Of course you can talk about this - but we are responsible for what is published here. And where UK court cases and judges are involved we will always err on side of discretion.

Icons have never gone away and certainly are displaying on desktop.
Unsure about mobile view - i don't think the functionality to add an icon was there, ever. I have no recollection if the visibility of icons via m.thereg was ever a thing. Will double-check but we will want to ensure same functionality as we gradually switch to full-responsive.
The immediate counter-argument is blind auditions for orchestras. Evidently, this eliminates gender bias: https://www.theguardian.com/women-in-leadership/2013/oct/14/blind-auditions-orchestras-gender-bias.
Also in white collar jobs, blind screening aims to eliminate all selection biases, including age and education. So it means that older (probably more expensive) men who went to less prestigious universities or who did not attend university at all are not eliminated at the first hurdle.
Free speech is not absolute and has never been, anywhere, even in the USA - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_free_speech_exceptions/
Britain was a prime driver and major beneficiary of the Atlantic slave trade. Calling it, or any actor in this trade, a "good guy" demonstrates a decidedly partial representation of history
Laura Southern is an odious provocateur, who engineers shit like this: "On February 24, Southern was photographed outside Five Guys restaurant in Luton town centre alongside two other activists, displaying posters which stated “Allah is a Gay God” superimposed against a rainbow pattern."
I'm sure she was delighted by all the attention. Good for ratings.
The only wonder is that Facebook took so long to shut down their account. Britain First's founders are fascist thugs who are in jail for harassing innocent people and their families, who they wrongly suspected of rape. Their violence endangered the lives of others. Their hate speech encourages others to violence.
BTW Your call to exterminate minorities (but fudging this by conflating with rapists and paedophiles) is grotesque. There is nothing moderate or compassionate about Laura Southern, who is a Katie Hopkins troll but more dangerous, Jihadis who return to the UK are not welcomed with open arms. And If the "majority is being forcefully silenced", how were they allowed a vote on Brexit, and to vote in favour of leaving. Where were the liberals?
Hate speech is not free speech, Paul 135 . It is a tool to oppress others.
Being civil to others, regardless of race, class, gender, sexuality, religion, age - and fear about your own circumstances - is a sign of moral strength, not of weakness.
And those ultra-right snowflakes who want the freedom to oppress others? It is never a bad thing to refresh our memory of Popper's Paradox of tolerance.
Thanks for the feedback. That is definitely third-party served by Google - this means that there won't be anything for us to check.

Kieren has written and researched articles about ICANN, internet infrastructure and internet governance for more than 15 years. He worked for ICANN for three years - and later founded an events company that ran a couple of successful events on internet governance. Feel free to disagree with him, but Kieren knows what he is talking about. As for the three articles that you agree with and think we published and which may have been written by someone else who, if it wasn't Kieren, is not an expert on ICANN, internet infrastructure or internet governance....
