this is just the fediverse reflecting what has already happened
everywhere else: we've fragmented into little bubbles, echo chambers.
Yeah. As should be obvious, my implementation of Fediverse protocols is still a few years away (because it will be built on top of WebCit-NG, which isn't finished) but there's no way I am implementing blocks because someone told me to. That will probably get this site blacklisted because we are, as Wikipedia calls non-censor-happy media, "neo-nazi and white supremacist" site.
(Also I used the word "blacklisted" which is offensive to a bunch of rich white people in gated communities.)
I have less faith in intentions than you do in this case. I do think this is what they want, on both sides, and this is 100% planned to pass. They can get it passed, under the guise of 'evil Chinese'.
Then in a year or 2 later when people realize what just happened, it would be too late ( like patriot act )

ideas cannot hold even a whisker to the ideas of the right.
True. However, the latest take on the RESTRICT Act that I heard was that it was designed to fail.
The idea is that the people who are owned by China want to keep using TikTok as a campaign platform, so they built a bunch of poison pills into the RESTRICT Act such as banning VPNs and giving the government (even more than usual) nazi levels of control over social media. That way when it inevitably gets shot down, they can say "we tried to rein in TikTok, but *those* people opposed it."

The recent Usenet kerfuffle over Citadel's Code of Conduct was entertaining. "Muh Twumpists"

At least some of it was in alt.folklore.computers but there was likely some crossposting spillover I missed.

Hmm. Can't find it. I found something on an Ada newsgroup but it was only a handful of messages. If you could shoot over some links I'd be grateful!
