I used to be more of a just ignore it type person, but recently I've pretty much vowed that I'll stick up for someone who's getting bullied- I won't engage the person too much, but I will state that they're being a dick or something of that effect.I've also stopped tolerating offensive language (I don't mean a swear word here or there, either) and will not only tell someone that their language is unacceptable, but I'll ignore/report as necessary.I realize that it doesn't necessarily do that much good, but at the same time, it does more good than just ignoring it, and I hope that if enough people start letting others know that their behavior is unacceptable, maybe some of those people will stop acting like that.I have to kind of liken it to bullies at school. I remember getting picked on something terrible as I was growing up, and teachers/parents (not mine)/etc would always tell me the best course of action was to just ignore it, and of course the bullies would get away with it. I don't think you should ignore bullies; you keep shaming them until they get the picture.
