    Don't you still get the part on the "troll" vs. the real life threatening/stalker/psychopath guy??

    For those who still complain about "freedom of speech" in this, is the same as I complain about my right to hear music at 100000db without regard to my neighbor, my rights are untouched until I piss on the right of the next guy, that's not freedom, that's libertinage.

  3. It always seems that there are a few that fuc* it up for the many, however as time goes on I'm wondering if that phrase 'the few fuc* it up for the many' should be reversed.

    This has the potential to become another 'Dangerous Dogs Act'. That is a Act of Parliament rushed though without thinking of the consequences. Unfortunately there have been too many Acts passed which have been rushed thanks to politicians being pressured by the media
