Online abuse: 'existing laws too fragmented and don’t serve victims' | UK news | The Guardian
“There are crimes now taking place – the malicious use of intimate photographs for example – which we never would have imagined as an offence when I was a PC in the 80s. It’s not just the nature of it, it is the sheer volume. “The levels of abuse that now take place within the internet are on a level we never really expected. If we did try to deal with all of it we would clearly be swamped.” [...] Earlier in the week, it emerged that the Crown Prosecution Service in England and Wales has turned to Twitter for help as it faces a worrying increase in the use of social media by perpetrators to commit crimes against women and girls, including rape, domestic abuse and blackmail.

Lena Dunham: 'Cancerous' effect of online abuse forced me off Twitter - BBC Newsbeat
Twitter is not a "safe space" for Lena Dunham. The Girls' creator has spoken out about the site again, saying the verbal abuse she receives on there has a "cancerous" effect on her. Now she doesn't even know her password. Someone else tweets for her. She told Re/code Decode podcast: "I really appreciate anybody follows me at all, so I didn't want to cut off my relationship [to Twitter] completely, but it really wasn't a safe space for me." She explained the effect of the abuse by using the example of comments she received on her Instagram account after she posted a picture of herself.

Former Reddit CEO alleges co-founder Alexis Ohanian fired Victoria Taylor, not Pao
via // // yishan - former CEO :: Alexis wasn’t some employee reporting to Pao, he was the Executive Chairman of the Board, i.e. Pao’s boss. He had different ideas for AMAs, he didn’t like Victoria’s role, and decided to fire her. Pao wasn’t able to do anything about it. In this case it shouldn’t have traveled upstream to her, it came from above her. Then when the hate-train started up against Pao, Alexis should have been out front and center saying very clearly “Ellen Pao did not make this decision, I did.” Instead, he just sat back and let her take the heat. That’s a stunning lack of leadership and an incredibly shitty thing to do. I actually asked that he be on the board when I joined; I used to respect Alexis Ohanian. After this, not quite so much. // Alexis Ohanian "It was my decision to change how we work with AMAs and the transition was my failure[.]" &! &! &! Sarah Lacy on Reddit & Digg

Gerichtshof urteilt zu Beleidigungen in Nutzerforen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wenn man im Webforum eines kommerziellen Anbieters beleidigt wird, kann man vom Forenbetreiber Schadensersatz fordern - selbst dann, wenn der die entsprechenden Posts auf Wunsch bereits entfernt hat. Dies entschied am Dienstag der Europäische Gerichtshof für Menschenrechte (EGMR) in Straßburg. [...] Das Gericht betont in einer Mitteilung zu dem Urteil, dass es hier um ein kommerzielles Nachrichtenangebot gehe, und nicht um "andere Foren im Internet, wo von Dritten Kommentare verbreitet werden können, zum Beispiel ein Internetdiskussionsforum, ein Bulletin Board oder eine Social-Media-Plattform". [...] nicht als Einschränkung der Meinungsfreiheit zu werten sei. [...] Betreiber von kommerziellen Nachrichtenangeboten [...] müssen sich nun darauf gefasst machen, für bösartige oder diffamierende Kommentare anonymer Nutzer unter Umständen zur Rechenschaft gezogen zu werden. [...] In DE kann die Polizei bei Verleumdungen oder Beleidigungen verlangen, dass Seitenbetreiber IP-Adresse geben.

In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry | Polygon
the internet brings out the worst in people and society - because it is frictionless. wait 10 year and we hope we died 10 years ago. // ""You don’t really recover from this kind of abuse. You just change." She’s right. Often, I’ll see people lashing out at women they perceive as too bitchy or too confrontational. They don’t understand that we are the sum of our experiences. The toxic environment causes us to change. If people attack you online, you’re going to get defensive quickly. If people sexually harass you, you’re going to grow more inward, and more protective. It’s a very human reaction, and there is no way to face this daily reality without it changing who you are."

BBC News - Twitter boss admits firm is failing victims of trolling
The debate over so-called internet trolls - people who use social media accounts to abuse others - has been attracting headlines for several years now. The daughter of actor Robin Williams signed off Twitter following taunts about her father's suicide. Screenwriter Jane Goldman deleted her account following abuse of her family. And Sara Payne, whose daughter Sarah was abducted and murdered in 2000, said she was leaving the social media network after years of online harassment.

The Supreme Court is about to tackle online threats for the first time | The Verge
The issue before the Supreme Court is whether "a true threat" requires finding that the threatener subjectively intended to be threatening. Elonis is arguing for a subjective intent requirement, claiming that his posts were meant as rap lyrics and not as threats, while the prosecutors are arguing for an "objective" standard—a threat counts as a threat if a "reasonable person" would think the statement is a threat. The government is arguing that it’s enough to use an objective standard, with an exception for "idle or careless talk, exaggeration, something said in a joking manner or an outburst of transitory anger." However, when it comes to the Internet, where context or tone may be more difficult to perceive, this objective standard has obvious drawbacks [...] [UK has] law that forbids electronic messages that are "grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene, or menacing character," [...] "with the intent to intimidate." [...] "[...] most likely to inspire fear of bodily harm."

[...] Her piece argued that the games industry has now ballooned so large that it had outgrown its niche origins, making the concept of the "gamer" a thing of the past. Alexander admitted that change would be difficult for those who still self-identified as a gamer, whose "identity depends on the ageing cultural signposts of a rapidly-evolving, increasingly broad and complex medium," but her message was triumphant.

Canadian researchers conducted two internet studies with over 1,200 people. They gave personality tests to each subject along with a survey about their internet commenting behavior. They were looking for evidence that linked trolling with the Dark Tetrad of personality: narcissism, Machiavellianism, psychopathy, and sadistic personality. They found that Dark Tetrad scores were highest among people who said trolling was their favorite internet activity -

Kathrin Weßling: Ich weiß es nicht. Ich wohne ja im Internet und habe das Gefühl, alles schon gesehen zu haben. Eigentlich kann man sagen, es eskaliert immer dann, wenn es um Emotionen oder Politik geht. [...] Und das ist ja typisch für Trolle, dass sie Frauen wegen Äußerlichkeiten angreifen. Frage: Wie meinen Sie das? Weßling: Die Tendenz ist, dass Frauen für ihr Aussehen, ihre Sexualität beleidigt werden. Dann heißt es: Diese Frau müsste mal wieder „richtig durchgenommen“ werden. Oder: Diese Frau hat ein psychisches Problem. Männern hingegen wird oft Inkompetenz vorgeworfen, Unwissen, schlechte Recherche oder Arroganz. Ich habe bei einem Mann noch nie einen Kommentar gelesen wie: Du bist so hässlich, geh sterben. [...] Das Internet ist ein Spiegel der Menschheit. Es gibt genauso viele Frauen, die voller Neid und Frust kommentieren. Aber ich bin erstaunt, dass viele das nicht einmal anonym tun, sondern mit ihrem Klarnamen bei Facebook.

“I Lied To You A Few Days Ago": The Leak Messaging App And Anonymous Honesty | Fast Company | Business Innovation
[#FNAC] [ A reflection of personal values. And Marc Andreessen had his rant on twitter about it. ] "Leak’s creator, the facilitator of this budding paranoia, is a 25-year-old living in Paris named Laurent Desserrey. He says he wanted to create a “really positive and exciting tool.” A couple of friends helped Desserrey build Leak over a single weekend. It's simple. Users fill out a form with their recipient’s email address, their message, and whether they are a coworker, friend, friend-of-a-friend, family member, or “someone.” The concept was partly inspired by Secret, an app that allows users to post anonymous messages to their friends and friends of friends and fits into a neat trend of apps that allow expression without attribution.

The Future of Pando | Ugly.
The fact is, I’m getting a total pass for something I have repeatedly said was my responsibility, while my female business partner is receiving the full blame. It seems to me that either the person or persons spreading the smears about Pando has decided that a female employer is deserving of abuse and scorn in a way that a male boss isn’t, or they’ve cynically concluded that a female boss presents a much easier target for an Internet hate campaign. [...] In the past 72 hours, I’ve come to truly realize what female founders and CEOs in our industry deal with every day of their lives. That it took me this long to understand is another of my many failings. The ugliness has to stop. [ It is easier, faster to bash the weaker sex. especially if the women on top is not apologetic. it seems. men + anonymity of internet and the non-attachment, non-face-to-face situation, feel the urge to say stuff like X, about Sarah Lacy and the other week about Marissa Mayer, who overslept. ]

There's A Full-On Cyber War On Facebook - Business Insider
"Success Invites - #" - "Running a business on FB is like opening a McDonald's on an active volcano" - Fyk, 40, is a self-made millionaire who’s built his fortune almost entirely on Facebook. It’s a rewarding business but not without its challenges. Not only must he play a constant game of cat and mouse with hackers and digital thieves but he must do so on a field of battle that is constantly shifting because of Facebook’s habit of routinely — and mysteriously — tweaking its algorithm. “It’s legitimately a cyber war,” said Fyk, who describes his archenemies as tech-savvy teens who are motivated by boredom. “I make almost a quarter-million dollars a month, so I have to protect what I’m doing. That means if I have to play their kiddie game, I play. I don’t have a choice.”

Bad news for whistleblowers. Secret is far less secret than you think | PandoDaily
Only DAU thinks Secret or Whisper or any other consumer grade app, on a consumer grade tablet or phone, promising keeping them anonymity, uses these apps to 'blow the whistle.' ahhm troll, hate and gossip or even leak stuff. I thought Silicon Valley ppl are smart. No they just know how to code & design ... "to make the world better" ... sort of. “A court order without probable cause or even a subpoena may be enough for law enforcement or for a civil litigant to demand records.“ Conley went on to say that anonymous app companies need to make sure their backend data practices line up with the advertised purpose of their product: “They need to think through their own process. If you are offering a service that is about providing anonymous communication, then if you are retaining their identity and tying it to their communication, then you are kind of undermining the whole purpose of your service.”

Graham Henry: As we bathe in the glory of International Women's Day remember the plight of transgender people - Graham Henry - Wales Online
If it’s possible to rank, transgender people suffer perhaps the greatest hurdles of all in the great fight for acceptance. While the fights for rights of gay people and women are being fought in the newspaper columns, on our television screens and in the Houses of Parliament, with the baton taken up by politicians and celebrities alike, the demonising of transgender people continues in private among sniggering smartphone users and ignorant fools. Unchallenged, and largely unfashionable.
