Former Prez Trump Launches Tech Troll Lawsuit!!! Will He Win???

No, he won't.

But this discussion is important for the KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY if only because we've struggled with the issue of trolling more than any local newsish outlet.

Moreover, it only took us about a decade to discover that EXCLUDING trolls doesn't prohibit free speech, it actually improves and protects the discussion for people who are willing to commit to even a halfway reasonable debate.

And yes, in this political climate "halfway reasonable" represent progress.

But I digress . . .

The argument from Team Trump is actually far more nuanced than most whining from troll crybabies.

Basically, the Prez claims that the biggest tech companies in the nation don't have the same rights as private companies because, he claims, they are monopolies and are in cooperative relationship with the government.

Meanwhile, your drunk uncle is just angry that half of your family has blocked him.

Nobody expects the lawsuit to win or go much further than today's press conference and most regard it as a publicity stunt.

Still, we would honestly like to know what the true believers think if only so we can walk into their biz, home, basement and/or hovel and start telling them how to run things.
