Could this spell the end of the davelog? Quite possibly.
The House of Representatives is about to vote on a bill that would force online platforms to censor their users. The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA, H.R. 1865) might sound noble, but it would do nothing to stop sex traffickers. What it would do is force online platforms to police their users’ speech more forcefully than ever before, silencing legitimate voices in the process.
Much like the site I've always aspired the 'log to be - fazed, which begat the slorum - we have nothing to do with sex trafficking or anything else illegal here, but the consequences of this bill would make the site prohibitive to maintain. I don't wanna be the cop in this room, and if the law says I have to police and censor, we're all better off by just shutting down. Keep your eyes on this one, it's gonna have a painful impact on the smaller sites that try to keep the old-school web alive.

Superficial placation of the masses while quietly maintaining the status quo?
