Petition: Repeal Section 230 of the United States Communications Decency Act
"Cyberbullying is an infinite number of times worse than in-person bullying because hundreds of thousands, millions, or more peple get to read and see by video the ugly and hurtful things that are being said to you or about you - even if what is said is untrue.
Many children are commiting suicide as a result of online posts and many adults are losing their jobs as a result of false information that is published online. It is time for Congress to address this issue in a separate bill and remove the immunity given to website owners/publishers who allow defamatory posts to appear online at their websites.
Only website owners/publishers have control over what their websites show. With this law, they can (and often do) refuse to delete libelous content in forum posts, ListServ posts, or any other "interactive computer services" as described in the law."
