Shunning
Shunning is the act of deliberately avoiding association with, and habitually keeping away from an individual or group. It is a sanction against association often associated with religious groups and other tightly-knit organizations and communities. Targets of shunning can include, but are not limited to apostates, whistleblowers, dissidents, people classified as "sinners" or "traitors" and other people who defy or who fail to comply with the standards established by the shunning group(s). Shunning has a long history as a means of organizational influence and control. Extreme forms of shunning and related practices have rendered the general practice controversial in some circles.

Re: Shunning
When I was a little kid I had a really close friend who all of a sudden began bullying me around. I took it for a bit and then I told him, "I'm sorry, but I don't think that we can be friends anymore."

Re: Shunning
Purposes

Shunning can be broken down into behaviours and practices that seek to accomplish either or both of two primary goals.

1. To modify the behaviour of a member. This approach seeks to influence, encourage, or coerce normative behaviours from members, and may seek to dissuade, provide disincentives for, or to compel avoidance of certain behaviours. Shunning may include disassociating the member by other members of the community who are in good standing. It may include more antagonistic psychological behaviours (described below). This approach may be seen as either corrective or punitive (or both) by the group membership or leadership, and may also be intended as a deterrent.
2. To remove or limit the influence of a member (or former member) over other members in a community. This approach may seek to isolate, to discredit, or otherwise dis-empower such a member, often in the context of actions or positions advocated by that member. For groups with defined membership criteria, especially based on key behaviours or ideological precepts, this approach may be seen as limiting damage to the community or its leadership. This is often paired with some form of excommunication.

I used to be a bully. Except I was a compassionate one. I guess you could call it a selective bullying. I bullied the other bullies.
They have the power to create reality

I could explain it better but I would need charts, graphs and an easel.

By the way....which ones pink?

... I hear ya... and part of my 'taking it' for a bit was that I also tried giving him a taste of his own medicine, and so to speak. It didn't work though, and for one... lol, cuz he was a bit bigger than I was. And two, he just wasn't a nice kinda bully either.... and ouch!
