In all the long years I’ve used the internet and of all the weird and bizarre stuff I’ve seen, I haven’t seen any of what you mentioned. I thought such was only available on the dark web? I think what the OP is objecting to is that sites such as this will be affected by these new regulations. It specifically says they will be going after disinformation, now who defines what that is? Oh yeah the government body in charge of enforcing the new rules. Hmm..

I am glad to hear you have not seen them, like most people decent people, but that does not mean they dont exist

2017 Chicago torture incident

Uppsala rape Facebook live streaming incident

now thankfully (for people being exposed to it that is, but not for the poor girl involved) the worst was on the dark web Mr Peter Scully

Even Wiki now has an entry that will only get longer as this is allowed to fester by these companies turning a blind eye to their responsibilty all while holding out both hands and saying "GIVE ME MONEY, every click on the Christchurch video earned Zucker a new holiday home, every click earned Youtube more $$$, but they just cant afford the staff or R+D to prevent this, it may eat into their profit margin.

None of those things you mentioned have made you or anyone else unsafe. None of those rare occurrences means we should give up our freedoms in the off-chance they will happen again. That's why I blame folks like yourself, because those who give up essential liberty for a little safety deserve neither liberty or safety.

Ah, spoken like a true fascist.
You'd have been a real star in the 3rd Reich.
I recommend you get into politics - the timing seems about right for your type.
Be careful not to be around when it comes crashing down, though.

I guess the paedophile farms in UK government don't like the offshore reporting making its way back to the citizens? Or maybe the ridicule for their globalist generate social programs. I heard a joke recently, "when in the uk not the uk?

Not for the last few years.

Maybe they can get that congresscritter from the US to get everybody in the uk to stand on one side of the island and tip it over lol.

Cheers - Dave

Glad you found who to blame, its all my fault
, makes as much sense as you suggesting "essential liberty" is being given up by myself for not wanting, rape, murder and other crimes on youtube or facebook.

I will march arm in arm with others if someones liberty is being quashed by an over zealous government, will you concede then that we dont need Rape and murder on the internet or will you defend the perpatrators liberty to do such an act?

I think you all have missed the most terrifying. Brits can converse directly and unfiltered with Yanks and you KNOW who put that rebellious Brexit idea in their heads.

Merkel has jerked the chain and Parliament has listened and snapped to attention and started barking.

Yes, the internet is whats unsafe.

Everything else is peachy. LoL

Truth is, its those nefarious bastards in Westminster and the House of Lords that are unsafe.

Same swine that play dice from high up in there Ivory Castles with other peoples lives.

No wonder the dirty wrong'yins wish to blame the net after all it gives the people somewhat of a voice, and we can't have that now can we, at least not with the future cards those capricious nonse have in mind to be dealing out in spades to the people.

No one is defending the liberty of rapists and murderers, and it's sick you'd imply such a thing.

If you fear what you see on the internet, don't go on it. But no, you'd defend the sort of censorship found in North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia.

So you wont concede we dont need live rape, live murder and other crimes, you just double down on me like I have some major influence on governments around the world.

Because its ok if you dont look at it, what about the liberties of the people murdered, what about the poor girls liberties of Peter Scully to not have other pedophiles reselling the footage long after she has suffered the crime, do the victims lose their liberties when they have a crime commitied against them or do you just forget about those because we dont see them, ignorance is bliss

How so Uk. How do I sound fascistic to you. Any suggestion of regulations you do not like equals fascism?

Indeed, the internet has become a very unsafe place...for governments and corporations.

All this freedom to espouse and/or listen to different viewpoints from your own country men/women, and from around the world is making them very nervous, and something MUST be done to protect citizens from the truth...er...lies.

What? Concede? I don't have to concede what I never denied or disagreed with.

What the hell are you talking about? We're talking about surfing the internet.

For a start, the implication that the state should regulate what we read and view, and should be the arbiter of truth could be misconstrued as fascistic.

Completly correct you do not have to concede anything, I asked a question you have chose to not answer, I have no further questions for you.

How many homeless people, police cuts, government lies, misdirection, forced austerity in spades, not to mention 100s of 1000s of dead poor, sick, and mentally infirm people is the internet responsible for?

It's not the internet i can see with blood on its hands or crap in its pants.

Because it was an absurd, poorly spelled, loaded question, which implied committing crimes in real life had anything to do with surfing the internet.
