For you lazy Farkers who couldn't find the actual article, as well as Subby and ScienceDaily. This study wasn't designed to test whether or not the anti-bullying program was effective, it was just an examination of determinants of bullying using some shiatty data. Anti-bullying was used as a school-level control variable which happened to be very statistically significant in the direction they weren't expecting, and there are tons of reasons for that possibility.

If they were actually testing effectiveness of bullying, they'd probably use a DID model, not a heiarchical linear model. The ScienceFaily article is just jumping on a tiny part of the report and making it seem like it was the primary finding.

Ah, an article from a journal published by Hindawi. I'm not saying they only publish crap, but their standards are pretty low. Doesn't mean this article is BS, but it's not like it just came out in Science or Nature.

trappedspirit: This kid's mom came to tell the boy scout troop that we shouldn't keep calling him "butterbutt".  Worked like an anti-bullying program.

It didn't help that she said "Stop calling him 'butterbutt', I mean jeeze, look at the haircut I gave him! A bowl cut! You are totally ignoring the fact that his name is Joel and you could call him Joel the Bowl. You guys are the laziest, least imaginative bullies ever."

Enemabag Jones: I say we commit a genocide against jerks.

Careful, that might lead to people calling the Jerk Store and finding there aren't enough jerks.

Mid_mo_mad_man: The best solution to a bully problem is a fist. Whoop a bullies butt and they stop it.

I wouldn't really be into fisting a bully's butt, but thanks for the advice anyway.

dv-ous: Ironic? Apparently the "Obvious" tag was busy getting beaten up in the locker room.

Those anti-bullying campaigns are fairy-dust. They're completely full of shiat, ignore fundamental aspects of human nature, and are halfheartedly spoonfed to kids who know it's complete BS, by teachers who know it's complete BS.

Actually, talking to people fighitng, including bullies, works wonderfully.  The problem is to get most people who are fighting to talk, you need to take them to the ground and keep them there first.  They don't exacty teach that part.

/used to do that to bullies
//they seemed to be a lot of persecution complexes among them
///they eventually got better, and everyone forgave everyone else
