Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt
from the some-speech dept
A time will come — not right away, not all at once, but hopefully within the next year — when each of us manages to go a full day without thinking about Donald Trump.
That’s a happy thought to hold onto.
The rest of us were sick of it in 2017.
For editor’s choice on the insightful side, we start out with an anonymous comment about Trump’s renewed calls for repealing Section 230:
Twitter could hold a lottery with 1st prize the honour of pressing the ban key on @realdonaldtrump
They could make enough money from that to cover the loss of Trump associated advertising!
Start your own damn website and say whatever the hell you want. That’s “Free Speech” on The Internet. Just don’t think you can do that on my website, Mike’s website, or Twitter’s website.
Over on the funny side, our first place winner is David chiming in on a thread about the Tennessee state representative who wants congress to ignore the Supreme Court ruling on flag burning, and specifically in regard to the suggestion that, given his past attempt to amend the Constitution to cite the will of “Almighty God”, he probably thinks he’s doing God’s bidding:

For editor’s choice on the funny side, we start out with Pixelation responding to our post about 5G paranoia getting dumber:
That’s because 5G causes brain damage!*
*I suppose I should add…/s
Finally, it’s David with a complaint on last week’s comment post:
Know what’s worst about the “funniest, most insightful” weekly?
I clearly see that some people voted for me. And at the end of the race, their votes don’t count. But nobody even bothers to ask me whether I’ll be conceding gracefully and leave my keyboard at the end of the week.
That’s all for this week, folks!
