Disappointment - November 23rd 2012, 03:33 AM

Okay so lately I have noticed something about TH. I have seen some users being directly rude to others, it doesn't seem fair. This is basically cyber bullying. I have talked to some of the user who were bullied and they have said that they now feel unsafe of this site and want to die. I'm just saying if you have a problem with a user on this site please keep it to yourself unless you feel the need to report him/her. I understand not everyone is going to like each other, but the least we can do is respect each other and not bully each other. This is a site to help each other.

I totally agree with you. It makes me feel really sad for the users who are being "bullied" when I see a post that puts someone else down or makes them feel bad, or is just plain mean. People are here to get help and help other people, not make them feel worse!

I am sorry that you feel this way. Nobody likes to be bullied.

Please keep in mind that sometimes constructive advice may seem like unwarranted rudeness.

For the most part, things are pretty calm here and I rarely see bullying.

But I'm not saying that it doesn't happen. If you see a post or you see a member who is behaving innapropriately, feel free to report it and we will rectify everything.

Hey Bri,

I'm sorry to hear that you've witnessed Bullying here on TeenHelp. It's not nice to be bullied or see bullying around the site and I'd highly suggest Reporting those Users who are seen bullying others here and it will be dealt with appropriately. When our Members sign up to the site they agree to abide by our Code of Conduct and one section states that
All users should be treated with respect at all times, regardless of any negative feelings you hold towards them or whether or not provocation occurred. Hateful descriptions or images will not be tolerated anywhere on TeenHelp, and neither will insulting or aggressive behaviour towards anyone. All users should help to maintain the positive environment of TeenHelp.

I very rarely see bullying around the site but please do Report it if you are being bullied or witness any bullying by anybody on the site.

Hey there,

I am sorry to hear that you have witnessed bullying here. I know that bullying of any kind is not tolerated here and as stated previously users agree to abide by Teenhelps code of conduct when they make an account. If you are noticing other users bullying someone I would like to encourage you to report it; Here is the link to report a user. It is important for things like this to be reported so that it can be looked into properly and taken care of.

If you ever want to chat please feel free to pm/vm me.

Unfortunately like any large online community disagreements are going to happen and TH does it to best keep an eye on these sort of situations, it might be an idea for you report these users to the correct people such as disputes committee or a moderator if there is a moderator online.

Hi there

Bullying isn't something that should be going on any where, especially on sites like Teenhelp and i am sorry that some people go through this on the site. However it is going to happen. Bullying is always going to be seen on here but we as a site do not tolerate this behaviour. Staff will either see it going on and take action or it will be reported and then dealt with. We do everything we can to prevent and stop this behaviour. If you see bullying going on around the site then please report it so the staff members can deal with it.

I'm really sorry to hear that you have seen this bullying going on. Bullying isn't always fully preventable, but like what was said, we aren't going to tolerate that behavior, so if you see it going on, be sure to report it so we can deal with what is going on. We will take care of the people on the site who are bullying other users and try to make the site as safe as possible. But, we also really appreciate it when users report any bullying going on. While we love to help out, we can't be everywhere at once, and sometimes we need reports so we can take action. You all deserve to feel safe here.
