I really like this lovely small gem of common sense, uncommon in this century of propaganda and threat exaggeration:
"That is, if the conduct complained of would not amount to an offence if it occurred off-line, then it is not an offence simply because in a particular instance it was undertaken with the aid of digital technology." "For example, complaints have been received about comments posted on Facebook which are abusive or harassing. If this behavior occurred in a public place it would not be a reportable offence," said Acting Inspector Luke Manhood.
