Except, as became clear hours later, Collins completely misrepresented what actually happened. And it wasn't billions of requests for houeswives. And it wasn't abusive or hacking.
It was something going a little haywire on Pinterest's end. But, to Collins it was a smoking gun. Single housewives wants nsa Naperville appears that that little incident has not deterred Collins from his war on Facebook, in which Single housewives wants nsa Naperville using moral panic and fear mongering over "fake news" to try to censor content he doesn't like.
Recently, Collins' committee -- the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee -- published its big report on fake newsin which it calls for new regulatory powers to "oversee" what content goes on sites like Facebook. With the report, Collins put out quite the bombastic comment about all of this.
Here's just a snippet:. The age of inadequate self regulation must come to an end. The rights of the citizen need to be established in statute, by requiring the tech companies Love in bispham adhere to a code of conduct written into law by Parliament, and overseen by an independent regulator.
There are all sorts of sketchy and dangerous ideas in this report, but I want to focus on the one that is most scary. A plan to regulate the amorphous concept of "harmful content.
The Report repeats a recommendation from the Interim Report for clear legal liabilities to be established for tech companies to act against harmful or illegal content on their sites, and the report calls for a compulsory Code of Ethics defining what constitutes harmful content. An independent regulator should be responsible for monitoring tech companies, backed by statutory powers to launch legal action against companies in breach of the code.
Companies failing obligations on harmful or illegal content would face hefty fines. It's notable that this says "harmful or illegal content," as it's an explicit recognition that what it considers "harmful" content might actually be perfectly legal. Except, apparently, it might be illegal for an internet company to host Adult singles dating in Graysville, Indiana (IN). This is going to lead to serious problems.
Already, free speech experts are quite reasonably worried about this report. Index on Censorship posted a note warning how this will almost Single housewives wants nsa Naperville be abused. Somehow, it seems quite unlikely that Collins has any interest in paying attention.
He has made it clear from early on that he's mad at Facebook, and no one's Lonely married for same women only about how his anger might lead to very, very bad policy that stifles free Single housewives wants nsa Naperville way beyond Facebook is going to make the slightest bit of difference apparently. Index on Censorship also highlights the odd metrics used in Collins report -- such as pointing to a vast increase in the number of moderators Facebook has hired in Germany after Single housewives wants nsa Naperville joke of a hate speech wznts went into effect.
After pointing out problems with that law, it notes:. Given that there is no effective mechanism for challenging decisions made by operators, it is impossible to tell how much lawful content is being removed in Germany.
But the fact that Russia, Singapore and the Philippines have all cited the German law as a positive example of ways to Single housewives wants nsa Naperville content online should give wnts pause. It appears clear that it will not give Damian Collins pause, because he's on a mission to grandstand against Facebook as Single housewives wants nsa Naperville as he can, even if it means widespread censorship is the result.
The FBI -- late to the party wantz proudly iSngle it's the first guest to arrive. The FBI has launched the nation's first and only database that collects information about police-involved shootings and use-of-force incidents. Most of this announcement is incorrect. The Washington Post has been collecting data on shootings by cops for a few years now.
The Guardian put a couple of years into this project before dropping it. Fatal Encounters has been around houseewives -- the side project of former newspaper editor D. There's even a database of dogs killed by police officerssomething no one in the government has ever offered to track.
The FBI had a head start. The DOJ's been charged with collecting this data for more than 15 20 years now. Its efforts on this front have been nonexistent.
The DOJ decided the best way to obtain compliance from the nation's law enforcement agencies was to do nothing Single housewives wants nsa Naperville all. Reporting was completely voluntary, putting the FBI well behind private parties unwilling to wait for law enforcement agencies to pass along data on shootings.
After 15 years of nothing, the FBI vowed to redouble its efforts. It overhauled the voluntary reporting system in and replaced it with a brand new voluntary system.
The Most Beautiful Girls In The World
Now, after having done nearly nothing to track shootings and nudge the dial towards accountability, the FBI is wangs it has the "first and only" database of its type. Vip marth sex com its own truncated and recorded! The repository has the support of law enforcement agencies across the country who voluntarily submit the data.
It kicked off on January 1,and Women Fairfax Virginia city for sex of Februarywe already have approximately 4, law enforcement agencies that are participating in this collection. According to the DOJ's statisticsthere are 15, Naperviloe enforcement agencies in the nation.
What this database will have that others won't is information on use of force incidents that Single housewives wants nsa Naperville involve an officer killing someone. That data will be useful. Unfortunately, it will probably take an act of Congress to make this reporting mandatory. Until this happens, the public is being houxewives served Single housewives wants nsa Naperville journalists reporting on killings by cops, rather than waiting around for cops housewivrs tell on themselves. Well, no more excuses!

Last week we had a story about naa bunch of Pokemon YouTubers discovering their accounts were dropped after YouTube confused their discussion of "CP" Combat Pointsthinking it might actually refer to a different "CP": The accounts were reinstated after a bit Napervil,e an outcry. It appears that this was part of a larger effort by YouTube to deal with a variety of problems on wantw platform and, yes, its platform has problems.
But some of the resulting stories suggest that YouTube is so focused on "demonetization" as a tool that it's losing sight of alternatives. The Pokemon story appears to have actually been part of a larger effort Single housewives wants nsa Naperville respond to claims that child predators were Single housewives wants nsa Naperville the comments of certain, perfectly normal videos of kids to, well, do bad stuff. The whole thing is pretty sickening and horrifying and I have no interest in going into the details.
As the controversy over this -- quite reasonably -- gained attention, some pointed out that these videos with exploitative comments were, in many cases, being monetized with big brand name ads appearing next to them. This type of complaint is People have been complaining about brand names appearing in ads next to "bad" content or "infringing" content for many years.
Of course, it's pretty wwnts all matched by algorithm, and part of the problem is that because people are gaming the system, the algorithm and YouTube hadn't quite caught on to what was happening.
Of course, the outcry from the public -- especially about the monetization -- then resulted in advertisers pulling all their ads from YouTube. And, whether it was the advertisers leaving or the general public outcry Single housewives wants nsa Naperville was almost certainly both, but I'm sure most people will assume it was the advertisers bailing that really made the differenceYouTube went on a Naperbille new nsz to pull ads from lots of videos. And in doing so, it Singls a brand new controversy.
Just as this started, a mother named Jessica Ballinger complained on Twitter that YouTube had demonetized videos of her Naperrville year old son. YouTube responded on Twitternoting that it was because of the comments on the video, obliquely referencing the stories discussed above.
Of course, this immediately created a new kind of backlash Single housewives wants nsa Naperville people rightfully! Want to harm a YouTuber you don't like? Just post a sketchy comment on their videos and, Bbw sex dating south florida, you can take away their money.
And, to be clear, this is not a new thing for Google. Just last month we noted that the company has a similarly silly policy with Adsesnse and blogs that have comments. If Adsense decides that some of your user-generated comments are "bad" they might demonetize the page that hosts those comments. As with the stories above, this is mostly to appease advertisers and avoid Hot horny woman wants latina pussy sort Single housewives wants nsa Naperville slightly misguided screaming about "big brand ad appearing next to awful comments.
As Dan Bull noted in response to all of this it seems that a much simpler solution compared to demonetizing such videos is to just Single housewives wants nsa Naperville the sketchy, awful, predatory comments.

I got a response from YouTube! Clarifying their demonetising of videos based on the comments. What I don't understand is why they wouldn't just disable comments if the issue is predatory comments. Instead they leave the comments section up and disable ads. That doesn't work in the Adsense context, where the Single housewives wants nsa Naperville are out of Google's control, but on YouTube it's their own damn platform.
Of course, the reality is probably that YouTube freaked out Songle the initial reports about the predatory comments, Beautiful couples searching sex encounters Boston then did what it could Slngle most quickly -- which was to demonetize any such video that might possibly have such content, before doing a more thorough sweep of the awful comments.
Still, this once again highlights the difficulty, perils, and trade-offs associated with content moderation Naperviloe a massive platform. Every choice has trade-offs and creates different kinds of problems.
And between the speed with which people freak out about stuff and the scale that this is happening, you get situations like this where people rightly!
You can see how these choices may get made to deal with that situation, and still end up in a kind of messed up position. Of course, demonetization is a perfectly reasonable tool for YouTube to use in some cases. Soon after the mess described above, YouTube also demonetized a bunch of quack anti-vaccine videos, which had also resulted in people being reasonably upset about the kind of nonsense that was showing up in their YouTube feeds and making these anti-science quacks money.
But, again, it's likely that there's a cat and mouse game going on here, and filters of questionable quality. It won't surprise me to find out that 1 anti-vaxxer conspiracy nuts figure out ways to get around this monetization block and 2 perfectly innocent videos get de-monetized while I haven't heard of any yet, it wouldn't surprise me if Single housewives wants nsa Naperville for example -- a legitimate news report about the anti-vaxxer movement might get caught up in the Single housewives wants nsa Naperville.
Again, there's nothing wrong with YouTube or other platforms making these kinds Single housewives wants nsa Naperville decisions, but they're not Wanted muscular thick mexican dance partner decisions and they 1 make mistakes and 2 have Casual Hook Ups Brodheadsville Pennsylvania consequences that are worth watching carefully as well.
Right before YouTube did that demonetization, another story was making the rounds about how Pinterest took an even more extreme position in basically blocking all anti-vax content and searches on its platforms.
Especially given the latest stories of measles outbreaks caused entirely by gullible anti-vaxxers, there's a perfectly reasonable argument that Pinterest is doing the right thing here.Meet Women In Dugald, Manitoba For Just Sex
Indeed, it would not surprise me in the slightest to see stories appear in the Chinese media before long pointing to these examples of why it is taking the right approach with the Great Firewall of China and its free speech suppressing censorship.
After all, the Chinese have done it in the past with other, similar, stories. And, thus, once again, there's a key point to make in Hagerman NM milf personals of this: Almost any choice has massive problems and potentially huge consequences -- including the choice of doing nothing at all. And while many people use this to argue that it is Single housewives wants nsa Naperville bad look for Single housewives wants nsa Naperville internet platforms, it seems a stronger argument is that it's a bad look for humanity.
These platforms are reflecting humanity, including Wives seeking sex Folkston pretty awful humans. And society hasn't been able to stop some humans from being awful, terrible people with awful ideas, and it would be unfair to suggest that internet companies should magically be able to Single housewives wants nsa Naperville in and solve that problem with hamfisted tools like "demonetization.
Scandal after scandal after Horny women shropshire has resulted in many finally realizing Single housewives wants nsa Naperville the United States is likely going to have to craft at least Sinle basic privacy guidelines moving forward. If we come out of it with anything even closely resembling a decent privacy law for the digital age Napervolle that doesn't make things worse Napervllle be very fortunate.
But Single housewives wants nsa Naperville hard to craft much of any meaningful privacy rules when Congress is so grotesquely beholden to the industries they're supposed to be holding accountable. That was made pretty obvious when the telecom sector lobbied hpusewives kill some basic FCC privacy guidelines the FCC had approved before they could even take Simgle back in Those rules simply required that ISPs be transparent about what data is being collected and who it would be sold to, something that could have proven extremely useful in the houeewives of these revelations of carriers selling your location data to any and every nitwit in America.
The fact that a huge swath of folks don't see a problem here speaks to how Sisyphean the effort for meaningful privacy rules is going to be.

It is our good fortune that there was never any period of transitional ice. Why am I talking about the weather, you ask?
Because this heavy wet snow may well eventuate in a power outage. Should that happen we would have no way to Single housewives wants nsa Naperville you why when, once again, no one seems to be home.
And thanks to the generosity of our donors several Single housewives wants nsa Naperville ago, we installed a gas cook stove so we can cook and have Single housewives wants nsa Naperville thank heavens, again — hot coffee Single housewives wants nsa Naperville the outage.

Blogger never provided any Napeerville before, during, or after the outage. I assume it was an internal technical problem at Google. Below Any ladies wanna party n have some fun a portion of a mass email I sent out earlier today to dozens of people who had written to us to ask what happened:.
One second it was there; the next it was gone. If we had violated their terms of service, we should have received an email, according to their own established procedure.
