re: Even Grandmothers Can Be Online Trolls
Bit sexist blaming grannies!! There were minimal offensive posts. There were a few strongly opinionated people, did Saga expect that the 50 + fraternity lost all their marbles and didn't have strong points of view? It was a site that most enjoyed, making friendships and even romances developed. It provided support for many elderly people who will now, after being given this socialisation lifeline by Saga, have had it ripped away without warning leaving them deeply saddened. Saga have a social responsibility to the forum members from who they have taken away a comfort zone where they could talk through their troubles and socialsie with on line friends, many who met up at *meets* throughout the country. It had become a *community*. This is the positive side, which was the prolific side. One or two trolls!! What a surprise, and nothing to make such a song and dance about.
