Trolls of Gladstone be gone, gutlessness is ugly

TELL you what online deadbeats of Gladstone, I've had enough of you!

Not all of you, just a select few of you.

Those of you that lurk behind your little aliases on Facebook, particularly prevalent on one open discussion page, spouting vitriol, ignorance and a general lack of intelligence, are a prime example of why a lot of you should have remained as bad ideas in your parents' brains, rather than the real thing.

Seriously, here's some hot tips, get off your computer, get outside, talk to people about the real world, their real lives and real problems.

For something even crazier, try getting a job, some sort of gainful employment, or even wackier, go and help people who need assistance. Unpaid!

Surely there are better ways to spend your days then taking online pot shots between games of Call of Duty?

Last week I saw a certain person/s take things to another level.

While I believe already removed once, a local page dedicated to implementing Sharia Law in Gladstone and inciting racial hatred resurfaced.

The identity of its creator remains unknown, but the IQ of said creator is no mystery, it would have to be somewhere below 20.


It's okay in that pea-sized brain of yours to try and antagonise and provoke ethnic groups to clash?

If you want that give yourself repeated uppercuts, very firm uppercuts.

Gutlessness is an ugly trait, a truly, ugly trait.

Hiding behind your screen and keyboard, a big man online, but pond scum in reality, those of you local trolls need to wake up to yourselves.

There's more to life than trying to see if you can create a localised race war, or worse still, get some poor, innocent kid bashed by impressionable youths who may actually think your message is one of worth.

Go on, throw out the computer and enter the real world, hell you may even surprise yourself and become someone of some benefit to the world.

So why not try and talk with an ethnic person, rather than play the all-too-easy redneck card? Can't hurt, surely?
