    On balance, I think you need to really consider carefully what it is you are wanting to say. I find it a bit odd that I have to say this to you, because I thought overall you were a reasonably decent person.
    I find saying that a "good proportion" of DM readership have white supremist sympathies based on downvotes that can "tricked" is disgusting. That was why I mentioned about downvoting being easy to trick.

    That fact you question my decency because I refused to judge a "good proportion" of DM readership as white supremacist sympathiser based on downvotes that are easily tricked is very sad Nat. Very sad.

    Every experiment with that approach quickly ended in societal collapse.

    Onus is on the one who made the assertion; I'll provide one for my own assertion when the time's right.

    I agree. The DM is arguably a place where a large number of people with white supremacist sympathies hang out, but they are small in number compared to the mainstream gammon and celebrity gossip readership. Having said that, the Mail might be wise to look at how it moderates or disables voting features on articles about actual people being actually murdered.

    I do not know what sort of a contractor you are but if you are in the IT sector, you should know that there is a market of fake votes, reviews, friends etc. on the internet. Not to say that these definitely are fake (how would I know) but can be - sure.

    "radicalisation" does not create terrorists, it merely redirects the anger that is already present in the person towards the aims. i.e. if they hadn't been radicalised they would likely have got up to some other mischief.
    On the whole I feel that if people have greivences about things it is better to let them get those out of their system rather than bottle them up.

    That presupposes that the person already holds strong views about something.

    Radicalisation is more insidious than that. At it’s worst, it takes a “blank canvas” and slowly indoctrinates views that the person might not otherwise hold, until eventually they believe that those are their views. At that point the indoctrination becomes more and more extreme, until the person feels that they are under attack and have to act.

    There’s a difference between holding strong views on something, having a genuine grievance about something, and radicalisation.

    That's true. But it doesn't explain motivation (or the lack of it). In order to get someone to commit a terrorist act, they have to be highly motivated, and for motivation you generally need a lot of emotion such as fear, greed, or anger, or a history of those emotions. These can't be manufactured, they can only be harnessed if already present for some reason.

    All you need to do is check one of Tommy Robinson vids on YouTube. Plenty of terrorist Nazi supporters that love the DM. Plenty of people in the uk support his horrid views and it was the terrorist from NZ that listened to Tommy and acted out on his words. Plus horrid comments on what happened on that day from these same people with these horrid views

    Small detail which you missed - he was from Australia. I'm not a fan but you are an idiot too by the sound of it.
