Verbal abuse is not a joke - I thought the poster took the
high road - let anyone that verbally abuses you rot in their own insecurity. - That is what it is all about anyways. I don't
speak (silent treatment) when I'm really pissed off - I find it much more effective - not to mention people I don't know get a good night/day sleep

wow... just wow.....

Verbal abuse has nothing to do with insecurity it has to do with being PISSED off and needing to vent. I agree that its not a nice thing to do, but if you can't defend yourself against verbal abuse, you have no right living on this planet. It is a fact of life. Avoid the person who is yelling at you, talk to them, whatever it takes, but the GOVERNMENT has no business controlling it... thats just madness.

Regulating verbal abuse will lead to physical abuse. Mark my words... violent crime will skyrocket if France tries to pass something like this.

France wants to intrude on every aspect of people's lives from how they raise their children to now how partners talk to each other. If that is not idiotic to you then I can not help you.

Next we'll have laws against "silent abuse". And where the hell is this crap about yelling equating "abuse"? People get mad, people yell. Only the extremely self-absorbed want the law to come in and avenge.
