#OnlineSafetyBill bingo

Today sees the second reading of the UK's Online Safety Bill, before the House of Commons.

Here's my bingo card:

Neil's Online Safety Bill bingo
lawful but awful wild west big tech
flick of a switch make directors personally liable oh no the dark web
what's illegal offline must be illegal online rogue algorithms end-to-end encryption

Here's my anti-bingo card:

Neil's Online Safety Bill anti-bingo
prior restraint massive burden any indication of realistic costs
MPs' own social media comments no general obligation to monitor recognition of the tens of thousands of in-scope sites
funding better policing for online crimes recognising that age is a poor proxy for sensibilities / "children" covers a huge range a definition of "harm" capable of ready application

Why not play along at home?
