Here you can read the community guidelines: https://scratch.mit.edu/community_guidelines
Now this is not one of those studios that are like, "Ooh, lets make a big deal about bullying on scratch but then just drop the idea and pretend we care". This time we are ACTUALLY doing something about it! Bullying and being rude have become HUGE problems on the scratch site, when it is supposed to be a free programming language and friendly online community,
so please, if you agree that bullying needs to stop, join us here and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
~~~Examples of Bullying:~~~
1. Harassing Repeatedly
3. Lying and Spreading Rumors
5. Rude gestures
6. Playing nasty jokes that embarrass or humiliate
7. Encourage social exclusion
8. Hacking someone's account
9. Abusive or hurtful emails, texts, or posts
10. Damaging property
11. Name calling.
12. Even getting back for someone else being disrespectful.
All of these are hurting the scratch site, and are against the community guidelines! If you see anything on scratch that is against the community guidelines, please report it! We don't need more people being rude back because someone was to them first!
THINK OF THE MANY SCRATCHERS THAT LEFT BECAUSE OF BULLYING OR ALMOST LEFT.......JUST LET THAT SINK IN
It's an awful thing, terrible, life-threatening at times.
Victims are left wondering "What happened? What did I do to deserve this?"
Bullies mostly don't even realize they're doing it until something happens that serves (or should serve) as a wake up call.
It leaves people physically and emotionally weak, but when bystanders take action, the weak victim can become strong. To sum it up, It's NOT COOL to be CRUEL!!
The girl you just called fat? -She is over dosing on diet pills. The girl you just called ugly? -She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her. That kid you labeled a loner? -no one likes them for who they are The boy you just tripped? -He is abused enough at home. See that man with the ugly scars? -He fought for his country. That girl you just made fun of for crying? -Her mother is dying. You think you know them. Guess what? You DON'T! Re-post if you are against bullying.
