How will Holla Forums deal with the U.S. gutting CDA section 230 protections?

The House of Representatives is about to vote on a bill that would force online platforms to censor their users. The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA, H.R. 1865) might sound noble, but it would do nothing to stop sex traffickers. What it would do is force online platforms to police their users’ speech more forcefully than ever before, silencing legitimate voices in the process.

The House Rules Committee is about to approve a new version of FOSTA [.pdf] that incorporates most of the dangerous components of SESTA. This new Frankenstein’s Monster of a bill would be a disaster for Internet intermediaries, marginalized communities, and even trafficking victims themselves.

congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/1865

The bill changes section 230 of the CDA, the law that protects website owners from liability for what their users post, to carve out an exception for instances of human trafficking. Site owners can be held liable and subject to a criminal fine or imprisonment for not more than 20 years.

WHAT THIS MEANS IN PRACTICE IS THAT ALL IT WOULD TAKE FOR A WEBSITE TO BE SHUT DOWN AND ITS OWNER ARRESTED IS A FALSE FLAG OPERATION OF SPOOKS ENGAGING IN HUMAN TRAFFICKING. ALL U.S. SITES WOULD BECOME FORCED TO IMPOSE EXTREMELY HEAVY-HANDED MODERATION AND CENSORSHIP OR SHUT DOWN ENTIRELY, Holla Forums INCLUDED.

THIS BILL HAS STRONG BIPARTISAN SUPPORT AND WILL LIKELY PASS UNLESS HEAVY RESISTANCE CAN BE ORGANIZED QUICKLY AND ON A LARGE SCALE.

Voting on the House Floor is scheduled for THIS TUESDAY. Start spreading this information on as many websites as you can before it's too late. If you know anyone with a large audience try and get them to spread the word. If this bill becomes law then it's GAME OVER for free speech on the internet.

And as for it affecting the site. Meh, the mods already moderate whatever the fuck they feel like moderating, even if it's not against the rules.

I really don't think this law is that big of a deal and almost entirely sure it won't get passed. Do you honestly think that Jews want to regulate sex trafficking/the pornographic market? (((da​tamin​ing))) No they want the exact opposite. Just look up who's behind the sexual liberation movement. Also you might want to look at that amendment with closer scrutiny: congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/1865/text
The savings clause. If worse goes to worst, we can just ban and make it very clear in our global rules, that it is prohibited to post pornography.

i support the 100% banning of all images of women
women use their physical appearance and the implied possibility of sex to manipulate stupid ass cucks. getting rid of images of females will eliminate a bad element here.
