    What? Adults can't turn their ****ing computer off, and go outside in the fresh air.

    Moreover, as celebrities (B grade, granted) they are shocked that faceless people might abuse them?

    Seems to me there should be a greater education process by these social media sites. and jesus christ if some dude tweets something to you that you don't like, don't ****ing retweet it.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    So modern Australian logic: the people who have to actually put up with vile bull**** are the pathetic ones.

    Stay classy, everyone.

    Hmm, no thanks. The internet is pervasive and permanent enough as it is without actually forcing people to attach a real name to everything they do.

    Again, love the talk about anonymity on twitter, when you have all the lovely comment hosted on the News Ltd and Fairfax websites.

    it just doesn't seem that weird to me that celebs, who pre-facebook,youtube, twit etc probably used the internet for...heaven knows, but they probably weren't using message boards or w/ever and experiencing/witnessing trolling/flaming and all that sort of stuff, are prone to reacting badly to constant and increasing vile abuse. i mean they're kinda just jumping into the deep end.....like the really deep end.

    well don't write such taste inducing things in future

    spikeys a good point

    Farah retweeted some stuff that a) makes the originator feel big and b) was completely inappropriate for maybe half the population at least to read

    They should make it compulsory on forums for you to have to put up a picture of yourself as your avatar. I for one am for the idea
