Here we go again: US govt tells Facebook to kill end-to-end encryption for the sake of the children


Re: Forget the kiddies

"If however the bullying followed me home and was essentially 24/7 then I doubt I would be here now."

I'm lucky, I'm an adult. It's not a legal requirement for me to use Facebook, so I can simply make the choice not to use it if I don't like what I encounter there.

I feel sorry for all these kids whose parents force them to go online, the way my parents forced me to go to school (where the bullies were).

I would prefer to live in a world where using Facebook and Snapchat and Twitter and Whatsapp and Instagram and (etc. etc.) were a CHOICE, because then kids could simply opt out of that kind of bullying. I can but dream.
