Again, I neither proposed a solution, nor implied I wanted to take away “the written word” or social media. I simply wondered, at what point does hate speech lose the privilege of having a platform? Several social media sites specifically lay it out, with some form of, “we will not allow anyone to use our site as a platform for hate speech.” If anything, I’m saying these sites can’t even enforce that one basic rule.
