WORLD WAR WEB ADVISORY #1: ARE YOU AN UNWITTING VICTIM OF INTERNET CENSORSHIP?

1. Emails about topics like Occupy Wall Street, 9/11, the USA Patriot Act, Citizens United v. FEC, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the Protect IP Act (PIPA) and the Enemy Expatriation Act (EEA) are being blocked by Network Solutions, Verizon and other ISPs using Barracuda, Cloudmark Authority and other Internet censorship systems euphemistically referred to as “spam filters”. The 99% can use the same weapon against the 1%: Whenever you receive emails from corrupt corporations – such as those listed at http://contractormisconduct.org – flag them as spam and report them to your ISP.

2. Your Twitter “tweets” about topics like Occupy Wall Street, 9/11, the USA Patriot Act, Citizens United v. FEC, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the Protect IP Act (PIPA) and the Enemy Expatriation Act (EEA) may be blocked from the Twitter search stream without your knowledge. To find out, make a posting with a popular #hashtag, log out of Twitter, clear your “cookies” then close and restart your web browser. Before logging back in, search Twitter – https://twitter.com/#!/search-home – on your #hashtag and see if your tweet is listed. ( Note that these are generalized instructions: Use your judgment. )

3. Your Facebook postings, YouTube comments, other social media posts and online news article and blog comments about topics like Occupy Wall Street, 9/11, the USA Patriot Act, Citizens United v. FEC, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the Protect IP Act (PIPA) and the Enemy Expatriation Act (EEA) may also be blocked without your knowledge. To find out if you are being censored, bookmark your page and log out after you post, clear your “cookies” then close and restart your web browser. Before logging back in, use your bookmark to reload and refresh the page where you posted or commented, and see if your posting is still there. ( Note that these are generalized instructions: Use your judgment. )

4. Although our kleptocracy-chronicling links are still there, our Reddit page – http://www.reddit.com/user/vvvpr – has been blocked, most likely due to corporate fascist pressure being applied from outside or above, although I’m sure they’ll claim it was due to a TOS (terms of service) violation. We will be replicating this link archive elsewhere. And the more of our link archives they take down, the more mirror copies we will put up. Follow us on Twitter @vvvpr for updates.
