• @Velocio I'm arranging an online meeting with my MP atmo. Aware of the general picture from the thread. Is there any specific problem one should raise? I would encourage other lufgussers to do the same.

    You could use my follow up as a general talking point... That harm hasn't occurred on the forum or is rare and actively moderated. But that the burden the bill outlines is disproportionate for small communities and forums run by individuals or local groups.

    That the bill should apply to companies above some threshold only, or have lower or zero requirements for individuals and community groups.

    Examples of community groups are neighborhood chat groups (small forums for people who live in a post code), or shared interest groups (like Mumsnet before it was huge or things like lfgss).

    That large social media and commercially owned discussing forums are regulated isn't a problem, those entities can bear the cost and compliance requirements. But as the bill has precisely the same cost responsibilities for small community groups that are the grass roots of community groups... the bill should be progressive and only apply at a certain threshold and individuals and small charitable groups below any commercial threshold should be exempted.
