    Nov 20 2011: I'm going to focus on the last question. "What's the best way to Deal With It?"
    Because there are other effective ways but obviously will affect the workplace.
    I think the best way to deal with it is just to make the aggressor understand that is putting a person uncomfortable or showing not interested at the time of bullying.
    Anyway I think the best way would be to appeal to the workers union or maybe anyone that matches of the organization.

      So you would take action to help the bullied colleague? If you would, wouldn’t you be afraid to be the next victim and lose your comfortable situation?
