Default Please don't "type" about others behind their back

It's basic manners. We are taught growning up that it's not nice to talk about others behind their backs. Well, the same should be said here, in the forums... Please do not "type" about others behind their backs.

I've seen a bit of this going on, and it's just down right rude and mean. People 'pointing fingers' about other members, making jokes, or making unkind comments. And they are doing this in threads and on profile messages for anyone to see. It's extremely rude and unkind, and is a way of intentionally trying to hurt the 'other' persons feelings.

Please do not do this. Please do not participate in a 'conversation' where someone is doing this. It does get around, and is very hurtful and disrespectful.

Just because you are 'hidden' behind a computer monitor and typing, does not mean you can throw basic curtosity and kindness out the window.

Thanks everyone for reading.

I haven't seen anything like that personally, but since this is a public forum, I would call that in their face rather than behind their backs. ???

It's still bullying and if it's on someone's profile where they don't go, it's technically behind their backs.

Wow MamaGirlNh! I have certainly never seen this but I would hope that weather it is in the open forum or on someone's profile page that it is reported this is a family site and that would fall into cyber bullying in my eyes, there is the rule we all learned by our parents "Do unto others as..." along with "If you have nothing nice to say then say nothing..."

It certainly is bullying either way. What I was trying to say is it's just that much worse because it is available for all to see including the person who would be hurt.

Wow, I thought some of us were out of high school.....LOL....I guess some are not....Good thread MamaGirl NH....That is just waaay too much drama. Behind their backs....in their face.....either way it is rude and uncalled for.

I love and the people on it and try to be respectful to all. I know there are all different age ranges here and on .....I would hope if someone had a problem with me....they could pm me or tell me under a post......I don't have time for all that....I believe what my mother taught me as a child.....

If you don't have anything nice to say......DON'T say anything at all....

I have not seen this happening, probably because I don't really go into the more social threads. I probably should, though. Yes, we (in general) tend to think that because we are hidden behind a monitor that we can really do whatever we want.

We need to remember that there are real people (children) on the other side of the forum. They have feelings just like we do and can get hurt very easily.

Let's be nice out there!

Default Re: Please don't "type" about others behind their back

I could not say it better. This is cyber bullying. It's not allowed here in WI (and there are actually laws that govern the cyber bullying issues). It is something that should be reported if you see it, and I think most members here in WI are very good about that. I know that sometimes everyone here doens't play by the same set of rules, and that bullying does happen. Those are the cases I'm talking about. I've seen it, and it's just so wrong. I am certain that those instances are dealt with quickly by the WI staff, but I just wanted to give a reminder to everyone... even if you are having an off day, and someone here does something that gets you really upset (or you shake your head and think "gee... how could they ...) We never have the right to try and bully or tease and make fun of others. Whether directly to the individaul, or in a round about way with profile messages or in another thread, commenting about what 'so and so did'. Thanks everyone
