Bully's and Playgrounds

I was on this site about 2 years ago and only used it to find a partner in crime - actually found somebody that I liked and it lasted about one and a half years before I felt the need to move on.

This time around I discovered the Magazine and Blog section - and am having some honest to god fun with my verbal intercourse.

Here is my problem - I think of this site as a playground - it's a fun place for adults to go play. As with any playground there are good kids, bad kids , kids who are more popular, outcasts, clicks and bully's. The problem is - we are not kids - we are adults. Admittedly - adults with thoughts and feelings but adults all the same.
Since we are all grown up - why do we still feel the need to beat-up on those we don't like. There are some questions in the magazine section that are admittedly stupid and non-related and offensive - I may have posted one or two myself - but for crying out loud - if you don't like it - just pass it by - you don't have to get all worked up and be nasty.

I'm wondering if it is because of the point system - if you don't have anything constructive to say - then you have to say something because you have to collect those points. Sorta like the bully that takes the lunch money - or maybe not.

I personally think it is more insulting to be ignored.

Okeydookey - let er rip.

My word , you think that its bad over there ? The Chat room is the ultimate ! Its SO funny to see how socially awkward and unatractive some of the Online "Bullies" are , as well ! Thr Racism , Grammar Whoring , its all pretty rediculous .

Good post. I like the analogy of this being an adult playground...and we do have bullies once in awhile. The difference is that most of us stick up for one another here. Be sure to stop by my blog for BLOGLAND ORGASM......Y'ALL CUM!!!!!! I know I can count on you!
