That behaviour they often call it backbiting. It's one of the behaviours that most people really hate so much. In my country the women are well-known for this fault. The act of talking I'll about other people in their absence is really hurting. In a matter of fact, most men have now reverted to that kind of bad character. l personally condemn that character and l really hate it for that matter. Do you like backbiting some other people? That's very immoral so to speak . Because those who speak about others will in their absence will speak about you when you are not with them. Have a good start of the week!

It's called gossiping here too. I don't like it and never join in discussions about others.

NO, I hate people who gossip and I avoid them. As they talk of the others, they will do about you.

I think what you are talking about is called gossip. Gossip is wrong and a sin in Christianity. However, many still gossip. It is hard not to sometimes. Backbiting is something different where you are purposely trying to hurt someone with the gossip by making things up. Gossip is often at least partially true. Backbiting or backstabbing is more like telling lies against someone to their friends to make them think badly of the person. While gossip isn't as bad as backbiting, it is still hurtful. That being said, it is a fine line between gathering information for how to pray for someone else, and telling tales in gossip. Not everything is needful for prayer or to share how someone is doing,

I try not to. But, I'll admit I've vented to FGeorge or my friends about people.

Agreed, I'd rather avoid doing that and I don't think highly of those who do. I may talk about someone 'behind their back' if I'm asked about them, but I prefer staying vague and try my best to be aware of the consequences. Unfortunately it's easy to fall victim of misunderstandings: even if I didn't speak badly about a person, rumors might spread in a way that distort reality. Have a good start of week as well.

I am a believer in keeping quiet on backstabbing other people since the saying is "A joke is funny until you are the victim then it is hilarious."

I try not to gossip. I understand some people use this as a weird form of “bonding”, but it starts from a bad place, and it isn’t a good habit to start. It can ruin relationships, and I have seen it hurt churches as well.
