Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

A new 'Digital Markets Unit' is to be created:

According to today's 'The Media Show', they will be working with Ofcom when they start regulating the internet in the UK:

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

I guess they havent quite grasped the concept of proxy servers and VPNs yet.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

It's emerged that facebook petitioned for exemption from being responsible for hate speech & hate crime on it's site last year:

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Hardly an earth shattering revelation.

Posters are responsible for what they post, not the site/software they use.

This new bill puts a lot more responsibility onto the sites themselves, though it is proposed to allow them various defences.

Devised by clueless idiots who have no idea how the internet and sites work.

There is a sanction of blocking sites (amongst others) that don't comply with UK rules; they must be able to do this as some countries do this to block western sites.

I suppose people could use a VPN to get round this, but how many would go to the trouble & expense? They may also face personal sanctions for accessing proscribed sites and the free VPN providers are said to be dodgy.

So, whilst people could risk doing it, I think that it would seriously damage the viability of a website. Trump threatened to block tik toc in the USA unless it was sold to an American company.

There are plenty of free VPN's that are not dodgy, even Opera has a built in VPN that is only one click to use. If you have to install a VPN all you do is run the software they provide, definitely not rocket science. I use a VPN for all sorts of reasons when i need to. A simple google search will give anyone after a VPN all the info they need.

I was going by reports such as this that say that you effectively pay for all VPN's, either with your money or your data:

https://www.cnet.com/how-to/best-fre...ey-dont-exist/

People can use them for privacy/security, but whose to say that the VPN provider is trustworthy even if it's a paid for service? Do VPN's check for illegal material and go on to report it?? I don't mean for things like pirated films, but terrorism, illegal porn etc.

Having said that, I would be more inclined to trust something like Opera.
