Although I agree with your concern that our present system does not have the maturity to impartially police social media 'violations', I think that legal consequences should be implemented for the following cases:

DELIBERATE release of misinformation that causes harm.

Posts that equate to hate speech as defined under numerous international precedents.

Deliberate misinformation that causes harm often constitutes political propaganda - think Bahamas Press and the various websites spouting Nygard stuff. But I can't see the authorities taking action in these cases.

I do recall when the Pindling regime went after the opposition for making political broadcasts from Florida during an election campaign (because they were shut out of ZNS). That's the kind of partiality we can expect.

I agree with you on hate speech.
