Then there are those bullies who feed off of each other and harass people as a group. Most commonly found in guild runs -- I encountered such a group not in a raid, but in a Heroic dungeon, Vortex Pinnacle. I was the healer and it was my first Heroic dungeon for that toon. After the tank chain pulled two groups of mobs, I wasn't able to keep up and we wiped. The usual taunts and insults ensued. Then their hunter misdirected a pack of mobs to me while the rest of the group jumped off the edge to regroup at the entrance. I died again and left. After I blacklisted each player in the group, I reported the incident to a GM. I received a reply a few days later stating that some action was taken, though no further details were specified. I suppose my point is that bullies can often 'work' as a group, whether each individual member may be aware of this or not. They usually have their own cadre of sycophants and cronies who enable their behavior. This pack mentality can often be more harmful and dangerous, because while there may be a 'lead' bully, bullying as a group diffuses the sense of responsibility for their actions, ie. 'no one's responsible because everyone is doing it'.
