As many of you may recall, before I set off on me hols I'd got myself in all kinds of bother on the Internet. I was grateful that I was away for a couple of weeks, with limited Internet access and no inclination to blog; surely, I thought, everything would die down in my absence.
It seems that some BNP (I'm not linking to them but if you didn't know the BNP is a far-right, racist political group in the UK) supporters took a shine to me, either turned onto my presence by other bloggers or by reading my comments somewhere else.
Hence the comment moderation while I was away, as every day, give or take, they'd try and comment with homophobic, anti-Semitic or just plain nasty little barbs. All the while suggesting that the BNP were "coming for me", which I think can be taken to mean a party of idiots, striving for legitimacy, may attack an innocent citizen for no reason.
Cool. That's one way to win my vote I suppose...
Anyway, I eventually turned comments off all together, which led one of the racists to actually email me, which was great because with this evidence in my sweaty mitt, I could begin the process of getting them into trouble for harassing me. For now, in the face of this, it has fallen silent. I doubt it'll last for long.
All this nonsense reminded me of how hard I laughed when the BNP lost their membership list and the racist bigots were outed all over the shop and then I found these...
Have a nice day!
