Which sort of sums up the whole thing, at least in my mind. Anyway, the LATimes includes this little bit o’ Law that kinda settles the whole thing:
Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act provides internet services with immunity from liability for material posted by their users.
I recommend reading the article in the LATimes, it’s short, sweet, and snarky as hell.
