Holy mackerel! Youtube announces that starting from today it will be removing all new content "that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election". I guess when four years ago half the country was furiously discussing how a foreign interference changed the outcome of the elections it was fine.

I don't especially care who won the US election, but this clamping down on the freedom of expression is repulsive.

And there was a blog article by some Italian developer discussed on HN several days ago, where he vocally opposes the idea of a decentralized web in which you would be free to publish whatever the fuck you want. Because, of course, would somebody please think of the children, plus racists, homophobes and nazis.

The ideal of a carefree unregulated limitless space where you are free to produce and consume whatever you fancy is being methodically torn apart.
