Not the typical reaction I imagined a troll would have when exposed in real life.

If they host a show about hunting internet trolls, I'd definitely watch it.

I just went looking for him on facebook....couldn't find him. Post a link to his facebook if someone does find him. I'd like to pay back what hes done with the same shit he's been doing.

In real life troll hunting would be most effective with slashed tires and dog poo in their front porch, just saying. Giving them a medium for more trolling is hardly the answer it is just feeding the troll on another level.

Wow, this guy is messed up. Racism isn't an opinion, it's a hate crime.

You sir generalise people who believe in liberalism. this isn't a forum for political bashing of liberalism and conservatism.

[citation][nom]alvine[/nom]Why is this guy so immature?Now post hateful messages on his facebook and let's see how he will feel about that[/citation]

and that's what trolls want. They feed off of any emotional response. If you respond in any way then you're giving them what they want. Hell, it doesn't even need to be negative.

I willing to bet he won't be trolling much anymore since his real name and where he lives has been exposed...Maybe the authorities should investigate these trolls more often and make their real names public like they did in the video. Most of them would get scared and stop pretty quick if they knew they were exposed and anyone could find them. IMO.

I guess from his reaction to the news crew, this guy is a troll in real life too. Hopefully he gets put in his place by authorities or I hate to even say it, the people that he has trolled.

@jl0329 I'd watch it too. lol. Instead of Man Tracker, they could call it Troll Tracker. Then they could have the people being trolled confront the troll in real life. Man I bet it would be some good watching. lol.

Since when is being racist illegal? It's vile, stupid and hurtful, but it's not illegal.

Racism is a hate crime?

While racism may be despicable, the fact you seem to want to criminalize opinions is just as frightening. Guess freedom of thought is something you don't like. You are on a slippery slope with that attitude.

It may not be illegal in personal opinion, but it IS illegal in public and private practice.

It is, making racist comments is an illegal act.

Racism with malice and the intent to do harm or doing harm is illegal.

However, Racism(thought processes behind it) in general is not a crime.

Although it is deplorable and not a virtue.

"the BBC reporter points out that 'people have gone to prison for less'", yep the typical briton attitude about freedom of speech and civilian rights vs morality. I don't support racism and what this guy does is wrong but hate speech in general is valid and people that can't understand this need to keep the hell away from the internet.
The same people that point fingers to this troll will be the type of citizen to organize neighbourhood watches against former sex offenders, pedos and radical islamists to publicly "expose" and lynch them in any way possible... just reading the comments here gives me the creeps
 


LOL FAIL dude you just made a racist remark against brits

but you can try again if you like :hello:

Well I don’t have anything against trolls, if you have the oportunity to speak with them you will see that most of them are very nice, I have some trolls living in my capital city and I can live with them, sometimes they are really annoying but nothing an orc like me cannot handle.

Correct acting on Racism can be illegal. Racism in itself is not illegal. You can hate another race or group as long as you do not act upon that hate you break no laws. Thought is still free...until they figure out how to tax it...

I thought a hate crime was when you react in any way that directly affects someone. That could be in the form of uttering threats, physical violence, severe emotional damage/psycolocical. Just making racists comments in general, or having opinions in general about differences in skin colour/religion/race isn't a hate crime as far as I know. It maybe racist still, but not a crime.

I'm pretty surprised that human's in most civilized nations haven't evolved past the point of racisim yet. It's getting better though. If you look back on what has gone down in history, alot more bad things have happened then what we see today. Maybe in the next 50-100 years it will be pretty much gone. Hopefully....because there is no place for it at all IMO.
