'Nobody saw this coming': Arrest in Chinese scholar's disappearance stuns U. of I. community

Mom told me about this over WeChat, and now I'm reading it on news. Just...WTF.

The world is a terrible place.

Honestly, what I'm shocked is that not more people are campaigning that yes, your internet actions have consequences and yes, maybe sites like these forums (and *cough*4chan*cough*) need to actually be regulated and held responsible for not immediately reporting disturbing threads. Enough of this internet privacy bullshit. These kinds of dredges of the internet is what normalizes fucked up behavior. This is what happens when misogyny is allowed and condoned by peers. Everyone who participated has a hand in this problem.

Unfortunately, actually trying to legislate regulations about what can be posted online runs in the murky waters of the First Amendment and censorship, so I have doubts that's workable.

It's probably better to boycott/protest internet providers to get them to set and enforce standards, since ToS enforcement can be as draconian as they feel like.
