Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

The internet has moved beyond the point at which it's any longer possible to exercise any major form of control over it. The genie is out of the bottle.

You would need one of those massive supercomputers to do that job.

Nobody is allowed to experience anything bad any more. It's illegal.

Now everyone's life is cured!

I find that remark grossly insulting and offensive and am going to report you to the thought police. Expect a knock on your door any time...

Wow, it would take forever



According to a meeting that I went to recently about discrimination based upon disability (mentioned earlier), hostility is now viewed by the police as a form of bullying.

If someone doesn't like someone, the police would still expect them to be treated with respect and courtesy. This is especially the case if the reason is because they are vulnerable or in a minority group.

I think it's because even bigots, bullies etc have found that most decent people reject and socially isolate them when they are upfront about it, so they try to hurt and discriminate against people in a more subtle manner.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Learned today that people who have suffered online abuse, harrassment, stalking, discrimination etc who complain to the police are to be given an app that only the police can distribute.

It takes screenshots, video & audio recordings etc to be used as evidence.

By getting victims to collate their own evidence, I suppose this frees up police resources and the clampdown on this sort of behaviour won't take up too much extra time either.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

An "App", so only of any use on a smartphone then.

And how will they make it that "only the police can distribute".

I suppose tablets can be used too.

The police say that they will distribute it (it will be password protected) only to those who need to make use of it.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Right, because no one will find out the password, or hack the site, or distribute it once they have a copy.

More typical tech cluelessness from those making these decisions.

(and really, there are tons of apps that can take screenshots and recordings already).
