HealthUnlocked are aware that there is currently a serious issue with cyberbullying and trolling in the Thyroid UK Community on HealthUnlocked.
Cyberbullying and trolling can be a serious criminal offence (Protection from Harassment Act 1997, Malicious Communications Act 1988) and we take allegations of cyberbullying and trolling very seriously.
We will actively cooperate with the police in cases where it is alleged that criminal offences have been committed by the posting of messages on HealthUnlocked.
This includes providing evidence that may support a prosecution and result in a conviction, which may carry a prison sentence.
In addition to banning and blocking trolls, we are also improving our technology to help detect cyberbullying, and are working to improve our processes on how we deal with users who commit these offences.
Help us to defeat the trolls by reporting abuse as soon as possible. To learn how to report abuse please read the following: support.healthunlocked.com/...
