down to it, most people don't. Most people prefer a comfortable lie over the truth and will berate you for giving them the truth.


Not everyone who gets called a bully actually is. Bully is a term often thrown around to just mean "someone who offended me in some way".
