Define "siple" first. :P

The majority of the human population is getting less and less intelligent with each generation. We hit our peak as a species right before the internet was born. Now all the idiots of the world have the power to spread their ignorance.

Wikipedia says:

Bullying may be defined as the activity of repeated, aggressive behavior intended to hurt another person, physically or mentally. Bullying is characterized by an individual behaving in a certain way to gain power over another person.[10]

Norwegian researcher Dan Olweus[11] says bullying occurs when a person is:

'exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other persons'. He says negative actions occur 'when a person intentionally inflicts injury or discomfort upon another person, through physical contact, through words or in other ways.'[citation needed]


The word "bully" was first used in the 1530s meaning "sweetheart", applied to either sex, from the Dutch boel "lover, brother", probably diminutive of Middle High German buole "brother", of uncertain origin (compare with the German buhle "lover"). The meaning deteriorated through the 17th century through "fine fellow", "blusterer", to "harasser of the weak". This may have been as a connecting sense between "lover" and "ruffian" as in "protector of a prostitute", which was one sense of "bully" (though not specifically attested until 1706). The verb "to bully" is first attested in 1710.[12
So there you go, definition solved.
2) Does any one like Bullies?
Usually you get people who are hangers on, and have no cajones on their own away from the bully. They work with the bully rather than stand apart, or they will be picked on. Then if a powerful opponent has been overwhelmed by the bully, then the scavengar's (bully sidekicks) have an even greater chance of keeping these individuals subdued. A classic example is ASG vs BSMF. It took the martialling power of HOHo to invade the area and crush the militaristic forces of BSMF, so that ASG could sit in the C40's; otherwise, they could not do it on their own.

I think he means simple. Even a HoHo VGM couldn't figure this out? How about a VGM of A51 or TNP? They might have better luck..
