New spying powers will be used to bring cyberbullies and online trolls to justice

Post by hogwash on 25.12.15 14:50

New spying laws will be used to bring online bullies and trolls to justice, the Home Secretary says.

Theresa May reportedly claims the surveillance powers - unveiled under the Investigatory Powers Bill last month - will help police and spooks to track down and identify anonymous cyberbullies.


This is because they will force Internet firms to retain individuals' connection records - which may then be used by officials to unmask abusive users going by various aliases, The Times reports.

So it begins.

They already do this, the difference is that they will have the legal power to use it to come knocking on your door.

More "hate crime" cases coming up.

Personally, I don't mind if the security services want to check my emails/online activity to make sure I'm not engaged in terrorism/sexual abuse/heinous crime. However, they already have the power and expertise to do that.

It's going to be interesting to see what can possibly be legislated in terms of actually defining 'troll' and 'cyber bully'.

There will be a group of people at the top deciding what you can and can't think.

This forum would be an obvious target (and many other forums that question the official lines).

Perhaps Theresa has a special couple of cohorts who have specifically targeted Mr Bennett from this site with their dubious shadowy characters harassing him and his family, we still have not seen her documentary either, one year later after her speech rendering to find the "Truth" after Mrs Brenda Leyland was targeted by special friends from Sky news?
Sir Bernard Hogan Howe never found evidence of obscene, nasty pernicious nature that was sent to Mrs Leyland's twitter account in the demise of this lady, did you Sir Bernard, but you found a certain dossier from a couple you had previously helped to raise funds for?

Troll hunter: Twitter boss pledges a clampdown on abusive users as new powers are introduced to tackle online bullies 


Social media giant Twitter has pledged to clamp down on trolls once and for all, according to reports.


Malicious users of the site are said to be hampering its efforts to be a frontrunner in the online news market and its European head, Bruce Daisley, said Twitter is committed to cleansing the service as it enters its 10th year.


The company is reportedly planning to introduce measures that spell out to trolls that their comments have an impact offline as well as online.

This is too easy for the controllers.

Get people to post "hateful" stuff and wait for the public demand that something needs to be done aboout it.

Problem, reaction, solution.

The public get led by the nose every time.

If Twitter were to disappear altogether it would be no loss to the planet. It's a disgusting medium imo whichever way I look at it.

If this old fashioned bird aquila had her way, she'd send Twitter to room 101.
