Google Ideas...



Yeah okay. Let's just pretend like we care.

What are they going to do about it? Basically boils down to the same thing they proposed in the UN report to stop 'cyberviolence on women'.



And you guys were worrying about Microshit being up your asshole. The government, or Google, can't really do much about it without sticking an eye over everyone's 'cyber-shoulder'.

Not that we have much privacy nowadays...So what's the difference at this point?

i remember reading that many of the accounts taken down were not actually from isis, but only had writings in arabic.

Drawing lines as to what is 'freedom of expression' and what is 'promoting terrorism' will do that--especially on such a massive scale.

You draw the line one way and miss many 'possible ISIS' or draw the line the other way and take out many 'not ISIS'.



Doesn't affect me much. Arabs though? Definitely.

i think it's far-fetched to call them criminals when they're strongly against isis
whether they actually help in the fight is another story.



So what if they're against ISIS? They're still criminals because they break the law.

There's a limit to "freedom of speech"

You're not free to shout fire in a crowded theater

You're not free to plot attacks on the general civilian population

Fucking google ideas. Literal idiots that make fools of themselves by having no idea what they're talking about. Even if we took them off the clearnet(you know, that's like how the internet works guys) it would just make it harder for us to track ISIS communication. Giving a terrorist organization incentive to use more protection isn't helping anyone.

Meh, it's not like ISIS is making all that much of a secret about it's whereabouts. Is this Google idea a good thing, debatable. Is it even feasible without pissing off a bunch of useless bleeding hearts..not likely.

If you think about it, overexcessive ruminating on the atrocities ISIS commits might help the military get new recruits and elect hawks in office.

I or anyone I know can't do anything about them, save for enlisting, anyway, fact of the matter is, they aren't that badass, and the fact of the matter is they are overhyped ,and if they tried another 9/11 they would fail, and we and our allies would crush them. They are in essence cowards and they don't want a real war. The quote "war on terror" wasn't a war. WWII was a war. First, this is a police issue, they are criminals, it should never have been something political. George W. Bush went wrong there, and we got the war on terror and the war in Iraq.

So who cares unless its something political at stake, and thats whoever stands to lose in that arena by such a proposal. I get sick of hearing about their achievements and exploits, have the government deal with it in a civil way without the need to throw billions of dollars in taxpayers' money into the military and aggressive foreign interests. There should be more coordination with allies instead of efforts for one country to police the world.

Doesn't the gov't technically have permission and authority to remove propagandist sites and whatnot if they support terrorism? I mean, ISIS is a terrorist group, so I don't think their lil sites are protected under free speech, whether they're run by ISIS themselves or their sympathizers....
