So speaks the flailing EU, the sinking GB, the nanny states of Australia, or the irrelevant nation of Canada ? or maybe you hail from the greater significance that is Central or South America ? Maybe you are posting from the land of wine and honey that is greater Africa ? There is no country or region at this point, or really at any point in history that is not suffering from some sort of failure or another, be it racial inequality, economic instability, privacy issues, global climate change, etc.
But of course the US and 'north' China are the joke...

People biatch and complain when FB allows links to so-called hate speech, or porn but they also biatch and complain when they block other content. FB has a right, and duty to verify and vet links and edit content posted to their service in the same way a news organization 'should' verify sources prior to broadcasting it. I think they deserve to be applauded for taking the brief time and spending a little effort checking things out before restoring access. It shows a bit of responsibility and accountability lacking in many social networking tools and quite a few news services.

I switch seasonally from a town in the SF bay area that has multiple options in ISP's and a very fast home service of 100mbps to Yuma AZ where I can barely get 15mbps from the only show in town for more money. While it pales in comparison to Gbps service just the addition of another competitor drove down the cost and increased bandwidth in the existing Comcast offerings. BTW I've mentioned before I love Astound/Wave communications, and TWC/Charter to be known as Spectrum communications SUCKS donkey genitalia.
