Mixed feelings, really: I'm leery of any kind of regulation of this type because of all the ways it can be abused for the wrong reasons, but then at the same time it is possible that the way social media has been used by various parties to manipulate public opinion does represent a threat to the democratic process.

Good grief, the amount of tinfoil hatting about climate science is utterly astounding.
