Thanks for your comments on the topic of spam. Another topic that has been in the news in the UK recently is the problem of “trolls.” These are people who attack others online, posting horrible messages and sending hate mail. Trolls often attack Facebook pages that have been set up by a family to allow friends of someone who died to post messages. Trolls find these pages and post very unpleasant messages. A few months ago, a footballer called Fabrice Muamba collapsed during a soccer game with a heart attack. A very stupid student at a university in Wales posted derogatory messages about the footballer on Twitter. He was arrested by the police, and he has since been thrown out of his university and sent to prison. Just last week, a woman won a court order forcing Facebook to reveal the identities of a group of people who had ganged up to attack her online. Like everyone, I hate spammers, but at least I can understand why they do what they do. Trolls, however, are a completely different category. They don’t make any money, and they normally have no personal connection to the people they attack. Their only motivation is to hurt and insult people. Anyway, here is some feedback on your comments.

It’s very interesting and funny story!
Remember that even when you have two adjectives like this, “story” still needs “a,” so it should be “a very funny and interesting story.”
