p2pnet is not, however, an online version of that — a place in cyberspace where anything and everything goes.
Some people think I’m under an obligation to allow them to post whatever they want, making personal threats against me and my family, and waving nut-case ‘lawsuits’ in my face, if I delete their junk comments.
I don’t moderate p2pnet per se. However, when I notice some half-vast idea about alien beings, ‘laws’ to live by, messages from ancient cultures, posts promoting hate, and so on, I delete them.
Below is a clip from a Q&A I did with the guy who runs Anon News >>>
Newton: For the first time in history, people aren’t only making more and more choices, they’re making their choices stick, I say here – http://www.p2pnet.net/story/46415. Would you agree?
Joe: I think this is not the first time this happens. There have been many revolutions in the past, and some of these choices have stuck. Only this time, there’s the internet; a global communication mechanism that enables people around the world to communicate in real-time, even those in censored countries like China. The internet enables people around the world to see the bigger picture, and make choices on a larger scale. A “global revolution” is really possible now. It’s not just one right we fight for now, it’s humanity as a whole, the entire spectrum of rights. This entire affair with Wikileaks and Julian Assange isn’t the cause for this massive change you can see on a global scale, it’s just a catalyst. While even ‘civilized Western countries’ are starting to look more and more like police states (camera surveillance, central databases of biometric data, arresting protestants through the use of police provocation, etc.), the “resistance” amongst people is growing as well. At one point, as we’ve seen in for example Greece, it just blows up. And I believe that’s a good thing, as it reminds those in power why they were supposed to have power.
As someone (I can’t recall who) said, “governments should be afraid of their people, not the other way around”.
I whole-heartedly agree.
Providing a free soap box for anyone who turns up isn’t part of the deal.
