Hit the nail on the head with the 'discretion causes problems'.
Personally, I feel that journalists should publish ALL papers they get with NO redaction on them. Redaction just allows people who were involved in various criminal or 'damaging to the image of our country' actions to get off scott-free.
Bullshit. If my 6 year old second cousin knows the difference between those three things (we enrolled her in a computer literacy class at the local public library), then damned sure adults should know what the difference is between them when they are specialists in that field.
This was not an 'accident'. This was a motivated attempt at silencing free speech on the internet and demonstrates why ANY censorship laws against ANYTHING (even something so controversial as child pornography) are bad because they can be and are abused.
I don't understand why those politicians were not arrested for treason for daring to use that argument. It would be like me calling for the assassination of the President or the repeal of the Constitution.
Well, the fact is that licensing should be BLANKET licensing to release things in any country where that thing is legal.
None of this "License for the U.S.", "License for Australia", and "License for South Africa" bullplop. That is just an attempt at copyright owners trying to make their stuff appear more 'valuable' by making companies/people pay multiple times for content.
Actually, censorship is NEVER justified. 99% of the time when someone is talking about 'censoring' something, they are actually hoping to push it 'underground' so that it won't come out, become popular, and become normalized.
They tried it with interracial marriages, they tried it with homosexuality, hell.... they even tried it with heterosexuality outside of 'marriage' (a purely human invention).
Bottom line is that we should not allow any censorship and tell people "You don't like X? Fine, you don't have to do it, but leave the people alone who want to do it unless they are physically forcing someone else into something against their will!"
Until these websites stop banning people for things like "comments harmful to minors" (Newsvine) and speaking out against societies viewpoint on some subjects (especially sexual viewpoints) I'm not going to use my real name nor a permanent e-mail address.
We need to have the First Amendment/the right to free speech (which is supposed to protect free speech even when it isn't government trying to clamp down on that) mean something online before I would support this.
