  1. the problem is people think that just because its online that people can’t find out who they are and that they are untouchable.

  2. Scott Roberts: This is the second headline you’ve written with the word ‘apologies’ instead of ‘apologises’. Stop it :(

    I forecast a cold day in Hell when our trolls decide to apologise for the crap they post on this site. Don’t worry Keith and Aiden, you will be smiling when it starts raining men!

      One never knows, when they get a knock on the door from Mr Plod.

  4. Another one with gay friends…….I’m not homophobic of course it’s just that when I want to insult someone……………..
    Like many of these people more of a wanker than a homophobe?

      I would have to say I agree.
      Many people just have a spiteful streak and go for people’s weaknesses, whatever they happen to be. One only has to look at the instance of Tom Daley and the loss of his father to demonstrate just how nasty some people will be just for the sheer hell of it.

    2. It kind of begs the question, do the gay couple he’s living with know his views on gay TV presenters?
      They probably do now…

  5. The ‘youth ‘of today eh?

      I think you will find it is spelled “Yoof”.

      1. *shudders* Just had a visual of Janet Street Porter.

  6. Is he apologising because he got caught or because he means it?

    The offender of Tom Daley was cleared, the offender of Sean Batty will maybe punished. Where is logic?

    1. Scottish Law is separate to English and Welsh law. Thats your logic perhaps the CPS will wait until this case has finished before deciding on what the prosecution guidelines should say.

  8. A very unfortunate surname for this fella. Batty by name and by nature.

  9. ““family problems,” and that he “wasn’t really in the right state of mind” to think about was he was doing at the time.”

    THIS is an excuse to behave like a bigot!! Does he troll twitter to just lob abuse at anyone because of his “family problems”!!?? What a wanker!!!

    If I hurled abuse at unsuspecting celebs/personalities every time I have a family problem…I’d have been locked up long ago! Frankly your just a waist of skin in my opinion!
