Bullying and social climbing

I heard about this on the (local) news this morning, a study done at UC Davis that suggests that it's not the people at the bottom of the social ladder, the disturbed and troubled kids, but the ones busily climbing the social ladder doing the bullying. Who would have thought? And these days, it's less physical and more verbal and, thanks to the internet, anonymous.

The link at the top should work, but just in case it doesn't, here it is again:

A lot of the bullying I know about comes from people in higher society. Essentially, they're telling people that they're much better than the lower society.
