@bradt93 I am sorry, truly and utterly from the bottom of my heart for what you have went through. No one deserves that. Perhaps it's a generalization, but all the bullies I know growing up have had really bad, unsuccessful lives. Some are dead. Some are addicted. Some are chronically imprisoned. That is the reality in my life. I couldn't name one bully who is successful, doing well or even has a decent life.

Do the bullies sometimes suffer from bad home lives too?

Personally I think so. I think the people that bully are bullying because they feel low themselves. They have things they feel ashamed about or inadequate so they pick on others to try to make those people feel lower than them. Or to try to feel better than them. It is the wrong way to go about getting self esteem for sure, but not everyone has the tools needed to get thru hard times.

Hehe I can buy but you all have to journey to the uk Smile
I get where your coming from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , facts and structured debate are why I am here also I must admit there are a few things I disagree with a number of people over on this board
Sometimes topics can get a tad heated when certain topics are perhaps close to the bone [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ( I went through a few things too) and I agree with you on a certain topic Smile
Its just how we discuss things including substantiating claims with evidence and logical thought and discussion.

Would be a sad world if we all agreed on things

@bradt93 that is often the case. Overbearing, strict, negligent, adusive, etc. parents seem to be a common thread. I'm not making excuses but just saying what I've observed. They rise to the upper echelon in school (where they most often pique, I might add), not through people liking them or respecting them, but from fearing them.

I ran into a grade school bully a few years back. He was a drug addict and was in and out of prison. He's back in, now. Oh, he tried to be nice, but I remained aloof. What would I possibly say? "Sorry I took up for myself when you thought you were a tyrant and would pick on little girls?" Uh, no.

@Acid84 I get what you're saying. Make no mistake (not you, personally), I abbhor bullies. Always have, always will. I like a lively debate, but not insipid baiting. I told a dear friend today that when you start researching anything, you go in with your preconceived notions, but you must be willing to have those notions shattered by the reality of what you find. I don't speak on any topic lightly. If I don't know, then I qualify that. My life has been research, research and more research. Even now, on my deathbed (although, I'm determined to beat this), I continue to research. Knowledge is more powerful than anything.

Completely agree [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] the knowledge of potentially learning new things or considering other opinions regarding columbine bring me back time and time again.

@Acid84 So....you know what I want to know? What you agree with me about. PM me if you prefer or maybe you don't want to share, but I'd sure like to know. Dang it! I said I was leaving these posts!

1. For now, this thread is locked. I will open it back up later but if it goes right back to arguing and insults, I will permanently lock it.
2. The staff here is quite capable of deciding where things should or shouldn't be posted. If you are not a member of the staff, please do not leave comments on the board telling people where they should or shouldn't leave comments.
3. Again, if you are not a member of the staff, do not tell others what they "need" or "don't need" to do on the board. If you have a problem with someone or someone is breaking the rules, please contact a staff member and they will take care of it from there.
4. Verbally attacking well respected members of the forum by calling them names and accusing them of being bullies and then telling the forum owner that you "don't give a shit what some woman has to say" is going to get you permanently thrown off of this forum.
5. Threats don't work on me.
6. Evan Todd was the victim on April 20, 1999 not Dylan and Eric.
7. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has been permanently banned.

Thank you.

After thoroughly reading this entire thread, I have decided to unlock it since the only person who was actually insulting others and making personal attacks has already been banned. Thank you to everyone else who participated in this thread without giving into him (who I believe was either just being a troll or intentionally trying to get people to argue with him). To [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], I saw how he tried to call you out for being a bully. Everyone here knows that isn't true and I'm sorry he said that about you.

Every single post he made (over 100 posts) stems from him being bullied 25 years ago? That just seems a bit ridiculous. And Sue Klebold walking up to Evan Todd and asking him why he "bullied" Dylan? I honestly cannot take that seriously. I recall Evan hiding under a desk in the Library, already wounded from being shot at earlier and Dylan being the one standing over him, "bullying" him and threatening to kill him. How anyone can ignore that and paint Dylan as the victim, I'll never know.
