Madeleine McCann's parents Kate and Gerry suffer online abuse on tenth anniversary of her disappearance

Social media criticism of Kate and Gerry McCann, posted on the 10th anniversary of their three-year-old daughter going missing in Praia da Luz, Portugal, has included calls for them to be charged with child neglect, and unsubstantiated allegations that they accidentally killed Madeleine. In apparent references to the fact that Madeleine went missing from the family’s holiday apartment while her mother and father dined at a tapas restaurant 50 yards away, successive twitter users have called the McCanns “vile”, “negligent” parents who “have only themselves to blame”.

Can any good come from engaging with internet trolls?

A: Firstly, let’s settle on a definition of “troll”. A troll is not someone who makes you feel bad.

Academic and TV historian Mary Beard has disclosed her innovative approach to dealing with her vitriolic Twitter trolls – writing them a job reference.

Mary Beard reveals she befriended Twitter trolls following online abuse

The Cambridge University professor, one of the country's foremost classicists who has fought a very public battle about online etiquette after receiving a torrent of abuse on Twitter, said she has taken to befriending her vilifiers. They include the university student Oliver Rawlings, whom she publicly named and shamed in July last year after he sent her an abusive message. Speaking in an interview with the New Yorker magazine, Beard revealed the pair had remained in touch after he took her to lunch to apologise for sending her a tweet that read: "You filthy old slut" followed by a derogatory comment about her genitalia. Beard retweeted it to her 47,000 followers to out her abuser, but said she had now taken to writing job recommendations for Rawlings so he didn't suffer in the long term for "one moment of idiocy". 1 s2.0 S1054139X12004132 main.

EU's right to be forgotten: Guardian articles have been hidden by Google

You see the most important information the target of your search is not trying to hide.

Tim Berners-Lee on the future of the web: 'The system is failing' Sir Tim Berners-Lee’s optimism about the future of the web is starting to wane in the face of a “nasty storm” of issues including the rollback of net neutrality protections, the proliferation of fake news, propaganda and the web’s increasing polarisation.

Tim Berners-Lee on the future of the web: 'The system is failing'

The inventor of the world wide web always maintained his creation was a reflection of humanity – the good, the bad and the ugly. But Berners-Lee’s vision for an “open platform that allows anyone to share information, access opportunities and collaborate across geographical boundaries” has been challenged by increasingly powerful digital gatekeepers whose algorithms can be weaponised by master manipulators. “I’m still an optimist, but an optimist standing at the top of the hill with a nasty storm blowing in my face, hanging on to a fence,” said the British computer scientist. “We have to grit our teeth and hang on to the fence and not take it for granted that the web will lead us to wonderful things,” he said. “The system is failing.
