⚧ Jacquii: Kween of Hearts ⚧

I do not think that is realistic. For a small forum you are right. But try keeping track of thousands of posts a month, as a hobby. If you run a forum large enough then you know that you will never be able to control everything that members post.
Unfortunately - I agree with both of these sentiments.
And it's actually surprising really. When I first read the thread - I thought to myself that this is some straight, big-government owned, GOP partisan ****. The 97-2 vote really defines this piece of legislation as overwhelmingly supported, to the point of being the most amicable piece of legislation the US Congress has passed in the past decade. But at the same time I'm shocked. When I read the gist of the legislation - it almost reads as a supplement of sorts to the extremely partisan "Net Neutrality" stance that the majority of democrats disagree with. This legislation seems to fly in the face of Net Neutrality. Doesn't it?
Not only that - but it seems a legislation that makes the "small" guy/ hobbiest forum owner liable for things that only the "big guys" only would be able to defend in a court of law. I'm confused actually... Does anyone else see the hypocrisy and/or contradiction as concerns the democratic party voting for this legislation BUT at the same time being FOR the concept of net neutrality? How can you be for net neutrality - but want to penalize the "small" guy for content posted by his/her users? IDK... Just seems a confused hodgepodge of a piece of legislation if you ask me...
