Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Once again this is a slegehammer designed for the giant antisocial media sites (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram) without any thought about the effect on the thousands of little sites. Once again it demonstrates how totally ignorant these people are about how the internet works.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

The thing about the hysteria surrounding sites such as anorexia, self-harm, or suicide ones, is that the people are actively looking for those subjects regardless of access to those sites. Ironically the biggest publicisers of those subjects are the mainstream media and their hysteria over it all.

Doesn't matter if they agree with her or not, these posts are not acceptable.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Creator of the internet says that the web isn't working for women/girls as research shows that most young women surveyed had experienced online violence such as sexual harassment or threatening messages:

"online violence" WTF
Just a nonsense term, made up for dramatic effect.

We all know how reliable surveys are.
For the record, I just conducted one, and 0% had experienced "sexual harassment or threatening messages".

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

It's too easy to conjour up what appear to be alarming figures. For example if you ask a child whether they've ever been bullied at school your likely to get pretty near 100%. Doesn't mean that bullying is a regular occurence for the majority.

I would suspect an artificially inflated figure is here as well.

I've just asked the 4 people here with me about that, and it seems all 6 of them agree
