Do you think gossip is bad? Was there a time where you can say that you gossiped when you know you really shouldn't?

I don't listen to gossip, I think gossip is bad, and I've never tried to gossip! I don't like to tell somebody some information that is not true!

Honey everyone gossips. You gossip when posting in this forum Any "idle talk" (or writing) is a form of gossip. Gossip isn't whispering lies...it's just unconstrained talk. Everybody does it.

From what I see the world thrives and revolves around gossip. It doesn't matter if it is good or bad. Just watch how the ears perk up when you mention the name Paris Hilton or Britney Spears. People can't wait to hear the latest gossip. And now we even have shows on TV that are making millions just dishing out the gossip. And look at all the magazines in stores and at the check-out line in the supermarkets the racks are full of gossip magazines. Everyone gossips or likes to hear gossip. Some want to be the first to hear gossip so they can pass it on to others. I guess sooner than later everyone makes that mistake. We all open our mouth and say some things that would have been better off not mentioned. I don't think it has anything to do with your health. It's just nature to gossip and men are worse than women but they deny it. Get real men,you know it true!

I agree! Just take Jamie Lynn Spears (sister of Britney) as an example. They're making her pregnancy a big deal just coz she's a celebrity and a young one too. I think you're right too that gossip is a part of life now.

Not all gossip is bad, if the person you are talking about knowa you are. Like you are trying to find some good advice for that person. Sometimes the person you are talking about wants you to, to find a solution for their problem. I don't gossip about people if they don't want it. Then it is bad.
