The EBF Blog is just over a week old and already it has attracted at least one very dedicated biffer troll. We see this as encouraging, oddly enough. It shows that the Biffers are aware of the damage we’re doing to their arguments and are investing quite a lot of their time trying to damage us.
They’ll fail, of course because the truth is way more convincing than multiple false accounts claiming expertise they don’t have in mock discussions with themselves.
Never the less trolls are tiresome so please don’t feed them. We’ve planned a series of separate posts debunking the troll’s lies (over a dozen are in the pipeline) by way of a measured response. But engaging directly with attention-seeking biffer trolls is probably not productive.
ive rights. However we will remove comments which are intended merely to insult other commenters or to ‘out’ people unrelated to Britain First. We will also remove comments which are unrelated to the topic in question or those which seem to be repetitive and intended only to cause distress. Persistent offenders will be blocked from making further comments on our blog.
Unfortunately, removing these posts (however reluctantly) also leaves the comments of those who respond to them out of place. This leaves them open to misunderstandings. We hope that posters will understand if their replies to such trolls are also removed.
This is not an attack on freedom of speech. Anyone has a right to start their own blog and make all kinds of points not related to EBF and its mission. It’s just that EBF isn’t intended to play host to spammers, trolls and flamers. If you want to engage in petty vendettas that’s fine but please don’t do it here.
Please people, don’t feed the troll.
