    Good point. It was probably talking about production incessantly and not stopping when told to shut it down.

    Actually that's exactly why I was questioning it in the first place. I said in my post you referenced that "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." That's why I brought it up at all, because I couldn't tell from the other posters the context in which the comment was made. My point was if they had been saying the term bullying was overused, and felt Amanda's behavior was not bullying, I would have been very disappointed (and more disgusted by them than I already am ). But that doesn't appear to be the case. I'm not sure I personally agree the term is "overused," but I was looking for clarification as to how it came up in the first place

    Have you been on the receiving end of any bullying? I see it way too often at school. It's not used enough, it is used correctly, and I don't think when it's happening to someone you care about that it's been reduced to a verbal tick. But that's just my 2 cents. I think people get away with it too much, which is why it's so prevalent in our society.

    You said what I was trying to say so eloquently. As a principal I see this every other day almost. I hate it when the elementary kids are crying because of the terrible things being said or done to them for something they can't control. Amanda is bullying by almost every definition of the word.

I am a teacher and I hate when the Kids get bullied and then their parent say that their kid is not a bully.

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't William Collins (Mega Will) banished from Big Brother 1 for fussing Brittany out and accusing her of being racist? I can't remember all the details, so I may be totally wrong. I am certainly open to correction. The rules have changed since AG took over. Amanda would be out now if it was an earlier season I think.

    I'm pretty sure he was just "evicted" first. The other HG's nominated him & the stripper girl. Then they made a big deal about his behavior & the viewers voted him out.
    Back then the HG's just nominated by popular vote. The top 2 were put on the block. There was no HOH, nor were there any Vetos nor any way off the block. Then the viewers voted on who to evict.
    The viewers had much more say back then. The people who caused any drama were immediately put on the block by the other HG's. Then people who irritated the viewers (like Amanda does now) were gone quickly.

    Ultimately, this left the house with little to no drama & a bunch of "nice" people. A lot of people complained that it left the house boring. The show didn't get the conflict they were hoping for. This is why they changed it on Season 2.

    Gotta say I am totally with you on this one bear! People do get away with it way too much - just look at Amanda for goodness sake. From what I've been reading lately she is the definition of BULLY.
