    I gossip about simple, unimportant things. But I hate to gossip negatively about other members behind their back (And I hate it if others do that).

    I don't gossip at all and despise people who do. If I mention negative things about somebody I will it when they are there,too.

    If I have something bad to say about someone I will do it both in their face and behind their backs. If I don't like you, I'll make sure that you know it. Some folks here know that.

    I discuss issues that concern my friends when I am asked for an opinion/advice, and never in a derogatory way. And I always try to be as objective and neutral as possible.
    You see, gossip is one of the primary mediterranean traits I fully loathe and despise and have been running away from, in hope that I would never encounter it in an a germanic community

    All in all I would say no because I don't know much about other people's lives (except my friends and family) and nor do I care to, and about those I happened to "hear" stuff, I have kept them to myself.

    Gossip is a dangerous, destructive habit. The first one that is going to be +destroyed+ is the gossiper him/herself because s/he will be starting to live in a fantasy world and miss important things in one's own life.

    No, but I do occasionally comment on incredibly stupid posts. That isn't 'gossip' though.

    I think we should have a stupid button for every post like the thanks button.

    the ratio would be 10 to 1 (in favour of stupids posts)

    No, but I think it's amusing to see people portraying their lack of personal integrity by prying in other people's private sphere and giggling about the latest rumor.
