Sad. While it was a bad mistake to make, it’s still a pity that the internet can make a mistake like this career and life ending.

 

It’s not a single mistake. She’d a history of some pretty nasty racist internet postings. Describing people who abhor racism as internet trolls as one story I read did isn’t entirely helpful. 

But im not sure it’s the internet that’s to blame. She was clearly not a well person. 

I think she was a pretty unique character and not a well person.

This may have been a big factor, but the life she led that put her there was a bigger one.

 

Indeed.

But if the alleged trolling was causing her grief, surely the answer would be to make all your social media accounts private (or delete them)?

It is hard to see what alternative she had. Presumably she couldn't work again, either literally or in terms of attracting clients. Probably lost loads of friends. Not a very supportive family setup. What else was left.

Can't believe the internet was more than a horrible icing on the cake.

_______________________________________________________________________

given the prevelance of social media and how people use it, I don't think this is really an option, it's like saying "if you're getting bags of flaming shit pushed through your letter box then consider bricking up your door"

 

I have nothing to do with facebook, bebo, friends reunited, Instagram, snapchat, Twitter or anything like that and I seem to survive somehow.

Tarquin you tedious wankpuffin, she was not prosecuted for any anti semitism. So toddle off. 

Clergham,

She specifically said she wasn't paid for her work.

I think "lawyer" is a fairly generic term for her stuff...

I don't know how she lived but I don't think she had a practice.... given her views, I suspect most of her friends are likely to share them.  She had a very obvious public profile already for her friends.

 

you don't just work for money, though, do you

she had status and she lost it, which is traumatic for some people

 

Genuine LOL @ "Friends Reunited"

Who says Strutter doesn't have a sense of humour?

Bernstein, regarding the non-prosecution of the brain dead gay hater, to be fair the story you linked to did state "the victim did not want to press charges."

I will say that the alcoholism likely had a bigger impact on her “decision” than social media.  

Friends Reunited was switched off at least five years ago. Or divorce central as it was known.

Anyway, nothing to do with social media. The woman was clearly deranged.

Like I said, I don’t do any of this stuff, so my knowledge of the subject is limited
