An extra post today I have spent a day watching sport with the monster. His favourite event today…the diving. The British pair of Tom Daley and Pete Waterfield came fourth the worst place for any athelete to finish. Daley put his hand up taking responsibility for the one poor dive which may have cost them a medal. They tried their best, tom made one small error and what happened….this
While Tom Daley makes me proud to be British, trolls like this make me ashamed. What has this troll done with his life that he thinks he has the right to comment on anyones performance? Has he spent hours training everyday for years to be deemed worthy of representing his country?
These sportsman are not the ones earning huge wages for a few hours kicking a ball about on a weekend. The are the ones who wear their team uniforms for pride and deserve our support, win or lose. The trolls are the people who society could do without, they are the ones whose parents should hang their heads in shame at their offspring.
As you can tell this has wound me up just a little bit. Trolls are cropping up wherever social media exists, Twitter, Facebook even here on WordPress, yes we should try to ignore them not give them the attention they crave but I would ask everyone who knows a troll or worse still is related to one do the rest of us a favour and knock some sense into them. Teach them that old saying If you have nothing nice to say don’t say anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
