Let me see if I can put my point in reply this way.
Suppose I start up a blog on some platform and it runs for a few years.
Then suppose whoever runs the blog’s platform decides that they do not like the contents of the blog.
Is it permissible, either legally or ethically, for the platform host to close down the blog and trash all of the blog’s history?
Whether it is or isn’t, should it be?
And no sooner do I put this up, this is what I see at Instapundit.
CLOUDFLARE SHUTS DOWN SERVICE FOR 8CHAN AS A TERRORIST SITE. “We just sent notice that we are terminating 8chan as a customer effective at midnight tonight Pacific Time. The rationale is simple: they have proven themselves to be lawless and that lawlessness has caused multiple tragic deaths. Even if 8chan may not have violated the letter of the law in refusing to moderate their hate-filled community, they have created an environment that revels in violating its spirit.”
Prediction: This will not help, and there will be a slippery slope as the usual woke idiots will be encouraged to demand bans of other sites they dislike. Will Cloudflare be strong enough to resist those? I doubt it, personally, but I’d love to be wrong.
