Re: Divided We Fall - Chapters 21 - Conclusion

I was intrigued by French's analysis of Section 230. I did not realize it links the ability to moderate speech on a platform without being liable for, e.g. its truth. That is indeed vital.

I still think we can impose some responsibility to take down defamatory or inflammatory material whose truth is dubious or known false, when such material is challenged. It still doesn't prevent the viral lie, but there should be tracing mechanisms available that can reel most of the copies back in.
