    Sure it is. Domain registrars, web hosts, DDoS mitigators, they've all proven again and again that they will bend the knee if someone decides that certain content is a no-no.

    Meanwhile, the government cannot create laws or regulations concerning speech, unless it's to ensure and expand free speech. And I think that we've reached a point where that's necessary now.

    There have always been "builders", including the builders of the Tower of Babble.

    Might doesn't always make right, and giants sometimes topple and lose their heads in the most unusual and unexpected of ways.

    In addition, using technology to "spy on" and "control" others is corrupt, to say the least.

    At any rate, you have your opinion, and i have mine.

    Thank you for the clarification.

    The idea of dismantling Amazon and the rest, to be replaced with...what exactly? The various groups whose banning from social media sites is so bemoaned seem like nothing more than deep pits of nastiness and misinformation.

    Maybe I misunderstood. You were saying that the dismantlement of Amazon and Google would be a start. A start to what? Are you saying those organisations should be replaced with something else, or that there shouldn’t be any organisations of that sort at all?

    I fear you have, sir.

    For clarification, read over my posts in this thread.

    Thank you kindly.

    I frequented several Christian Bulletin Boards back in the day! This was before the world wide web existed. Oh what a wonderful memory! Thank you! :D

    Domain registrars don't care. Everything else belongs to you if you set up your own web host--which is certainly possible for a moderate entrepreneur outlay.

    As I pointed out, Bluehost is owned by Mormons, and they do what they want.

    So did I. My favorite was actually a Catholic board.

    Yes, they do. Or they can at least be browbeaten. Some klan guy got his domain registration revoked a few years ago. I think the same thing just happened to 8chan as well.

    Or, y'know, the government can issue regulations saying that legal, constitutionally-protected speech must be hosted by tech companies who operate as content platforms.

    I will be vague on this. But I have professional experience relating to Bluehost. And not as a customer.

    My experience has been that Bluehost admins are a joke. Bad comedy.

    We can also become domain registrars, as Bluehost is.

    That law has been passed and revoked already as a violation of the First Amendment. But that's government and has nothing to do with the discussion of this thread.

    That has nothing to do with my point, unless you're contending that Christians are inherently poor tech-company managers and thus must depend on pagans to handle our technical needs.
