    Yes this is in response to The Funk, aka Nick (allegedly).

    Now I fully sympathise with people bullied at school, college, and life in general. And yes it follows to social networking because bullies will follow you anywhere.

    People are bullied for their looks, financial reasons, socio-peers relations, intelligence and sexuality.

    But when you come to a BB you bring with you your life, but let the users know only what you put forth. No one here is bullied or picked on for who they are, only how they act.

    I guarantee some of our most popular posters here have serious social problems because of any of the reasons above, but a BB is actually the most equal social outlet because it is only weighed on the quality of your personality.

    If you want to argue that socio-economics, job and looks make for the popularity of a poster, than why not create an alternate reality for yourself. Let's weigh this:

    Sipawitz is (supposedly) a well to do guy that made his money during the dotcom's and is now semi retired and golfs. Great life. But he has never proven to be rich, he could be lying... who knows. Really who cares. Sipa is a good poster, rarely fights, unless Texi is around and walks a mature BB line.

    GHP is for all we know, a poor destitude islander who posts from a shady internet cafe. Yet portrays themselves as a BBW who has housekeepers and expensive tastes. We love GHP for her personality, not her money and job.

    Otherside of the coin.

    Blairg is broke, has too many cats (in my opinion 1 is too many) and lives in a shitty Canadian apartment. People bust his balls about these problems, but he takes it in stride with good attitude and he was honest about these parts of his life. He could be living in a mansion, but wants to play the role of a broke 20 something for some odd reason. Blairg is busted on, but gives it as good as he takes it.

    Anyone here has the opportunity to stay as quite about there personal life as they chose or outright lie, as Kellyg did and be ousted when uncover for follies. But that is the risk of portraying a hot chick.

    Yes mods can be power hungry idiots, just like cops, but they are not going to target people staying in the letter of the BB law, they will over punish offenders, not the user keeping to themselves. In contrast to the norm, a mod that randomly just trolls likely won't be a mod for long in a place like this. Everyone here is judged by what they chose to write, you have no one to blame but yourself if someone dislikes you, or in turn if the entire board hates you. Dawg, Monk and Naz are all honest, and I don't envision them with monicles as diabolical masterminds organizing to screw over a user of the month for shits and giggles, they are trying to make the board the best possible location to post and keep users happy.

    Oh and fuck HAL haters.

    So, where did I miss your point on bullying? I agree that I am probably handsome, rich and powerful IRL and just play a doofus here but what does that have to do with bullying?

    No one gets picked on for no reason on a BB, you get what you deserve because it is all about what you post.
