Re: Cancel Culture

Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and all the others, and The Local which owns this forum are for-profit businesses. As such, they set what they provide, und which conditions, and explicitly reserve, for themselves, the right to stop providing.

By signing up, one agrees to their Terms and Conditions. Typically, those include not using the platform to do crime, promote crime or to encourage others to become criminal. Whoever breaches those, risks being excluded.

Moreover, those Terms and Conditions often contain a clause saying, more or less, that the user agrees to the fact that the platform can, at their sole discretion whenever they decide to, block posts or delete profiles. It's not as if users have a right to use the platform at all. None of us does. And there is certainly no right to post any which content a user chooses, without regard to the consequences.
