POed About Censorship

Recommended Posts

 CSB    2,436

I am just as pissed off about censorship as anyone ! But I am telling you that I see some big changes coming to the internet and vary soon . Most all sites will be held accountable for the content people post on them and that could be about anything from this point . It is all ready happening . Here is just one more step to censorship . I found this in topics of human trafficking . I agree there has to be something done about human trafficking but I don't agree with holding a site responsible for their members/or guests posts, threads. or even their comments . Warning the free net is under construction !

Most every morning I sit with coffee in hand and read daily news and up dates so yesterday I found this piece of legislation posted on the  https://www.congress.gov/ web site . Then I did some searching to see if anyone has made any changes to their site or sites and I did find one that has already pulled their personals listings from their site . In some ways I agree but then I kinda don't; if people want to sell their own souls on the internet that should be their right to do so . 

Craigslist has now pulled their personals listings to avoid any persecution from government . 

Here is what was found when I clicked their personals listings tab .

US Congress just passed HR 1865, "FOSTA", seeking to subject websites to criminal and civil liability when third parties (users) misuse online personals unlawfully.

Any tool or service can be misused. We can't take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day.

To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!

Here is the link to the page : https://www.craigslist.org/about/FOSTA

Again I don't condone human trafficking of any kind but I strongly am in disagreement with holding a gun to a website's owners head .

 

Something more that may interest you . I have been doing some digging and here is a few things that I have found . Using my TOR browser a long with a VPN ( virtual private network ) I have found that there is more than just porn on upper web cam sites .

There are those that are using these sites to sell what ever; including human trafficking and to communicate about up coming events such as protests .

Here again the internet is changing; people are finding ways around the censorship that sites like FaceBook and Google and others are taking down .

Mark my words " The American Free Net will soon become a mirror image of China's net or maybe even North Korea's .

  It's Happening ! :cry1:

They've been chipping away in the background for a while now. Much more aggressive most recently, or so it seems. Not good. Not good at all. Words don't kill people any more than guns do <--- does that even make sense? lol

If everyone who voted for Trump ... literally ... stopped using the internet for shopping, YouTube, and their social media ...... these corporations would have stockholder meetings within a month and the shit would fly.

I feel the same as you.  

The information highway which gave us so much freedom is no more.  I am contemplating completely leaving the net or at least completely stopping with posting.  There is no way to tell what may me used against us at some point in the future by nefarious factions. 

It is happening !  And the destruction of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights will continue.  :cry1:

That would be a great loss. And they win.

I know.  That is why I have not made that decision to do that yet at this point.

This is the best place I have ever found on the net.  I love this place.  It is a little piece of paradise and I have connected with so many amazing people here.

I am sad, so sad to see what is happening.   :cry1:
