    They would be reflecting consistently, then, if they banned him. I dare them.

    IOW, what I said is correct and you can't refute it.

    OK, but absent such a "disclaimer" must mean that they approve of other "provably false" content. That is my point - once they start approving (or disclaiming) their posted content they are no longer an "open platform".

    It reminds me of the final scene in Aguirre, the Wrath of God.

    Re: Trump to sign revenge-EO targeting social media

    The draft of the EO is out. Its about 6 pages. It does invoke section 230 eligibility and says sites like FBand twitter are part of the "public square" per a supreme court case which I already forgot. There are so more specific actions but they seem flaccid to me.

    He did. 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington DC. Been there a while. Looks like he is going to remain there for a while.

    Oh, Big Brother, where art thou?


    "...The draft order also requires the Attorney General to establish a working group including state attorneys general that will examine the enforcement of state laws that prohibit online platforms from engaging in unfair and deceptive acts.

    The working group will also monitor or create watch-lists of users based on their interactions with content or other users...."
