As you probably know, bullying is a behavior that will be directed at
anyone who triggers it, be it a family member or not.

Yes, everyone. Name two regulars here that have never bickered.

Paris residents experience an eclipse of the Sun, as the light is

If you want me to know what you don't do, you should snip more
selectively so as to leave in relevant context. In general, usenet
posts are not sufficiently important or interesting for me to be
motivated to go back up to find the point to which you are responding.

If you choose not to be reader-friendly, then you should consider
limiting your responses to e-mail, in the expectation that the person
to whom you are responding might remember the point at issue.

You frequently lose me as a reader. People who write generally do not
want to alienate readers.
