Bullying On Ep

I have a friend on EP who is being bullied by a few other EP members. There is one member in particular that  has gone way to far. This one  member in particular has publicly smeared my EP friend and now my friend is choosing to leave EP, probably for good. 

I wrote to the admins and told them what was going on, but I have yet to hear anything from them. My question is this, should I, even though I'm not the one being bullied, intervene on her behalf and say something to this one particular person?

I asked my friend if it was OK, but I have yet to hear from my friend.  I seriously want to say something to this member, but I don't want to go behind my friends back and cause an embarrassing situation. Despite this, I still really want to say something. 

Overall, the reason why I'm so passionate about his because I made a promise to myself a long time ago that I'd stand up for a friend if he or she were being bullied by another. Seeing what this person did to my friend on here brought back really bad memories and I guess it just hit a sore spot for me. Anyways, any input would be great, so please don't hesitate to leave a comment,

The sad thing about this now that I read it again, the same friend that I was sticking up for used me like everyone else. * Sighs* I guess you never know a person, right?

I know what u mean. There's someone rly nasty on here that's mean 2 everyone and makes racist comments >:(

I know, people like that don't deserve to have an EP account, let alone any social media sites.

Love it :)

I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.

Ditto :)

All I know is bullies prefer the silence and they cannot stand the light. I would talk to my friend into standing up against the bully because they will surely bully others. The more they "get away with it", the worse they become....I say nip it in the bud.

God bless. <3

I tried to talk my friend into confronting the bully, but my friend declined and told me not to say anything. I had to respect my friend's wishes.

I could tell and think that takes a lot of integrity.

I would pray I would have a run in with the moron, so I wouldn't have to worry about my friend's feelings. I wouldn't be so discreet about the bully, for everyone's sake.

Yeah, well, if I were to run into the bully then I think I would say something. This bully however is on EP, so there is zero chance that I will run into that person. I know I did the right thing by respecting my friends wishes.

I believe you did too. :)

Thanks :)

You're very welcome. (:

which friend and which bully?

Out of respect for my friend, I'd rather not say.

ahh I understand.

Thank you :)

I would stand up for them... Not everybody can help but if you can then I would but just be careful how you do it. First though, wait to see what your friend/ the admins think...
