    Only regarding the tiny bit of information that DU has disclosed

    I don't understand how this is supposed to work at all tbh.

    It would no longer be possible to run any discussion forum, comment section, messageboard etc unless all messages go through a moderation queue. Which means you cannot run internet forums in Australia at all. How does this work with Youtube and the millions of comments under the videos that violate some court ruling somewhere in the world?

    A solution imo can only be technical, make a forum that isnt public, uses a passward to login, IP lock the accounts and a TOS that requires member not to use legal action against the owners, and leave the forum instead. Some government snitch could still sniff into the forum but it would have no chance in court, because the nature of the discussion is private.

    A pretty fucked up country, if their "high court" makes rulings that are impossible to follow tbh. They might as well sue the Australian country on the whole because it is legally responsible for the air that the blasphemous messages traverse through.

    But it seems you have a period of two weeks to remove the offending post after receiving notice?

    It would be interesting to know if you are obliged by law to disclose the information of the offending poster to the complaining party.

    It certainly seems that way.

    The law is the law, DU will have to do what he needs to stay out of jail. Whatever the solution is, it's better to preempt than postpone.

    Yeah, but what is the law exactly now?

    As far as I understand it the recent verdict is relevant for defamation cases (not "hate speech").

    So if some asshat feels now defamed on the codex and complains about it to DU, he is better advised to delete the offending post immediately and disclose the offending users details to avoid getting himself into hot water.

    If the data will be of use to the complaining clown is another question.

    In any case, if you tend to share your strong opinion of the usual lolcows and sjws on the codex I think it's advisable to use a VPN and maybe not your real email account from now on (depending on where you live).

    Worry not, citizen! The law is always right! Do not resist, citizen!

    The law, for example, will soon require all individuals to have a vaccine passport on their person at all times, as well as their portable booster shot kit.
    In addition, all citizens will be mailed a set of always online monitoring equipment (made by Amazon, bundled with Alexa!) for free (costs will be covered through taxes, but it's free, don't worry) so that we can ensure they maintain safe social distancing and mask-wearing protocols at home.

    Voice not your opposition! Do not debate or attempt to converse regarding the matter, or -heaven forbid- circumvent it. Remember, citizen:
    THE LAW IS THE LAW

    Just keep operating as normal, if or when someone finally figures out how to use the Australian legal system against DU, then shut the site down.

    Alternatively, migrate the site somewhere else.

    Considering latin alphabet isn't native alphabet of Bulgaria, it's like asking a person who is not native English speaker to write without grammar error. You are barking at wrong tree.

    I think we might have to do something about auto alt identification routine.

  14. Cyrillic doesn't have different punctuation marks, dumbass. And plenty of people whose native language isn't English speak without sounding like illiterate goblins. It's a matter of IQ, or lack thereof.

    When people, uneducated Americans in particular, criticize your English in an argument it's usually the absolutely last straw. I bet if a lady in a foreign language begs him to have sex he would not even know how to say yes.

  18. What argument? What uneducated? What Americans?

    What does this have to do with retardomat being an illiterate moron? And again, putting a space after a comma isn't specific to English. Stop hiding behind your ESL victimhood.

    I agree on the last one, I just don't agree with your motives.

    Also you are an alt and a dumbfuck and those people are usually cowards and mischievous scum.

    Here we have a glowing example of the typical Starbucks commie in the Guevara shirt who has no trouble attacking the proletariat when it serves him.
