COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.


In 2015, Wired magazine quoted Cagle (wired . com/2015/06/facebook-real-name-policy-problems) saying:

By controlling the identity of the speaker with this policy, Facebook has the effect of both reducing speech and eliminating speakers from the platform altogether. This is a particularly concerning move to the ACLU because forums like Facebook serve as the modern-day equivalent of the public square for a lot of communities.

Let's see if he applies that to Twitter and the Alt Right.

.@mattshuham: IAC, it's odd that @matt_cagle won't speak out given what he said before: Will you ask him?

@24AheadDotCom_ @Matt_Cagle I had to find the article you're quoting, but it seems like a very different case. IAC, I wouldn't have banned.

.@Matt_Cagle: when will #ACLU speak out against #Twitter banning #AltRight just over ideology?

@24AheadDotCom_ @Matt_Cagle presumably because that ideology is de facto fascism, they won't, nor should they!
