If my "perspective" counters yours, should I have the right to remove yours?
If an American Internet website creator allows public access without registration (newspaper, social, journal, blog, whatever) then the 1st Amendment applies and they have no right to restrict what visitors to their sites post.
This should be obvious from the fact that a Christian baker was fined (put out of business?) for refusing to bake a homosexual, a lifestyle diametrically opposed and forbidden by the Christian faith (Lev 18:22, Lev 20:13).
A better name for "Perspective" is "BigBrother", for that is exactly how it will be used. The current massive suspensions and cancellations on Twitter and YouTube demonstrate that very well. Google, Twitter and Facebook only wants an echo chamber that repeats socialist dogma.
Where are all those shortsighted investors now.

Hey, just because you think it's a long walk to the grocery store, doesn't make that any more of a absolute yardstick.
Tell that to a quadriplegic. The back yard may be closer than the grocery store but that still doesn't mean he's gonna get there any time soon. Without the wheelchair and a motor or someone to push, all distances greater than zero are out of reach.
I guess nobody else noticed that Netflix recently started supporting downloadable video.
I'd guess that they had to pinky-swear to content providers that they would make some effort to educate users on security, help them secure their computers and devices and networks, etc. etc. etc.
SAP cant scale worth shit, we recently added 4000 people in the call center and it took SAP 8 months to "scale" the stupid garbage pile they call software to handle it.
Then when we wanted to put in a system in the RMA database to track repair RMA data, the SAP experts said it was impossible, so one of the IT guys wrote the system we needed in PHP with a Open source SQL backend. he has a MITM box that will grab info from SAP and then spit it to the RMA server. when you do a query on the RMA page you get the full history of the device from manufacture date, to ship date, to who, to all repairs and even Tech support calls on the device.
SAP was unable to deliver this. Because SAP is really shitty.
I would also point out that the old web comic I know about is I PhD, running since 1997 with almost 2000 strips.
I guess in this post factual world, no one will care.
My opinion is that since around 2000, it has been a renesance in newspaper style cartoons as the barriers to entry are non existent and for those who got in early, quality was all that mattered. Even late comers, like XKCD do much better by some metrics than early entries and popular sites like SMBC.
