How do you deal with bullies? I wanna hear from VGChartz if you had any bullies you've confronted online?

Edit : I was saying outside of Vgchartz , What's your comeback ? Wanna hear your stories?

A reasonable way to deal with internet bullies is to have sex with their mothers, and then bring it up every time you play multiplayer games.



I tell them their mother is a hamster and their father smells of elderberries. Works every time 60% of the time.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

I ignore them, and sometimes I insult them before blocking them so they can't respond. :)

If they ask if there's someone else up there you can talk to, tell them to go away or they'll be taunted a second time. If they don't leave, throw livestock at them.



I deal with them by either ignoring them or blocking them. That's the good thing about internet bullying verses real-world bullying. You can always choose to click on something else, or just block the person. Failing that, you can always delete your social media account and find something else to do.

I disagree with that last sentence. You shouldn't have to close your social media accounts just because of douchebags.

No, you most certainly shouldn't. But the option is there as a last resort. And knowing that can be a great relief to people who feel trapped in it.



It happened to me on Twitter one time. That social network is a mess, the environment is so toxic that people can try to "cancel" you for clout, twisting whatever you say in the most ridiculous ways. Case in point, I said that I thought that one turist spot in my city was overrated and somehow that turned into me trying to destroy the city's culture, according to some random people. I'm not even kidding. You just need a couple pseudo-influencers to insult you and then you have dozens and dozens of strangers insulting you basically just for fun. Its quite overwhelming.

I think social media has made it clear that human beings aren't designed to socialize virtually. There's something about the anonymity that causes people to become ugly, or to indulge in their worst instincts. It's really obvious, and I'm surprised mental health experts haven't started a campaign to raise awareness.
