    While everyone thought she was just too dense to see anything, in reality she was taking it all in & seeing what's up.
    A thousand times yeah!!!

    If those guys were trying to say that what Amanda has been doing is not bullying, I just lost a lot of respect for Judd I didn't have much to begin with for the others, so... I didn't see the context in which they said it, so I don't know if that's what they meant, or if they were just talking in general. But if they can watch Amanda's behavior and feel like it isn't really bullying...well then that's exactly why bullying these days is such a real problem and kids commit suicide every day. Bullying does not have to be physical. More often the wounds from the constant verbal abuse and feelings of isolation cut the deepest.
    They didn't say Amanda wasn't a bully. They just talked about the word in general. I assumed that they saw Amanda as a bully but so many are called bullies when they really aren't. I don't know where you got the idea they said Amanda wasn't a bully. They said no such thing.

    note: Amanda agreed that she was indeed bullying Amanda, "but she deserves it."
    What qualifies as being a p****? I take it that Judd and company do not work in the school system. If they did, they'd have a totally different viewpoint. When kids take up for themselves, they're the ones that get in trouble. When a bullied kid shoots up a school maybe some will have a differing opinion.

    Where is the line? I sure know where the line is.

    Besides the extensive (previous) slurs .... now she is talking about Elissa's Husband, and son, yesterday she old America to F themselves ... and it sounds as if she is up in Elissa's face and invading her space. It sounds like that is more than 3 strikes! Jen got a nom just for eating.

    The conversation was very brief; they didn't get into it in depth. It has taken a life of its own in this thread.

    I think of bullying as when the one being bullied was "lesser" in some way. Elissa is not "less" than Amanda in any way.

    Elissa is far superior than Amanda in just about any way I can think of.

    Jen got a penalty vote. She was already on the block and she was blatantly disregarding the rules. Believe me I would love Amanda to get a penalty nom just as much as you. I'm just saying....it isn't going to happen unless she breaks the rules. You can't physically harm someone but you can get in their face and talk about their family as much as you want. Unfortunate.... sure, but the rules none the less.

    Jen's penalty was because she intentionally was inhaling turkey burgers when she was on slop, which was breaking a BB rule. Other HG's have had to be a have not for an extra day after accidentally eating a grape (Kevin) and drinking Gatorade (Jeff).

    There are no rules in BB about taunting, Amanda can follow Elissa around and say whatever she wants. If she punched Elissa, that would be breaking a rule and she would be penalized for it.

    What Amanda is doing is no different than what Dick did to everybody, what Russell did to Ronnie, what Howie did to April, and I'm sure I'm forgetting more. Even bringing family members into it - Howie also talked trash about April's family, and even her dog (didn't he say something about going to kill her dog or something like that?). Pretty sure in season 10 the catty girls talked about Libra's husband and her twin babies. Families frequently get dragged into it, even though we know it's wrong and we don't like it, we have to face that it happens. That's Big Brother. We either deal with it or choose not to watch.
