Do you remember the times when elected politicians would defend the rights of the many against the interests of the few? Me neither.

@jwildeboer Efforts by the French & UK governments to tax the FAANG group of companies punitively plus the upload filter issue will wreck the Internet faster than the lack of net neutrality in the USA. These are the wrong sorts of external pressures to make and may well cause the much-feared two-tier Internet (EU, everybody else). Too many smaller US websites have given up on figuring out GDPR and just geo-block EU-based users now. What if a big fish did that too?

@alpacaherder I actually welcome websites geo blocking the EU based on their unwillingness to protect their users. When they don’t know nor care about all the trackers and stuff they force on their users, I don’t want to visit their site anyway. Thanks, !
