If you hear gossip about someone and¿don't know them¿well, do you go along with the gossip and kick the person to the curb, ¿or do you have some class and stop it in its track?

What are your thoughts on the subject?

Now my serious response: Even casual speculation can quickly evolve into extremely hurtful disinformation.¿True story - it's about boats rather than bikes - and even still, the names have been changed. Except mine.

¿

Hi¿DT, do you know if¿that blue Ranger 33¿is for sale?¿ Somebody was aboard the other day, checking stuff over.¿Took the mainsail off.¿ I'm pretty sure it was that Bill from Bills Sails in Oklahoma City.

¿

A few days later.

¿

You know what DT?¿I saw Bill from Bill's Sails messing around that Ranger 33. I guess she's for sale. I'm interested in buying it.

¿

The Damdedst thang, DT! Somebody robbed that Ranger 33!!!¿Stripped out the interior and took the mainsail too. I saw that Bill guy from Bills Sails screwin around that boat about that time. I told the owner about it.¿He's gonna get the Sherrf get a warrant and go search Bills place.

¿

DT says: Are you sure it was Bill?¿That would be a stupid thing for him to do!!!

¿

I never met that Bill. Tall guy, black hair black moustache?

¿

DT says: Actually Bill is a little guy - bout my height - red hair and red beard.

¿

Oh.

¿

Like I say this actually happened, and before the shitstorm was over there were a lot of hard feelings and even threats of a lawsuit.

¿

DT

Life is too short and I have witnessed too many accidents this past year of good friends. Why waste time and energy and breath on gossip. I believe in encouraging people and seeing (hearing) them smile. Laughter is good medicine. All of us do stupid things from time to time but we should overlook that and still have fun at what ever it is we do and support each other because you never know what someone is going through in this life. Gentle correction is good but bad intentions hurt people and Hurt People.....Hurt People.

Very Dangerous. One Day Rumour the Next Day treated as fact. Men found guilty and hung on less.

Why would anyone talk about a person they don't know and in a bad way yet. Go figure. Makes no sense to me but then again it's 2009 and alot of things don't make as much sense as years back. "Believe only half of what you see and none of what you hear" Old street quote and works.

I've heard so much trash so many times and you are all correct...when you don't know someone, never met them, why would you listen to gossip and go along with blackballing a person....NOT NICE!!!!

No. I switch off when people start gossiping especially when it is negative and catty. Brought up to believe nobody elses life is my business or concern unless it affects me directly. Stand up against nasty gossips and tittle tattle and will try and turn it round if i can and get them thinking positively. But people by their basic nature are attracted to shit and making it. So turn and attacke person trying to say things good. Don't mind talking about people and their ways and our silliness but not when it starts to take that nasty turn. More distruction is made by a tongue than was ever done by knife or gun. JunieXXX

red; because you do not know the person, it would be difficult to "stop it in its track", you could just say to the person"i would rather not talk negitively about someone i don't know" ,and change the subject. the person "gossiping" could be sour grapes like an "ex" capttom 69
