Fry’s didn’t “suddenly” go out of business. They’ve been a ghost town for years, half the store was empty shelving.
It’s not a surprise, but it is disappointing.

Speech without liability is chaos, and that is exactly what unfettered by law (230) social media is inflicting on civilization now. It will continue to devolve society until it destroys us or adults step in and kill 230 and make social media just as liable as any other publishing medium.
That is the dumbest thing I have ever read. Liability already exists. The party responsible for that liability online is the person who said it, not the website where they posted it, the app they used to share it. The primary beneficiaries of 230 are not big companies. They aren't the ones who wind up having to shut down, because as you already note, they have moderation and the ability to scale. This doesn't punish them in any way shape or form, or fix the problem. It just makes sure that they will continue to never have any competition.
