Why? Explain why what I said is not true. Explain how a private business choosing what they offer is "suppression" or "prohibition".

Unless you want to just keep calling people stupid. If so, have at it. I'm not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree which is why this should be all the more embarrassing for you to not understand.


I apologize for that. I know you're not stupid. The argument is, however. The songs, or "product", were removed and banned for political reasons, not because they wanted to switch up their inventory.

Corporate censorship is censorship by corporations, the sanctioning of speech by spokespersons, employees, and business associates by threat of monetary loss, loss of employment, or loss of access to the marketplace.

What?


Censorship of music refers to the practice of editing of musical works for various reasons, stemming from a wide variety of motivations, including moral, political, or religious reasons. Censorship can range from the complete government-enforced legal prohibition of a musical work, to private, voluntary removal of content when a musical work appears in a certain context.

Wait a minute. I thought according to you referring to dictionaries meant you didn't understand your own argument, yet Wikipedia is ok?

Was there even Neo Nazi bands on Spotify to begin with?

I was wrong about the stupidest argument earlier. This one takes the cake.

Spotify's T&C lists the usual "incites violence, offensive, abusive, blah blah blah" as things that aren't supposed to be posted to it.

Also says they may review anything, at any time, or may not review it, and may remove anything they want to remove at any time, for any reason at all, and for no reason at all.

ETA - I coulda sworn I saw something in your comment about skinhead bands violating T&C. Apparently I just had a vision

The argument that choosing what you will allow to happen on your own platform (or login) is censorship is stupid.

Who was making that argument again?

No it's yours (well on loan from ATS) just as Spotify platform is theirs.

Fabulous. In this case, however, they publicly said they removed the Neo-Nazi material for a reason: because they do not 'tolerate' the messages behind it.

Therefore, I can only assume that Spotify tolerates the despicable, offensive, violent misogyny coming from certain rap artists. Some of which, btw, is aimed specifically at white women (like Kanye West).

Rape, murder..women are nothing but *insert misogynistic term here.*

Spotify is just nodding and following an agenda like they have an ethical backbone to stand up for *what's right.*

Nope. They just stand up for what's popular or they are cowering in fear. They have no ethical backbone.

I hear their message loud & clear. Racism/White Supremacy is bad, but misogyny, violence, and racial violence against women are wonderful messages they are happy to spread.

I'll let you dig yourself out of this hole here. Use ATS or some actual platform as an analogous example, then apply that "logic".

The logic is that private platforms can censure their own content. Self censorship is completely different from legal censorship.
