Good for you, I approve of independent thought

You used an important word: PRIVATE.
News for you - this is the 21st century, not 19th. One word: internet.
News and information is more democratic than it ever has been.


I know other words :Monopoly and Cartel for example.

I don't see why a PRIVATE company should allow people who break its rules. If you owned a shop and someone kept coming in and nicking stuff you'd soon tell them to fuck off.
Perhaps but if I ran Tesco and Sainsburys and I refused to serve you food because you didn't like beans, you'd be a tad pissed off. Especially is the nearest Lidl was forty miles away.

If a private company doesn't want someone coming along and saying X, Y, or Z then that person is NOT being silenced. They can go off and start their own website and make whatever claims they want
Yeah, sure, and everyone can grow up to the Queen.
No one is controlling access to world news or censoring alternative opinions.
Okay maybe you can let the US Govt know not to bother with its antitrust suit against Google.
You need to remind yourself that you are not George Orwell and this is not the 1940s any more, because you seem to think it is
My dear chap, if only it were, we could exchange letters in The Times over this.

If all the psychologists, psychiatrists, and social scientists currently residing on the the planet were given a millennium to ponder that question, I still suspect the consensus would be "Some folks always were and always will be, assholes."


Probably. Or “we’re all assholes some of the time”. But the level of teh stoopid in this is amazing.

False analogy on your part. If I didn't like beans and stood in the foyer of Tesco and Sainsburys, shouting out and waving placards and being abusive to other shoppers who bought beans then...well, I may still be pissed off if they banned me, but I could hardly blame them. And, in the case of having to shop elsewhere, starting my own website with my own views is not the same as having to drive 40 miles to Lidl. Which brings me to...

Another false analogy. Starting your own website is not like dreaming of becoming Queen. You could have it done in 5 minutes if you wanted. It truly is open to everyone. And it really is as simple as that.

More totalitarian governments than the US have tried stopping the internet and information exchange. No one seems to have managed it yet.

Strangely, I'd rather like that. Whatever happened to the *person of no specific gender* of letters?

They were banned for not liking beans, not making a nuisance to other users/shoppers.
However before we torture the analogy further, lets move onto...

Well, that wasn't an analogy, that was a piss take.

And it really isn't that simple. A website is not a the search engine that drives c70% of the net, or a social media platform that dominates the news awareness of a significant portion of the world. I can build a website which no-one would find with a few quid for the domain name. Building a system that would give me a chance of competing with Facebook, possibly a little more and I would be blocked, or bought out if I became even a moderate threat.

I'm glad you think no-one suppresses access to information or preferences one side of an argument on the internet.

Is it just me, or is TMP down all day so far?

Two Possibilities - Bronie's Brutal Censors have struck it down for being insufficiently Nazi, or else Bill has wanked himself unconscious and fallen face-down into the server stack.

Stone Mountain's OK with IP theft, so Bill deleted his thread to protect him from looking a cunt.
