      stormfront is another hate filled site, and it should be taken down, some of the user content is shocking, and it's a worldwide site

    The problem with deflatforming 8chan is that they'll move either to a distributed platform, or as mentioned hide with Tor, which makes surveillance much harder. Free speech worked fine pre-internet.. But anonymity and the ability to congregate worldwide is an unsolvable problem bc the exact same phenomenon protects dissidents in China, but also radical terrorists (8chan, ISIS or whatever hateful ideology they happen to follow).

          The Verge is the only entity that should be deplatformed.

            The fact that a major internet media site is casually explaining how one could shut down a controversial website through targeting domain hosts is LEAGUES scarier to me than a bunch of anonymous strangers on the internet bitterly bickering on their image board.

            Seriously, censorship is unacceptable and a growing number of people are starting to stand up and say that. Knock it off.

                          or you could just allow people to have free speech and just not go to the sites that offend you.

                                        Did Cloudflare switch the DNS over or did they just take it down? If the latter that does shut down a site until they can find new DNS servers and propagate them.

                                                  They should have left 8chan alone so the authorities could look at it and stop crime. Freedom of the press and Free Speech is MOST important.

                                                              Yeah. These guys were no threat at all, then, they found a website.

                                                              Problem is, 8chan has visitors around the world, but only in America do those visitors become shooters.

                                                              Just like other countries where guns are legal, and there’s no mass shootings.

                                                              We have a unique problem, and we’re not looking for an equally unique cause. Until we do, we won’t find it.

                                                              (The fact we have 10X more people on anti depressants and anti anxiety drugs, and virtually every shooter is one of them.... kinda feels like something.)
