Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

A study has found that offensive posts shoot up by 22% according to the weather!

I must confess to cursing rain sometimes.

Lock me up and throw away the key.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Was that the study conducted by the 'No Sheet Sherlock' society?

It's something that had never occurred to me. Maybe someone who was stuck inside on a miserable cold day might decide to take out their depressive feelings on someone else, but on a hot sunny day you'd think they'd be happy and be out enjoying the sun instead of sitting thinking of unpleasant things to send to people online.

From the Guardian article

Scientists logged rises of up to 22% in racist, misogynist and homophobic tweets when temperatures rose above 42C
Above 42C (108F) is a bit more than "a hot sunny day"…

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Britain recorded its hottest-ever day Tuesday, July 19th, with temperatures hitting a high of 40.3 degrees Celsius (104.5 degrees Fahrenheit), so does that mean that none of the racist tweets, etc occurred in the UK because the temp didn't rise above 42c?

Ahh, maybe it's because people get tetchy when it's too warm and want to lash out at others online to deal with their irritation?

People definitely get aggressive when driving in the heat

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

Some absolutely shocking posts about the passing of the Queen on social media.

James Whale was furious on Talk TV last night, he said how would they feel if such things were being said about their grandmother, mother etc who had just died. He ended by saying "This isn't free speech, it's hate speech".
