A Prime Example of Walford Web Bullying

Here's the thread in question.

Mormon Girl is a long-time poster who suffers from autism.

As you can see in this thread,Soetmo and Nevermindme, both of whom have become excessively aggressive with people who harbour differing opinions lately, are actively, openly and aggressively bullying this person. An autistic.

And neither the owner of the site nor the pithy individuals who pride themselves in being passive-aggressive "moderators" do absolutely diddly squat.

No wonder this site is now a non-entity inhabited by the worst sort of misogynistic fanboi bullies.

  1. That thread is painful to read. I sympathise with Mormon Girl.

  2. I left WW last year and it was the right thing to do. The place is over run with bullies who target the females especially. There is a group of young males who bully the female members and now not many women are on there now. Soetmo, Nevermindme, Donald Duck and Shamlessness should all be ashamed of themselves. Between the bullies and Den the pervert who targets younger females sexually it is not a nice place to be if you are female.

    1. Some people are just cowards and bullies. As the above post proves. Psychopaths can call anybody anything online such as 'pervert' and get away with it as mud sticks. then again, they are able to fool everyone into thinking the sun shines out of their arse.

    2. Not wanting to hijack this thread, or bring the problems of WW onto here, but I have first hand knowledge of some of the goings on there. There are some seriously dangerous people there and Den is one of them. For any of the young girls reading this, last I heard, he has had his PM privileges permanently removed. It would be nice to see some of you back. There are some posters there that just enjoy a good chat about our fav programme, or a bit of a laugh.

  3. I haven't been back on WW since that bitch Betty sent me a PM pointing out my views on The Beales were not welcome.


    All because I said Heti was a crap actress! lol

  4. Donald Duck has been a confidante to MG for almost a year. Never mocked her but has been firm with her.
    She has rewarded me by telling me she hates me. I was just trying to help, not mock her.

  5. I normally agree with most of what you say, however, on this occasion I dont.

    While most of us like to think we are tolerant of people with disabilities and make allowances, with MG you cant. Most of us have tried. But when you get constantly bombarded with the same questions, over and over and over again, it gets very frustrating. Then, after you have politely, and eventually not so politely said that you have answered those questions, or just cant, because of the complexities of it, the whole cycle starts again. Then you get the "why do you hate me", followed by "I have autism and you have to understand...." or "my mum says" culminating in a temper tantrum that even a 3yo would be proud of.

    You yourself have made comments on the amount of messages you have received from her. She is not interested in any sort of conversation, and her obsession with Jo Joyner, is frankly, disturbing.

    There are a lot of people on WW with various problems, but most tend to try and overcome these, or not let them dominate what they want to say. Sadly, with this poster, it is not the case.

    1. There's no doubt Mormon Girl is canny and knows how to use her disability to an advantage, but my argument is that someone with such a disability as autism, which is a cognitive spatial disability, shouldn't be allowed to post freely on a discussion forum - certainly not those fora of the scope of WW or DS, whose members contain some nasty headcases and some very ignorant people at the best of times.

      She's already threatened to kill herself on DS, which prompted a thread to be locked. Mormon Girl is in her early twenties but has the rational capacity of a child. If she's allowed to post, the best thing to do would simply not engage with her at all. If she's ignored, she won't bother. But feed her anything for thought and she'll grasp the mettle.

      Jark isn't my favourite person in the world, but having a mum who works with autistic people, he does know how to handle her - by ignorning her. BTW, I didn't include Donald Duck in my criticism, for the record. But I did include SOETMO and NeverMindMe, both of whom have been relentless bullies in other spheres - and against women on the forum - in other incidents. I'm only surprised Shamelessness didn't join in.

    2. Emilla, I was not implying you included me as being a bully but someone who posted that I am. Yes, I am a bully to one female ONLY. That rotten hag who is a fictional character. I know you have a similar opinion to me of her. I am cruel & nasty about her because I think she deserves it but Ann Mitchell is a real gem.
