Oh, I completely agree with you on libel laws, Prester. The case of Simon Singh was really horrible, and as it is pharmaceuticals can legally shut down legitimate scientific debate, which is terrifying. What this has to do with Fabrice Muamba, I'm not entirely sure. That article stinks.

She's hilarious -- s'why I linked it. But if you want to go all on-topic, the article makes it clear that her tweets must conform to Swedish law.

Trolling can be looked at in a lot of ways. Yes the average troll is just an asshole, but not all trolls are. In many cases it can be looked at as satire or parody. Look at the PeterMolydeux twitter account, that actually ended up creating an indie games festival.

As long as 4CHAN remains a haven of unadultered trollery, all is fine in the world.
"Quantacat's name is still recognised even if he watches on with detached eyes like Peter Molyneux over a cube in 3D space, staring at it with tears in his eyes, softly whispering... Someday they'll get it."
"It's frankly embarrassing. The mods on here are woeful."
"I wrinkled my nose at QC being a mod."
"At least he has some personality."

UK wins in Google's latest Transparency Report!
The VergeStatistics on the user data requests that Google receives from courts and government agencies are also available in the report, broken down by country. The top spot once again goes to the US, with 6,321 requests and a 93 percent rate of full or partial compliance on Google’s part.
The country with the highest number of information requests per capita might surprise you, however — the United Kingdom makes 23 requests per million citizens (the US is slightly lower, at just over 20), and gets compliance 64 percent of the time. In comparison, Canada posted a more restrained 1.18 per million.
China isn't even in the dataset, which is a pretty hilarious and suggestive omission. Not sure what to make of Russia's very low rate of requests (~0.5/million pop.) coupled with Google's 0% compliance rate.

I should make it clear that I do not condone harassment and bullying. Trolling is fine. Annoying, but fine and excessive use of it should result in a ban where possible. Harassment and bullying are different and need to be taken seriously. I won't go into too detail here, but I feel parents and how they bring up their children are the most important factors.

One of the greatest trolls that ever lived, even before trolls existed.
