Search Engine and Social Media gods-our 4th Branch of Government
Today I did searches on my Domain and on my hashtag, America-in-2020.com and america2020us. Each only had a very few of my pages and the only way to see then is to “quote the search” “America-in-2020.com”. For the most part they are old pages. This site has been around for 3 years. The traffic I get is from other sources, mainly twitter.
America needs laws to bring fairness to the web and security. Google and Bing have shut out anyone they disagree with. Bing’s Smartscreen is constantly show my sites in the Smartscreen Red alert or warning. There must be a class action suite here somewhere that we can bring against Google and Microsoft. I have filled in the Smartscreen help 30 times to no avail. I collect Name and IP for spam control only. They want me to pay for cert and secure site according to what the help page says. I have no way of knowing. I never get a response.
I have built websites and supported both Microsoft and Google since their inception. And this is how they turn on the average joe. There is no free internet. This website and several others I do for free. I have given up trying to go with the flow. It’s all about profit, profit with our data and nothing is return. The alphabet and the bing has taken over and we need to get back to a free internet.
I see value in secure sites and certs. But on my retirement income, I would be broke. I know they don’t give a damn, but our country has strived on equal protection under the law, and law is needed for that equal protection.
What really bothers me, we had a fourth branch in our government under the Obama administration, our Social Media and Search Engine gods. I hope Trump place a balance on these entities so we all can benefit. After this election, we all know there is a bias towards profit far beyond our imagination. Government must be involved more forcefully.
The war has only begun. The search engines and social medias ought favor no one and be equal to all in opportunity. The cost of having a secure network ought be covered by those who are profiting or the government, not the individual or business just starting out. And freedom of the press and speech in truth ought to be a given not the PC correctness that is so prevalent today.
When I speak of this I speak of this #usCyber Security needs to be improved emencely and as I say in other articles here we need to protect #americafirst with borders and gateways.
