Safety by Design Principles
Would be interesting to analyze this for its approach to ethics. I see a lot of deontology.

Flight evacuated after image of suicide vest AirDropped to Apple devices | US news | The Guardian
Suggests that Apple AirDrop, by default, lets anyone make an image of their choice appear on any iOS device physically near them, in a way that's completely unattributable to them without detailed forensic analysis. That's... quite a harassment vector, if accurately reported.

We analyzed more than 1 million comments on 4chan. Hate speech there has spiked by 40% since 2015 • VICE News
<p>On 4chan you'll find anime, porn, and sports chatter. You'll also find an endless stream of racist threats, stomach-churning memes, and misogynistic vitriol — and it’s getting worse, according to a VICE analysis of more than 1 million comments on one of the site’s most popular message boards.

On the heavily trafficked “politically incorrect” board, slurs against racial, ethnic, religious, or sexual or gender minorities have increased by 40% since 2015, while neo-Nazi propaganda has proliferated. And users on the forum are increasingly making violent threats against minority groups: Comments that include both hate speech and violent language have increased by 25% over the same period.

After a wave of recent attacks by white nationalists across the world, social media platforms have begun cracking down on hate speech. But anonymous online forums like 4chan — a comment board designed to facilitate discussions between users posting threads of text, images, and memes — have remained a toxic, anonymous mixture of hate, bigotry, and misogyny, and have given violent extremists a kind of digital safe space…

…The rise in that language began in the summer of 2016, increasing in tandem with the presidential election and only beginning to abate in 2018. Comments mentioning now-President Donald Trump or his catchphrase “Make America Great Again” were about 10% more likely to also contain a Nazi slogan. The total volume of Nazi watchwords has since declined but is still about 40% higher than before the 2016 election. They appear in about one in every 100 comments.</p>

They don't cite who did the research or what it consisted of, but otherwise it all sounds like you'd expect: bad, and getting worse.

Our Commitment to Lead the Fight Against Online Bullying – Instagram
Experimenting with two new anti-harassment features. "are you sure you want to post this?" on potential hostile comments, with a delay timer. And "restrict", which shadow isolates comments from a problematic user without notifying them, and stops read receipt notifications to that person.

my employee keeps commenting on my looks — Ask a Manager
Comment from "Jen in Oregon":
While I do think we need to not be as concerned about this as we still are, I think we women need to give ourselves a break about the fact that we’re still worried about how to stop offense without being offensive back. In situations like this, it’s probably more than *just* social conditioning–it’s an evolutionary instinct to help us stay alive. Even in 2019, it’s hard to separate with any certainty the 98%* run-of-the-mill misogynists that will act all butt-hurt–and might try to cause you problems at work–for being called out on their assholery from the 2% willing to physically hurt you, if not kill you, for damaging their ego.

*These percentages were made up.

Facebook moderators break their NDAs to expose desperate working conditions
A Facebook content moderator working for Cognizant in Tampa had a heart attack at his desk and died last year. Senior management initially discouraged employees from discussing the incident, for fear it would hurt productivity.

Tampa workers have filed two sexual harassment cases against coworkers since April. They are now before the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Facilities at the Tampa site are often filthy, with workers reporting that the office’s only bathroom has repeatedly been found smeared with feces and menstrual blood.

Workers have also found pubic hair and fingernails at their desks, along with other bodily waste.

Verbal and physical fights at the office are common. So are reports of theft.

The Phoenix site has been dealing with an infestation of bed bugs for the past three months.
