Do we reward bad behavior to much with attention.

like if a guy does something really inappropriate to a girl, and then she starts to talk to him more.
Or you make fun of someone in a harsh way and people laugh and egg it on.

I'd say yes, because I'm sure if someone was making fun of another and nobody was egging that person on or even acknowledged them he/she would feel beyond awkward.

Well in school, that's how things seem to work. If someone is getting picked on, a good amount of people would join in, or support the aggressor. Meh, it's more or less peer pressure.

ppl give attention to "negativity" more than "positivity"...i duno why
not matter wat..a bad behaviour that lead to "evil" or "betterment" sure caught ppl attention..

question...
if a guy "touch" a girl n she scream for help the guy will be blame but if the girl "touch" the guy why the girl not blame...

Because any straight guy would love to be "touched" by a girl, but girls don't like sex so they'll get a guy arrested to make sure he doesn't do it again.

I thought the thread title was about CR, specifically how bad threads get too much attention, oh well.

I see that too. this is partly because disasters, murder and tragedy are what sell (besides sex). People can have such a morbid fascination with the darker side of human nature and the suffering of others. I think this is partly so they can recieve a boost in self-confidence, to make their own lives and problems seem not as bad.

most men do love to be touched by a girl, but some women take it too far and also with the wrong guys [married, taken] . sexual harassment is done on both men and women . but to say that girls dont like sex so that is why they complain is wrong . women like sex just as much as men, but to be forced into sex is a whole different thing . even if it doesnt lead to sex, men cannot just grab a womans butt just because he feels like it .

however it is true that the more positive attention one gets for bad behavior the more likely they will continue to commit that crime or escalate the crime to a higher level . such as in gangs, mobs, cults, etc .

this reminds me of the training method used on dogs . when a dog does something good you reward them with praise . however when they do something bad you are to completely ignore their bad behavior . since dogs crave attention from their masters more than anything they will refrain from doing the bad behavior in favor of the behavior that grants them attention .

Corn flakes are good. I prefer Cheerios though.
