I write some pretty controversial things, and I'm fine with that. People are going to disagree, and I could care less. But I always get the vibe of school age bullies whenever someone says something rude and then tags all their friends so they could jump on the band wagon. It's like a group of stupid kids pointing and laughing at the one odd ball in class. Anyone else get this vibe?

I must admit I have never seen this phenomenon before but I do agree that there is an element of the schoolyard here - I do think in fairness that it is unintentional and the pack mentality develops - On a couple of occasions I have seen a mob swoop in on an argument but never with tagging and it did make me feel uncomfortable.
If this does happen to you, I think the best advice is don't engage with them - Go I and happy to engage in a courteous debate but not a slagging match that could develop into a possible bullying situation.
I myself if any discussion I am in degenerates, I just walk away.1
