    I blame net neutrality for all this online hate.

    I'm curious Loki, what is your actual stance on this though?

    As would I.

    Any idea if the German authorities do the same to ISIS supporters as they do to the suspected white supremacists?

    Err on the side of free of free speech. Only punish speech when it involves clear threats against individuals or provides details for a specific attack.

    They pretty much do. 4 days ago was the last raid.

    Does that just not get a play in the press? Honest question.

    There has been a reasonable amount of coverage due to it being part of a series of anti-ISIS raids conducted in several countries. The ISIS raids have probably gotten more coverage but doesn't provoke Dread to the same extent.

    Still unclear just how similar these suspects were to the aforementioned white supremacists.

    On this note, the US has made at least 2 ISIS related arrests in the past 2 weeks. Can you say who and why? Cause I didn't see any nationwide coverage of it.

    It does. It's just not high-profile news, same as with every other raid. It gets reported on once and that's about it, unless something new comes to light.

    Seems more like run of the mill think tank lunacy. Think tanks were created by special interests. We revel in them and we shudder in them. Hail to the tanks.

    What a mess. Germany always seems rather hostile to technology companies based outside of Germany. I am hoping the internet hive mind will get annoyed and bombard Germany with WW2 memes
