With more customers of EmpireKred noting the cyberbullying they have witnessed on the website Keith Gill, AKA DigitalKeith, leader at EmpireKred, is fighting a desperate battle to bully and intimidate poeple out of telling the truth about EmpireKred.
Sadly for Keith Gill the “goon squad” is well documented and their activities conducted largely in the open for several years on Twitter.
According to Ethel Newlin of the San Francisco DA’s office blogging was part of helping change Twitter’s policy regarding abuse.
Despite this, Keith Gill continues to attack people who speak truth about EmpireKred.
We know how Keith Gill acts, he has been moderated by Instagram for cyberbullying, and has visited this blog in an act of open intimidation.
It’s sad that EmpireKred simply doesn’t fix their abuse problem, but warning customers and consumers of the “goon squad’ is perfectly reasonable given the circumstances.
This is, to put it mildly, not good enough. Freedom of expression means little as our underlying philosophy if we continue to allow voices to be silenced because they are afraid to speak up. We need to do a better job combating abuse without chilling or silencing speech.
Why is Keith Gill of the “goon squad” free to intimidate people concerned about cyberbullying and online safety?
Why are threats such as below tolerated?
