In brief: No one wins.

If one is bullied either emotionally or physically, revenge is not the answer (check out the new tv show that dissects the complexities).
Learn an approach to stand up to the bullying that will raise yourself esteem, and make the aggressor look silly. If you are young, consider informing the bully's parents directly. Or be the bigger person, and ignore the bullying, slough it off.

In brief: Not really

At worst, revenge can backfire and worsen or escalate the bullying.
Revenge can also turn the victim into a bully. Generally assertiveness techniques (for bullied students and bystanders) help. Assistance to teachers and parents also help identify and address bullying. Check out http://bullyfree.Com/.
