Troll Hunters – new Swedish TV series – please do something similar, rest of the world.

I love a good TV series and the other day I watched a new Swedish series called Troll Hunters or Trolljägarna in Swedish. Robert Ashberg, a Swedish TV journalist with a lot of authority, is looking into cases in which people have been harassed online.

If you are from the UK you might be familiar with the TV series Watchdog. This was similar, but it revealed the identity of the creeps who hide behind their usernames and write insulting comments in blogs and other online forums. This kind of TV and awareness campaign is needed in more countries. Pestering other people about their lives while hiding behind a screen should be a criminal offence.

What’s your thoughts? Please comment.
