    Link: Tracking The Internet Trolls - The BBC tracks down a notorious Internet troll. Imagine doing this with some of the really obnoxious I-A-B trolls.

    I watched this when it was on bbc1, imho it should have had the voice over done by david attenborough so it could have been like a nature documentary.

    @McGovern
    You know you you can get charged with similar crimes in the U.S., right? The First Amendment does not offer protection for speech that is considered to be; "profane fighting words, profane threats, or anything considered an incitement to imminent lawless behavior"

    "he used one of the most racist terms possible"
    So, according to the BBC racism against black people is the "most racist"? Couldn`t that in itself be racist?

    how to deal with a troll

    1. ignore them.

    trolls only thrive when people feed them.

    This coming from the person who just said that "panty-waist atheist pricks" (noticing the wrong "waste" probably says something of your intelligence) should stop condemning pro-lifers? Stop yer trollin`, you`re a waste of space.

    "so being racist equals trolling now?"

    No, that`s offensive. The trolling is posting "rot in piss" on memorial sites of dead people that he had no business being there. Yes, it`s public, but thats so all the deceased loved ones can get on and say their peace, if you didn`t know the person and you say something hateful/hurtful- TROLLING

    The funny thing is he could`ve just said, "I have no idea what you`re talking about." And they`d be stuck. They could assume he actually did it, but until he verified what they were saying they had no way of truly knowing.

    Freedom of speech is a bitch. You may not like what some people have to say, but if you remove their right to say it- how long do you think it will be before you`re not allowed to say something? This is of course speaking for Americans, not those from the UK- no clue what their rights are.
