Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Instagram have introduced a feature whereby posts are checked by AI. If the post contains hurtful or offensive comments, a "are you sure you want to post this?" message will appear.

I don't think that this will do much to stop those out to cause deliberate upset, but it might stop posts posted in anger.

It also gives them the justification to ban/suspend the poster if enough people complain, as they checked with them before they posted it.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

So "hurtful or offensive" in who's opinion exactly ?

How can an AI possibly know whats either of these.

Presumably humans teach it based on items that have been accepted widely as hurtful or offensive. There are probably some quick wins.

I think we have been on that merry-go-round already.

Let's hope Boris puts an end to snowflakism in politics. All this political correctness is driving many of us up the wall.

Are you being a snowflake about snowflakism?

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Gary Linekar (and others) are to use a new initiative to deal with trolls:

There was also an interesting programme the other day about someone who suffered mental health issues after online bullying:

Just make sure you don't get done for speeding.

So they've never heard of "Don't feed the troll" before? Pathetic.

Apparently not.

I mean who would have thought it eh ? block and report trolls, amazing stuff.

Next they will realise they dont have to even read it - or better still, just dont use twitter at all.

Its almost as revolutionary as when people first discovered the TV off button, when programmes they dont like come on.

Sorry, I'm not having answers like these, they're much too honest, straight forward and logical.
Please try again, but this time come up with something so off the wall and ridiculous that it keeps the frenzy going
