A few weeks back I gave Ozy details
Of two poets mocking me

I haven't heard back

Today tyger is leaving because of feeling
bullied

In the name of free speech it seems that
Poets can bully or mock fellow
poets without consequences

It's happening alot

Whenever one makes a complaint it's
the same old explanation that free speech
reigns and the victim is not considered

Two poets openly mocked my work
GP rules seem to mean nothing
My complaint seems unheard

Is GP a safe place to write without
cyber bullies being in charge

I'd like my complaint about the poet Asif
and Kylebank invesrigated

Ozymandias has the details

Tyger is another casualty of not enough
Being done to warn off bully poets
GP loses another poet

Use the Block List. It is there for a reason. If that feature doesn't work for people, then I am sorry but perhaps a site like this isn't the best fit for them.

John, Ilan's complaint is not about a PM or a comment he received on a poem, it's about the fact that another poet wrote something separately mocking a poem he had posted. So that's something that can't be resolved by blocking. I raised it in the Curators Forum recently and there was some discussion there.

I think some people have an overly broad definition of "bullying".

I think the issue is that if we get into
issues about what defines bullying
we will be here forever

The fact is that the poet Asif mocked my
Poem

Luv sux

With a poem he wrote

That poem sux

Which is mockery

I can't see how that is respectful of a
fellow poet

GP needs to be a safe place to write
It's already a great place to write
but amateur poets need to feel safe
that doesn't mean we can't be criticized
but mocking is not on

Really?

I thought the "spirit of GP" was freedom of speech.

As for me not being "a nice fellow"..you may be correct on that count. So?

And since you have an itchy trigger finger, and saw fit to block me..here is my reply to your ridiculous PM (the contents of which I will make public if you send any more such tripe to my inbox)..

So you are going to tell on me? What are you, twelve?

By the way..I did not low rate your poem. Someone else must have thought it was as ridiculous as I did.

Free speech doesn't mean denigrating
a fellow poet on GP

You constantly leave sarcastic remarks
And I think you're just a child Trying to
attract attention, how old are you?

Lolz I'll make my PM to you public for all to see


Here's exactly what I sent to your inbox
Asif

"Your poem is offensive
if you do not remove it immediately
I'll complain about it to the owners of
GP

Ilan"

Read the rules Asif, youre not meant to
mock other poets works - you can
constructively put your point across
but not denigrate

what a wonderful poem, AsIf! It really speaks volumes about the current state of this world - and to think that someone would rate it a one? There are other poems on this site very similar in style, and they all get rated an eight, or a nine, or even a ten... Maybe you should try adding different languages or alphabets, like Cyrillic.

Honest feedback: the final two lines are my favourite.

Ha ha..I am very appreciative of your appreciation, Mr. Kylebank. Perhaps I will run this through Google translate or wikipedia and add it at the bottom.

Cyber bullying is a real form
Of bullying

It's not about broad definitions or being
oversensitive

In fact there are laws pertaining to
cyber bullying

There are cases where victims have
suicided and litigation occurs

The right thing to do is to enforce
GP rules

So far I am seeing that when one
complains, it's not taken seriously
as per some comments above

But worst case scenario
If a poet suicided and GP was found to
Have not acted responsibly to curtail a bully
then litigation could occur

Its merely a matter of taking
complaints seriously and issuing
a warning to a poet who is bullying
Or mocking another

I googled cyber bullying USA and
see there is legislation
en.m.wikipedia.org/wik...r-bullying

It seems reasonable to issue warnings
if a person feels bullied it should not
be dismissed as the person being
Over sensitive

Bullying is a huge issue in workplaces
Schools and now the net

Poets need a safe place to write

Thanks for considering my comments
Which don't only pertain to my
Experience - some poets could be leaving
because they feel bullied

It's not a trivial topic and GP has rules
On enforcing or addressing this

Just some suggestions

I don't think Asif acted reasonably
Because he mocked me
How's this a safe place to write If
Poets mock one another - a free for all
There has to be standards

We are not censoring poems here. Sorry.

All you are doing is giving a small minded person the attention he is craving. Block him and then ignore him.

I did block him
That's why he got angry
And that's why he mocked me

John I respect your position
I just wish you'd challenge some of these
Cyber bullies as they make a mockery
Of the spirit of the site

But that'd make you a policeman
with all the nonsense that goes on
So I can see here u coming from

I appreciate your feedback and time
and thank everyday you created the place
GP!! Thank you

I'm with you on that Ilan. I also recently was a victim of cyber bullying here on GP and it resulted in a couple great poem for me called Shattered and one called Don't Tell Him You Love Him (for another victim of this same persons abuse and bullying). I did block the abuser to stop his hate mail and used his words to create some really good poems. I did not let him defeat me or chase me from the site. The funny part is he wrote a poem about being bullied and in his missives accused me of bullying him. It was a very strange and surreal experience. But as I said I used the experience to make myself stronger - not backing down - and to use it creatively. I know it is not fun! Having been there it can be scary getting these hate missives sent to you. So hang in there! I do enjoy your poetry and think you are among the top poets here on GP. I just hope you can use your experience and turn it around on the abuser as I did. The best revenge is living well. Here on GP the best revenge is using the abusers words to write a great poem Smile. hugs and keep on writing!

Good on you Z! I want to tell you
that the bully isn't a big one
I have met much worse
This is nothing
And my poems are all about bully and victims
And I am healed
I kinda think the website should have
An anti bully code or cyber bully
Policy cause not everyone can defend
themselves
And in fact it is the silent that suffer most
Slipping awAy quietly
I'm noisy as u can see on this thread
Spilling my guts
But what of the very shy and intimidated
Who don't speak up
Thats who needs help

Thank you for lovely comments
Coming from
U major nice feeling Smile
