How easy is it for websites ( including ratemds) to allow freedom of speech without enabling online abuse ?
I feel that in certain situations the anonymity provided by the internet enables bullying.
- for example , while surfing youtube I came across some very hateful and lewd comments . I contacted youtube but they refused to take them down claiming that "they did not violate youtube policies"; they only erased the comments containing the words " kill him" or " kill them all".
- in a similar yet different line, I also browsed several professional websites and felt that some ratings were v malicious or suspicious .
Is it also that the current legislation does not allow website devs to fully control this issue?
Is it that there still is grey area between freedom of speech or abuse?
-I have an interest in this topic but lack the expertise so I would be keen to hear ppl's views.
