Forum Trolling
There's been a lot of trolling on this forum -- perhaps some members are not aware that these trolls are using Multiple User Accounts -- I think most sensible people know who those perpetrator(s) is/are!!!!
Below I have enclosed the following article taken from the Internet:---

Share this: Facebook1,101 Twitter102 Google+ Reddit
By Robert Purchese Published 20/10/2014

The UK government wants to get tough on internet trolling following the harassment of TV presenter Chloe Madeley - daughter of well-known TV presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan.

The maximum prison sentence for the most severe cases could rise from six months to two years, should the amendment to the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill - and the Malicious Communications Act - go through. (This doesn't apply to Scotland.)

The new law would also give police more time to collect evidence for their prosecutions.


Perhaps these trolls are not aware that there's laws that will be put in force in the future. ----Dodgy

RE: Forum Trolling
I think most forums come across the odd troll or two. I don't understand how they'd be able to trace a troll though? I guess it would be easier on some sites more than others.......

RE: Forum Trolling
I think what people don't realise when they come on sites to troll them, or to specifically attack certain members on here or member is that there IS something the police can do if the trolling takes a sinister turn.

People think because they are fonts on a screen they are untouchable, and they can go off and do the most disgusting and disgraceful things under this belief they are untouchable by the law... when actually, the law can touch them. Especially if they take things too far as I also believe it can come under the stalking laws as well.

There are indeed penalties for people targeting specific individuals:

(i) Protection from Harassment Act 1997, s 2 (harassment)

(ii) Protection from Harassment Act 1997, s 2 (stalking)

(iii) Protection from Harassment Act 1997, s 4 (fear of violence)

(iv) Protection from Harassment Act 1997, s 4A (stalking involving fear of violence, serious alarm or distress)

© breach of court order, e.g. as to anonymity:

RE: Forum Trolling
Brilliant thread. I didn't know there were laws against forum trolling? I think there should be laws put in force. I agree that some members have severely crossed that barrier.

RE: Forum Trolling
It's diabolical that some idiot has to yet again target two individuals on here. I do hope the members who were attacked by DogLover will ignore the brainless twerp and continue posting. I wouldn't mind but the attacker re-hashed something up that was months and months old.
DogLover, do everyone a favour and clear off and take your other user names with you.
DogLover is obviously Popsicle or Politically Incorrect and god knows who else.
