Social media can often become a rather nasty place in many ways. This can be particularly problematic in situations where societal norms might end up being pushed back, such as in the case of tall models, etc. To better understand this, Australian researchers conducted a test with more than 90 female students. This test involved them looking at a few photos of plus size models, and each photo had positive, negative, or neutral feedback.

It turns out that when test participants saw that an image already had negative comments, they ended up being more likely to post something negative as well. Keep in mind that they may have posted a comment anonymously, which likely encouraged them to say what they really meant. About 40% of comments under images that already had negative comments ended up being negative as well. While only 4% of comments left under posts that only had positive comments were negative.

All that being said and now out of the way, it’s important to note that this research illustrates the type of positive feedback loop that can be created in the echo chambers of social media. People are very influenced by what they see online, and if they notice other people behaving in a certain way, it can cause them to feel empowered to behave the same way. Anonymity is also something that allows people to often be downright mean online, something that really needs to change. The internet is a wonderful thing, but social media can sometimes bring out the worst in people and this research has just made it even more clear that something like this is happening right now.

SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin (AP) – The latest news from The Ryder Cup, the golf showdown between the United States and Europe (all time CDT):

2:20 p.m.

Give the Europeans another victory in the Ryder Cup social media battles.

Their latest entry is called Out of context, an animated video that combines audio from gamers and TV presenters with offbeat cartoons of things that weren’t really happening when those words were said. It is cheeky and clever, in fit in with most The productions of the Europe team at the Ryder Cup.

And while that might not show every player in the best light, Jon Rahm says it’s appropriate because “when you’re in a non-judgmental environment you’re not afraid that anyone who posts on Instagram, you can let go a bit and be vulnerable, and that’s the fun part of things like that.

The Ryder Cup kicks off Friday morning at Whistling Straits, where the defending European champions are more than a 2-1 underdog.

———

10:45 a.m.

The weather is fine in Whistling Straits, where the European team are on the course for their final practice before the start of the Ryder Cup.

Lee Westwood and Matt Fitzpatrick were among those who bundled up Thursday morning and started in 55 degrees Fahrenheit (12 degrees Celsius) with a northwesterly wind blowing at 20 mph.

The pairs for the opening matches on Friday morning with alternate shots will be revealed during the opening ceremony on Thursday evening.

The United States have lost nine of the last 12 games against Europe, although Tony Finau has said he sees a culture change within the United States squad, largely because six players are making their first appearances in the United States. the event.

Friday’s winds are expected to be up to 25 mph, which would only add difficulty to a link-like course along Lake Michigan, one of the most difficult these players face.

Some good news possible: The rough on the course is kept lower than the average stop of the lap: “Pretty similar to what you would find on your local golf course,” according to maintenance manager Chris Zugel.

Text size:

New Delhi: The Madras High Court on Thursday reiterated an order made by the Bombay High Court last month that suspended the application of two sub-clauses of the Information Technology Rules, 2021.

These clauses – 9 (1) and 9 (3) – oblige publishers of news on the Internet and OTT (over-the-top) platforms, such as Netflix and Prime Video, to comply with a “Code of Ethics” and also prescribe a government-led three-tier grievance mechanism.

The courts found that both clauses violate the constitutionally guaranteed right to freedom of speech and expression.

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) had notified the IT rules on February 25, under the Information Technology Law, 2000. However, since then they have been faced with legal challenges across the country, with at least 17 petitions filed in high courts. of Kerala, Delhi, Karnataka, Madras, Calcutta and Bombay, challenging various provisions of these rules.

While most of the other high courts have so far issued only an opinion on these requests, the high courts of Madras and Bombay are the only ones to suspend the application of the two sub-rules.

Since these rules specifically affect publishers of online content, ThePrint explains what this means for digital news media and OTT platforms.

What the rules say

Rule 9, partially suspended by the two high courts, speaks of observing and adhering to the code of ethics which is annexed to the rules. Clause 1 of the rule specifically states that all publishers, including those who publish news, news and content on OTT platforms, must adhere to the code.

The Code of Ethics requires editors dealing with news and current affairs to adhere to the Standards of Journalistic Conduct of the Press Council of India under the Press Council Act 1978 and the Program Code under of the Cable Television Network Act 1995. The two sets of standards respectively determine the standards for print media and a framework for television programs.

For OTT platforms, this code sets out five main principles and guidelines to be observed. Among other things, it requires platforms to take into consideration the “multiracial and multireligious context of India and to exercise caution and discretion when presenting the activities, beliefs, practices or opinions of any group. racial or religious ”.

In addition to that, it includes requirements for parental locks and age verification mechanisms, depending on the nature of the content.

Clause 3 of Rule 9, on the other hand, provides for a three-tier grievance mechanism to ensure the code is adhered to by online content publishers.

The first level of this mechanism is self-regulation by the publishers, the second level is self-regulation by the self-regulatory bodies of the publishers and the third level is a control mechanism by the central government.

Anyone with a grievance regarding posted content should contact the publisher first and move up the ranks in case the grievance is not resolved or addressed within the allotted time frame. Chapters II, III and IV of the Regulation provide more in depth for the three levels of this mechanism.

Bombay HC Order on Rules

The Bombay HC order, dated August 14, suspended rules 9 (1) and 9 (3), noting that the clauses oblige online news publishers to another set of rules, which falls under a statutory scheme completely different and distinct from the Data Protection Act.

The ordinance intervened on two pleas filed by the portal of legal news The booklet and by Mumbai-based journalist Nikhil Wagle, respectively.

The court also noted that Code of Conduct guidelines, such as those developed by the Press Council of India, are “moral and not statutory”.

However, he said, adherence to these moral guidelines has been made mandatory through computer rules. The court also said Rule 9 also goes beyond the power delegated by the Information Technology Act.

The HC therefore suspended Rule 9, declaring that it appeared on its face to infringe the right to freedom of speech and expression under Article 19 (1) (a) of the Constitution.

He asserted that “dissent in a democracy is vital” and with the 2021 rules in place, “one should think twice before criticizing such a personality, even though the writer / editor / editor may have good reasons for doing so without resorting to defamation and without inviting action under another provision of the law ”.

In an order of September 16, the HC Madras observed that news houses and OTT platforms had been asked to comply with rule 9 despite the order of the Bombay High Court. He also said that Bombay HC’s stay should “have a pan-Indian effect.”

What this means for OTT platforms, news publishers

A main consequence of the two orders is that digital information platforms and OTT platforms cannot be asked to comply with the code of ethics or be subject to the grievance mechanism at this time.

The Madras HC also stated that any action taken under Rules 3 and 7 of the IT Guidelines during the petitions will be subject to the eventual outcome of those petitions.

Rule 3 makes it the responsibility of an Internet intermediary to advise the user (for example, a social media user) not to post anything which is “manifestly false and false, and which is written or posted in any form. either with the intention of misleading or harassing any person, entity or agency for financial gain or to cause harm to any person ”. Non-compliance allows intermediaries to terminate user access or rights to use.

The current definition of intermediaries includes telecommunications service providers, network service providers, Internet service providers, web hosting service providers, search engines, online payment sites, online payment sites, online auctions, online marketplaces and platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot and WordPress.

Rule 7, on the other hand, makes an intermediary liable to sanction under any law, including the Indian Penal Code, if he does not comply with IT rules, removing the “safe zone” defense by under article 79 of the IT law. Section 79 provides Internet intermediaries with protection against legal liability for content posted on their websites by third parties.

Therefore, if an action is taken under Rules 3 and 9 and the IT rules are subsequently overturned by the court, the punitive action against the intermediary will also be rendered ineffective.
