If their is ever a user that picks on you or a newcomer these are the things you should do.

  Mods

  The mods will most likely bann or deal with the user if you tell them

   First you should either go to a mods profiel, give them the name or the link to the users profile. This will make it faster for them to find the user.

     Freinds

   If you have a good freind that will stick up for you or tell a mod you can do that just tell a freind who or what they are doing. This will help if you are nervous of telling.

      Flagging

     If they hapen to make a rude or vulga comment you can always flag it. The flagging button is right next to a comment.But the issue will likely be dealt with faster if you tell someone.

     
       Takeing Matters into your own hands

     If you feel that you can fend of the user from picknig on you , you can. But if you swear too, you can get in trouble too. At most you should say one sentence thats short and sweet like 'leave me alone or I will tell a mod'  Or this is your warning' something like that. You always want to atay calm and nice to him no matter what he says.

   

     Well that was my first guide so i hope its good.

If you're dealing with some form fo cyber bullying or any form of harrasment, the best and only course of action should be informing a moderator immediately. Of course, provide links to back your sources up.

It's right there in the ToS:

5. RULES OF CONDUCT ... You shall not use, allow, or enable others to use the Site, or knowingly condone use of this Site by others, in any manner that is, attempts to, or is likely to:

* be libelous, defamatory, indecent, vulgar or obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit or sexually suggestive, racially, culturally, or ethnically offensive, harmful, harassing, intimidating, threatening, hateful, objectionable, discriminatory, or abusive, or which may or may appear to impersonate anyone else;

Do not retaliate in any form, as that just continues the spam and the bullying occuring.

My computer can't. Just teleports me to an Oops!We can't find that page. Maybe flagging is not working at all.

Uhhh this is basically common sense. You should always contact a mod probably carlie since she is most active.
