Thanks to the selfish narrow minded trolls on all formats inc. PSN. Our beloved powers that be have finally decided to act.
On the face of it, forcing the website owners, internet providers etc etc to give the relevant info to them, allowing them to track down & publicly name, shame & prosicute sounds freekin wonderful (well it did @ 1st to me anyway). Then it occured to me, why has it taken so long to get to this point (usual beuracracy aside). Like the anti terrorism law we had passed a few years ago (stealthy passed & only announcment of its imminent introdution was on early hrs news only 1am-5am) they did this announcement the same way.
That ladies, gentleman, boys, girls & trolls means that alongside the anti terrorism law its yet another nail in the coffin of "FREEDOM OF SPEECH!"
Congratulations ducky "ED_iots" like you guys deserve everything your future world holds, glad. l'm just a boring "OLD" fart whos had a great life in a world free of the "we are watching (& now listening) to your every move" & if the proverbial did hit the fan,... l/we only had 4 mins to live & stress about it.They said my time was MAD thats :-Mutually Assured Destruction (for the benefit of our yonger viewers). Personally l think living in a mad world was far more sane than the paranoid world of faceless nobody's today. So folks welcome to "PARANOIA" that modern English for old "EUTOPIA"

It probably announced new laws on Trolls.
There's a fine line between 'Freedom of Speech' and people thinking they can vent their spleen about anything with no respect for anyone.
The UK always has had freedom of speech, but hand-in-hand with that, has the most draconian libel and slander laws of any 1st world country. Yet the vast majority of individuals and the public press continue on largely unfettered.
In my opinion, the currently accepted definition of 'Freedom of Speech' needs to be closely looked at, and , thanks to events such as the ongiong Leveson enquiry, this seems to be happening, albeit at a very limited level.
Spend a few weeks in mainland China, or even in the good old American Empire, and you'll soon come to the conclusion that, in the UK, freedom of speech is a very healthy concept (although I'm guessing this view would be an anathema to you).
