“Systemic bullying, hazing and abuse generally are identified with poor, weak or toxic organizational cultures. Cultures that are toxic have stated ethical values that are espoused but not employed, and other non-ethical values which are operational, dominant, but unstated.

Such cultures thrive when good people are silent, silenced, or pushed out; when bad apples are vocal, retained, promoted, and empowered; and when the neutral majority remain silent in order to survive. Those who are most successful in such a toxic culture are those who have adapted to it, or adopted it as their own”. (McKay, Arnold, Fratzl & Thomas, 2008)

University of Newcastle Rankings

Once again the University of Newcastle rides high in the rankings.

"Something in the water: On further looking into students using sex to earn money the Newcastle Herald found that “at the end of 2013 there were 171 University of Newcastle students registered to a specialist online dating website called Seeking Arrangement that matches students with a ‘‘sugar daddy’’ to fund their education.” The website told the paper that the Newcastle had the third highest number of members on the site of all tertiary institutes in Australia. It doesn’t identify the other two, but HW is all ears." (emphasis added)

  2. There is a distinct possibility that the University sex scandal may have actually been planted in the media by the University itself. I know this sounds far fetched but it might be a ploy to distract the public's attention from the recent plagiarism scandal.

    There is no evidence of the videos she made or names of any witnesses or officials.

    The supposed perpetrator is nameless and wasn't expelled but only "counselled". She may have never existed. The University official was also nameless. The NUSA representative was also not named but seemed remarkably sympathetic to the idea of the sugar daddy website. She also has not been named.

    The Newcastle herald website had comments disabled on the article. Why?

    With the Universities excellent reputation for gagging and control are we supposed to believe that the University reported it to the media themselves? I doubt it. Who actually reported the incident? We will never know.

    Instead the University may want to portray themselves as the victim of a scandal rather than previously being exposed as greedy and corrupt.

    Sociopaths lie flawlessly. I wouldn't put it past those folk to have created a diversion from the serious MyMaster scandal. That scandal has already cost them their overseas reputation. They want to keep winning at any cost.

    Good journalists always list their sources to avoid conjecture.

    1. So instead the University is the tireless victim of unscrupulous students instead of being ruthless and corrupt like the MyMaster scandal suggests............

    2. Correction. Only the NUSA representative was named. All other sources unlisted.

  3. Exactly the marketing division of the University is already in overdrive.

    Remember the Vice Chancellor mentioning that they were on a reputation building campaign?

    The summation I can come up with is that;

    The University doesn't have a bullying problem it can fix.

    Instead it has a sociopath problem which is far more damaging and dangerous than I could have ever imagined.

    The management's plan is perfect except for one small flaw. Sociopaths are not tremendously loyal to eachother. Their collective strength has already vanished.

    They also enjoy inflicting pain on their victims which is becoming more and more noticeable with each new scandal. This has a lifespan as after a while people want a fair go. As they get used to victimising others they also get lazy with details as they want to keep the excitement of destruction and chaos going. People start asking awkward questions.

    Their downfall will be people wanting stability and truth. They don't want to provide this as it ruins their sport.

    The bullying I experienced at the University was not ordinary bullying. The remarkable lack of conscience at every level of staff meant there was a high premium on my emotional distress which had to be defended at all costs.
