    Why Do People Poke Fun At Others / Is It Good To Poke Fun

    Hello people

    Just wondering if anybody thinks poking fun at others is a good thing or a bad thing.
    ( when I say poke fun, I mean personel attacks )

    Have any of you been poked fun at on here ?

    Are there any culprits that do poke fun at others on here ?

    Would it be right to name and shame the culprits ?

    Just hoping I have spelt everything ok or I will
    be getting poked fun at again.

    Thanks

    lol!
    I get it about my spelling all the time!

    Poking fun is basically bullying - so if you asking if bullying is ok then no

    I really would ot worry about it,they got nothing better to do.The thing is if you let them know that they are winding you up they will do it more.

    I'm the sort to poke fun for humour, but this is generally directed at myself, if you cant take it then dont give it. I'm confident enough in myself to be able to make fun of any shortcomings I may have.

    There's one poster in particular who thinks it is his mission in life to correct everyone's spelling, i'm pretty sure everyone already knows who it is

    I've told a few other people on here that have done it too that it is a bit out of order as the next person they do it to could be dyslexic etc and get really offended from it, they don't stop though

    I think when posters are doing it to be pedantic rather than helpful it should be a suspension

    depends whether the other person is laughin too, i suppose.
    I usually poke fun at myself anyway - so dont mind if others do (as long as they can take it as well)

    I'm not going to name names, i've told them not to bother correcting my spelling again they haven't since so that will do me

    Practising hard? sounds errm ooeerr missus

    Some people bully others on an internet forum because they're cowards who can hide behind their computer screen. Instead of rising to the bait you should pity them - sad strange little people.

    Harlzter has a fantastic way of being blunt to the point in an inoffensive manner.
    He says what i would love to say to ppl. But that dont seem offended by the way he phrases it.
    I have a knack of peeing ppl of lmao

    How's the bites sassie? All healed up I hope.

    Spelling - errors can't be helped but you know it's just possible that someone may be trying to be helpful or having a giggle- like FH and harlzter ^^^^^. Don't let it stop you enjoying a bit of a banter. I can spell, iijust can't type.;-)
