    which is why I'm tipping it.

    Do we denigrate rape and harassment by describing them as "bullying"? I don't think so. "Bullies," by definition, hurt their victims because they enjoy causing pain. Their motivation is sadism.

    I like the term "bullying" just fine in this context and will continue to use it, thanks.
