"The government of Sri Lanka has temporarily blocked social media services like Facebook and WhatsApp to prevent the spread of misinformation"

I don't think that's a good step to take.
I watch you...

Great point, by the way, ethic.  I think we often take for granted some of the freedoms we have here in America.  If something like that happened here it would be a big deal.  I mean, some people would be like "well, I guess that makes sense, we don't want to spread bad information" but it's such a slippery slope. We have a first amendment for a reason, and this is a perfect example of why!
