'gossip' has a bad reputation, but is apparently a vital social function...

Gossip [...] is far from pointless. It teaches us how to behave, determines our standing in the community, keeps us connected to one another and weeds out liars and cheats. Nearly two-thirds of adult conversation is devoted to people who aren't in the room, which translates to more than two hours a day. Believe it or not, this is not idle chatter. Without indirect evaluations of other people's behaviour, society would simply fall apart.


I've always felt bad about gossiping, or bitching. Especially when it's about a friend. But I have to admit, I do enjoy it. And sometimes, when I'm REALLY cross, having a damn good RANT about someone else makes me feel a lot better. It gets it all out.

gossiping, bitching, brutal honesty... )
