Circumcision is a crime. Unless it's done with claws removed from a house cat.

You know why it's called Atheism?

Because when you see it you turn 360 degrees and walk away.

How about instead of the hammer and nail solution they're proposing; try introducing education programs in schools on the topic of dealing with online trolls. Improve peoples critical thinking skills, disarm the trolls, make the world a better place.

They've already arrested several people for just insulting others online. No such thing as "free speech" in the UK.

Anyone with an opinion about anything is a potential troll. The term is overused and more often than not used by an opposing side in an argument in an attempt to shut down and delegitimize their opponents' point of view.

So I guess in an extreme example if I disagree with someone I get to have them arrested because they are "upsetting me." Since I'm "upset" that means clearly I'm the victim of trolling.

Since British cops seem to get their arses kicked in the street by the lager louts, I guess they want to prove their manliness against pencil-wristed keyboard commandos.

libtards, cons, rape culture, slut shamers, tipping 7% is fair, tipping less than 25% is unfair, aborted fetuses, ATM machine, occupy wall street, ban all guns to reduce gun violence to zero, marijuana is a gateway drug, marijuana cures cancer and AIDS, the war on drugs has been remarkably successful, Rush Limbaugh is great, Michael Moore is a genius, Jersey Shore is good television, Farbongo falsified employment numbers, Obummer controls gas prices, Bush is to blame for 9-11 and the recession, Higher taxes for the top 2% is fair, entitlement programs are socialism, government run healthcare is a necessity, bootstraps, fundamentalist Christians, Atheists, gay marriage destroys the sanctity of marriage, Bud Light is the best beer, Yankees suck, Red Sox suck, Patriots suck, Giants suck.

They don't want to argue, that's why they have multi-megabyte ignore lists, the "ignore even the mention of this user's name" and "reverse ignore" options, etc.

You're forgetting that they also insist on telling you about how long their list is shortly before they add you to it.

Also the "Fark Libs" have hardly cornered the market on ridiculous pretense anyway.
