    Okay, not really. I just wanted to see if you guys were reading carefully.

    But he's attacking Facebook, Twitter, and Google with similar talking points to the right, except he's using mostly left-wing complaints about these companies being in bed with other corporations which censored left-wing points of view.

    Regardless of which side of the fence you're on here, this at least shows that a lot of people are getting really fed up with the censorship of content by Big Social Media, and how a lot of their partnerships to combat "fake news" are irresponsible and dangerous.

    I do miss the days of playing at Hustler Casino in the early 2000s, watching burly security guards wheel Larry around and bowl everyone else out of the way.

    Then he'd be wheeled to a $1500/$3000 limit holdem game with the likes of Huck Seed and other poker flavors-of-the-early-2000s, most of whom would have trouble scratching up the dough to play $15/$30 presently.

    Surely banning stuff on Facebook is more to do with the authoritarian/libertarian spectrum than the American conservative/liberal spectrum? There are authoritarians and libertarians on the left and the right, and both the democratic and republican parties will be split on this issue. In fact your president and his administration have repeatedly attacked the free press far more than any democrat has. I think Trump is more likely to support censorship than any Democrat.

    america is waking up to the fact that privacy is a myth and the informed can no longer afford to let the uninformable be the loudest voices in the world.

    stage one of that sort of epiphany is usually a tantrum. stage two will be a rush to create 'alternative' watering holes for the intellectual bottom feeders, which will either faceplant or be sued out of existence for failing to stop a ("school shooting", "viral rape video", "extremist propaganda", etc etc etc).

    stage three will be a retreat to centerism and glum resentment for 'elites' and their 'fancy shmancy science'.

    i think so.

    as a corporate entity it captured a market and made stupendous amounts of money.

    period.

    the fact that it eventually cratered is, rightly, irrelevant. it wasnt a public utility and the notoriously fickle base that it relied on seducing for success was thoroughly seduced. so what if half of young people removed the app from their phones and deleted their accounts. they did so after like a decade.

    everyone involved 'who mattered' from a corporate perspective got rich.

    I'm not saying sonatine is a liar, I'm just saying to look at his history of predictions, especially at his UFC predictions

    Exactly the story of Yahoo.

    Seeing this post from you pleases me a great deal.

    Zuck has let Sandburg absorb the atomic blast. Zuck actually said recently he will not step down. This was kind of unnecessary but imagine the the markets response to the largest shareholder and chief architect stepping down.

    FB would never recover.

    Speaking of atomic blasts.... imagine FB implodes. What do you do with the data? Do you seal it in concrete and bury it like nuclear waste?

    I’d auction Druff’s data off.

    facebook will never implode in the context youre describing for the exact reason you already gave; someone will acquire it.



    for the data.

    also your zuck read is dead on. stepping down now would only accelerate the inevitable, costing them millions, perhaps billions in revenue while the meat slowly rots off the bones.

    I've long said that progressive,s are NOT liberals..

    Perhaps Larry is still a liberal, most liberals I grew up with wouldn't tolerate the authoritarianism of the progressive,s. They actually are quite facist.
