Instead of all these weak requests to explain this or explain that, they should be given a clear legal framework to operate in. Stop pandering to Zuckerberg and his “business model”, stop pissing about “our human-centred approach”, or about being so effing careful not to “overregulate”! For once just set some decent rules!

Google filtering of activist websites under the guise of the wars on terror and Russia will get even worse
Here is evidence of Google filtering search results after the big social media companies were called to account by T May in June 2017 caused my blog as well as Democracy Now, WSWS and many other left wing sites in July 2017. This caused my blog to have its daily hits reduced from 12000 a day to 400 or 500 hundred a day from July;
