Half the population are bullied ... most only recognize it when they read this
Beth Austin reviews Bully OnLine at Suite 101: http://www.suite101.com/article.cfm/10450/102238
Thank you Tim for standing up and fighting, it took a lot of courage and perseverance, you are a hero and have armed my husband and I with the information we needed to get alongside you and fight the battle too. Sometimes one person refusing to be bullied is all it takes to inspire a nation (or with the internet, a world).
You have certainly helped me more than ANY "professional" could have. You were there when I needed you most. I feel that you have EMPOWERED me to take action for myself and to reclaim my life. You've been most helpful because you've essentially been able to "go to work with me"--something no doctor would do on a daily basis! Some days your messages were the only thing(s) getting me through the day. You literally were (are) an answer to prayer. I won't forget what you've done for me. (JS, USA)
I have never had such a concentration of awesome info in one place! (US survivor)
You are doing more for the oppressed than a million politicians and a billion lawyers could ever hope to and you must believe that folks care enough to tell you this.........and you absolutely must believe it. You should always be proud Tim. Your readers are proud of you and are more grateful than you will ever realise. Keep up the excellent work. (KH, UK)
I feel I have finally found a friend with a big stick called the truth. (PM, USA)
A hundred thousand thanks Tim for your web site. It provided the validation I needed and the path back to "re-empowerment" following the trauma of workplace psychological violence. Your work inspired the establishment of SAEBOW (South Australian Employees Bullied Out of Work) Help / Information Line, which is now taking calls from all over Australia as a result of our listing on your web site. (Catherine Habel, Australia)
[Bully OnLine] must be one of the best social inventions I have come across. (UK survivor)
Finding [Bully OnLine] was the best thing that had happened to me in ages - the relief was enormous. Tim, you are wonderful! And I direct people to your website every opportunity I get. (Pauline Kennedy, UK)
Bully Online has educated me to recognise workplace bullying as an epidemic. This site has told me that workplace bullying need not be an occupational hazard. I, as a spouse, am fighting back and winning. Without Bully Online this would never have been possible. (Gill Hetherington, February 2000)
Your web site has been a Godsend.
Thank you so much for validating my bullying experience. I was fired a year ago by bullies and I just found your website last week. It took my breath away and almost a full day to recover from finding something that finally spoke to my feelings. (Liz Vaughn)
You're my guru ... I don't know how I would have survived without you.
Your website gave me a strength and peace of mind, but more importantly it educated me about the bully and for all of that I feel the need to thank you once again. Your work is important. It isn't geared towards the sociopath at home.... but it is so thorough and excellently written, that those of us who stumble upon it at 3:00 a.m. searching for answers.....finally find them. Thank you so much for all that you do. (KM)
Many, many thanks to you Tim, I will forever be in your debt.
Your pages on bullying have been an enormous help to me over the past month, especially the profile of a bully. I always thought of bullying as people who just shout and push their weight about, and now I realise how much I really went through. (LC)
Your site gets better and better.
Heartfelt thanks for the wonderful advice you have given me.
I can't thank you enough for all the work you have put in.
Thank you for keeping me alive.
I am in continual awe of how PRACTICAL your information is. Before your well written web site, suicide was sitting on my shoulder as a clearer way out ... I believe I've just started breathing for the first time in 30 years. Keep up your journey and please get your butt to the U.S. We need you too. (US correspondent)
A brilliant technical achievement, incredibly informing and the best site I've ever seen.
When I first began to read the material, I was suddenly filled with emotion and I cried. The tears were not tears of sadness, they were tears of relief, relief that - at last - after 25 years of thinking there was something wrong with me, I had found something which basically said - no, there isn't anything wrong with you, it is a perfectly normal reaction to what has gone on. ... I simply wanted to thank you. (AC, UK)
...thank you for the tremendous support you have been ... I can't begin to tell you how impressed I was with your web site. The check lists and profiles depicting especially the serial bully were accurate to within 99.99999%. Incredible! I was the one that first found your web site for [my partner] while browsing the web, and what I saw really blew me away. Congratulations on a truly incredible organizational feat. (VR, USA)
I'd have gone under without it.
You are doing an EXCELLENT job; keep up the good work. I cannot tell you how grateful I am that someone, at last, is making a real impact here.
An amazing amount of information ... I wish I had come across it earlier.
