Hey Factory Fans!

Well, this is a particularly sad day for fans in the European Union, as they just voted on legislation that will make it nearly impossible for to get flagged on the EU’s Internet for some trivial thing or another.  It’s more complicated than that, but the long and short of it is, if your website has even a whiff of copyrighted material on it, forget about it ever being seen there.  This is a move that will greatly censor the Internet there, so if we fail to pop up there after January, you’ll know why EU fans.  We shall see.

Oh, I was on Superhero Speak today.  My interview is in the last third or so.

At Super Frat, it’s Ten Things You Shouldn’t Do While Virtue Signalling.

New Roxy stuff at Validation.

And the Quote of the Day is from George Orwell:

“The chief danger to freedom of thought and speech at this moment is not the direct interference of … any official body. If publishers and editors exert themselves to keep certain topics out of print, it is not because they are frightened of prosecution but because they are frightened of public opinion. In this country intellectual cowardice is the worst enemy a writer or journalist has to face. … The sinister fact about literary censorship in England is that it is largely voluntary.”
