The algorithms social media platforms use and the way they are designed essentially fuel the fire and make it easier for hate to spread and even radicalise people who may have been more reasonable and moderate before. I can't remember the names of the documentaries but I can have a look if you'd be interested in watching? It was quite astounding to watch.

I'm glad that social media platforms have started to shut down people like Trump, it's not the perfect solution but it's a start. At least they're now seemingly taking it all more seriously.
I think you should. It would increase your credibility substantially.

Sorry, Stella, but no. Ford pardoned Nixon before he was even charged for any crimes he may have committed while in office.

It means that he can continue to maintain that no crime occurred, so how can he be charged. Also if further insurrections transpire and, as many believe(!), he continues as POTUS, they can see that they will not face consequence.

I don't think it is particularly virtuous of social media sites to close him down on the cusp of him leaving office and with him facing charges and impeachment.

It would have been virtuous if they had done it when he called Mexicans rapists...or any other time in the last 5 years.

This is just them following the current trend, and if anything it is expounding their own previous cowardice.

I see there is talk of rmoving Trump from his brief apearances in films and TV - Home Alone, Sex and The City etc.. That is just pathetic.

Like tearing down Confederate statues pathetic, Peter?

I think the creators of that content have the right to say, "I repudiate this man and I will not have him presented positively, even neutrally, in my work."

I agree with you about the social media sites. And, for that matter, with the corporate sponsors who say they will not be donating to certain Republican politicians (whom they put there) now that they have their tax cuts.

Whilst the mob were chanting "I can't breathe" in an attempt to mock BLM protesters, one of their fellow rioters was dying of crush injuries caused by the other rioters as they tried to force their way in to the Capitol. Trampling over her in the process.

I love the Home Alone removal of Trump. I’d like for them to be as petty as possible. Total humiliation from every angle. Death by a thousand cuts. Vengeful much?

I wouldn't have banned him until the 21st as he's still leader of a country and precedents are important in cases like this, you give these companies an inch and they end up taking a mile, I believe Merkel had similar reservations.

I don't consider it to be a free speech issue and Twitter is probably more liberal on poor behaviour/controversial opinions than most of its peers (somebody complained about me once, it was after I called Frankie Boyle a twat I think but no action was taken).

They should have reported you to Frankie Boyle directly. Would have been much more fun to hear his response to you calling him a twat Iím sure.

In regards to Trump, the man is a clear and present danger, along with all the supporting QAnon bollocks. Itís wrecked millions of people peoples mental health and will cause a lot more death and destruction the world over. I think that is cause enough to shut the man down until he is out of power. Why people canít see that is beyond me.

Yes, precedents are important. Things like... its not okay to incite insurrection to overturn the result of an election because you lost.
