the big players are into the censorship game

If your favorite news site is of alta kvalito, qualitas altus, or maybe even of высокое качество (high quality), and it prods the “status quo”, you might find it dropping off of search engine and social media indexing, which, in effect, means your dear favorite ceases to exist for many.

It is a good time to do an end run around these things by subscribing to good old-fashioned e-mail updates to the sites. Everybody already gets too much e-mail, so you have to “handle” it. Good e-mail providers let you automatically filter certain types of e-mail into folders where you can have a look at your leisure without clogging the inbox, otherwise, deleting those you don’t have time for only takes a moment.

In short, direct e-mail updates can save you from filtering by Google, Twitter, and others. What if your e-mail provider IS Google? You might be OK, still. Who knows. A paid e-mail provider is best, but not many people are into that.

Next thing, even if you know how to sidestep derating by mainline search engines, your favorite sites might fold anyway due to income starvation due to reduction of donors and ad revenue.

Just thinking out loud.

  1. NPR, 24/7 is fairly satisfactory.
