sorry, i have no clue about topix, because it's completely unknown over here. but am i understanding correct, 125,000 posts a day and no obligation to supervise what's going on for anyone? how can that legally fly? i mean, how ridiculously low are the duties of a website operator in the u.s?
freedom of speech, that's all good. but what about personal rights? right to one's own picture, legal defense options in case of being slaughtered by a hate mob?
they took fees for accelerated processing time for abusive posts. what a crazy legislation where such practices are even thinkable. i'm really astonished. no chance a website like topix could legally exist in other western countries. would be sued into oblivion within days. with good reason.
