Unlike those vile trolls, Catherine Deveny and Mungo MacCallum are a picture of civility
Just as well The Age and
the ABC don’t give oxygen
to people who seek attention
Catherine Deveny in The Sunday
. Enter the
troll. Small pathetic little people hell-bent on getting attention by slagging off, sledging or just being boring.
Hate-filled abusive messages driven by envy and relevance-deprivation is their game. Generally men, generally anonymous, generally misogynist.
I WISH him arse cancer.

Deveny tweets on April 24, 2010:
ANZAC Day. Men only enlisted to fight for the money, for the adventure or because they were racist … Anzac Day IS a glorification of war. They
didn’t die for us but because they were risk taking testosterone fuelled men with a pack mentality … Anzac Day. I abhor people whose self-esteem is fuelled by nationalism approved misogyny, homophobia, racism or cruelty administered by relos … Live yourown life. Make your own mark. Stop feeling big because your dead relative killed people because they knew no better … Anzac Day. F .. k repect (sic). Respect is just code for “support our selective narrative used to prop up our power that we use to oppress”.

ONE ofthe problems is that we are becoming a less civil society. There’re all sorts of reasons for this. One is the great attacks on what used to be called political correctness. “Go on; let it all hang out if you think somebody’s a bastard, tell ’em. Don’t be politically correct about it.” You know, in other words, don’t be polite. Don’t be decent. Don’t be civilised. Be as rude as you want to be about everybody you don’t like.
