By Doing This, the British Government Is Causing Me Online Psychological Harm

Have you figured out by now that I’m almost always on the side of free speech. I am as close to an absolutist on this issue as anyone you are likely to ever meet.

Brits Consider Sending trolls to Jail for 'Psychological Harm' – PJ Media

The British government is currently debating an “Online Safety Bill” that would make it a crime punishable by two years in jail to cause someone “psychological harm” as a result of online “trolling.”

According to The Times, the government will shift the focus from the content of an online message to its effect, creating the crimes of “threatening communications,” “knowingly false communication,” and “pile-ons.”

The new language and crimes will be added to the bill before it’s introduced next month.

According to The Times, “Trolls could face two years in prison for sending messages or posting content that causes psychological harm under legislation targeting online hate.”

Ugh. What kind of candy-a** people are we planning raising in the 21st century?

Snowflakes. Nothing but weak pathetic snowflakes.
