Couple of points,

I'm guessing you aren't on the likes of FB, Twitter, etc Ffidel?

It can be mightily un-pleasant place unfortunately, some are equipped to deal with it, some aren't. Players obviously are, it goes with the turf.

The abuse was a direct reaction to comments made by an employee of the region, I'm really sorry but I don't see that representing innocence, un-wise commentary with an un-forecasted outcome perhaps, but not innocence.

I guess you'd have to be on the end of some of it to really understand how sour these things can go.

As for other judging people' actions, really?
We've got dozens, possibly hundreds of die hard life long Scarlets fans that won't come to support the club because we changed address, or don't serve the right beer, or, and this is the best one of all, we aren't playing well.

Come on now, lets not be overtly judgmental about people abused on line, offered violence etc, and as a result of comments made to them and deciding not to visit the club again.







Therein lies the difficulty certainly in my understanding because FB & Twitter are foreign to me so I cannot successfully put myself in the receivers' positions. Certainly personal abuse & threats of violence are outrageous and its a great shame that the perpertrators cannot be made to account for their actions.

Then I'd suggest lock the thread.

I don't agree with anyone getting abuse via social media and I don'y really understand noseybook and twa tter but surely these people can be blocked from said recipients accounts?and judged by some posts I can see this thread being used as a stick to beat pivac with,if some morons are dull enough to believe the comments are aimed at scott and aled then they are probably too thick to reason with anyway.

3. Fans abusing the player and family/friends -Pathetic conduct  and totallly and utterly unacceptable! We don't need them.

That seems a pretty good summary.

I don't use the social media in question, but anyone who abuses players, or their families, is definitely beyond the pale. Criticism of how they play (within reason, of course) is another matter. It seems definitely time to lock this unproductive thread, as Wil suggested.

I'd agree with most of that, and of course posts were reported and posters blocked...although one person reincarnated themselves half a dozen times...such is the way of it.

My first post is clear about what I thought on the event, not the intention to cause harm, and borne out of some frustration, nevertheless perhaps a little un-wise.

I, too, have not read the malicious posts on social media. 

To look on the bright side here, we can truly claim to be applying that tenet of Nietzsche's, which goes:

"Wisdom sets limits even to knowledge" (in other words, there are some things it's better NOT to know). For one's sanity, I think there's a lot of truth in that!
