I have no problem for any sites to be available or to be searched, but some social media sites will continue to show information / videos based on past searches. Pretty straight forwards really.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Tonight's Panorama is about the rise in trolling/harrassment on Twitter. Since Musk bought the site he has reactivated previously banned accounts. These, along with a huge number of new accounts, are attributed to the rise in bullying etc.

He's a very strange individual. The latest is that he has two bodyguards who even go to the toilet with him and he's offering to sell the office plants to his remaining employees. It's all about money with him, even down to a potted plant!!!

"vulnerable" - a term often misused by people who want to control and/or blame someone (everyone) else for their own actions.


Again, thats just your opinion. I can think of lots of sites that should not exist "in my opinion", but that doesnt mean everyone else should, or will, agree.

You must love the concept of 1984, everyone controlled by the thought police.
Here , here so very put

The point was he's worth something like $188,000,000,000.

I find this link interesting, but when you get to the end just think this guy wanted money for house plants.

Why do you think he has his money, giving things away won't increase your wealth.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

From about 18:30 there's a discussion about Elon Musk and the rude & discriminatory way that he spoke on Twitter to a man he'd fired with muscular dystrophy.

He has since apologised as it is widely believed that the gentleman on the receiving end is to take legal action.

IMO Musk really isn't a fit and proper person to own an interactive website. He's reactivated lots of formerly banned accounts and allowed new ones to be opened that are trolling people and spreading misinformation.

How on Earth can a man who behaves like this be capable of clamping down on inappropriate posts be trusted or expected to deal with them properly?

There's more background to this been posted in the thread about Elon Musk taking over Twitter.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

'Protect free speech... not thin skin': Police told to focus on 'tackling serious crimes' and stop recording trivial online arguments as 'non-crime hate incidents'

Officers are to stop recording trivial online spats as ‘non-crime hate incidents.
Fresh guidelines say that offensive actions will only go on file when necessary.

Seems sensible. When it was first touted that police would be expected to get tough on internet trolls, the general consensus was that, especially as they have had their numbers cut and so don't have time to investigate burglaries etc properly, that this extra burden would be too much.

They've already said that they won't enforce the (then) new law banning smoking in cars when children are present.

The new approach to deal with it is the Online Safety Bill that will be enforced by Ofcom instead.

As this is now going through Parliament now seems a good time to let the police start to withdraw from dealing with such incidents.

Hopefully this won't mean that they will stop investigating internet crime in general as it was on the news earlier that about 40% of crime is now committed online!

I'm sure that the Governme (and the police) will be well aware that this move will also allow them to be able to say that levels of crime have gone down too

Finally, some actual common sense.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Whatsapp may be closing in the UK.

The Government wants the power to be able to read private messages for child grooming, terrorism cases etc. Whatsapp say they would rather pull out of the UK market than allow this.
