I have been a member of DS for almost 3 months. I joined shortly after the death of my mother. During this time, I have met some wonderful, caring, supportive people who have helped me tremendously in dealing with my grief. However, I have also come across some very nasty, bossy people who feel that they have the right to bully other members or make their own "rules" about what goes on in a group. I recently left a group that I liked due to nasty negative comments. This all occurred due to a member posting a thread of off-topic messages that had nothing to do with the support group in the first place. I have experienced more than my share of bullying in my life, from childhood into adulthood, and I'm sure I'm not alone in this. So the last thing we need is more of the same here, in a forum where we come for support and friendship. What can be done to help put an end to this type of negative behavior?
