Does Merkel Know The Difference Between Meaningful Critique And Hate Speech?


This is not a news, Facebook has been criticized by German politicians for not censoring Facebook comments, or for not giving the right tools to censor comments on the own fan pages at Facebook. Currently all known German politicians battle with the ever-increasing amount of negative comments on their pages, and while it’s true, you can find hate speech, the majority of the comments are not hateful but written by people with justified worries and question. When Merkel talked with Zuckerberg, she probably didn’t ask for better moderation tools on Facebook pages to be able to delete the hate speech … Continue reading Does Merkel Know The Difference Between Meaningful Critique And Hate Speech?

A Few Small Blog Changes


Back then when I started my blog, I had no idea why I did so, I also had no idea how far I would go. It’s out of question today, I like blogging pretty much. But sometimes you need to take a look if you still like how you did set your blog up. I made some minor changes now. I had sub menus below the header. That made the menu look crowded. I removed the sub menus and do now only show links to the main categories of the blog. I had quite a lot of internal links in … Continue reading A Few Small Blog Changes
