Over the last few years We have seen a increase in the active manipulation from Social media companies into their base.
Examples Facebook's increasing hostility towards controversial users and authoritarian bans on ideas.
Reddit' s purge of subreddits that conflicted with their ever changing guidelines.
Twitter targeting hashtags.
Even within IDW the the Community guidelines. Number 1 "Remember that people come to their own truth differently" could potentially be a decisive issue in any regulation of content bases on strong biased or firmly held opinion.
So 1. Are previous platforms salvageable or are they experiencing a slow drawdown out of existence?
Not putting IDW guidelines on blast just a clear example how guidelines and user growth may possibly have a negative impact on experience if ever regulated.
