Not a knock on Facebook, Not a critique of Anonymous….
Just some common sense.
Is Facebook really censoring as the tweet claims, or is this just crying foul while crying wolf?
Imagine you are a restaurant owner. You own and run a nice family oriented bistro, and a couple of drunks come in, cause a scene, start trouble, and demand to be served.
As a private business owner you would be full within your rights to refuse service, ask the miscreants to leave, or call the police to have them removed for trespassing. All this without worry that you have trampled someones right to eat.
Now extend this scenario to Facebook and its ability to remove what they consider patrons they no longer wish to serve. Whether it be drunk diners or a threatening hacktivist group the standard should be the same.
Since Facebook is considered a private company and not a public platform, FB is fully within current acceptable legal standards when choosing whom and what content to serve. Leaving anons tweets like the one in this post to be irrelevant, but alarmist to their cause.
Do you think of Facebook as a private company with its own product to protect, or public platform that should be protected by 1st amendment rights?
Disclaimer: Preventative Measures
Not automagically, but before we write a post that may be construed as being even slightly critical of everyone’s favorite hacktivists, we thought it prudent to take a snapshot of our current vps for easy restoration against an unprovoked attack.
Why not? We have the space, and snapshots are free as long as there is space available.
Solid advice to any blogger writing even the most innocuous critique of any “grey area” groups.
Backup, backup, backup… before you post. There are tons of ways to backup your blog and people have their preferred methods.
Taking a snapshot of the VPS is quick, clean, and easily restored through our service providers web gui. In case the miscreants had more skillz than your average script kiddie.This method makes sure you recover any area the hacker may have had access to on your server.
