Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    THE GOOD CENSOR: Tech Companies Should `Police Tone',

    Give Users `Positive Guidelines'

    A 85-page briefing entitled "The Good Censor," exclusively leaked to Breitbart News from within Google, advises tech companies to "police tone rather than content" and to not "take sides" when censoring users.

    https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/10/09/google-police-tone-not-content-good-censor/

    Gee, turns out Google's internal policy is ALMOST EXACTLY what I've argued for HERE. ALMOST EXACTLY.

    HOWEVER, don't overlook the likelihood that "leak" is yet more propaganda from Evil Online, intended to be followed in reverse.

    Oh, and you cloons who auto-deride because of the link site: YOU CAN GET THE FULL GOOGLE INTERNAL DOCUMENT. What you're saying there is you don't believe even Google if comes by way of Breitbart!
