Had Enough Of Facebook’s Duplicity And Incompetence?

Google Tackles Trolls With AI

Three months ago, I took strong exception to a “code of conduct” agreed upon between the European Commission, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Microsoft to police and suppress “hate speech” on the Internet.

Should Tech Giants Police “Hate Speech” Online?

There’s a semi-serious adage in journalism: “For any headline that asks a question, the answer is ‘No.’” Test it against the headlines you see each day and you’ll find it’s uncannily accurate. “Can cell phones give you brain cancer?” No. “Is Comcast customer service improving?” No. So it should come as no surprise that the answer to my headline’s question is not “No.” It’s really, “Heck, NO!” Read on for the scoop…
