Warning: This Site Contains Conspiracy Theories

Does Google have a responsibility to help stop the spread of 9/11 denialism, anti-vaccine activism, and other fringe beliefs?

In its early days, the Web was often imagined as a global clearinghouse—a new type of library, with the sum total of human knowledge always at our fingertips. That much has happened—but with a twist: In addition to borrowing existing items from its vast collections, we, the patrons, could also deposit our own books, pamphlets and other scribbles—with no or little quality control.

Such democratization of information-gathering—when accompanied by smart institutional and technological arrangements—has been tremendously useful, giving us Wikipedia and Twitter. But it has also spawned thousands of sites that undermine scientific consensus, overturn well-established facts, and promote conspiracy theories. Meanwhile, the move toward social search may further insulate regular visitors to such sites; discovering even more links found by their equally paranoid friends will hardly enlighten them. Is it time for some kind of a quality control system?

Not So Computer-Illiterate, Now

I joined 911.blogger over 2 years ago, when I knew precious little how to get around. I started here, at 911.blogger, and now I can actually hobble around a little bit!

I invite bloggers to visit my home website and view my 9/11 postings, as well as my own board, "Eternity Workshop".

Also, today I posted a Letter To The Editor...local Virginia paper...so I'm still quite active in 9/11 Truth.

Wishing you all well, and thanking you for still being here,

Having observed Digg for a while now, I've noticed one particular blogger who hits home with amazing posts. I encourage you to read some of his bloggs and DIGG them to bump them higher up when people search for news. This person has put up high profile stories that cut the official story to shreds. I "Digged" every single one of his stories, and I hope you like them enough to do the same.

It takes only a matter of seconds and gets at Digg's rather large readership.

I feel it's important to get behind our best and give them some strong encouragement so that they can carry the banner proudly.
Thank you for your time.
