It has been systemically infected by ideological viruses, memes of information intent on poisoning freedom of expression that we take for granted every time we use Google or visit Facebook, YouTube and now the online encyclopedia Wikipedia. Censorship is not limited to the governments’ attempts to silence dissent. Yet when it succeeds, society is greatly hindered because people no longer have easy access to the whole truth. Censorship is one of the most effective ways to lessen people’s freedoms and numb … [Read more...] about Wikipedia: Our new technological McCarthyism, Part 1
How trolls are ruining the internet

Despite a comprehensive set of rules replete with checks and balances and a seemingly open democratic editing process, stories of pay-for-play editing, character assassinations, ideologically-driven trolling, and other offenses against public knowledge suggested all was not right in Jimmy Wales’ empire. Authors and public figures in fields as diverse as Complementary and Alternative Medicine and progressive politics (including Deepak Chopra, Rupert Sheldrake, Gary Null, John Pilger, and George Galloway) have complained of persistent negative coverage on Wikipedia despite the site’s vaunted neutrality and the promise … [Read more...] about Wikipedia: Rotten to the core?
AMERICAN internet trolls have blasted the Royal Family as "arrogant" and "stupid" after they threatened to report abusive online comments to cops. In one vile post believed to be referring to Meghan Markle, one user wrote: "How dare the arrogant BRF [British Royal Family] threaten me, a US citizen, with possible police if I express disgust for that narcissistic skank?"

Maybe the UK IS ready for a republic, cuz this set of stupid royals just trampled all over its subjects. Disgusting. The queen has lost her moxy." Another added "My God how dare they. Words fail me I too am angry. The Royal Family are finished." In the wake of the rumoured 'rift' between Kate and Meghan the Royal Family announced it was cracking down on abusive trolls on Monday.

HUFFPOST PERSONAL 01/25/2019 09:00 am ET By Latoya Shauntay Snell, Guest Writer Last year, I completed two 50Ks and four marathons ― three of which were done within a two-month span. And just a week before I participated in the New York City Marathon, I also completed my first 100K ― the Javelina Jundred event in the Arizona desert, which involves running roughly 62 miles. This year I signed up for 10 marathons and a 50-miler, and I intend on running in my first 100-miler. Still, despite earning over 100 finisher medals and completing close to 200 running, cycling and obstacle course racing events over a span of five years, the internet police continue to remind me to lose some weight. I’m an unapologetic 5’3, 242-pound road and trail ultra runner from Brooklyn sponsored by HOKA ONE ONE running shoe company, and I am continuously fat-shamed. On Jan. 3, I posted a video on my Instagram account of my fitness regimen. … [Read more...] about I’m Running 10 Marathons This Year And I Still Get Fat-Shamed. Here’s My Response.
