Perhaps they should publish a freephone number so people can nominate offenders anonymously Smile

Ha Ha, this site (and the Beeb board before) suffered from a few 'insensitive' trolls, maybe they were all one and the same, we'll never know.

Of course Asperger's is mentioned in the troll's 'defence' and the ones we've experienced here certainly showed the symptom usually described as "engaging in a one-sided, long-winded speech about a favorite topic, while misunderstanding or not recognising others' feelings or reactions".

I've never accepted Asperger's as an excuse for highly offensive behaviour, maybe there's some on here who do. I liken their behaviour to that of a vandal who will go out and rip up new tree plantings, or smash a new phone box, or scratch up a neighbour's new car, smash up a gravestone, set fire to a mobility scooter. They do it anonymously just to hurt others.

It could be caused by troubled childhood and upbringing. These people could have experienced parents hitting eachother etc? These people should learn how to control themselves, or see someone about there condition. That maybe too late for some. We do all understand some just enjoy causing mayhem, because they get a kick out of others arguing with them. Other forum members must learn to step back, and leave them to there own little world. Now back to the real world Laughing
