“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)

Visitors to our site

We have now had over 190,000 visitors to this website.

The majority of visitors have been from Australia, followed by the USA and then the United Kingdom.

No doubt there are some individuals who frequently visit this website - senior management at the University of Newcastle, Google Headquarters from Mountainview, California (thanks to the University of Newcastle) and maybe even some of those staff members that have harassed and bullied us. 

190,000 visitors is impressive and indicates the extent of interest in bullying at the University of Newcastle.

  1. The University of Newcastle has gone on official record as saying "there is no bullying problem"

    That is an outright lie.

    This blog is one of the biggest anti-bullying websites in Australian academic history. 190,000 people know exactly what is happening there.

    The University there is being run like a combination of a run down truck stop and a slaughterhouse.
