and we care about that muppet because ?

If the bill was actually designed to do what he thinks, it might almost have been useful.

However its not, its designed to allow the government to control everyones access to the internet, and more specifically, control the "social media giants". They dont care how useless or impractical it is, just as long as they "do something".

You could have just said he'd thrown his support behind the bill without then going on to repeat the accusation that made him do it in the first place, particularly as you say the accuser has expressed their regret and apologised for making it. I'm sure Peter would be impressed with you repeating it. Would you say it to his face?

There could be legal consequences too as well as action taken under the online harms legislation.

The funny thing is, as soon as you complain about this sort of thing, you draw attention to it. Better to ignore such remarks. I got called names at school now and again, as I think we all did from time to time, but it didn't destroy my life and send me over the edge.

Sticks and stones, and all that.
It's called The Barbera Streisand effect.

In this country protective legislation applies to everyone, regardless of whether we personally like them or not.

She didn't post anything, it was taken from an interview she did 18yrs ago, and then relayed to her again in the recent trial.

YOU however have posted about it.

Perhaps Richard will now contemplate how this proposed legislation can have unintended consequences that might be coming at him as well as the rest of us.

The Bill should be killed, and the sooner the better.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

On the BBC lunchtime news, the head of Ofcom (the new media regulator) was reported as saying that site owners must do much more to protect women online from inappropriate online comments, as they are one of the groups most likely to be a victim of this sort of behaviour. Women receive more online abuse than men online and are more distressed by it.

A young folk singer who uses the internet to promote her music described some of the comments she has received as a relentless, distressing and scary pile on.

It's report found that only 42% of women felt confident about speaking freely online:

So she's worked hard to created a platform for herself to voice her 'opinions' and for her music. Maybe if she kept her opinions to herself and just concentrated on her music she might be a lot better off.

As for the other 58%, I doubt that's got much to do with online abuse.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Richard, it would be helpful if you could point out where in the linked programme the item was, to save CF'ers having to search for it, please?

(for example, in this case, it was at 25:21)

Says who? Being distressed is a personal thing, not a gender thing.

While totally take your point ,I don't note as a matter of course , date and times of radio (or any any other media for that matter) . And as it could be some time later I have no hope of remembering such details.
