Apple CEO Tim Cook: Banning ‘Hate, Division’ Is ‘Right Thing to Do’

Apple forums and sales are for telling people what their issue is and if they need repairs or not.

They aren't for politics.

This is why Privately Owned Companies that sell products can and will moderate (delete nonesense contect). that is well within the "telephone company / customer legal agreements". it's not a public chat site. it about the product (and should remain truthful but not overly so necessarily)

public access forum (facebook) is not within the legal agreement because they allow the general public access to chat. the telephone company agreement SPECIFICALLY spells out such sites and prohibits moderators from blocking persons from speaking (unless the person is: online stalking or hacking other users to blacklist them).

blacklisting is generally illegal. even email servers are "not allowed" to maintain blacklists (the rule is renegate servers must be found and shutdown, the IP remains useful - ie incase another internet use gets the IP and then has "issues")

---------------------

Apple sites are about a great computer, not about who can use them or why. Therefore banning hate on Apple's forum is "ok" since it's not the right forum and prevents users having apple questions from finding what they're looking for.

Facebook cannot make the same claim.

for Facebook and Google this is simple

if you don't like the AT&T/Versison telephone company agreements (1990's - which google and microsoft themselves were LIABLE to because they had to sign them)

THEN DON'T RUN A PUBLIC FORUM

telephones are a public access device

can you block telephone calls containing certain political content or hate speech ? (not including spam*)

no, the telephone company does not "block calls"



spam means companies trying to sell stuff using your paid for telephone connection, jamming the device for it's intended purpose, forcing you to see ads when you have no intent of shopping

Does the USA Postal Service open mail or prevent delivery?

No*



no, the law is in general the person mailing agrees not to "abuse any privileges". hillary laws and debt spending newly allow the postmaster to refuse to deliver mail from-to stalkers: yet allow spam. hillary for prison 2020

Apple is also going to stop reporting their sales numbers publicly going forward. I guess Cook doesn't want the stock to be tainted by lower sales due to Cook's idiotic views. Certainly, no replacement for Steve Jobs.
