I would like to say for the record that this is the FIRST TIME I've withheld dong when someone was so desperately asking for some.

It was made clear that everyone pretty much ignored X-23 after "Second Coming" and none of her friends ever bothered trying to hear her side of the story and learn why she joined X-Force and why she lied to them about it.
But let's actually look at X-23 #1`and the awful unanimous demonising X received at the hands of her friends.
Laura spies on Hellion, sees him be a jerk to someone else cause he lost his hands, doesn't make her presence known.
Laura makes friends with Storm.
Page 16 onwards:
Rockslide: You would. Hey Hellion, Guess what I heard about your crazy girlfriend.
Hellion: My Crazy-- Oh. Don't call her that.
Surge: Your girlfriend or crazy?
Hellion: What did you hea?
Rockslide: That she doesn't sleep in her room anymore. She's always outside instead.
Surge: Speak of the devil.
Hellion: Stop it.
Surge: So NOW you come to say hello?
Hellion: Shut it, Surge.
Surge: No. She's the one that blablakillsquad, didn't tell us, her so-called "friends".
Anole: Nori, stop.
*Hellion makes awkward onesided conversation with Laura.*
Laura: I have missed you.
Hellion: You'ver never said that to me before.
Laura: You know I'm not good with word. Or anything else.
Rockslide: I'm gonna barf.
Dust: I think they're beautiful. You should both be ashamed of yourselves for being so cruel to Laura, especially after all she's done for us.
Rockslide: If she can't take a little ribbing, then maybe she should have let us in on what was going on.
Dust: What's in the past doesn't matter.
Anole: Come on guys.
Surge: I'm sorry, but she was suppose to be here to learn how NOT to kill people.
Rockslide: Yeah. No offense, Laura, But I feel like you're more freaky now than when you got here.
Anole: Oh right, that's not offensive.
(this goes on for a while, Dust says Surge is being a b-word. Laura actually sticks up for self, Cyclops comes to collect Laura and tells Surge her attidute sucks.)
Then she skips town during the assignment she is sent on.
So basically with "everyone" you mean, Surge and sometimes some ribbing from Rockslide. Anole, Dust, and Hellion had no grudge and were totally sticking up for her. Of the rest of her friends we only know that Pixie was totally willing to cheerfully hang out with Warpath and Domino of the same X-Force.

X-23 was an utter bitch to the NXM (especially Hellion). I thought it was obvious..?

I think she was right to do what she did but that she should have told Laura what she had done after they were alone.
There's nothing in the dialogue that suggests that the X-kids all of the sudden fear and actively shun her now.

And maybe you didn't notice but the reason why X-23 was hiding in the bushes and sleeping in the woods was because the demon possessing Wolverine was messing with her mind, causing her to have nightmares, and making her think that she might kill everyone. There was nothing to indicate that she was avoiding people prior to Wolverine getting possessed. Everyone treated her normally in all her appearances outside of X-Force while she was on X-Force. X-23 was even in "Pixie Strikes Back" while she was on X-Force, she acted fine around everyone, she participated in social activities with her friends, and everyone treated her normally.
