Is the rubric based on topical issues? That is debatable, but at best Fake News & Trolls are an irritant and a nuisance. But hey they can be very harmful and dangerous too.

Like a fake news release in Thailand recently stating that 16 Thai Airlines had suspended flights due to safety issues! This was not only disinformation it was also dangerous news causing folks to worry, then to only find out there are not even 16 Thai Airline companies. The reality is that there are 10 Thai Airline companies all are safe, with all flights running as scheduled. But the reality is that many people were subjected to anxiety – stress – inconvenience – having to change plans et al, all because some jerk posted fake news that went viral…

What can be done to stop Fake News & Trolls? That has to be answered simply as very little, as most folks who get involved in this nonsense have in fact an agenda… So as much as it is disliked and all the problems that are caused by telling lies and disparaging – ridiculing people and events – Fake News & Trolls – is here to stay!

Just like the featured image

Do not come Oldham Hospital I’m locked inside… man outside with gun.

That is outrageous and should be a crime – what happened if accident patients were not attended to – ladies ready for child birth were not cared for at Oldham Hospital – medical emergencies – sudden illness anything and everything medical could be disrupted and delayed because of such asinine fake news by some deranged troll!

Today’s world is one hell of a complex place to live in! Is there any wonder why folks are dropping out of the so called mainstream style of living and looking for a less materialistic – happier – healthier way to have stress free lifestyle.
