Hi, I did not mean to step over bounds but there is a difference between bullying and fighting and physical violence online and I see neither, but that is of course your decision but it maybe wise for someone to actually understand verbal conjectures as there are implications on party A that clearly dictates any form of violence as step outside is a polite way to say settle a difference outside of a place of business or home. Physical violence would state bodily harm as to break a leg or nose or choking and such as there is no indications to that matter. Clearly no one understand's typical English, but before you judge a book by it's cover alone you must see all angles and it is quite apparent no one has seen all angles and if truth be told and by looking at the beginning conversations back on page 67 ( I think) I believe the bullying started from two members and it is clear and concise typical online bullying by two members here. I think it would be wise for staff here to clearly get a second opinion from a person who understands English and proper bodily tones and proper word placements.Nobody has been engaged in bullying against @chris. In fact, it was found to be the opposite as @chris sent a conversation inciting physical violence on this forum, which will not be tolerated due to the size of this island. As such, he has officially been warned about that.
All ideas are welcome here. However, if it is found to be inaccurate by anyone, be prepared for someone to question you about it as this is not Facebook and citations are gold in forming a debate, next to not relying on an ad hominem as a crutch. This extends to all Okinawa.Org staff members, as well as @David (the founder), as the title and status of belonging to Okinawa.Org's core do not remove them from having to explain themselves or to be above the rules either.
Everyone is encouraged to report all content with a note so that we may determine the proper action to take. All reports are kept anonymous and, for the most part, handled anonymously.

Thank you and back on topic, please!
