@Karen_C_Wilson I like your point about the golden rule in reverse. I guess the difference is constructive feedback. i don't think the response, public or private has to be mean-spirited so long as it is honest and thoughfully stated. I know that may go against the grain especially when you don't feel objective but we have to avoid becoming that which we dislike.

@Danny Brown I completely agree about the stopping the crap. I guess the only way to deal with a bully is to stand up to him. Yeah, you might get your butt kicked...but, on the other hand, you could stop him dead in his tracks. Either way, it probably needs to be done.
I have never thought of this issue in terms of rewarding silence but it's an interesting perspective. It's hard to challenge a bully on his/her own turf when surrounded by a mob of adoring fans. The illusion of anonymity also exacerbates this because people feel free to spew bile without consequence. Part of me felt for a fleeting moment that "well, no one is forcing you to interact with these people or be a part of their circle" but upon further thought...there is still a part of you that wants to see a bully knocked down a peg or at the very least publicly own the fact of who/what they are. Thanks. You've given me plenty of food for thought.
Very useful information. Thanks for sharing!
