    Data mining is a billion dollar business. Have you noticed that you look for something on your computer and for about a week after wards there is advertising for what you were just looking for. Or you said something to someone on face book and the ads starting popping up on your computer. With all the smart teck now available watching everything you do on the computer and listening in on your conversations. It is only one step away from big brother 1984. There is a new movement to bring the law of the right to be forgotten thinking logically, the one thing that would scare the data-mining cabal the most is an articulated right to privacy when using the internet.
    No more data mining for ads. No more algorithms screwing up how we communicate with others on Facebook and others. It's already been adjudicated in Britain. So if this continues to be a thing, think of it way beyond being censored for free speech. Think of it in terms of privacy, too. No more selling personal information. No more dedicated IPs to track your every move. No more email apps that pre-select your possible replies, because no more email being mined.
    Mail could be configured with the same privacy rights as US mail, for example.

    This is mention in the last Q post and I think it would be a great idea, quit spying on the public

    This is not exactly what you are posting about, @Martin Alonzo ; but I think that it does go right along with the same Big Brother control and mentality.
    It appears that more and more, the content that we can access online is being limited to what the government considers an acceptable opinion, and people who post things outside of those boundaries have been cut out of places like Facebook, and are having their Youtube channel shut down and all of their videos disappear.
    One of the people that recently happened to was Mike Adams, the Health Ranger. He is a long ways for being a radical poster, but he does help people to lead a healthier life. He is only one of the people who have been losing their channel, but it seems like they get a few more each time.

    It is all the same thing this censorship would not work if we were anonymous. I follow about five people who have had their channel deleted. They went over to gab, bit chute, and dtube. They are just going after free speech.

    Google also makes it more difficult for websites whose content they disagree with to be found.

    This is a real eye opener but a little scary
