Yes me too. Ooopppssss.... Damn I must stop dropping my Remote Control...

I know it's hard for normal folk to believe but some people really are that pathetic! Anyway what I advise is to do a screenshot of any such abuse so the proof is obtained and can be used in evidence... I've reported it before when a former member of CF resorted to it, note the word 'FORMER'. If it happens again I'll do likewise

Spot on. He does it to many on this forum if rep and pm's are to be believed.

I was restricted from posting for 24 hrs and asked the mod to check my rep to prove it was him avoiding the system. As usual nothing happens.

If you cannot be bothered to report things then there is no point in whinging about them.

Nonsense. Perhaps you were expecting some massive visual explosion ?
As usual you just assume when you have no clue what actually happens.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

An interesting read about hate crime in Britain post Brexit:

http://www.spectator.co.uk/2016/08/t...crime-scandal/

One police force has attempted to reassure the LGBT community with this initiative:

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016...ht-hate-crime/

But when members of this community tell lies, it doesn't help their cause

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

I've been sent this as alternative viewpoint regarding "trolls":

https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...ay-i-met-troll

I found it interesting to read about the problems associated with the fact that the medium of social media etc is relatively new.

I wonder if the police will take this into account?

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

[img]Download Failed (1)[/img]Thin skinned people often cannot tell the difference between a troll and someone voicing an opinion.


We should not go with the lowest deliminator of someone saying they feel threatened or insulted by a minor comment which 99.9% of the population would not even batter an eyelid at. This way just brings an ever restrictive society where no one can express themselves or be entitled to free speech, without it being a crime.


Once we lose the ability to vent, it will lead to more physical actions to let of steam, which will be much worse in the long run.

I think that peoples feelings should be taken into consideration, but that people should voice their opinion in a polite and respectful manner.

Often, it's not the opinion of someone that's the problem, but the way that it's put across.

Having said that, should less intelligent, educated etc people, therefore be denied opportunity to make their opinion known just because they are unable to express themselves effectively??

You do make a good point, as over the years (since the 80's??) there does appear to be people who seem to spend their time perpetually 'being offended'!

The number of times that I have seen people revelling at the opportunity to call people (usually racist) on the most spurious of grounds is ridiculous.

This type are usually white and seem to be out to collect PC brownie points.

The last time I saw this was when somebody said that they had "found themselves in a prickly situation". Apparently, this innocent saying is racist as it is now said to refer to black slaves

That person was speaking complete rubbish..
