Will the Police be investigating these allegations as part of their crackdown on internet trolls?

I doubt it as these are seperate incidents (not allegations), they are more likely to be blacklisted from working with vulnerable people, struck off and dismissed.

They may also be placed onto the Dismissed Staff Register.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

The best way to avoid most trolls is to ignore them..Give them no debate,never respond and just pretend that they don't exist. They soon get fed and leave. If you can't then you should leave.

Mind if some members did that this place might be empty..

Very true.

A thread over ten years old about telephones was recently ressurected.

It was interesting to see how friendly people were towards each other then and how the overriding focus was on trying to help.

There was none of the point scoring, stirring and trying to be clever business at all.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

I will point out that rep given in the technical forums is higher point wise than in the basement area because we are trying to encourage members to give more technical help in those areas so that's probably why there was so much help offered in that thread.

Indeed I'm wondering how many members have actually read the acceptable use policy recently?Not many I'm thinking.

I didn't know that Maggy, it's not something i've looked into.

I agree with your comment Re: Acceptable use policy.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Police look to treating sexism & misogyny as Hate Crimes:

https://www.theguardian.com/society/...lice-crackdown

This behaviour can range from harrassment, to unwanted advances and outright sexual assault.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

I always try to do Maggy but when you get someone who tries to bypass open discussion by using the rep system...

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Does an ignored person have the ability to give rep?

Then use the systems in place to make complaints about abuse. I trust you have read those articles about T&Cs I mentioned.

You cannot "bypass discussion" using reps.

Maybe you need to re-read the reputation guidelines.
