Solomon Islands withdraws Facebook ban threat

The government of Solomon Islands has decided to not go ahead with its earlier plan of banning Facebook. The country’s minister of communication, Peter Shanel Agovaka, had accused the social media platform of carrying ’abusive language’ and ’character assassination’ of government ministers, including the prime minister. The government will now work with the platform to address their concerns.

Internet Bill of Rights: [expand] 1: The internet and all of its websites are recognized as a public space. It is impossible to "trespass" on a website. 2: Your data is in the public space, and someone may harvest that data the same way someone may take your picture in public. (Get a VPN and don't enter your real phone number, buddy). 3: You may not be excluded, barred, removed, or in any way denied access to the public space, except in the instance of a conviction of a grievous and terrible crime through an impartial trial by a jury of your peers. 4: Should a governmental body make steps to limit, curb, throttle, or restrict access to the free and open internet, then their leaders shall be subject to banishment from the earth and they will summarily be hurled into space.
