    Does this mean our EU buddies aren't allowed on the eof?

    That law passing doesn't necessarily mean the death of memes.
    You could, for instance, make a site that only visible to Tor users.
    That way, there would be no way for companies to find these sites using regular spiders.
    Another alternative would be to encrypt images to gibberish, then use some kind of add-on that decrypts them.

    Because i made the post, I know its not going to change a goddamn thing, do you really think that any one would take the time to censor memes in europe ? do you think any government in the world has the time money or resources to do this.

    So to reply to the OP you Quote me ? sure that will get his attention

    You see, that's the problem. They're going to use some kind of image AI.
    Though it will have a large impact on the performance of sites though.

    It was mostly satire. I am, however, very very worried that this will aid in ending free speech in the eu, which is a very dangerous thing for the government to do.

    If the internet went on lockdown tomorrow, by the time Sunday rolls around someone would have created a new network where such bullshit didn't exist would be set up. You can crackdown all you like people are gonna talk and do whatever like they always have. Look at prohibition in the USA that worked well didn't it.

    As Billy Joel once sang, " they turned our power down, drove us underground, but we went right on with the show."

    I won't argue with that, but thanks for the insult, I'll be sure to call out politicians more often.

    Whoever is responsible for writing up that law can die in a fire for all I care. I would love to see them try and enforce that law lol.

    Whatever you think of him, we're talking memes and censorship, not politics
