The demons move in on comment threads. It’s their big idea to silence the internet.
TAP – I spend a significant part of each day deleting comments written to lower the tone of the discussions going on on this blog. They tend to start at about 9 am and are less frequent in the evening.
They are a little cunning, as they make out they are agreeing with the sentiments of the people writing on the blog, but give them a racist, homophobic or simply a vicious twist.
Their style is pretty much the same every day. Naturally I just delete them. They appear to be a paid-for campaign, which is the kind of thing we have been warned to expect.
