Im half-tempted to not wait, even tho I enjoyed all 3 of TLotR on da big screen 1st; the desire to pirate is *strong*.

Ive enjoyed *most* of the ME-flicks, so I was likely gonna see it anyways.

Yeah, the content is all over the place and when you enter a group, it takes you to the first page. In addition, I see red X's in place of links.

'World’s Ugliest Woman' Proves She’s Anything But In Courageous & Heartfelt Interview

ok, I get that she's supposedly was born w/no body fat (and natch, I dont condone hounding this woman over her freakish condition as its not her fault that she suffers from lipodystrophy), but REGARDLESS OF THAT the standard by which we as a social organism judge attractiveness is *primarily* on a persons physicality, and I can see no justifiable reason beyond outright pussiness (not a word I know, but fuck it) to label any1 who remains honest & holds true to the norm as "a cyber-bully".

she might be a nice lady, but she damn sure aint a good lookin' one.

Well, Tazer, I think that kind of depends on the circumstances. Even if somebody is ugly, there usually no good reason to point it out to them, other than bullying. Unless she was ASKING people if they thought she was ugly, but I kind of doubt that.

Seriously, do you really think "honesty" shields you from being considered a jerk if you just walk up to somebody and say, "You are the FATTEST person I've ever SEEN!" even if it is true? To outline people's faults for them when not asked, and when it serves no useful purpose, IS generally considered rude (especially if said faults are not under their control). I can certainly see circumstances under which it would be considered bullying.

The worst part of this though, is that for some reason we're considering this any form of news?
Why are we so attracted to this kind of grief/misery/unfortunate circumstance porn? It should be beneath us to be so immediately interested in such pitiable piece of non-news.

no, I dont think honesty is a shield for being a jerk.....but if I found an img or video somewhere, put it up on an open forum and made a negative comment about it I dont think that makes U a bully either.

see, it looks like thats EXACTLY wat happened. *thats* where the "cyber-bully" -tag comes from, given her statements made in this interview (start @ 1:11):

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


if this were a case of her getting unbidden emails or the jackass who runs up to her and says "YOU'RE UGLY AS SIN!!", I would agree wholeheartedly, but this looks like stems from her img being posted for a shitfuckton of ppl (YouTube) to see, and while it wasnt the nicest thing to do that certainly doesnt make U a bully.

personally, I like her take on it (altho her "I'll remain strong, and keep putting out books and such" -comment was a bit much, since its not like they will give a rats if she does or not......)

If you say something to for no better reason than to make someone feel like shit, then yeah it's bullying. There's no legitimate reason to say something so harsh to someone, except with the purpose of being hurtful or entertaining yourself at an another's expense.

That type of behavior is indefensible... I don't want anyone to go to jail over it or anything, but to say that isn't a form of bullying is a little bit naive.

Yo.

if saying a negative comment about something for the purpose of making the other person feel bad is bullying, then theres a TREMENDOUS NUMBER OF PPL in the world who would qualify as being 1 that likely wouldnt have ever thought they did......including a shitload of them on this board.

and come on bro, U know theres a diff between being a douche & a bully.

There is a difference between being a bully and bullying. You're right, everyone is not only capable, but has engaged in bullying without necessarily being a bully, at one time or another.

The verb form of bully literally means to "treat abusive" (Merriams), which is the way that it was used in the article, as a verb.

Someone might just be a douche, but that doesn't make their comments any less abusive, and thus they are engaging in bullying. Ignorance of what the word bullying means doesn't excuse a person from the reality of their behavior.

Yo.

yea, but the context in which *that form* of the word is used implies continued/on-going behavior...........which is not the same as a 1-off comment.

so again, Im not of the opinion that THAT would make ya a bully or even "engaged in bullying" as the case may be. not in this instance.

Apparently this is ongoing behavior, if it was just something that happened once or twice, then it probably wouldn't be an issue.

Yo.

but this wasnt an attitude directed AT HER, merely ABOUT her.

if the comments had found there way to her directly, then ya might have had a point, however somebody clued her toward *them* and as such its not the same thing.

sure, there may still be comments made about her visage when some person or other come across the YT-link (or watever else uncomplimentary stuff is out there), but an honest comment thats NOT shoved in her face is still exempt from wat we would typically call bullying.

No, it's not. Abusive behavior is abusive behavior. There is no socially justifiable reason to call someone "ugly", even if you are being honest, it's hurtful and you'd have to be a total dumb fuck not to think it would hurt someone.

As for directing comments about her and not to her, that's a fucking cop-out. Bullies at the school I went to said shit about people to their friends, real close to where the person was sitting and was highly likely to hear...that didn't make their behavior "exempt" from being abusive and socially unacceptable behavior. They knew it was likely to be heard.

Yo.

I cannot agree with the notion that a negative comment made about a subject in a discussion that theyre largely unaware of = abusive behavior. thats too narrow-minded a descriptor lacking any context, and works under the assumption that unfavorable opions about somebody SHOULDNT be said in order to not offend somebody, regardless of the likelihood of them ever finding out about it.

also, is 1 thing to have a conversation about somebody WITHIN EARSHOT and not directly at them, its entirely another story to leave a comment about another person on a wall miles away from them.

they are NOT the same.

You can have this one Tazer, I'm not gonna dance around semantics with you. The definition of bullying is pretty clear. Personally, I view it as bullying for the simple fact that such comments have no value except as an act of destruction or a desperate attempt at trying to build self confidence. It's pathetic, it's weak, and it's predatory behavior, but if you want to pretend it's something else, then god bless you. Have a nice night.

Anyone play games on their cell phone? I usually play Word Mole and Brickbreaker. On my BB Torch, I had a Brickbreaker high score of 850,000+ with 302 lives when I accidentally hit the "new game" button and erased the score. While I was playing, I got the Laser and my finger apparently slipped so when I tried to fire the laser, I ended up quitting the game. Man, I was pissed.

I was planning to get to 1,000,000, take a pic with my cell phone and then quit. It took me nearly 2 months to get that far.
