Re: <nettime> Facebook censors 50 protest groups in the run up to the royal wedding


And, of course, even if Facebook meet the demands of the
"protest page," the damage has already been done completely;
organising platforms (such as they are) were successfully
disrupted over a critical time.

The issue isn't whether one has the right to use a service
most of the time, but whether someone outside the group can
withdraw the service (or be compelled to), even for a short
time.

I'm tired of this web 20 shit.
