Cloudflare Just Banned a Social Media Refuge for Thousands of Sex Workers https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/8xk78x/switter-down-cloudflare-banned-sex-workers-sesta-fosta
@angristan Just get it straight from them -> https://assemblyfour.com/switter/cloudflare-fosta-sesta
I thought Switter was hosted in a country where FOSTA/SESTA don't apply?
@angristan Matthew Prince (Cloudflare CEO) said when he banned The Daily Stomer:
"Literally, I woke up in a bad mood and decided someone shouldn’t be allowed on the Internet. No one should have that power."
Looks like he's getting a little more comfortable with it.
@vi @angristan @Gargron that's not really the case. Dropping hate groups isn't necessarily a legal issue, but, at least in the US after recent laws, dropping switter absolutely is a legal issue. When it comes to priorities for companies, legal always trumps moral, right or wrong. The problem here is with US law, not Cloudflare. I for one am glad a decentralized solution exists so the people can just find another DNS provider and continue on expressing their freedom.

@Gargron @angristan They also took down at least one torrent searcher that I saw people talking about,
