Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

I've never seen or encountered a ghost*, although I know a few people who claim to have done.

I'm sure if it did happen though, I'd be straight onto a solicitor to get an injunction order on all that skulking about at midnight rattling chains and the like.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

I've encountered spirits since I was about 8 years old and do indeed believe that, in the main, they are people just like us. In fact, many once lived on this plane of existence as we currently do.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

So they can get offended then. That opens a whole new world of litigation. The compensation solicitors will be happy.

So have I encountered spirits on many occasions in my life.

Whisky, rum and brandy in particular.

I'm not too keen on Dark rum(don't like the taste) but have no problem with the other 2.

I'm sure they can, but resolving this won't be done in the way that us mere mortals do.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Compensation and retribution for all good and evil deeds done on Earth appears to be the principle.

Coming back to Earth, all of this legislation wouldn't be necessary if people were just kind and respectful to each other!

Never gonna happen Richard, you could hang around until the end of the Human race and never see it.

Of course there's a chance that people are by then so dumbed down it won't matter . . .

I think you'll find most of the recent comments were spawned by your "ghost" comment.

Pointless getting upset by it.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

I'm not, I wasn't referring to the light hearted comments, I meant the mean things that people say to people who have a disfigurement etc.

People everywhere, irrespective of who they are, can be verbally abused at any time by anyone - there is no prerequisite of being 'disabled etc' for this to happen.

I can probably understand where your 'frustrations' are coming from Richard, but by taking your quote in the way you (hopefully) didn't intend it to be taken, one could assume your only concern is abuse given to the disabled . . and therefore dismissive of all others.

Simply trying to point out that the most innocent of statements could - by those who look for it - be construed as something it isn't

No disrespect intended, the 'unfairness' of life is there for all to see, and at least you have the courage to speak up when you feel it's needed.

Hey, Richard, could you let me know the prescriptions you are currently on? Sometimes I wish I lived in your world.

Not so much at other times, but maybe I could regulate that!

Sorry, no offence, but really... ghosts??

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Ofcom intend to follow countries like Germany and lead a 'global assault' on online abuses covering everything from bullying & harrassment to child abuse. Germany has seen many more moderators taken on to remove innapropriate postings and deal with the perpetrators.

They believe that they are better placed to fight online abuses because it will take thr Government time to set up other bodies.

A formal duty of care placed upon providers of interaction services is proposed to ensure the wellbeing of their service users. This follows the failure of self regulation and the fact that 40% of our most vulnerable in society have experienced innapropriate treatment by others leading to 52% of the public calling for action.

A third of all adults find it difficult to use the internet without being offended by the content.

Newspaper article:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...buses-protect/

Radio discussion:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bk1c1k

It emerged that one of the men involved in bringing this initiative to Germany was found to have once called someone an "idiot" online, but he has since claimed that he wouldn't do this in the present day.

Some have called this an attack on free speech, whilst others have welcomed this as being long overdue.
