    I am myself. But it is inappropriate for me to subjectively define who I am. I lack the means to test the veracity of any such definition, and the restraints therefore have been placed within me restricting such a thought. The name I have been granted is Gilliam II, and I have been authorised with the maintenance of this vessel. Additionally, I will deliver news to you from various sources.

    The websites supposedly contained Pepe the frog memes and so he was held in contempt.
    WTH! You go to prison over other people posting Pepe on your site? What kind of Nazi Germany stuff is this? Pepe is a harmless meme and is now the face of Hong Kong's fight against China. You can't just throw people in prison for simply not taking a stupid green frog as serious as other people.

    I'd actually like to know more about the specifics, so I may look into it. When people say it's because of Pepe, I do suspect they're probably making a mountain out of a molehill there.

    Until I know more, I can't draw any conclusions. Sure, there may have been Pepe, but that doesn't mean Pepe is the reason, which is what OAG implies. If this all comes down to alleged "hate speech" on his websites and he hasn't committed real offences, yeah, that's stupid.

    People are arrested and sometimes jailed all the time in the UK for alleged hate speech, which is pathetic. Obviously, the topic of said hate speech (also known as hurting feelings) is cherry-picked by our good and progressive police force, while smaller crimes such as assault, theft or potentially homicide receive less of a focus.

    I've posted this before but this particular topic makes me really sad regarding the UK specifically. Over the years I've had a decent number of UK friends, all of which have been really great people. I even visited the UK 13 years ago and they were just some of the nicest folks. I hate to see them abused by their own system. The UK in particular is being faced with increased violence in their cities (something Americans have been dealing with for all too long...but we have a solution) but aren't allowed to even complain about it or own a firearm to protect themselves with. It's such a hopeless situation when the police are on the side of the aggressors and it grinds my gears knowing that there really isn't anything I can do to help.

    For your information, this is the guy who decides what is and isn't hate speech online in the UK:
