"the other children used to bully him"
There's a lot of talk of bullying on this site.
When I was growing up, I hated bullies (real bullies) & got into trouble quite a few times for giving them a good slap on behalf of someone who couldn't stand up for themselves.
As the definition says it is someone using superior strength or influence to intimidate. I don't feel anyone on this site is superior to anyone else (some individuals may think they are but they aren't).
I also see those who use the term bully/bullying so loosely, are quick enough to put other people down themselves.
This is an adult internet forum, if you cant take the heat or understand the fact some people just wont get on then perhaps this isn't the place for you.
There is also other options ... put people you don't like on block. Report posts that offend.
You cant call someone a bully then name call & make personal attacks back, really your just as bad as each other.
Its obvious that some people don't like each other so debate, argue or whatever but stop trying to play the victim when you's are all perfectly capable of standing up for yourselves.
Its tit for tat bollox at best!
Grow up the lot ye, you's are giving this aul bird a feckin headache
If it carries on I shall be forced to deal out punishment & treat you's like children
