Monday the Daily Mirror is reporting "Jeremy Corbyn's advice to Labour MPs receiving online abuse: 'Ignore it'."
The Mirror claims that Corbyn has said he receives more abuse than anyone but has denied the level of abuse is being ramped up during the leadership election race 2016 and is now worse than ever.
Whether the Mirror report is insinuating Corbyn and or his supporters are responsible is not clear.
If you use social media, or as it ought to be renamed sometimes anti-social media, sooner or later you will experience nastiness.
It could be vile, spiteful, dangerous, silly and more.
In some cases it should be reported to Twitter or even the police but the extent and level of abuse is relevant.
Jess Philips has previously bragged online and in the mainstream media that as a new MP she told Diane Abbot MP to f**k off. She has since apologised but once said words cannot be unsaid. If you can dish it out expect a reaction, and probably an unpleasant one.
The murder of MP Jo Cox in June was a lesson to us all. Hate can sometimes spill over into the real world with terrible consequences.
But those who cry foul when it is non-existent or exaggerated belittle those with genuine concerns.
And people like Jess Philips, happy to tweet a vile Dan Hodges Daily Mail piece about "Kill Vampire Corbyn", undermine any real issues.
Philips has had some terrible abuse thrown at her online which is wrong but so have many others.
Sometimes abuse comes out of nowhere and the mute or block button will need rapid use. Contacting the site support may also be necessary including filing a report.
But those using unspecified online abuse to undermine the Labour leadership election are playing a silly and potentially dangerous game.
And the Daily Mirror spinning yet another story with Corbyn as the villain of the piece does not add up:
Several MPs and party figures have been forced to increase security at their homes in recent months after being sent threatening messages.
Jess Philips a Labour Birmingham MP said via Twitter social media, July 28, "Locksmith spending 6hrs to make my home safe. Think about how my kids feel next time you mock."
But why publicise that with an image of her home?
Perhaps this is what Corbyn meant by "ignore"?
Supporters of Mr Corbyn have been called a fan club, rabble, dogs, Trotskyites and Nazi Stormtroopers by some with links to the right wing of the Labour Party but that seems to be accepted as OK.
As you sow you tend to reap.
Except in the case of Corbyn.
Jeremy Corbyn does not do personal attacks but is verbally attacked time and time again.
The Mirror Monday spins a tale of nothing into something and manages to attack Corbyn yet again.
Isn't that abuse?
