There is an ignore button in your profile. Use it and you don't need to read the post/s you don't want to.

Sometimes you have read the post before you find you don't want to.

bullying is a very big thing in this world and it is happening from our world leaders to the little folks of this world and sadly it is going to be there in the future..

 

Alot of us would have been bullied as kid and some still cop bullying through there Adult life and some can  not get past the idea why they are being bullied for whatever reason.

 

i can remember 1 lad i grew up, he wasn't the brightest lad at school from primary school through to his early working life and sometimes this lad still cops fair amount off bullying.  The thing is this lad could not handle any jokes or understand wether it was made in jest or not and often misread the situation, many people told this lad and even those that bullied him to not re act to the bullies as they often are just pushing the buttons to so how far one can be pushed.

 

This 1 day i can remember  well,  this young lad he had to cysts taking of his ear lobes and one of his bullies for an hour on the bus to about lunch time that day just didn't stop, i could see it in this lads eyes that he was about to blow his lid , but the bully kept going the lad just seen red and grabbed the bully and with 2 arms this lad grabbed his tie and pulled the bully to towards his chest and next minute the lad flew his head back then brought his head forward and head butted the bully so hard and copped him sweet between eyes..   the bully was about to hit back at the lad and next minute  the bully fell to the ground....   this lad stood in silence and could not say a word for his defence but he knew he had done the wrong thing and had thought he had killed the bully.. an ambulance was called and the bully was taken to hospital with a shatter nose and his eyeballs sitting on his chest,  wasn't a pretty sight...

 

The Lad was very lucky that day that the bully made a recovery and both lads apologised to each other and went through the remaining years as ok friends.

 

The lad copped a Saturday detention  12 straps to the hand  6 on either hand in front of a school assembly and was very very lucky not to be suspended or expelled from school

 

on top of this his parents also sent him to psychiatrist  as to work out why the lad fired up in this way

 

I even knew this lad got him self  in strife at times through his working career in his younger years however he did learn to control that temper very well before he left school.

 

from a work incident where he  was applied more bullying has some what left him into a shell, that he feels he can no longer talk or hold a good conversation with anyone for the fear that someone is going to give him a very much a hard time and something  terrible will happen if his demons show again... He often feels that he has no confidence and often shows the lack of confidence and find the positives with in himself   

 

to me that is not much of a life, however i have stuck by this lad for alot of years and still have a beer or 2 with  the lad...

 

 

Sometimes we all think something as joke , myself included can be funny in our heads and we may get a few others luaghing along the way with us , specially if we are hanging crap on them.....However the person that receives these jokes etc may not see it in the way some of us do... no one can quite tell wether the person knows its a joke or some one just taking the micky out of them..

 

it is no good saying ya sorry when one commits suicide as a result of bullying as a joke or hanging crap on one

 

 

we all have or torments in life some of us know how to react and some of us re act differently

 

the problem lies in ways when someone knows how to push your buttons and make you react , they will always target  you  to get there kicks out of ya

 

 

ya all great people enjoy life we all dont need to be enemies

This fairly typical of a Maxx comment. Guys like that are always rude and obnoxious. You meet them in pubs, too. Always have something to say, but not really contributing to the overall conversation. Yes, on odd occasions, they're funny, but usually barely raise a groan.

All part of the community, whether online, in the pub or at the club. You don't have to associate closely with them, even though you can hear them.

Not the sort of person I'd choose to have a beer with, but that's not to say that others feel the same.

We are all different, with different viewpoints and tastes. If you choose not to converse with some other individuals, you don't have to.

In a written forum like this, it can be hard to know the difference between a harmless sledge and a cutting insult. Often, the only difference is in how the recipient takes it. Like so many others, I've had a few adverse reactions to comments I've made when I didn't intend to be hurtful. That also applies when we gang up on somebody.

So, I try and apply a filter to what I say: if I wouldn't say it to your face while we're having a drink, perhaps I shouldn't say it at all. That filter may get a rose tint at times, depending on how many drinks I've had, but I try and remain sensible.

So Max, if I don't respond to your comments, it's just because I'm ignoring you because I think you're an arsehole.


Madam you drew a line in the sand about what you deemed acceptable.... brave some might say foolhardy....
Max's comment was purely directed at his mates whom he has played golf with nothing to do with OB....
The reply quoted is basically a personal attack.... I'm not defending any prior mention of an item that I don't have on my garage but Madam you drew the line...


OB have a lookie see at the Charlotte Dawson topic. .. a close look
OB have a close lookie see at anything to do with PJ aka L4G and ask yourself who was responsible for the hats that a lot of golfers here have and wear with pride
OB do a search for a topic Max put up about his mate and his battle with cancer..
OB I've got nothing else but before you call somebody an arsehole consider all......

Ummm in general those you don't know treat with the same respect you would like to treated with... those you know you can throw mud at.... Pom losing Vision test balls, Kuwi for being a ditch jumper, Barnacle for being desperately unlucky and having the most overrated excessively long sig known to mankind, Goldy for having long drive ability etc etc...

But Madam you have drawn the line and the same should be for both side of the line...
Your call mate

Peg with due respect.

 

I did not reference Max specifically did I?  Which comments are you referencing about Max?

 

OB calling him an arsehole?  Well Max can be at times (I sure he would agree;)and I dont see him being called that in this instance is a personal attack on the same level of continual ongoing abuse over numerous threads and months the same thing.

 

There had been ongoing personal attacks on Tol- right or wrong - by a select few.  There has been the ongoing comments about the garage door and OB (I was actually part of that earlier on) but enough is enough and they are both getting very old, (the comments that is) and that is where the line is drawn.

 

Two different examples but I felt best to deal with both at same time.

 

The rest of the bantering is and always will be part of this community. Most are friends here and its how we show our friendship to others we like.

 

Are we all going to be invited to each others homes for dinner (BK was brave) probably not but that is not what this place is about. We all have a a story on what and why we are on this site.

I've been around forums a fair while, this one not so much these days.

 

Rarely have IMO seen "bullying", however what I have seen a lot of is the following:

 

- make a "stupid" comment

- get called on it

- dig a bigger hole

- refuse to admit mistake

- cop a bit more

- sook it up deluxe and claim that there is some sort of conspiracy

- leave threatening never to return

- return

Geez, who wants to be a forum moderator, hey?

 

I can see where Pegasus is coming from, and same for Madam.

 

Interestingly, the central party, Maxx / Cats are .. seems to have his own take on things.

 

If nothing else, this little ah, exchange, just goes to highlight the nuances of online communication, and how we respond, read, and interpret what we read.

 

By and far, this forum is civil, when compared to some surf forums I've encountered in the past. Let's not lose sight of the fact that, like life, 99% of the exchanges are taken as meant, and people get on as one big happy family. It's the extreme edges and issues that need the guiding hand of a forum moderator, and while, we may not agree with their decision or direction, we need to respect it and move on ... otherwise, put your hand up and take on the role of moderator!
