So what do you think about Senator Lieberman's request that Google add a terrorist label to Blogger?
OldHippie 2 years ago
ITWorld's front page had an article about Joe Lieberman sending a request to Google that it add a terrorist flag so that readers can label content as "terrorist" on Blogger. The Senator, of course, claims that it's for the good of the country to do so, and unless Google adds terrorist flags, it is "adversely affecting our ability to counter violent Islamist extremism..." http://www.itworld.com/cloud-computing/227991/senator-lieberman-asks-goo...
How do you feel about this? Do you think Americans can't sleep well at night unless we label speech as terrorist or non-terrorist? Are we going to have to be careful of what we say on other blogs and message boards to make sure that we are not mistakenly labeled terrorist bloggers or posters?
