Liam Stacey wrote vile things. But do you know why he went to jail? "All the TV and newspaper reporters, columnists and opiners quoted his first tweet ("LOL f*** Muamba. He's dead. #Haha" – Stacey didn't use asterisks) and referred vaguely to "racist tweets" after that. But what were they? Did the reporters know but choose delicately not to repeat them? Or did they not know? Do the columnists who applaud the sentence know? Or have they – as I suspect – just seen the bowdlerised media, like the rest of us, and are satisfied with the hazy summary? What terrifies me is that people are nodding happily all over the country, pleased to see a clampdown on internet trolling at last...Anyone who's pleased to see a person jailed for a piece of writing, without bothering to seek out the precise words that were deemed illegal, should be ashamed of themselves." #liam #stacey #news #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #media #democracy #politics #troll #outrage #blind #web #social #twitter #vulgar #uk #pub

The reddit discussion thread with over 1000 comments relating to The Guardian's decent, but still pandering or conservative article about Liam Stacey. Ridiculous that this guy is going to jail in a first world country like the UK. #politics #reddit #outrage #discussion #debate #social #media #twitter #news #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #democracy #failure #blind #troll #web #vulgar #uk #pub

As the subtitle says, "C'mon, we all know you're not really going to delete it.". Or at least almost all these people will move on to another ethically identical product or come back to Instagram in the future. Finally, these people are posting this on Twitter...LOL. And how many have a Facebook account they use more than once a month? of these people #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #society #outrage #hypocrisy #social #media #twitter #attention #whores #ethics #web2.0 #Facebook #instagram #pub
