    Sounds good. In this way nasty softporn ads will be curbed on free apps and games.
    And most importantly fake news.

    I don't know man, if we go down this route what is stopping them from taking down sites against government, against powerful people and such. Which is what it will be mostly used for, the cynical part of me thinks.

    as they say,

    "The road to hell is paved with good intentions"

    removing porn, catching terrorists are the usually the go-to examples given for curbing freedom and enroaching on individual privacy

    Not like they're already not blocking a shitload of sites. Some completely unnecessary that too...

    This is what happens when you manage something you know nothing about. Nothing new.

    You dig deep enough into apps like tiktok/like some other chinese apps which people are using, you'll find many disturbing things

    First, any oldies/foggies who have no idea what is the internet - they should not be allowed to say anything about it.
