    A relatively minor withdrawal of 2500 troops by another country?

    Surprisingly, no.

    I think I have enough experience to know a shake up of social media would actually have to infringe on, what you take for granted as your freedom of expression within it. The only way you can truly shake up social media is by identity checking every single user/member, fooking good luck with that one. Imagine the stranglehold that would have on a professionally qualified individual such as yourself. Basically HiaG wouldn't be able to exist.

    Probably down to the fact that people on the right are more likely to motivated by bigotry and hate.

    Verified accounts - like you need for an online bookies account for example - are a long way off imo mate. Additional regulation on SM platforms is much more likely, especially focusing on racism, hate speech, inciting violence and blatant misinformation. The large platforms can easily manage this largely via complex algorithms, much like YouTube already uses to pick out copyright infringement. The issue comes for small forums like this one.

  10. I have just clicked on the BBC News website and I cannot find any reference to the news. Perhaps its tucked away in some dark corner?

    You are such a bright spark, Tobias, perhaps you can explain why this news isn't headline?

  12. Lol!

    So, ANTIFA and BLM, who align themselves to the Democrats, are not violent? The MSM hasn't turned a blind eye to their rioting and violence?

    It's interesting that you use the word bigot, Archie. Hypocrite is another good one that you should get to grips with.

  14. I am looking World News right now. These are the stories, in order of importance:-

    • Bojo giving ultimatum to Ethiopians
    • ****erberg getting grilled by US Senate
    • Atlantic Hurricane bastard
    • Kenyan baby stealers
    • Some cemetery in Africa getting water
    • Crook Putin being exempted from prosecution
    • Dolly Parton curing Covid 19 with her tits
    ...

    Oh, **** me! There it is!

    8th on the list, after the Dolly Parton story.

    Un-****ing-believable!

    Who mentioned violence? We're talking about media platforms here ffs, the only aggression is going to be verbal. Incitement to ra ial hatred, for example, is more likely to come from the right. So, I'd certainly argue, is deliberate dishonesty.

    **** is a word you should consider getting to grips with mate. Stupid is another one.
    Stupid ****. Google it <ok>

    I suppose the hurdle for someone like myself is how does one decide what is it right and what is wrong, especially when it comes to misinformation. Hence as you say, that's a problem for small forums. If regulation means as such an end to small forums, that then impedes on freedom of expression. I've known several people who have had to leave the forum or even change their identity (username) so employer's can't track them, especially in a world of social media contracts. They've done nothing wrong, they just want to keep their personal thoughts and work life separate. Just because someone behaves in work, because they are working for the government or a corporate/professional body, does not mean they hold those same views in personal life, it just means like all of us, they have bills to pay. Complex situation indeed.

  20. If it wasn't for me and aberdude making a monumental effort to keep this thread going, all you'd have is a bunch of weasels sniffing one another's ring-pieces.
