Yawn, :roll:
Why do you deny this Monty?

Because that cartoon would not get the artist arrested in the UK.

Facebook and Instagram blocking far right groups here has nothing to do with our courts.
That decision came from headquarters in California.

Either a private company can refuse service for any reason it wants or else bake that gay wedding cake. You can't have it both ways.
Of course it would. You have had hundreds of people raided in the middle of the night for expressing that sentiment on social media and deliberately locked in cages with jihadis. Your fascist government even plasters your communities with signs warning people that they are not allowed to voice dissent of their own genocide.

So lucky to have someone reading enough RW propaganda to be able to tell me what is going on in my own country...
For legal reasons, we are not threatening to destroy U.S. government property with our glorious medieval siege engine. But if we wanted to, we could. But we won’t. But we could.

Not from the whitehouse. It’s a .com address, not .gov. This is personal information phishing dude.

Unhappy with Twitter, thousands of Saudis join pro-Trump social network Parler

Saudis are prolific users of social networks, particularly Twitter. The kingdom has Twitter’s largest user base in the Middle East, with 11.7 million people on the platform, according to Arabic social media monitoring firm Crowd Analyzer.

“It is great to be here guys. Twitter and other major platforms are not our place anymore. Everyday[sic] hundreds of #Saudi accounts are suspended for NO reason,” a user called @5a1di, who has 109,000 followers on Twitter, posted on Parler.

Very interesting. I remember Prince Alwaleed bin Talal owns a large portion of Twitter shares. Could he be behind the alleged censorship? Interesting timing considering how close we are to the brink of war with Iran, apparently.

Forbes: These Ex-Spies Are Harvesting Facebook Photos For A Massive Facial Recognition Database
over the last five years a secretive surveillance company founded by a former Israeli intelligence officer has been quietly building a massive facial recognition database consisting of faces acquired from the giant social network, YouTube and countless other websites. Privacy activists are suitably alarmed.

That database forms the core of a facial recognition service called Face-Int, now owned by Israeli vendor Verint after it snapped up the product’s creator, little-known surveillance company Terrogence, in 2017. Both Verint and Terrogence have long been vendors for the U.S. government, providing bleeding-edge spy tech to the NSA, the U.S. Navy and countless other intelligence and security agencies.
The Times of Israel: Emails show Facebook used Israeli app to monitor phones, mulled selling data
LONDON — A UK Parliament committee accused Facebook on Wednesday of cutting special deals with some advertisers to give them more access to data as it released 250 pages worth of documents on the tech giant’s internal discussions about the value of users’ personal information.

Included in the confidential emails released by the Parliament’s media committee was information showing that Facebook used an Israeli app it had acquired to monitor users’ iPhone usage, using that information to identify competitors.

Last month, the committee seized confidential Facebook documents from the developer of a now-defunct bikini photo searching app as part of its investigation into fake news.
Forbes: WhatsApp Has Exposed Phones To Israeli Spyware -- Update Your Apps Now
WhatsApp admitted a major cybersecurity breach that has enabled targeted spyware to be installed on phones through voice calls. The security vulnerability affects both iPhone and Android devices, with malicious code (allegedly) from Israel’s NSO Group, transmitted whether or not a user answers an infected call.

WhatsApp told the Financial Times, which broke the story, that “the attack has all the hallmarks of a private company known to work with governments to deliver spyware that reportedly takes over the functions of mobile phone operating systems. We have briefed a number of human rights organizations to share the information we can, and to work with them to notify civil society.”

He could not handle admitting Star Citizen ain't happening as advertised, so he bolted instead.

It's basically the Obamacare of video games.
