    Bullying, at least at the verbal level, is part of human nature. It won't be going away. I suppose the solution is controlling the problem. It can't be eliminated, because you would have to create a 1984 state where real freedom of speech is eliminated. Also, some bullying might be justified. For instance, everybody makes fun of really arrogant or pompous people. Is that bullying?:cautious:

    I think I will reverse my stand on the issue. If the name calling and whatnot is truly bullying, and not just friendly teasing, like you would do with your brother or sister, then I think it is grounds for a complaint. Unfortunately, since telling makes you a nark, and is considered effeminate in some manly circles, some might be reluctant to press charges.
