So the guidelines I wrote about last week went into effect, with out any real public input that I could see. I’m so mad about it. These rules are bad for the internet. Now these rules are being used to threaten administrators of Whatsapp groups, as if they have any control over what people say in those groups, or should be criminally liable for that content. It’s complete bullshit. This will have an adverse effect on freedom of speech, mark my words
I find it annoying that the NCIC is going about threatening the little people when they have failed to prosecute the real threat to peace in the country, the politicians with actual influence.
While we have tepid assurances for the Director General of the CA that the internet will not be shut down we do have threats to shut down social media from the NCIC (see video). I’m preparing for the worst.
