@comzeradd The problem is when everyone removes your platform, and so few companies control platforms to begin with. Also by actively going against people, you actually given them more validity than if you just ignored them. People are more curious about banned books than the rantings of street profits people ignore.

I wrote about this a few years back:


@djsumdog blocking a domain or an account falls under "ignoring them". And I think that's xkcd' point. "Actively going against them", would mean that you take more direct action against their platform.

Thanks for the post, I'll read it more thoroughly. But I think there is a difference between infrastructure providers and online communities.

@djsumdog @comzeradd 1 reason why so few people care about this: You got stuck in problem-orientation in your article - and don't advance to solution, applicable for the indiviuals.
But we have made this and even then most people hadn't been interesting in digital rights too much.
I think, they have to feel consequences on their own bodies, before they take this problem serious and set measures to adress solutions.


And a helpful addition: if you are banned from a board and you think that was assholish behavior on the part of the owner, you are free forever to tell other people, "I don't recommend Fred's* board to people because in my experience, Fred* is an asshole."

*Not his real name
