    A lot of people regarded you as a troll, a witch hunt was conducted and you were
    outed on LU. Are you a troll that deserves to be outed? There were those on
    LU who regard you in much the same way as the clown who made insensitive remarks
    about the death of robbies mum.

    As the victim of a witch hunt, why don't you tell us how hunting down people who
    some people find offensive and brand as trolls, is different to what happened to you.

    Bm trolling was harmless. I could tell he didn't actually live in Sydney or lift weights or was a policeman based on how silly it all was. Cannot really compare the two imo.

    .


    In your opinion it was harmless but he may of deeply offended someone else.

    Who decides when something is offensive enough to warrant police attention?

    Well its easy enough to apply a community standard of what the average person would find offensive. I don't think the average person would find bm lying about being a muscular policeman from coogee all thatoffrnsive. I don't think police action should necessarily be taken either but we cannot think of the internet as a seperate world from reality any more. There can be real world repercussions for it. If this guy gets outed and loses his job or whatever then that's life.

    Still think it's heavy duty trolling? I'm on Farah's side re the comments about his mum which were appalling, but someone needs to talk to him about the old saw about living and dying by the sword. Applies to him as much as anyone. Unless, of course, buying someone a noose for their birthday is considered funny.

    Given our multicultural country i doubt it would be easy to apply a community standard.

    If he said to Robbies face what he tweeted the police could do nothing at all about it so why should it be a crime over the net? Isn't that separating the internet from reality?

    So now Farah's got Pugzley on his side as well. As if he didn't have enough problems.

    Of course you can apply community standards. I also said that there shouldn't be police action but there is also a reason why he is hiding because he could face real world repercussions. If a comedian had said it or some bloke on the street there could be real world consequences.

    So what do you recommend be done about Robbie Fawah suggesting that the Prime Minister hang herself on her birthday?

    Some sort of "real world consequence"?

    A bit-coin penalty?
