I like how Facebook is going all Nanny State 1984 on this, especially considering how they were partially to blame on how we got here in the first place.cocksuckers

This is off topic but along a similar vein.
Twitter has suspended Trump's account. What does that mean for all of his retweeted and embedded tweets.
Yes I know I can Google it but when stuff like this happens and I search for Trump and Twitter, no matter how I phrase it all i get is the recent shenanigans.
When I try I Boolean? operators like plus quotes minus, it doesn't change the results much.
I know it's me and my ignorance but there's got to be an easier way to find things on the internet.

Agreed... the internet was a better more free place in the 90s and early 2000s.

I'd say these BTC comments didn't age well but when you guys posted this comment it had already had a major recovery.

Trumpoloons can't find his trash talk any more?

Gee, the long slide from dog-whistle racism to outright sedition and treason has it's consequences.

I've found it really easy to find fluff and entertainment on Google, but specific research topics and developed articles are harder to find. More and more of the biggest information and media services are slowly progressing towards... providing disposable information at a rapid pace? At some point that I think that engagement might be so large that niche interests will become even less profitable and manageable. Sucks.

The only reason to search Trump's Tweets is if you were interested in finding evidence for his hundreds of crimes and multiple dozens of impeachable acts to hold him accountable for being the most corrupt and incompetent President in American history. As long as he is actively pushing the overthrow of the government, he should be silenced, and Twitter has no obligation to provide a platform for sedition, especially after Trump's attempted coup resulted in multiple deaths.

There is a Trumper who has painstakingly catalogued all of his Tweets though, so the information is out there.

Like most things coming a certain group, this hasn't been thought through. So you want to be able to say anything on Twitter but you also want to repeal the protections for the corporations from being sued when people say whatever they want? Forget Nanny State, we live in a Toddler State.

You want freedom of speech but when I run my own company I am forced to keep quiet when you say things I disagree with on my property? Sounds like the opposite of freedom of speech and free market to me, but what do I know, I only thought it about it for more than 30 seconds.

What is funny, is when we talk about these "other" groups that become radicalized when they are reading too deep into dark beliefs or ideas and that is when they're willing to perform some act of terror, etc. How about basically this occurring to thousands and thousands? How is it all that much different? You had a legion of drones show up willing to take hostages, kill if necessary, force the flipping of a fair election and then go home and go back to work. Wtf is wrong with this country.

Even if Bitcoin doesn't recover enough to convince people to buy/invest more into it, some other coin will pop up as the cryptocoin savior. Tulip bulb currency isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Individually it works, as you voted with your wallet either way, direct.
As a group, its nothing more than a suggestion for others to consider, indirect.
