Section 230 supporters turn on it, its critics rely on it. Up is down, black is white in the crazy world of US law

No they should not be above the law, the law should CHANGE to be appropriate as the current system is broken one way or the other, you just have to be careful not to make the reworked laws either to weak so they mean nothing to draconian so they remove everything or to wide/ narrow. Is this easy to do? Absolutely not. We also have to think about the fact that this is US law that have some inherently broken (from my point of view) views on what is suitable for children and basically rather skewed morality. A movie with quite graphic violence is fine for children but if there's so much as a hint of a nipple you can't show it to anyone under 18. It's ok to have guns lying around the house (I know this is not the way it's supposed to be in most places but this is all a hyperbole) but seeing your mother naked is sure to make you scared for life...
