In the early days of the internet, discussion forums and the like were populated by anonymous trolls who took great pride in shoving their intellect (or distinct lack thereof) down other people’s throats – secure in the tenuous knowledge that their true identities would NOT be easily found out. I admit – it was quite a lot of fun engaging with these creatures of the night as they snuck in and posted inflammatory / racist / derogatory comments and then slipped away to admire their flabby, pasty, hairy, stinky man boobs in a handheld mirror …….
But I digress.
These days it is very difficult to find a space in which to have a good old criminal rant without someone finding out just who you are – Google, for one, tracks your every move, hungry to make a few measly cents out of your online habits – yes they make money out of you surfing those dodge sites as well!
A little closer to home though is the Help save Richmond Hill web site – https://sites.google.com/site/helpsaverichmondhill/ – built by an old school troll using the user name Charles DuGaul. It would appear that the ‘Little Frenchman from Gaul’ is not too happy with the Richmond Hill Special Rates Area and has taken this opportunity to vent.
The opening paragraph on the Help Save Richmond Hill site reads: “Proudly endorsed by the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality (NMMM) and Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA), the Richmond Hill Special Rates Area is proud to be the first baddie free part of the new South Africa. Our new committee, elected by only 25 old white residents, ensures that at least in this small part of South Africa, White Minority rule is still able to exist. Which just goes to show how special this area is.”
