How the internet threatened government censorship, but then became a tool of it, and how the internet has become monopolised by huge private entities who have an enormous power, to censor or otherwise.
What do you think of censorship, and censorship on this platform? I do not delete comments, however many seem to get marked as spam and many users seem be shadow banned – not by me.
I didn’t give any specific examples when talking about corporate censorship, as often corporations cite breaches of terms of service and usually corporate online censoring is opaque enough for outsiders to never really be sure why something was removed. I didn’t want to get stuck in the details of specific case where company motives are unclear, and they’re always unclear.
