CISA, a privacy-invasive "cybersecurity" surveillance bill is back in Congress. We're the privacy activists trying to stop it. AMA
The Senate may try to pass the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) before its summer recess. The zombie bill is a dangerous surveillance bill drafted by the Senate Intelligence Committee that is nearly-identical to CISPA due to its broad immunity clauses for companies, vague definitions, and aggressive spying powers.
Can you help us stop it? AMA
Read the actual bill text here.
Visit the Stop Cyber Spying coalition website where you can fax your Senators and tell them to vote no on CISA.
Use a new tool developed by Fight for the Future to fax your lawmakers from the Internet. We want to make sure they get the message.
Help us spread the word. After you’ve taken action, tweet out why CISA must be stopped with the hashtag #StopCISA. Use the hashtag #FaxBigBrother if you want to automatically send a fax to your Senator opposing CISA. If you have a blog, join us by publishing a blog post this week about why you oppose CISA, and help us spread the word about the action tools at https://stopcyberspying.com/.

I thought I'd start my day with a quick status update for you all. It's only been a couple weeks since my return, but we've got a lot going on. We are in a phase of emergency fixes to repair a number of longstanding issues that are causing all of us grief. I normally don't like talking about things before they're ready, but because many of you are asking what's going on, and have been asking for a long time before my arrival, I'll share what we're up to.
Under active development:
- Content Policy. We're consolidating all our rules into one place. We won't release this formally until we have the tools to enforce it.
- Quarantine the communities we don't want to support
- Improved banning for both admins and moderators (a less sneaky alternative to shadowbanning)
- Improved ban-evasion detection techniques (to make the former possible).
- Anti-brigading research (what techniques are working to coordinate attacks)
- AlienBlue bug fixes
- AlienBlue improvements
- Android app
- Anti-abuse and harassment (e.g. preventing PM harassment)
- Modmail improvements
As you can see, lots on our plates right now, but the team is cranking, and we're excited to get this stuff shipped as soon as possible!
I'll be hanging around in the comments for an hour or so.
update: I'm off to work for now. Unlike you, work for me doesn't consist of screwing around on Reddit all day. Thanks for chatting!
