Well, it's either this or the website gets shut down in a year by the FBI because we're breaking the law. Take your pick. Those basically seem to be the options.

Lol, its not breaking the law, they violate the law. Away with the lies and excuses to sugarcoat censorship. Nobody's done anything wrong, they shouldn't be abused and banned.

That's what we thought for a while, which is why we allowed it in the first place. But it turns out that's not true. Just like if illegal porn is on the site, we the admins are held responsible from a legal perspective.

It sucks, but it's why we have to make this change. It's either that or saidit gets put at serious risk as the future approaches.

Are you talking about FOSTA? A law that hasn’t been signed yet? The real question is why not a single website on the internet isn’t opposed to this law and is already adhering to it even though the president has yet to sign it.

No the rules holding admins responsible for illegal porn (and other content on what should be a black-box service) have been around for 5+ years at least.
