I really have NO idea what is going on with Gab. The removing comment thing was apparently blackmail from their domain registar - which only goes to highlight that domain registration is a rigged game run by authoritarians hell bent on bringing the Internet into compliance with their approved speech. We DESPERATELY need a domain registar that doesn't discriminate.

As for Vox Day, my understanding is that he started this war by doxing and then suing people that said unkind things about his book. If that is even partially true then HE is the one that is "dead" - and I mean that from a moral standpoint not as some veiled threat of violence. You can't have it both ways. YOU get to Dox but then go nuts when someone else does it to you.

Honestly Vox never seemed screwed together too tightly to me. So none of this comes as much of a surprise. But at the same time there is some shady stuff about Gab that makes me wonder what their real game is too.

Gab wants 100% free speech and to be able to ignore defamation laws in any jurisdiction. That ain't gonna happen.

And now Andrew Torba has publicly endorsed people attempting to doxx and SWAT his users despite the way in which doing so would clearly violate's Gab's Terms of Service. At this point, given the unprofessionalism and obvious lack of self-control being demonstrated by Andrew, I think it is safe to conclude that Gab is dead. It simply hasn't stopped moving yet.

Marc Randazza's reputation as an attack dog-level lawyer is top-notch. But for many reasons, I'm not betting on him.

Fuck Gab, and fuck Google.
