    Covid misinformation and anti-vaccination discussions

    Due to Google Adsense requirements, and the continued posting of misinformation around the subject of Covid vaccinations and related government mandates, such vaccination misinformation is now not allowed and will be added to Religion and Politics clauses here at AULRO.com. See Section 6C of AAAAAA - New Users Start Here! - Conditions of Access etc

    Any reference/inference/innuendo around misinformation about Covid vaccination or misinformation about covid related matters will be deleted and the Author will be subject to the sites Rules and Regulations.

    Byway of examples of misinformation and myths, we will be referring to the following websites (among others) for reference when making decisions about questionable posts:

    Yeah, the googles are a pretty easy target though - too easy. I think it comes down to what online material the advertisers (do or do not) want their product to be seen beside online. Google manage the placement of those ads, and through their policy, manage the online material the adverts are seen with.

    That depends on how you view freedom of speech. I'm not sure I view Google as suitable arbiters of that.

    Exactly.

    Those saying this is responsible are also those who argue in other threads that a differing opinion is just as valid.

    The reality is that rightly or wrongly people have the right to post their opinion on the Pandemic and itís up to others to decide if itís faff or realÖ

    Having large entities controlling the information feed/format/narrative is a recipe for disaster.

    Provided opinions are not based on misinformation, disinformation or crazy conspiracy theories.

    So this is an economic decision of the forum management to enable a wide range of advertisements to be shown on the forum? What if the opinions are based on science, but not those shared by the reference websites?
