    Default The BBC (Big Brother Corporation)

    It seems that if you say something the BBC deems "objectionable" on one of their websites, they will now contact your employer!

    The policy is HERE.
    "9. Offensive or inappropriate content on BBC websites

    If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to BBC websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any BBC service, the BBC may use your personal information to stop such behaviour.

    Where the BBC reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), the BBC may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, school email/internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour."

    Who decides what is "offensive"?
    How do they go about finding out details of your employer?
    What about self employed people?

    There is a whole generation of idiots now who grew up in the Nu-Lab years and thus have been educated to believe that anything other than an approved, officially sanctioned opinion is "offensive". This is why you have universities creating "safe spaces" where nobody is allowed to express a viewpoint not previously approved by the university itself.

    Welcome to 1984.

    Maybe if the persons concerned are posting at work while the boss isn't looking, hey? The IP address is traced to the employer.

    It's not the job of the BBC to police that.

    Well it depends on how you look at it.

    The answer to your question "who decides what is offensive?" is in your own link.

    "Where the BBC reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws ..."

    I reckon it's time for people to stop thinking that they can hide behind the anonymity of the Internet to break laws about defamation, incitement to racial or religious hatred, incitement to violence etc.
