2015 Gov. Pence and Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act - any sources?[edit]

Has anyone seen any sources (I guess a newspaper columnist somewhere) mention this about Indiana's (infamous?) 2015 Religious Freedom Restoration Act signed by Gov. Pence? Jimw338 (talk) 18:40, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

A Sreisand Effect is not "someone did something extremely controversial", so no, there will be no reliable sources that would make the RFRA qualify as an example for this article. Resolute 21:40, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

#SueMeSaudi and #SaudiArabiaIsISIS[edit]

These two hashtags typify the Streisand Effect. It would make a great addition to the wiki. "The hashtag #SueMeSaudi is soaring after a source at the Saudi Arabian justice ministry reportedly said he would sue a Twitter user who compared Saudi Arabia to the terror group 'Islamic State.'" http://www.dw.com/en/suemesaudi-twitter-users-taunt-saudi-arabia/a-18884389 Tim Riches, Mississauga, Ontario (talk) 19:15, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

No, they aren't an example of a Streisand Effect. That is just garden variety censorship. Resolute 21:48, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
