+ - Bolivia Accuses Austria of kidnapping its President in search for Snowden->

Submitted by Mike Lape
Mike Lape (2905287) writes "The Bolivian President's plane was searched for Snowden in Austria after it had to land there due to France and Portugal both refusing the plane access to their airspace.

The Bolivian plane, which was taking Morales home from an energy conference in Moscow, was stranded at Vienna airport for several hours after Portugal and France refused to allow it to fly through their airspace. The search found that Snowden was not onboard and the plane eventually left Vienna about noon on Wednesday.

The conclusions drawn by the TFA are far from proven, albeit based on some kind of "research" (it is claimed). Arguably, the phenomenon, and the issues it raises are at least an order of maginitude more complex, as comments here have amply demonstrated. "Trolls" may serve a useful social purpose after all, because they may provoke reflection on many levels including: the rightness of one's assumptions, awareness of the trolls' pov/talking points (always useful), the trolls' (possibly hidden) agenda, state of mind/mental health, one's own capacity to be easily provoked to anger by something that ought to be ignored or regarded as merely a source of transitory amusement, a challenge that calls for a witty riposte. The possibilities are almost limitless. I believe the 'success' of trolling as a strategy of discourse is highly overrated by TFA, and ephemeral at best.

If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.
