Decrepit Controls

Exhibit 1: Eric Schmidt, on the Google+ “real name” policy.

“If you think about it, the Internet would be better if we had an accurate notion that you were a real person as opposed to a dog, or a fake person, or a spammer or what have you. […] If we knew that it was a real person, then we could sort of hold them accountable, we could check them… we could, you know, bill them.”

Exhibit 2: CNN, “Bodies hanging from bridge in Mexico are warning to social media users.

“A woman was hogtied and disemboweled, her intestines protruding from three deep cuts on her abdomen. Attackers left her topless, dangling by her feet and hands from a bridge in the border city of Nuevo Laredo. A bloodied man next to her was hanging by his hands, his right shoulder severed so deeply the bone was visible.”

“Signs left near the bodies declared the pair, both apparently in their early 20s, were killed for posting denouncements of drug cartel activities on a social network.”

“We could, you know, bill them.”
