A Note on Harassment and Bullying

Earlier today, a situation developed where several established members were ganging up on and bullying a newer member in status updates. Some were suspended for this, and for those of you involved who weren't (you know who you are), consider this your one verbal warning.

Cyber-bullying, including ganging up to attack others, and harassment are not tolerated on GDC in any form. In short, if you bully someone on this site, you will receive a warning and suspension. A verbal warning will not necessarily be given first for this type of situation. Additionally, in extreme cases, a permanent ban may be handed down to the aggressor(s) without going through the usual five-strike process.

We want GDC to be a fun place for everyone to chill out, hang with friends and enjoy themselves. The very first rule of GDC is to respect other members. If that's a request you don't think you can handle, you're on the wrong website.

I know I was involved in this but can I just ask why some were suspended when the rest of us got warnings? We all did the exact same thing.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's because some users had less rope to hang themselves with.
I'm not sure who got banned, I can guess though :P

I am so sorry that things have been so bad that you had to post something like this!:( My sympathies and regards to whoever it was who got bullied.

That's sad... People sure are tough when they're hiding behind a computer. I hope whoever was their target is ok and doesn't think we are all like that! I'm glad nothing like that happens in my threads of choice. Nothing but love amongst the Fangirls, pet lovers, and theater nerds :-)

Maybe you people slinging shit here could take your big talk to the inboxes of the people who you have an issue with? :)

honestly that wouldn't do shit cause they aren't reasonable its obvious they dont care.. im certain if someone were to do that theyd be laughed at..

It's kind of sad I still believe all people are nice on GDC. :(

How can they enjoy bullying a newer member? Are they so insecure and weak they need to gang up someone who probably doesn't really feel like part of community yet and doesn't have many friends who could stand up for them? Bullying someone doesn't make anyone powerful, it makes them disgusting (especially in my eyes). They're clearly having fun in their group and this is no big deal for them, I believe, but I really hope they'll stop being so arrogant and open their eyes to see they don't rule this place and most of us don't want to deal with their shit.

I feel sorry for the member who was being bullied. :(

I just woke up to this, it makes me sad.

Looks like I'm going to have to go fetch my carpet bag and give you all a spoonful of sugar.

I love the irony of there being an advert for Unfair Dismissal Direct at the top of the page.

I mean i'm trying my best to stick up for the members here, i really don't like them (especially the newer members) getting bullied, The one who was being bullied, is my friend, on FB. And it is pretty pathetic that some members that have to pick on others.

It's always the same... and the same group of people. It has happened before and it will happen again. :pinch: lol one of the main persons involved laughs about us right now on some other website *cough* like wtf. :thumbsdown:

I'm glad the situation was brought to attention with this blog entry. Bullying and ganging up on other members is disgusting & pathetic.
