"This is a new low, preying on people at a time like this."

It's not "new". It's novel!

Seriously tho, scammers have gone to lower depths before. There's nothing new about the levels of depravity of these particular scams.

There is enough censorship already... the idea of this being introduced a the root level is scary.

On an added note, I wonder if ICAAN now wants to censor the WHO for its CCP influenced fake information?
