    The internet is great in so many regards, especially how it levels the field for business. It doesn't matter if you're Borders, or just someone selling books out of their house, no one really knows how big, or small, you really are.

    That being said there's one thing that makes me crazy regarding the internet...BULLIES!!!

    There are some people on this board who are rude and nasty, to just about everyone, and not just Noobs either. Sadly, most of these people are seniors on this board and have so much to offer but instead choose to shit on others.

    You see the internet is a world of Halo fantasy, and if you think you're a tough guy, then bang, you're a tough guy. But in the real world this just doesn't fly, because you have to actually back up what you say. This is where the level playing field of the internet sucks. Because you know as well as I, that these pimple-faced nerds (who probably still live in their Mom's basement) wouldn't dare treat people like that out in the street.

    I understand that you guys have suffered countless wet willies, wedgies and flushies in your life, but let it go.

    Grow up! High school is over now.

    On the other hand there are so many great people on this board it's a pleasure just to be a member here, and I thank you for your time, effort and kindness!

    This just needed to be said...;)

    Well, bullies don't just exist on the Internet. The exact same environment applies everywhere, online or offline.

    We just have to ignore what's pulling us back and focus on what will bring us closer to success.

    I hear what you're saying buddy, but I'm saying that where I come from bullies rarely are found. Why? Because when you try to bully someone you best be big and bad enough to back up your mouth. If not, you're going to get your teeth handed to you. On the internet though you can be as big and as bad as you imagine yourself to be.

    You are right. It's a lot easier to be a bully in this virtual world :)

    I take it (the negative crap you refer to) as good practice in remaining solution focused.
    Practicing responding in a calm rational manner as opposed to immediately resorting to
    personal attack is always a good idea.

    The most successful people don't burn bridges even after they are publically humilated.
    Those members who do this stand out in my mind as reputable, their actions speak for
    their character.

    Yeah, just like on the UFC boards.......talk about trash talking idiots. Same thing with the Bullshido forum as well. Type tough, but do they REALLY have what it takes to go toe to toe....nah, I don't think so.

    Reminds of one thread in which someone got really nasty and threatening. I told them, "hey here is the MMA school that I train at (American Top Team), here is my real name, and come on by anytime and we will "talk".......there are even real UFC fighters there on any given night and you "talk" to them as well......."

    Funny thing is that they have not shown up yet! :)

    So, I spend very little time on either board and am very intolerant of the "keyboard bullies".........

    People who bully have psychological/emotional problems. Still doesn't excuse their behavior, in my book.

    I have NO respect for people who bully. It is just plain wrong.

    One quick divergent question......why does the post count not reflect my true post count? It is well over 200, and yet, it continues to hover around 112 or so....

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I totally agree! But you know what eventually happens? These losers become artificially empowered and sooner or later this will spill over into the real world, and then they're screwed....:D

    I have to disagree. Yes there are a handful of rotten apples, but the vast majority are very patient and very helpful. Tons of really retarded questions (that should be answered by google and not on a fucking thread here) get attention from senior members all the time.

    Try going to WickedFire or GFY and then come back and tell me how nasty we all are.. If you don't read the rules or you post something overly stupid, THEN YOU WILL GET FLAMED A LITTLE. Deal with it and don't be a pussy about it. Take your lumps and learn from your mistakes.

    lol comparing bhw to sherdog is a little bit much don't you think. Please point out these supposed keyboard warriors who are threatening people... They would be the first ones to get set straight as I very rarely see that sort of behavior around here.

    Yep, Karma, baby!

    They get to "reap the whirlwind".........

    I love to watch the videos of the "victims" turning the tables on the scumbag bullies......

    Nasty we ALL are? Did you even read my post? I said some, NOT all! Also gave much kudos in my post to the majority of people here.

    As I said I'm not talking about Stoopid Noob type questions here. These are legitimate questions being asked and a couple of assholes shooting them down, constantly. If you haven't noticed then you're NOT paying attention.

    You seem a little touchy-feely...eh? Maybe I struck a nerve?

    What's up with all these threads bitching about being nicer lately? This isn't a croquet match.

    oh and @grizzy:

    yeah big pet peeve of mine about people not researching a bit before posting something that is readily available on the interwebby, though I too have seen several senior members help out in threads like that here on bhw.

    Wow look how confrontational you have become... Look how quickly you turned at even the slightest hint of annoyance from me. Very professional of you Mr. Hypocrite.

    Please point these 'legitimate questions' that are being shot down. I see the exact opposite. The average member's tolerance for bullshit is amazingly high considering what goes on here most of the time. Keep in mind, this is not DP and the expected quality of threads on this forum is much higher then basically every other IM board. If your question can be answered by google, or by using the search button, then DO NOT start a thread!

    I say again. Who are these 'bullies'? Call them out right now and I will be the first one to back you up.
