Tracking The Internet Trolls

Submitted by: Fancys_Asst 5 years ago in Tech

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

It`s also freedom of speech to confront him about it, but that went about as well as anyone could`ve expected, amiright?

No point confronting him about it. You`d be better off sending his name and address to the people he pissed off.

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.

"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

[quote]what is wrong with being racist OR being a troll? im dead serious. if he is a racist its HIS CHOICE![/quote]

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.

At the risk of feeding yet another troll (and i hope you`re not one), here goes: Cardiff. Not Tardis.

"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?

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"

Most trolls use the defense "I did it for the lulz", no accounting for taste in humor.

By consulting with a "member of the troll community" do they mean logging onto 4chan?
