Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

View Post

Quite a lot of long time posters left because the bullying was getting too bad.

Quite a lot of newbies quit after their first thread because of the bullying.

We definitely do have a bullying problem on the EF.

Maybe not everywhere or by everybody, or in all cases. But let's not pretend it doesn't exist. Please.
I'm not saying it doesn't exist, I'm saying it doesn't exist where Tony Clifton says it does. I've edited my previous post to, hopefully, make that clear.

Bullying is vile, pervasive, takes a myriad forms and should be tackled. However hurt feelings do not always equate to bullying. Likewise when a lone voice faces a group it does not necessarily follow that said group is a bullying mob.

Sometimes folk cry "bully" when they are losing an argument/ are disagreed with en masse because, I suppose, it's more of a face saver. I don't know. I do know that false accusations weaken the case for the actual instances of bullying. Of which, I agree, there's an awful lot of on here. Also double standards.
