Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

whats troubling is as centrists get pushed out of the main social media companies they can end up finding alternate ones when they can find themselves around real nazi's and communists.
its better to keep them on facebook and twitter but keep them under control than outright ban and their ideas can be challenged.

But there aren't any platforms that have the same, or anywhere near the same, reach and numbers of subscribers.

If they follow people like Yaxley-Lennon, they are not "centrists".

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

The Independent is reporting that Adam Mosseri, the boss of Instagram, has said that help is needed by social networks to stop online trolls and that they "cannot stop people saying mean or nasy things" alone.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

On behalf of facebook, Nick Clegg has today called for more regulation to stamp out harmful content, hate speech and fake news.

I'm pleasently surprised that internet sites are doing the right thing as it's long overdue. Too many lives have been lost or ruined.

Hmm! Well no authority has managed to do that with printed media so far, so I suspect that no authority will control online media either. The only thing that talks with media is being sued for huge sums and the average Joe doesn't have the resources to go to court.

You make a good point Maggy. The Government has cut and cut legal aid, meaning that the justice is denied to the poorest in our society.

The Equalities and Human Rights Commission has made a report highlighting this only today. Manchester Law Centre has launched a campaign to let people know what's going on and to call for restoration of legal aid for the most vulnerable in society.

They seem to be talking about no-platforming at universities. I think it depends. If you shout down an invited speaker invited by others to a private meeting then I don't really think that's on but other forms of protest up to and including refusing to grant a speaker a platform which you somewhat control is fine.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

The Church of England has announced ten new digital commandments to try and improve online interaction:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...-social-media/

These include:

- Do not share sexually explicit, threatening or discriminatory posts.

- Speak to others online the way you would speak to them in person.

- Remember that your posts could remain online forever and that you can be held accountable for them.

- Be aware of childrens safety.

- Verify the accuracy of everything you share online.

I think internet moderation is beyond even god's abilities and patience.
