We all have a brain to use as a filter for trolling and disinformation.
As long as I check for sources, as see Facebook as the best news aggregator. And platforms like Facebook limit problems that were before, like exposure, fragmentation and yes, spam.
Platforms like Facebook may have the censorship problem, but as a simple news aggregator, I don't miss email lists (or the giant spam folder, leaking into the inbox)
PS: When I say news, I don't mean CNN like news, but ArsTechnica like news, so censorship is not a problem here.
It's a false position because pure fantasy: "a system of protocols" is just academese meaning STALL FOR TIME.
So instead of stalling for time, trying to reach a solution to this problem, we should just go with a (at best) useless law, just because it does something.
Article 13 might take techdirt out of europe. This will hurt both techdirt and it's readers. And why? Because some people want more money. Why should Mike be paid by someone when he's only talking about censorship.
