We may as well as we get another knee jerk law to combat Trolls!

It displays the staggering level of ignorance the judiciary has for the internet. It will be a criminal act to upset someone. Will there be an official list of insults available? What about sites hosted internationally? If I host my website in the Caribbean or South America how exactly would they prevent publication? On Twitter will we see a repeat of the twitter joke trial where a man is arrested and tried for an obvious joke, but the thousands who re-tweeted the exacts same words are ignored?

Farcical, and another attempt at censorship. freedom of speech means people will get offended. So what? be offended; you are free to. Be as offended as you like. But we all know the only use to which laws like this end up being put to is to “protect the privacy” in hiding rich and powerful wrongdoing.

So frankly and as this is about bad language on the net, you can all go fuck yourselves if that’s the case.

I don’t find trolls particularly amusing. Like a playground kid shouting names. Just ignore them, if they threaten actual violence then they have broken existing laws and should be arrested for that. There is no need for more ill conceived rubbish masquerading as law.
