Leaked Draft Shows potential Internet Censorship in the US.

Recommended Posts

But then if you want to consider social media as a human right as opposed to a private endeavor then it shouldn't be private companies that control it, period. Since we do have private companies running them then I'd say it's their right to moderate the platforms however they like; when we bring them under state control then we can talk about what is or isn't allowed to be moderated. Not that it would change much since the protected class system would probably still end up getting racists and nazis banned.

Access to the internet and to talk to people freely should be a right.

If a candidate is rich and/or famous they would still have a significant advantage over everyone else as they would be able to personally afford or already have more advertisements.

Which is why the election should be wholly funded by public money and donations. You wouldn't be allowed to use your own funds for your campaign nor take more than X from a richer donor.

That's already supposed to be how democracy works - the problem is that if you have 1000 different candidates pushing different programs and each gets 0.1% of the votes you're going to get nowhere. The de facto 2 party system in the US is stupid and the government should help smaller candidates get some time under the spotlight but completely removing the party structure is a bit unfeasible imo.

I'm not advocating for removing the party system. Just getting the money aspect out of it.

ok so if i own a skyscraper in times square and someone wanted to buy an ad spot and put up a giant poop picture and i say no i should get fined for censorship

Again, not the same kind of reach as Twitter or Facebook. Social media is made of millions of voices and should be treated as the public square. The only thing that should not be allowed are incites to criminal activity and violence.

so what? We should take people's rights away if they become too popular? How many followers do I need for my rights to be taken away?

Again, not the same reach, but if we want to talk about it see Colin Kaepernick(sp?), Mohamed Ali, and others. Freedom of speech, yet they're banned from it for exercising it. No, your employer should not be able to fire or bench you just because you made your voice heard. 

 

Social media has the potential to reach every person on the planet, whereas a billboard would only reach whoever passes by.

Ok, and the people who already are rich and famous wouldn't even need that allowance. How will anyone be able to learn about a candidate if they can't advertise their existence? Limiting their spending limits their reach. A rich person can travel the country hosting rallies on his own dime, a poor person can't.

Addressed above.

Twitter and Facebook are still private companies.  What they choose to allow still affects their business.  Having the government step in also dictates how they run their business.  I doubt LTT would want the government to tell them that their Community Standards needs to be revised.

Correct, publishers are not forced to publish things they do not agree with. They are also subject to libel, incitement, and harassment lawsuits of anything they DO publish.

Again, what does this have to do with "political" bans?

I ignored the rest of your post because it's complete bullshit as shown by the latest banning of McConnell's account.

No, what is bullshit is you taking one seemingly unmotivated ban (though I have a hard time trusting anything you have to say on the matter since right wingers lie constantly about who is banned and why) and saying that it's somehow a case of libel or harassment...? What kind of mental gymnastics do you need to do to get that disconnected from reality?

 

Big corporations need to be more responsible for their behavior but this is the completely wrong way of going about it.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

What if it adversely affects Facebook as a company?  What if they see their revenue dropping or they fear backlash from the rest of their customers?  Why do they lose control doing what's best for their own company?  Facebook is not a democracy.

I need to read through this later in detail once I have more time.  My first guess, based on the initial summary posted here, is that this is to combat the likes of facebook/youtube removing posts and shares of views they don't agree with, which would help to KEEP free speech on these kinds of platforms.  

 

My second guess though would be that this could then be twisted to allow for removal of "fake news" or "inappropriate content" as deemed by whoever is in power, which would suck.  If it is only to limit what can be removed, and worded careful to only allow for that, I'm for it.  If it is to also say (or can be manipulated legally to force) what should be removed and encourage removal of more content, then I'm against it.

Their share value went UP after the latest scandal and PENALTY. At this point, nothing is going to take Facebook down.

It's still up to them on how to run their business.  If they feel that certain posts are too toxic for their community then they can remove them.  Every post you make on Facebook is on Facebook owned server space.  It's not the same as speaking on the sidewalk in public.

Given the amount of power that social media networks have (this applies to news networks as well imo), they should be held to a higher standard.

 

Although I also thinks it's a dangerous line to cross -- giving the government any censoring rights.

Have you already signed a contract? The actual analogy would be, can the phone company deny service to someone because they're talking Nazi ideology in a conference call? The answer is no. Section 230 treats the internet like the phone company but gave them limited editorial control over their content in good faith. Google et al have decided that they would like to censor those whom their political ideals find anathema. They have only themselves to blame.
