Haters come out to troll

#1  Postby Made of Stars » Sep 07, 2012 10:51 am

Scanning this very website a couple of days ago, I stumbled across an article with an eye-catching headline: "Jessica Biel's fatal fear". Curiosity piqued, I clicked through to discover that her fatal fear was nothing more than the awareness of her own mortality, something that apparently didn't really strike Jess until age 30. It's hardly earth-shattering stuff, though I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who want to know what the future Mrs Timberlake worries about.

Far more alarming to me than Biel's phobias though were the comments below the piece.

"Just goes to show you how little is trickling through her brain if she had never bothered to think about her existence until 30," said one.

"Hasn't got two brain cells to rub together. What a bonehead bimbo. Typical of narcissistic actors. Rare to find one with anything profound to say," said another.

Um, hang on a minute...

Nice summary statement:

But sheer vitriol such as that directed at Jessica or Charlotte or anyone else has the power to hurt and harm, and says more about the issues of the (almost always anonymous) perpetrator than it ever possibly could about the person it's directed at.

What an absolute retard of a thread. The person that started it has obviously got nothing between his ears and just looking to get his post count up. Jeeesh.

Ooops, sorry ... don't quite know what happened there.

I care deeply about J. Biel's mortality as well. :plan:

Enjoy while you still can. :angel:

I don't know who Jessica Biel is, but in regards to humans being nasty shits when their face and name are hidden--I'm so shocked.
And because it happens on the internet it is OK, so get over it.

Will you stop pointing that fucking pistol at me, GS?! It's causing me a 'fatal fear', FFS.

Who oils themselves up at the beach? She'll come away looking like a Findus crispy pancake. :nono:
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

New article on this from the SMH, including this:

Section 474.17 of the Commonwealth Criminal Code Act creates an offence, punishable by imprisonment for three years, of using a carriage service – and, yes, the internet counts, provided a reasonable person would consider it “menacing, harassing or offensive”.
