Bird site is like "Never forget we are garbage"
@stefanhayden Inciting terrorism against victims and their families isn't healthy conversation, the bloody Jackass. ><
@stefanhayden Standards. The lack of standards is why I left.
@stefanhayden it is a two-edged sword.
On the one hand, you want to be able to preserve freedom of speech (as illustrated by the 1st Amdt in the US) even for your enemies.
On the other hand, you might consider that some things ought not to be promoted (like hate, Holocaust denial, antisemitism) like some other countries do (like France).
But the real question is, do you want a *private* company to decide this?
This is the question and the answer IMHO should be no.
@Keltounet 1st amendment only apply to the government. So private companies are supposed to decide that. and then we decide what companies live or based on those decisions.
@Keltounet not letting companies decide what counts as valid speech on their platform sounds anti capitalist to me.
@Keltounet company must build places people want to be. places with no nazis. thinking they should not have the right to do that means you want government controlled companies.
Others have decided to allow Nazis.
The reason I started a private company for my publishing is that I wanted to decide what speech I would support. TWP doesn't, and never will, publish Nazis.
Free speech doesn't mean I need to spend my private resources supporting that speech.
Nazis are welcome to build their own Internet platforms. They have done so.
@stefanhayden I’m tired of Jack saying he was poor at communicating decisions in the past, every single time, as if he isn’t still poor at communicating decisions. Not that it matters. He’s a Nazi sympathiser!
@stefanhayden too bad "We Never Forget Who We're Working For" has already been used as a corporate slogan
@stefanhayden "the reason is simple: we are garbage"
