BBC Radio 5 live presenter Richard Bacon has revealed that he has suffered two years of anonymous abuse directed at him, his wife and his baby son.

Bacon has complained to the police, and tried to track down his abuser for a BBC Three documentary on abusive "trolls": The Anti-Social Network.

He said he wanted to know how criticism of his work "could go to contacting my family and tweeting about my baby".

He said it was time to stand up to trolls and highlight internet bullying.

"You have got to try and work out where critical comment crosses over into harassment," he said.

"Under freedom of speech people can criticise you and slag you off, it's their right to do that."

But he added that it can become "deeply personal, obsessive and weird."

Bacon, 36, said the line had been crossed when criticism about his radio show turned into abuse about his wife, his mother and five-month-old son Arthur.

Funny you should mention love dislith, those that require the most love rejected the love that the LORD sent and he is not happy about it.

Trolling is the last resort of the low self esteem and is becoming a problem.
The thing that bothers me is is this trolling being deliberately done by government agents? With the sole intention to get the public reviled and they then request something must be done about it, solution and desired outcome tptb want, more control of the internet.
