they do NOT want to lose their Section 230 freedom-from-liability from what people post.
That’s why that “sort of” crack down on s.a. material in English areas of sites only – but they run rampant in non-English areas of sites because the anti s.a. materials laws are mostly in English speaking countries.
X is one of the worst offenders in that regard. Once you leave English speaking twitter, the stuff that’s out there would set your hair on end and it only got worse in the past year.
Anyway. that’s why they crack down. If They lose Section 230, they lose their profit making enterprises and publishing m-a-ni fast oh content on their sites is a quick way to see themselves on the otherside of a Congressional hearing, losing Section 230 forever.
