Not recently. When I spread rumours, I only spread harmless rumours rather than suffocating bad talk. The person getting "rumoured" doesn't mind. I believe hurtful/malicious sorts are best dealt with by laughing at them and along with them!!
I've had tons of rumors spread about me, especially in high school but even still it seems. I tend not to gossip, I'll listen to other people gossip all they want but I'm not the kind of talk about people behind their back because I'm very confrontational and I have no problem speaking to the person in question.
