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

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

    Okay, have now read ALL, every word, grokked every nuance -- after briefly allowing javascript and then running into a new bizarreness of Techdirt wanting to set a cookie and asking me to okay tracking all over the Internet and beyond -- anyhoo, it's the old tactic of "okay, we've stated the obvious so can look like answering it impartially, now we're looking for ways to dodge responsibilty, but it's the 'right wing' especially Trump who stole the 2016 election who are actually responsible for everything, not us, we just need more money and power, not a bit of regulation".

    The admitting does state that Section 230 immunizes what's still forbidden to print publisher, which some still gainsay here.

    By the way, I've long thought that Techdirt does have more influence than I suspect, likely (given Msnick's influence and connections he brags about above) that Googlers read, so I've a direct hot-fiber to Google, part of why I'm still here. You kids are still NPCs, though, incoherent drunken monkeys: it's your comments which are skipped over.
