What is Riot's official stance on bullying and victimization?

My views: Bullying is not acceptable. Positive communication should always be encouraged. Self-respect should always be encouraged. Something I've noticed here and would like to see improved: Self-respect in the face of adversity and the communication of such is often discouraged. - "Don't respond to X" - "Responding will get you banned too" Why I care: An atmosphere that ignores bullying instead of confronting it does not address the issue of bulling. There are many factors in the report system that are intended to address this, but the processes that discourage individuals from standing up for themselves in real time is damaging to the individual. Taking abuse without standing up for oneself feeds into a mentality of victimization. I do not want to see the mental health of players continue to suffer because of this misalignment. https://www.stopbullying.gov/ https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-couch/201702/6-smarter-ways-deal-bully https://bullyvaccineproject.com/why-ignoring-them-doesnt-work-2/ https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/traversing-the-inner-terrain/201102/the-victim-identity
