Stashed in: Rock!, Bullies

That’s a question musician Amanda Palmer, in her typically candid, crowd-sourcing way, got at in a blog post over the weekend, with revelatory results. In her post, she admits that while “ego surfing” for stories about herself one night, she found a different Amanda in her Google search. She hadn’t heard of Amanda Todd before. She didn’t know about the teenage girl who’d become a viral star for making a YouTube video about her struggles with “bullying, suicide, self harm.” She didn’t know that a month later, she committed suicide.As Palmer notes, she shares more with Todd than just a first name. Both of them had been inspired by Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” to tell their stories via a stream of note cards. And they both experienced the relentless viciousness of bullies.

Is bullying considered socially acceptable?

If not, why haven't we as a society been able to stamp out bullying?

there are smaller tribes in schools and businesses?  so bullying can exist in micro while society at large frowns on it?

That makes sense. This is all about cliques / mobs doing things society does not accept.
