Why the most important internet law is being rewritten

US lawmakers want to change Section 230, a pivotal moderation clause that’s often called the internet’s most important law. But critics say that changing Section 230 could cause more problems than it solves.

    This report is very biased. Why not diversify the interviewees? why do they always choose people who only reinforce their opinion? Why, instead of reporting the criticisms from the point of view of the presenter, do not call on people who are injured by the Legislation to speak for themselves? The impression that remains is that they do not want to seriously debate the issue.

    the most important aspect for me is the privacy, for example it's very common now to upload your files and data on the internet. Personally I do it in descentralized cloud storages such as Internxt Drive because I know they are secure and they respect my privacy but there are plenty of others that don't do it and people should be aware of it

    If the government forces a private entity to host and associate with speech they don't want that would violate the 1st amendment. The government can't compel someone to express a certain view.

    Nicely done overall, a bit overly simplistic and you failed to mention the bigger issue with social media. The C word, censorship, the fact that the largest tech companies are been engaging in editing and suppressing content based on whether or not it aligns with their political views, not “in good faith” as specified in section 230. Big tech’s abuse of this alone should pierce the veil of protection that 230 gives.I agree that 230 was written without knowledge of where the Internet and social media was headed. It was written in order to give early content providers and the Internet room to grow and expand organically without being overwhelmed with litigation. Well it worked and now big tech has grown into a cancer. A cancer that has metastasize and now reaches into almost every aspect of our lives. Section 230 should be thrown out and completely rewritten. That along with the repeal of the Smith Mundt act of 2012 would be a good start in fixing these rapidly growing problems.

  15. Steve Wonderbelt

    Steve WonderbeltMonth ago

    You're assuming that "good faith" means without any type of bias in regard to viewpoint, but that's not how it's ever been interpreted. I could make a forum specifically for conservatives and ban anyone with a liberal viewpoint and I'd still have section 230 protections.

    The problem is that there is only one side that is providing the definitions of what is considered "problematic content"...

    I don't think section 230 should be modified. I don't think government should tell a company what to do. With that said the predatory EULA and contracts between companies should be reviewed as there are significant issues.

  32. Armoterra

    ArmoterraMonth ago

    I think you misrepresented the point of conservatives. They’re not against platforms deleting posts or suspending accounts; they’re against them doing so selectively, and in a biased manner. Their argument is that if they pick and choose which voices get promoted based on their own political biases, then they’re a publishing company and not a platform.

  33. Frankie L

    Frankie LMonth ago

    But section 230 does not care whether you’re a publisher or platform. It’s about third party users vs not third party users.

  34. Armoterra

    ArmoterraMonth ago

    @Steve Wonderbelt Again, whether the stance is valid or not is not my point.

  35. Steve Wonderbelt

    Steve WonderbeltMonth ago

    @Armoterra It seems like there really isn't a consistent stance on this from either side. Conservatives seem to have different opinions on what the issue is and how to fix it, as do Liberals. Many conservative politicians have introduced legislation that would penalize platforms for moderating anything at all while others don't have an issue with moderation they just want it to be more "fair" while still others don't care about moderation they just think these platforms are breaking anti-trust laws.

  36. Armoterra

    ArmoterraMonth ago

    @Steve Wonderbelt Yes, but their viewpoint is that those biases would be evenly spread if it were a fair system. If you had both conservative and liberal employees, without discriminating against the conservatives, you probably wouldn’t have that problem (you’d have biases, but not over-represented on one side, and outstanding situations can be handled on a case-by-case basis). However, the point is that there is significant evidence for company-wide policies to incorporate such biases that favour viewpoints of the political Left. Reasonable persons with politically Right viewpoints will be banned for expressing their opinion when extremist, harmful persons go unnoticed simply because they favour the political Left. That’s the position of conservatives, that if you elevate one viewpoint and suppress the other, then you’re no longer a “public forum.” It’s not at all that “they don’t get it” as this video portrays. You can agree or disagree with them, that’s another topic, but if you’re going to represent their viewpoint, do so accurately. All that this video showed is that the Verge doesn’t get it.

  37. Steve Wonderbelt

    Steve WonderbeltMonth ago

    Every moderation decision is done in a somewhat biased manner though, just because humans are doing the moderating. We can't help but be biased it's just how our brains work. So every platform moderates in a biased way.

    Several years ago I created a FB Group for News and Info for a town I lived in. Now it is Huge. My intend was to run it as an lightly moderated group with a simple set of rules. I have never had a complaint from FB but last year I decide to turn on moderation during the election to try to keep things non-political. Next thing I knew, I got a message from FB that content had been removed from the Group and since it was Moderated, if it happened again they would remove the Group. What a surprise, I quickly disabled Moderation for the Group.

    Better idea, how about monopoly busting. We had to do this in the past when oil, Ma Bell etc got so big, they were using their size to smash competition. Also, let's not take Google, Facebook etc. word on what's good for us. They are in the business of making money and will use any way they can to destroy competition. BREAK them up and let competition in. These big international companies will always have a reason why we should not touch them, and will use all their resources to convince us they are right.

    Maybe we wouldn't have such an issue if we would stop using terms like hate speech that have no laws attached to them and have no definition.

  81. walspeed

    walspeedMonth ago

    TL:DR, Conservatives want to get rid of Section 230 altogether thinking it means they will be able to say whatever they want but in reality; it will likely have the opposite effect of sites being much faster to censor people promoting lies and hate speech since the site can be held liable. Democrats want to change the law to make it to where sites that do little to police misinformation can be held liable for the misinformation they spread such as Facebook and Twitter doing little to stop the spread of voting misinformation from the 2020 election, allowing the events to happen that led up to the Capitol riot. There's also the concern that repealing section 230, is purely a political move so that whoever is in power can control social media and the one thing preventing either side from doing it, is section 230.

  105. Errhka

    ErrhkaMonth ago

    The problem is that if you repeal this law, there is a likelihood that the internet will become more censored than ever before, as platforms will not want to be liable with anything questionable posted on their website (with blanket bans of certain content being more likely). If everyone is ok with this - fine, but I fear it is the most likely outcome even though it's an unintended one.

    I like free speech too, but I'm not sure that every place is appropriate for it. If you get invited to a birthday party and run around saying the n-word, you would get kicked out. If you go to someone's facebook page and do it, I think it only makes sense that you could get kicked out of there too. Maybe the answer is to give people more control over the moderation of their pages, but full freedom of speech with no repercussions doesn't match our experience in physical life. Freedom of speech means the government can't limit your speech, not that individuals and companies can't treat you differently for it.

    @analogdistortion repealing 230 will strip freedoms from the little man and create an even more policed internet. All your Q and Stormfront friends will be silenced more aggressively.
