Re: Locking down malicious actions closer to the source
This is a messy area indeed - cleaner but whose idea of clean is the one that applies.   And who polices that clean environment (who makes that decision based upon what criteria).   We are getting close to State and One thought for all.  i believe it should be a wide open Dodge City for free speech with all the hell that embraces.  The price of a free internet.  There are always bad users and actors, always will be.   You cannot legislate stupidity but it is rampant.  (See Congress LOL).  Slippery slope indeed.
