This is related to a couple of other threads about online bullying and free speech.
The following prosecutions caught my eye on the BBC website:
For those who don't like links, they're about people who have been prosecuted for making cruel/threatening tweets.
I've been concerned for some time about the 'freedom' of the internet for people to be cruel and threatening, the rise in online bullying and some of the language which is used, sometimes making death threats.
Some people will claim that bullying can only be physical and face-to-face. I disagree and think people should be prosecuted.
Interested in other people's opinions.
