Online media likes to stir the pot with false narratives, people see these headlines and "click" on them," clicks" equal advertising "cash". Seem to me that when you make false claims for "PROFIT", that's is grounds for a Libel suit, they'll only stop when it's hits them financially.

Trying to nail click-bait profiteers is like trying to nail telemarketer con-men.

They'll sit on their URL until there's some heat and then they just change their address and <poof> they're a new company with a new owner and with zero provable liability for the activity of the old one.

The only effective means to hit them financially would be a general boycott of their service, and when was there ever a successful boycott of an infrastructure service in response to systemic abuse?

Government office attracts the power-mad, yet it's people who just want to be left alone to live life on their own terms who are considered dangerous.
