|Notorious Troll A. Smith|
His main targets of 'Trolling', or purposely annoying, have started a petition to get Smith banned from Facebook. Victim of the malicious bullying Bree Ashton stated 'I can't believe he does it. It really hurts my feelings and other peoples too. You can only wonder what caused it; like he got molested as a child or something.'
A police statement released today specified that investigations are being made into the possibility of sexual abuse of Smith, and the possibility of him sexually abusing minors as a consequence.
Teacher at Smith's school and leading anti-Facebook activist, Mr. S. Geoghegan made an address to the students warning against the use of Facebook. While long winded, the speech emphasized that Facebook seemed to bring out the worst in people. Throughout the address a simile was used likening Facebook to the sewers underneath Paris. 'It's a whole new world in which you can dwell, but if you wish to traverse this world you need to be prepared to have to wade through filth.'
Student counselor Ann Keilson says 'This is really just an example of how social networking sites such as Facebook can be used to target and bully individuals.With campaigns such as Fear Stops Here beginning here and overseas, we really hope to see a reduction in the amount of bullying cases online. We hope to give people the skills to deal with internet Bullies.'
When questioned by reporter Liam Breen about the reasons for his constant trolling, Smith stated that 'It's like an addiction for me, I do it for the lolz, and it's like a rush; sometimes I do it twice on Sundays.'
