Unlike those platforms that now heavily censor content contrary to leftist political positions (e.g. pro-life, traditional marriage, etc.) -- ThinkSpot will allow free speech / free thought. Content moderation will be in the hands of each user, not decided for them against their wishes.
I hope all efforts like this succeed. Google, Facebook and Twitter (among others) are now aggressively suppressing speech contrary to their politics. We have finally reached 1984 but the "Ministry of Truth" is ran (for the most part) outside of government.

Social media companies often block content and suspend accounts in arbitrary and ridiculous ways, and they deserve protests and boycotts when they do.
Social media companies have a right to set their own standards. They should be answered by personal choices, not governmental force.

The irony is, this is exactly the kind of speech/activity Citizens United protects.
House Democrats JUST passed our Anti-Citizens United bill -- but Mitch McConnell is on a mission to DESTROY it in the Senate. Our highly effective ads are our BEST shot to get this CRITICAL bill passed, but our bank account is D-R-Y!!

It's worse than the Middle Ages.

#LTOD You don't have to give out information just because you're asked. Recently an eye doctor's office gave me a form asking about my race, and my doctor's office asked about my religion. I responded "Decline to answer" or the equivalent. Neither one threatened me or kicked me out.
