So what? you say. Well, imagine India with its 1 billion population suddenly invading websites like youtube and maybe here, we would have a gradual (or sudden) shift into what the rules of ettiquecy are on the Internet and the types of questions asked/answers given.

The only thing we should be stopping is child predators and child porn. That is something that shouldn't exist. As for Daesh propaganda, as terrible as those people are, you'd have to be extremely stupid to join them. If you do and die in Syria than that's on you not the government.1
