Thanks for bringing the thread back on subject . I just had a quick read of Clare's speech, which I found to be quite fair and not authoritarian in any way . Hopefully there is some reconciliation going on between the Galway bard and his former party ? I will respond to Ms Daly's speech later , but would like to add what I hope will be seen as a constructive comment on the other matter raised on this thread .
Websites will be legally obliged to provide victims with the identity of people who post abusive and defamatory online messages about them under plans outlined by the UK Government yesterday .
According to Sky News today , the plan would see internet service providers given greater protection from being sued if they help to identify trolls. As the law in both the UK and Ireland stands at the moment, website operators are liable for defamatory material that appears on their sites - even when they disagree with the content.
UK Justice Secretary , Ken Clarke said when introducing the UK anti- trolling plan yesterday ,
"Our proposed approach will mean that website operators have a defence against libel as long as they comply with a procedure to help identify the authors of allegedly defamatory material."
If an anti-trolling law was in operation in Ireland , it could be the way to deal with indymedia's resident troll .

I posted a comment here yesterday . It was deleted by editors with the reason "troll" . A few minutes ago I attempted to post it again . It was taken down within seconds . Why ?
here it is again .
To me he seems a former leftist who has now become a "contrarian " and is trying to fill Christopher Hitchens' shoes . But in fairness to Higgins, wageslave. When the indymedia editorial board writes comments here about other site users accusing them ,without any evidence whatsoever , of being "perverts" and "mossad agents" , what do you expect ? There is no way that people can defend their reputations from lies told about them on this site other than by appealing to the editors . When the lies are being told by the editors themselves , this can only help justify the type of legal action Higgins initiated, surely?
According to the indymedia editorial board I am "an agent provocateur ", a"pervert" , a "stalker" a paid Israeli secret service agent . I opposed indymedia editors posting crude anti-christian images to coincide with Christmas and their picture of a crucified Jesus Christ on Good Friday , which had captions attached that pointed at Jesus saying "Cum Here" . My opposition to their filth makes me ,according to the indymedia ireland editorial board , a " shill for the Vatican ". I'm supposed to be a stalker and a pervert because I pointed out -with plenty of evidence - the fact that the leader of an anti-war group called HOPI works for the BAe funded Aerospace Engineering department at Glasgow University . I put up a post last year that showed how a Libyan living in Ireland who has very close connections to the steering committee of the Irish Anti-War Movement is a CIA operative and that he had been in receipt of hundreds of thousands of euros from American intelligence agencies . This exposure of Mahdi al Harati made me a "mossad agent " according to the editorial board.
These editors call me a pervert , and a Mossad agent because of the mention of the HOPI groups associations with the arms giant BAe. Editors on this site who are members of HOPI always censor this information while other Indymedias such as Indymedia UK allow the comment to stand . The editorial board at Indymedia Ireland says that, by raising the matter of Hopis involvement with BAe , I am a pervert who is stalking Yassamine Mather , the head of HOPI referred to in the post . Editors say that I am a paid informer working on behalf of Israeli intelligence services to destroy the Indymedia Ireland site .Since the site archives and editorial lists have been put out of bounds by the editorial board - for three months now individual editors have been able to hide comments of mine giving Zionist "pervert" etc as the excuse . Editors have demanded I identify myself despite the fact that posters are allwed anonymnity and despite the fact that editors themselves are mostly unknown to anybody other than themselves . I have written on a number of occasions to say that I am willing to answer any allegations made against me publicly . The anonymous editorial board will not even allow this offer of mine to appear on the site .
Once again I make the offer . I am willing to publicly answer the lying allegations of stalking Ms Mather's that are being levelled against me by her supporters on this site . These supporters include the same editorial board members that suppressed information coming to the site last year about the role western intelligence services played in setting up the Libyan National Council wageslave, pat corcoran, etc . I attempted to post this evidence several times here .These are the same editors who suppressed articles about the CIA funding of Mahdi-al Harati and his involvement with the IAWM that I posted here. The same editors who have been spamming the site with Islamophobia and recently with anti- christian sectarianism .The same editors that , shortly before the story of the police infiltrator Mark Kennedy/Stone broke, blocked the appearance of important information coming from the UK about police infiltration of the indymedia network . As part of the investigation into that infiltration it was revealed that police officers had been offering thousands of pounds to indymedia moderators who agreed to work with them .
