Is it ok to gossip about people you know? Do you do it, or try to avoid it? What do you do when somebody tells you something about someone else you know?

No, I agree, it really isn't ok if it's something the person you're talking about wouldn't want you to know.
It's not really o.k. to Gossip....Full Stop.

I think there is a fine line between relaying information and gossiping. If it's done in a negative manner then I don't think that is ok at all.
I agree with Thrifty. If it is something that you know the person wouldn't want others to know about or discuss, then it is not okay. If it is a harmless update about that person to a friend, then it is okay.
It's fine to say that it's not ok, but who would listen? Almost everyone gossips.
No, it is not okay, it demeans you, it demeans the people you are gossiping about and it really adds no value to anything.
What do I do with something someone has told me about someone?
Forget it as quickly as possible, if I wasn't quick enough to intercept it before it came out of their mouth.
It really depends about what, and to whom.

Generally I do not like gossip, however sometimes we all seem to talk about other people, don't we?

I do not make a habit out of it as do not agree with it.

Gossip is always sweet to part take in, but it is damaging. Its not Ok.
No, gossip can be really harmful. Like Chinese whispers how it starts and ends is often completely different.
I think it's natural to bitch about someone, once in a while. Sometimes people just get your back up and you want to vent. That is okay. It doesn't make you a 'bad' person, it's natural.

Constant gossipping though,that a bit sad, and those people are usually just very bored.
