EFF: Facing the Challenge of Online Harassment

Share

Click through to read the entire statement by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) on their stance against online harassment, specifically mentioning GamerGate: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2015/01/facing-challenge-online-harassment

Excerpt:
“Unfortunately, instead of strengthening commitment to combating harassment, that financial risk would likely instead devastate online communities. Faced with a risk of such liability, many companies will choose to expel all forms of controversial speech from their platforms, including legitimate anger and political organizing. If, for example, any mention of Israel and Palestine sparked a barrage of harassment and then legal claims, how long would it be before service providers would ban mention of that political situation? When a magnet for harassment like Gamergate takes place on a social platform, will that platform’s operators seek to uncover who the wrongdoers are—or will they simply prohibit all from speaking out and documenting their experience?”
