"The internet has become a place where people with zero confidence and no spine can posture a bit by sticking their chest out and babbling like a gorilla."
I know this subject is quite close to Tom's heart and we have all seen it.
Is it affecting the internet in a bad way or has it come to be an accepted thing? Why should the abuse and pure hate that is dished out on forums, blogs, etc. be accepted just because there is a semblance of anonymity? If, as an offender, you meet the person you dish the shit to on a forum in real life, would you stand by the statements you make?
Will slander and libel laws catch up with the internet? Or is the global aspect be too much for the law to handle?
