It's not blackmailing though. It's breach of contract. Google could have just pulled funding, but they gave the website the opportunity to rectify the breach.


You're right. Black-mail wasn't an accurate description. Besides, it sounds RACIST!


I prefer the term "rainbowmail". It avoids anyone's feelings getting hurt


But rainbow colors don't include BLACK.


They do if you look at them at night.


Oh boy..now you're equating Black with Night. You'll be getting a visit from BLM if you're not careful.


I like to be an equal opportunity offender.

And I'm British. The only thing I'm careful with is not spilling my beer.

Yeah.

Giving someone the chance to rectify their breach of contract (the contract they agreed to in the first place) is just terrible!


What did the article say? How did it breach the contract?

From the link in the OP.


The email specifically listed an article on The Liberty Conservative's site, stating that the article violated AdSense's policies.


And

Yeah, I read that. But I wanted to know what the article said and how it breached the contract.

Without seeing the taken down article, I couldn't tell you specifically.

I'm guessing they took it down as it was a breach of contract within the above policies.

And remember, it was the websites choice to take down the article. They didn't have to. They chose to because it would keep the money coming in.

You can't read it because it's no longer available because they pulled it.

Google was neutral for a long time.


Google was never neutral.

Their monopolistic practices have driven them into a state where no one knows what they do and the liberties they take to kill competition and make money. In ten years time no one will really know that Google are a tax avoiding corporation because that content would (no doubt) have been de-indexed. You wait and see.

Check out what Wiki uses as sources on this guy:
www.thestranger.com...

en.wikipedia.org...

So Allsup dares to take on the SPLC, omnipotent arbiter of "hate groups" and individuals.
With one's digital history it's ridiculously easy to do character assassination on people.
Worst of all he showed up at the Alt-right rally, therefore he is a Nazi.
One quick label and nobody thinks he should have rights any more.

Look at the ads on that site, and they call him a moral failure?
okey dokey.


Like this.

In May 2017, he expressed support for the views of psychologist Richard Lynn, who has argued that men, whites, and Asians are genetically more intelligent than other groups.[8]

I wouldn't be as upset over the idea of this if it weren't for the fact that Google is such a nearly universal gatekeeper to the internet.

You try doing much of anything without some degree of internet access these days. It is assumed to be nearly universal.

And Google is the nearly universal gatekeeper to it.


So free speech has to be paid?

What are you saying?

If I had an ad for my guitars I wouldn't want them on the kids website either. Is that OK or should I be forced to associate my product with the website?

He could have kept it up and stopped making money from ads.

It's utterly ridiculous isn't it.

It's the same with white supremacist music and Spotify.

They seem to believe that free speech not only means they can communicate their stupid ideas, but that other people should be forced to pay them for doing so.

No surprise that such a nosy company would be run by fascists. The site ought to cut off Google. If enough did, they'd lose their control.

So what this op suggests to me is not that Google is doing something wrong but that this website cares more about money than it's free speech.

Obviously don't really stand behind their opinions do they.

Or is that paraphrasing about IQ which is true?
Asians do score highest along with Jews (which Allsup blames for spreading communism).
I think most will agree those are just facts, uncomfortable they might be.

There's a lot of software that tailors ads to a the viewer, not the website. You'd have to be living under a rock not to know this. Why on earth else do you think so many people can make threads on here complaining about the kinds of ads they get on various sites, even this one? It isn't because those advertisers necessarily flip switches saying which sites they want to be seen on. It's at least as much based on what searches you and I are doing on our own.

When I was car shopping a couple years ago, every single website I visited was inundating me with car ads. Today, those same sites bombard me with various clothing websites or video game ads. But others will complain they're getting things like porn.

Your ads are pretty much personalized.

As uncomfortable as it may be, there is also good evidence that people look for similarity in our mates and that things like IQ tend to be inherited with most children falling within 10 points of their parents. Yes, I've been researching it trying to figure out some issues with our own kid.

Get into the academic research and away from the politics, and it's out there. That doesn't mean there aren't very smart people across all peoples. Just that those basic facts do shape populations.

Ah, so the ads should be forced to have them played on right wing propaganda. I see. Google should be forced to pay people who breach the or contract.

True and also completely irrelevant.

The issue here is the site the adds appear on not the adds themselves.

...They are pretty much a monopoly.


This is my number one issue with Google and how the web now works. Remember in the 90's, how Microsoft was hit hard due to them monopolizing how people use the web due to Internet Explorer? Well, this is very close. Now Google which are the biggest company online. Email, search, youtube, ad-revenue, office tools, online storage, telephone operating systems, maps... They literally have the ability to completely silence those who they want. Can you imagine if someone writes an article using one of Googles online office products that Google doesn't like, so Google creates a bot to search out keywords that they deem politically incorrect and then deletes any files on their servers with those words?

Granted, that hasn't happened yet. YET. I think Google needs to either be broken up or have the government go through every nook and cranny of their operation.
