What You Do and Say Offline Can Get You Banned From Websites and Apps

Amazon has hired a law firm to conduct investigations into users’ conduct on Twitch and elsewhere. How companies reconcile user activities on sites other than their is often only described vaguely in their rules.

This isn’t content moderation, this is conduct moderation,” said Corynne McSherry, legal director at the digital rights group Electronic Frontier Foundation, who said she was concerned about platforms that struggle to effectively moderate content on their own sites extending their reach.

“Our team is looking across the web at a number of different platforms and channels where we know that our creators have a presence…to understand as best as possible the activities that they’re engaging in there,” said Laurent Crenshaw, policy head at Patreon, a site where fans pay subscriptions for creators’ content.

Big Tech is watching.

At the apex of the pyramid comes Big Brother. Big Brother is infallible and all-powerful. Every success, every achievement, every victory, every scientific discovery, all knowledge, all wisdom, all happiness, all virtue, are held to issue directly from his leadership and inspiration. – George Orwell, 1984

U. S. Government Considering Nationalizing Covid-19 Vaccines

Changes Are Coming Fast to the Modern Church in America

In early March Beth Moore resigned her membership in the Souther Baptist Convention. Moore called President Trump's sexual exploits with women in the “Access Hollywood” tapes "the shock of my life. This wasn’t just immorality,” she said. “This smacked of sexual assault.” Respect for women and others important to Moore. In excerpts form "A Letter to My Brothers" by Beth Moore, she write" "I’m asking that you would simply have no tolerance for misogyny and dismissiveness toward women in your spheres of influence. I’m asking for your deliberate and clearly conveyed influence toward the imitation of Christ in His attitude and actions toward women. I’m also asking for forgiveness both from my sisters and my brothers. My acquiescence and silence made me complicit in perpetuating an atmosphere in which a damaging relational dynamic has flourished. I want to be a good sister to both genders." Moore also holds that many within the Southern Baptist Denomination are "quick to teach submission are often slow to point out that women were also among the followers of Christ (Luke 8), that the first recorded word out of His resurrected mouth was “woman” (John 20:15) and that same woman was the first evangelist. Many churches wholly devoted to teaching the household codes are slow to also point out the numerous women with whom the Apostle Paul served and for whom he possessed obvious esteem. We are fully capable of grappling with the tension the two spectrums create and we must if we’re truly devoted to the whole counsel of God’s Word." "As a woman leader in the conservative Evangelical world, I learned early to show constant pronounced deference – not just proper respect which I was glad to show – to male leaders and, when placed in situations to serve alongside them, to do so apologetically." And now Moore is gone. Will other women follow? Will younger women seeking to find a church that teaches the Word of God avoid Southern Baptist churches because of a perceived bias towards males and against females? In the same way the United Methodist Conference seems headed for a split over same-gender marriage, SBC appears to be dividing over opposing-gender roles. Is this the will of God or work of Satan? One thing is clear, changes are coming fast to modern church in America.
