01) Gab, Hatreon, other Free Speech Sites Targeted by Web Giants
“The legitimacy of reasons issued is low.”
Good general message…But I’d be hesitant to identify most platforms as “free speech”…
…Sad truth is…there are painfully few true free speech platforms [IE: services that let you discuss ideas, organize, etc…so long as you’re not posting child porn, or doing something illegal]…You essentially need a platform, where no censors have control.
Most services don’t seem to comprehend the nuances between discussing things which may be presently illegal…and committing illegal activities…Which is a major, major problem.
If you’re a “pedophile”…then you know this problem, all too well.
To compound things…most of these platforms allow their users to target, organize, attack and smear “pedophiles”, even on a personal level…An activity which is not only demonstrably illegal, in many cases…but it also stridently opens the door to this vast array of discussion points, which “pedophiles” are, themselves, banned from responding too…They cannot even answer the charges made against them…And that is fundamentally wrong, on so many levels.
These types of “free speech” platforms, are nothing but an echo chamber of abusive hatred.
