    Angry John McCain wants to destroy blogs, free speech

    John McCain has made clear that he doesn’t like the blogosphere.

    Now he has introduced legislation that would treat blogs like Internet service providers and hold them responsible for all activity in the comments sections and user profiles. Some highlights of the legislation:

    – Commercial websites and personal blogs “would be required to report illegal images or videos posted by their users or pay fines of up to $300,000.”

    – Internet service providers (ISPs) are already required to issue such reports, but under McCain’s legislation, bloggers with comment sections may face “even stiffer penalties” than ISPs.

    — Social networking sites will be forced to take “effective measures” — such as deleting user profiles — to remove any website that is “associated” with a sex offender. Sites may include not only Facebook and MySpace, but also Amazon.com, which permits author profiles and personal lists, and blogs like DailyKos, which allows users to sign up for personal diaries.


    Kevin Bankston of the Electronic Frontier Foundation notes that this proposal may be based more “on fear or political considerations rather than on the facts.” When he introduced his legislation to the Senate, McCain offered no evidence that children are being victimized by people who post comments on blogs.

    McCain’s legislation could deal a serious blow to the blogosphere. Lacking resources to police their sites, many individual blogs may have to shut down open discussion.

    FUck you, McCain. You're a piece of shit, and you fuck children on your spare time. Legislate that across the border.

    Hold me Georgie!




    Not really relevant. Just felt like posting it.


    Does the legislation have any chance of passing?

    I doubt it, McCain is just flexing his Republican control issues.

    You know it would only be fair and good, if we were allowed then to 'monitor' his thoughts then too.

    ^^ wouldn't be much to monitor..what a waste of time..destroy blogs..isn't there...more IMPORTANT things going on in the world..?
    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.
