I have just black carded someone who took a great deal of touble to create false profile using the name of DUP Councillor, Sammy Brush on Slugger. This is not Sammy, and I aim to find out who is was who took such pains to use our commenting facility to falsify his opinion…
I will be taking appropriate action.
Please note too that I am also red carding commenter Christy Walsh, who, perhaps innocently, is randomly replicating the false comments all over Slugger’s back thread.. (contact me Christy if you want that lifted email@example.com…)
Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
