I'm just a simple guy, but it seems like an easy solution to all of this would be

A] Big Tech just shouldn't block anyone from posting whatever they want.

B] There shouldn't be any "report" features. Only "block". If you don't want to see something someone posted, block them. If there's something on TV that I don't want to watch, I just change the channel - I don't embark on some big campaign to make sure it never appears on tv again. Same with social media. Don't cry to your fucking tech mommy, just block what you don't want to see and move on.

Nuh, the only solution is to break this cartel apart. They have a monopoly, and worse than any other kinds of monopoly, they have a monopoly over the flow of INFORMATION. It seems that their platforms are free and accessible, but you know what they say, when a service is free, YOU are the product. If they can't be broken, then find a way to diminish their influences, expose the truth that only a few of trolls and bots generating 90% contents, stop paying so much attention on the tweets from those blue check marks, and promote alternatives like Rumble and Parler.

It's not a monopoly.

It's an oligopoly, which is harder to break up and has more staying power, and is also more destructive.

Well the way I see it, although they are collectively called Big Tech and they share the same marching order, they are intertwined monopolies with different specialties in different fields. You have a Twatter on microblog, Fakebook on social network, Instagross on photos, Goolag on search engine, Screwtube on videos. That's what I meant by monopoly. Dissolve any one of those would greatly weaken their power. It would make a good example for the rest of them.

another simple solution; you want to do business in some place like Europe or china where their laws cause more restriction then ours then they can build their own European version of things with those rules and then their country can block the good version and let them and their citizens work out the details of why they can't have nice things...

Just because its illegal to call the head of china pooh bear over there doesn't mean those restrictions should apply everywhere, enough of this lowest common denominator dimwit bullshit.

I understand how cost savings work but these are also the people who are all about having everyone else pay their fair share and "do more"; so its win-win they will have to start by hiring a metric fuck ton of people to run multiple product lines. Too bad.
