Social exclusion has been demonstrated to be the worst form of bullying [92]. In extreme forms it has been linked to suicide [206].

“Like it or not, most of us play by the rules and have a “trusting bias.” That is, we expect others to play by the rules and to deal with us honestly (research on deception shows that even when subjects are told that they will hear 50% truths and 50% lies, they tend to believe that the majority of what they hear is truthful). 


Psychology Today Nov 20th 2015 • Make it clear to your friends that you won’t be involved in bullying behaviour • Never stand by and watch or encourage bullying behaviour • Do not harass, tease or spread gossip about others, this includes on social networking sites like Facebook • Never forward on or respond to messages or photos that may be offensive or upsetting • Support the person who is being bullied to ask for help e.g. go with them to a place they can get help or provide them with information about where to go for help • Report it to someone in authority or someone you trust e.g. at school to a teacher, or a school counsellor; at work to a manager; if the bullying is serious, report it to the police; if the bullying occurs on Facebook, report it to Facebook.

Cyberbullying Law 
"Under Commonwealth law it is an offence to “use a carriage service to menace, harass or cause offence, or for the purposes of a threat”. 13 It is also an offence to “knowingly or recklessly use a telecommunications service in such a way as would be regarded by reasonable persons being, in all the circumstances, offensive”


Penalty Max. 3 years Imprisonment

Ok after today's experience (Tuesday November 17th 2015) at #theglenshoppingcentre I have finally decided to talk about the ‪#‎femaleaggression I have experienced over the past three years in relation to rumour spread or ‪#‎covertbullying #cyberbullying and as a ‪#‎malevictim the assumption that I deserve it and "musta done somethin" 

The rumour I overhear no matter where I am in Melbourne is alternatively that I "walk around Brunswick" or that I "walk around"  

To those who don't get the innuendo it sounds harmless. "What's wrong with that?" 


To those who get the innuendo it is code for "social undesirable" 



Samuel Lapp: I would only kill the bad man.

Eli Lapp: Only the bad man. I see. And you know these bad men by sight? You are able to look into their hearts and see this badness?

The Confirmation Bias 

“When other people look at you, they see what they expect to see. If they have reason to believe that you are smart, they will see evidence of intelligence in your behavior—whether or not there actually is any. If they have reason to believe you are dishonest, they will interpret a lack of eye contact or awkward body language as evidence that you have something to hide, as opposed to evidence that you are shy, distracted, or in gastric distress.




Female Aggression as defined by Psychology Today is:

"Until fairly recently, there were no sounds associated with female aggression -- as if it didn't exist.
It's only in the last decade or so that aggression by the female -- in the form of social or relational aggression -- has been recognized.
 The words now associated with female aggressive behavior include: 
excluding, ignoring, teasing, gossiping, secrets, backstabbing, rumor spreading and hostile body language (i.e., eye-rolling and smirking).  
Most damaging is turning the victim into a social "undesirable". 
The behavior and associated anger is hidden, often wrapped in a package seen as somewhat harmless or just a "girl thing".  
The covert nature of the aggression leaves the victim with no forum to refute the accusations 
and, in fact, attempts to defend oneself leads to an escalation of the aggression."

#cyberbullying is a serious crime with a maximum penalty of three years imprisonment.

How about stopping #cyberbullying? Dob in a #cyberbully


"Victims of cyberbullying are treated worse than criminals 
but then cyberbully - vigilantes are the criminals."

"VicPol deals in facts and evidence not rumours and when they do speak to someone they are interested in ascertaining the truth using proper and lawful procedures and ask an individual for their side of the story."
"Victoria Police also take photos offline of people they allege have committed an offence once they have apprehended and charged the individual."
Victims of cyberbullying have no opportunity/ forum to put their side of the story
BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING WRONG!

"I'm tired of being defined by ‪#‎misandry and ‪#‎misandrist ‪#‎fearofcrime hysteria." 

"Sneaky, underhanded, deceptive, cruel: the worst traits of femininity." 

"Dr Anne Summers spoke of "ducks on the pond" and women being pushed into a "god's police" role. I don't buy that. On what I've seen and heard female bullies take to being self-appointed police like ducks to water."

It is women saying it recruiting other women to participate in their "chinese whispers" and also recruiting males, fooling them into a false protector role.

Rumour spread is classic covert bullying and/or female aggression designed to hurt someone's reputation that the bully doesn't like or like the look of.

According to Edith Cowan University covert bullying is the cruelest form of bullying and an increasing social phenomenon as bullies are getting sneakier and covert bullying has the least risk of the perpetrators being held to account.


"With the growing data indicating that, for both boys and girls,

covert forms of bullying are likely to ‘cause the greatest amount of suffering,

while they have a greater chance of going unnoticed by teachers’ [122],

it is clear that the old saying

‘sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never harm me’

is not only inaccurate, but is also dangerous

in that it has marginalised the importance of covert bullying

in the context of school bullying policy and teacher awareness.”

Edith Cowan University 2009



"...may have had an isogenic effect, forcing students to find more covert forms of bullying [108].
Borkqvist [109] used the term the ‘effect-to-danger ratio’
to suggest that in inflicting harm on another person or group of people,
individuals look for forms of bullying that will have the greatest effect
while minimising their risk of being caught or placed in danger."

But rumour spread is not recognised as covert bullying and female aggression and I have had enough of being ‪#‎defamed

Tired of being defined by #misandry and #misandrist #fearofcrime hysteria. Given that it is strangers doing it (and that's bizarre) one imagines that they don't like the look of me or have had the rumour passed on to them. 

The Confirmation Bias 

“When other people look at you, they see what they expect to see. If they have reason to believe that you are smart, they will see evidence of intelligence in your behavior—whether or not there actually is any. If they have reason to believe you are dishonest, they will interpret a lack of eye contact or awkward body language as evidence that you have something to hide, as opposed to evidence that you are shy, distracted, or in gastric distress.



From what I hear people absorb rumours unquestioningly " öh really?" And they are spread in the guise of community safety "Just so you know. I thought you should know (that person is a social undesirable)" With ‪#‎socialcontagion others join in the rumour spread without any feeling of individual responsibility. I have heard people pose the question why is this person having rumours spread about them and heard them conclude with the assumption "musta done somethin" It is very disempowering and disconcerting. Rumours colour the perception of people. Respect of one person for another "goes out the window." Victoria Police has no interest in me and there is no evidence I have done anything wrong. Only covert bullies are interested. 

I am also shy and anxious. A traditional target for bullies. Luck of the draw I guess.

Covert bullying is insidious. The rumour doesn't say I've done anything wrong but does it ever recruit participants in the bullying! Especially when the word "Brunswick" is mentioned. The only truth to the rumours is that I lived in ‪#‎brunswick for 4 and 1/2 months in 2013 moving out in September 2013. I used to walk for exercise and walked in the inner city like I was still in Kingston, Mentone Beach etc. I was from outta town? Well South Eastern suburbs to be precise. I guess I literally walked into a shit-storm of fear. It's easier to see in hindsight. And I can't afford a car so I have to walk. I wish I could afford a car to block minimise avoid unreasoning high-fear hyper-vigilance. I have not walked for exercise since Sept 2013 and bought an exercise bike to avoid the stress of hyper-vigilance. The rumour I overhear that I walk around Brunswick continues to this day but is also amended to "walks around" and predominantly middle-aged female strangers can get hysterical at my presence when in a group such as the contemptuous chorus of "ohhh he walks around!" at the entrance to ‪#‎theglenshoppingcentre food court today when I looked at store information sign. Immediately after a ‪#‎femalesecurityguard asked me if I needed any assistance. Seemed a bit gratuitous. So I smiled and said no thanks I'm right and intimated that she go away which she did. You go Boy! I am improving at not showing annoyance/ exasperation at female intimidation! So #theglenshoppingcentre It didn't take me long to get targeted and empirically I wasn't surprised. On what I've observed ‪#‎femalebullies tirelessly recruit participants in their bullying. If you're the victim, how do you stop the rot? Dunno? It's all covert and ostensibly it's not going on right. Sneaky, underhanded, deceptive, cruel: the worst traits of femininity. ‪#‎rumour spread is directly related to #fearofcrime and ‪#‎hypervigilance One of the things about covert bullying which is so frustrating is never having a forum to refute the rumours. This is where the explanation of covert bullying modus operandi gets all "twilight zone" You only have a forum if you have been formally accused, charged. If you haven't done anything wrong you don't get a forum. covert bullies don't want you to have a forum and you won't. Why because you haven't done anything wrong. This is probably why my fantasies of having a forum always involve me defending myself. Also no forum because female aggression and covert bullying goes on openly but is not seen as such and the victim of rumours is assumed to have "done somethin" Rumour spread is covert bullying the cruelest form of bullying and that's like wrong! It is ‪#‎bullying by women and they are unaccountable ‪#‎femaleperpetrators deciding their negative impact on others. "I don't like the look of him he deserves to be defamed as a community service." Or "It's all part of my day? A woman's day?" Dr Anne Summers spoke of "ducks on the pond" and women being pushed into a "god's police" role. I don't buy that. On what I've seen and heard female bullies take to being self-appointed police like ducks to water. Gleefully setting themselves up in a watchdog role often because of nothing better to do. So who watches the watchers? You would only see me at the mall if you were there all day every day. PS I wonder if it has occurred to Dr Summers that maybe the shearing shed was a "safe space" for men and "secret men's business" and that's why the shearers alerted a woman's presence with the expression "ducks on the pond" And as far as men not talking to one another. They used to. But women didn't like it! "He's down the pub with his mates" Spare me your feminine "crocodile tears" about ‪#‎menssheds and ‪#‎malesuicide

Comment by Pete Dowe


Citizens must be made aware that photos NOT put online by #victoriapolice  but by members of the public implying that someone is a "social undesirable" are put online by criminal #cyberbullies.

VicPol deals In facts and evidence not rumours and when they do speak to someone they are interested in ascertaining the truth using proper and lawful processes and ask an individual for their side of the story.

Criminal cyberbullies and #covertbullies simply denounce people not caring whether they have wrongfully accused someone.

"Just the facts ma'am just the facts"

#vigilantism may be an entry-level contribution but it is not a contribution to #communitysafety.

In fact it is just the opposite making the community less safe.



Victims of cyberbullying are treated worse than criminals 
but then cyberbully - vigilantes are the criminals. 
Victoria Police take photos offline of people they allege have committed an offence once they have apprehended and charged the individual. 

Cyberbullying-vigilantes endlessly take and distribute photos of innocent people on social media under the guise of community safety 

but with the sole intent of damaging a person's reputation based on rumours 

because they personally don't like them or don't like the look of them or have joined in the rumour-mongering without feeling any responsibility for the consequences of their actions. 

A phenomenon known as social contagion. "Just so you know. I thought you should know"

Cyber-bullying is enabled by the assumption that cyber-bullies would not spread rumours unless the victim “musta done somethin” Where the perpetrators of cyberbullying are female the assumption is stronger that the victim deserves it. That the victim poses a threat to the community. That “A woman wouldn’t say it unless it was true.” 

When held to account, cyberbullies then deceptively and self - deceptively claim "they didn't mean any harm" and "they didn't realise it was wrong" 
to recklessly target innocent people without evidence nor authority without caring whether they falsely accused someone nor the consequences for the victim which is to be defamed as a social undesirable without any forum to face their accusers nor refute the rumours: Ignominy by covert/ cyber-bullying. 

All done under the guise of community safety "Just so you know. I thought you should know". 

CyberbullieSS also do it because they can. They have a mobile phone with camera and internet technology and access to (anti) social media. 

Often the victim’s only metaphorical crime is to be shy and anxious which actually aren’t crimes but apparently “make perpetrators perpetrate?” 

Do you still wonder why cyberbullying is a serious crime and serious threat to community safety? 

Right now you can only hope not to be shy, anxious or a loner. 

If you are, lotsa luck. You’ll need it!

The self-appointed "good people" are on the march.
