Austria said Wednesday it was considering a law to make it mandatory for big internet platforms to register their users and deprive those behind hate posts of anonymity.

"Unfortunately there have been an increasing number of clear violations, denigrations and humiliations online in the past under the cover of anonymity. 

That's why we need a framework for more responsibility online," Chancellor Sebastian Kurz wrote on Twitter.

The new law would take effect in 2020 and would make it mandatory for platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to register their users, said Gernot Bluemel, minister in charge of EU affairs, art, culture and media.

From selective regulation to total regulation .... it's only a matter of time.  Regulate social media today and everything tomorrow. As long as I have anonymity on-line, I'll continue to warn those users foolish enough to depend on the Spynet. The time is growing near for abondoning the Spynet totally  Who cares whether you're enslaved as long as you continue to send money to greedy or needy people invested in the Spynet. Frankly, I care which is precisely why I am NOT invested in the Spynet and NEVER will be. Digital shortwave, or DRM, is about the only secure, international, reliable, and flexible means of communication in an era of global fascism. Is 666 on your head or hand almost here? Better prepare both spiritually and physically. READ His word, i.e. an accurate translation of the Protestant canon. Do NOT listen to it through an interpreter as the canon is closed and MUST be read from an accurate translation. Try the NLV.

"Only well informed citizens can maintain a meaningful resistance against the powers seeking to destroy us. However, when we get to know the truth we must not let it stop there. Information proves its value only when it's used. Spread the message."
