Submission + - Racist troll gets three years prison.

Vainglorious Coward writes: "A man has been sentenced to three years prison for posting racist taunts to a website. The troll "admitted posting the messages but insisted he was not racist. He told the officers he had intended to stir up an argument on the website but did not believe in what he had written". Pleading guilty to publishing material likely to stir up racial hatred, and to making thirty three indecent photographs of children, his defence noted that he "was isolated and living in a fantasy world, spending hours on his computer in his room".

Three years for six posts!"

The end of labor is to gain leisure.
