    The Stormercuntsite has reportedly moved over to the dark net...since the internet is dark enough for me perhaps someone else here knows if stormcunt is likely to same and what that might mean?

    I wouldn't have put it past the FBI to have secretly set up version 1.0.

    There are commercially driven attacks on net nutrality. But a web host deciding, when it's finacially inexpedient to dump a site, isn't that. Nazis are bad PR. Now people are looking.

    Can't they just get hosted in Russia or some other country they'll take the money and not give a shit?

    I expect the site will have quickly reestablished itself on the tor network as has the Daily Stormer

    Rutita1 I imagine a lot of it's members would already be familiar with the 'darknet' so would have little trouble accessing it. It will make it initially more difficult for 'newbies' both to the far right scene and the net in general but not for very long.

    I expect these hate sites will eventually be sanctioned the same way as the pirate sites. ISPs will refuse to link to them even if they're online.

    This so-called 'darknet' will probably turn into what the internet was 20 years ago. Back then normal people read newspapers and odd people (including Nazis) read the internet. Now normal people read the internet and odd people read the darknet.

    I wonder if they'll do what the Daily Stormer did and run their site out of Algeria - something that made me chuckle for a good five minutes.

    I don't think it is a free speech issue, it is the market in action. These businesses don't want to take the shit that comes with taking cash of deeply unpleasant people.

    Well yes and no. They took their own sweet time and their profits about it, it was only with recent developments that a line was seen to be crossed. Before that hate speech, racism and their money was fine.

    I guess it's a function of the inaccurate reporting about this but Stormfront hasn't been "taken down" in the sense some people seem to be assuming. The domain 'stormfront.org' has been suspended by Network Solutions it's registrar. So if you try to go to that address it doesn't resolve.

    However the server on which the board is located hasn't been affected. It's still exactly where it was and - as of a couple of minutes ago when I looked - the board is functioning. Or would be if more than a tiny minority of it's users could access it. It's not at the address where people expect to find it, and - deeply sad this - you can't get to the server by typing in the IP number because the site has Cloudflare protection to protect it from DDOS attacks, and this also prevents that kind of direct access.

    There is a workaround for computer users by modifying their HOSTS file but that's probably a bit technical for the majority of the userbase. For smartphone or tablet users it also requires rooting their device. Although instructions have been posted online it's clear that few have either found them or applied them, and there are only a handful of new posts.

    On the latest edition of his radio show founder and cunt in charge Don Black confirmed that Network Solutions are preventing him from transferring the domain name to another registrar. He stated his lawyers would be taking steps to try to unlock it, and that he had been offered outside legal assistance. Although he had other domain names already registered his initial feeling was to try and retrieve 'stormfront.org'.

    If that's unsuccessful there's nothing to stop the board adopting another domain name and being back open for business. It's not as if there's any shortage of less choosy registrars as the reemergence of the Daily Stormer using an Albanian domain address demonstrates.

    nuffsaid But this goes up to 11

    Mate of mine works for Cloudflare - they were responsible for traffic maintenance for Daily Stormer and got loads of hate comments and tweets from people thinking they were supporting them. Cloudflare replied that they just supported traffic maintenance between sites and do not in anyway endorse any views held by sites. Daily Stormer apparently waded in and thanked Cloudlfare for their support and agreeing with their views. So Cloudflare responded and binned their support of them.

    Then Cloudflare got loads of hate comments and tweets saying they were against freedom of speech on the internet. Can't win.

    Cloudflare demonstrates why these companies try to avoid moral judgements of these sites. They withdrew service from the Dialy Stomer but haven't done the same on this site - they'll end up at the end of campaigns for all sorts of sites.

    Cloudflare isn't the only game in town. The Daily Stormer are currently using rival service BitMitigate, who are actively promoting their commitment to free speech

    Its not really banning free speech, when the "groups" sole purpose is to encourage and incite racial hatred.

    Happens all the time. Registrars' terms of service grant some pretty wide powers to take down domains, mostly used for alleged breaches of IP.

    And the Daily Stormer has been booted off it's Albanian domain.

    Albanian domain registrar kicks Neo-Nazi site Daily Stormer offline - ZDnet
    Unlike previous bootings this time the Stormer seems to have been able to set up a redirect. First this sent anyone going to their .al address to Andrew Anglin's account at Austin Texas based right-wing social media network GAB, and now it serves a page with instructions on how to access the site via TOR and a link to that GAB account

    If Anglin is downhearted he's not showing it
