There could be new rules coming

I notice that there is a Private Member`s Bill going through the Commons, under the 10 Minute Rule Bill, that if carried, will require moderators of forums to be responsible for what is posted & to ensure that everybody who posts, knows the rules. I think that this forum is way ahead of the game and has no worries at all on possible future legislation. But there is a lot of really nasty forums out there that could be clobbered. Free speech does not come without certain responsibilities.

Re: There could be new rules coming

I hope this doesn't apply to live chat rooms as well. I moderate a youtube and a twitch.tv chat room for a popular gaming streamer. Twitch is usually pretty chilled but youtube kids can be very toxic, We ban them but they make a new account and are back 2 minutes later.
I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people.... I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort it self out.

Re: There could be new rules coming

Is this the bill Drone https://services.parliament.uk/bills/20 ... orums.html

A Bill to make administrators and moderators of certain online forums responsible for content published on those forums; to require such administrators and moderators to remove certain content; to require platforms to publish information about such forums; and for connected purposes.

I think we do everything this bill requires already.

It seems to go on about forums and groups on facebook. I didn't think facebook had forums.

isn't having a group on facebook who talk to each other a 'forum' ? [Confused.png]

forum - a meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged
