If 230 had a head and I had a revolver, I would empty six shots and reload.

I wouldn't stop there. I'd annihilate the Telecom Act of 1996, repeal the DMCA and bring back the Fairness Doctrine.

Conservatives stood all this shit up because they knew it would enable monopoly control of media, which has always favored conservatives. Now that they've been reminded that progress, by definition, belongs to the liberals they want to corner-case this one tiny segment of it.

The lives of everyone on here would be better without Facebook, Amazon, Google, Youtube, Twitter, Netflix or Microsoft. I would glory in a future where every tech fuck out there had to sing for his supper like a Soviet nuclear physicist.

Fight me.
