Do you ever feel like the internet is a hostile place? And I'm not just talking about the trolls. I mean, there are trolls everywhere on the internet, and it's not always easy to ignore them. But sometimes it's even harder to ignore the other stuff: the racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia... all that stuff that makes you wonder if maybe humans aren't as evolved as we think we are. But does it make you want to leave the internet? Do you want to quit using social media altogether? And if so—do you think that's really an option? Or do you think there's some way we can get around this problem?

Hate speech is a big problem, and content moderation is the way we're going to fight it. The internet has given us a great platform for expression—but it's also created space for hate speech, which can be very harmful. That's why we need to be vigilant about content moderation. We need to make sure that all of our platforms are free from hate speech and other harmful behaviors so that everyone feels safe using them. This article https://chekkee.com/hate-speech-regulation-in-different-countries/ does a great job of explaining how content moderation works, and why it's so important for the future of the internet.
I don't think it's a good idea to pay attention to hate speech on the internet. If you do, you'll just get hurt. I think we should all focus on the positive things people have to say and not worry about the negative ones.
