This should be of huge interest to goats, because this domain could come under similar attack at any time. It's only our relatively small user base that has kept us off the radar.

I am very much convinced, that if Voat grew in number where the impact can no longer be ignored, this (((bullshit))) will fall on us. And it will be rinsed and repeated to take down other websites!

Voat needs to allow tor hidden service access to the site.

The site is not sustainable in its current form. There isn't robust enough technological protection against censorship, and socially the site is easily marginalized by the services it relies on to exist.

I see only I2P of Freenet type of things as a credible alternative to the spread of political censorship on the "regular" internet. People must start migrating to the darknet. At least peeking into it. Anything else is bound to fail from the moment it is conceived.

Does that include the blockchain style internet like Zeronet?

In general I don't get why voat isn't leading the charge on something like that. I also would be interested in the whole "cpu cycles for cryptomining" instead of ads thing to support it.

@PuttItOut - is your username some sort of anti-smoking campaign?

Also, is there any hidden terms in Voat's domain registrar's TOS that would allow them to pull some bullshit like this?

PuttItOut is a golf reference to putting.

I can't answer the second part though. If you read this PuttItOut, can you copy/paste the TOS?

So... Are you saying that by giving in to the threats from the Left and censoring its users Gab did not gain anything after all?

They folded, they dropped their "free speech" banner, they censored their users and they are still on the run?

What a surprise!

Gab fucked up, must admit it. They should had stayed with the free speech while they had it. But they begun to hesitate and then just betrayed the very basic principle they were trying to build their business on. Now they can cry all they want, but none of the sides really respect them anymore.

I appreciate what they did, though. At least they tried. And became martyrs. Lesson to everyone - don't give in to the threats, it will not do you any good, and don't hope to compromise, there are no compromises, it is either all or nothing.

Dude. You can find all the website this guy owns. He's in it for the shekels and he always was. There's a fuck ton of gab shills on voat. Give up on this money loving whore. It was bullshit from the start and everyone knew it but the gab shills came flowing through this place.

I'll say it. If you fell for this money Grubbing cocksucker and you still support him fuck you.

I don't know what this fucker is planning with the Google suing but it's probably because he's pissed that he lost money.

Doesn't matter what he stands for. The point is that the DNS system is being used to police speech on the Internet. Unless you want that to be used against you, you have to fight its use against anyone. All of this, "well, I don't like them so I'll allow abuses of power" is why we're here in the first place.

Jews have cornered the whole Internet, and I really think the only way we'll have any freedom of speech here is if someone teaches them a lesson.

Remember how there wasn't another Ruby Ridge or Waco after Timmy lit up the Murrah building?

People in power only learn one way.

The SCOTUS already ruled on this, not an immediate threat, and not likely to cause an immediate reaction.

Gabai

Why the hate for Gab? Is it because it's not part of the leftopoly of GoogFaceTwit? Everytime I go to Gab it's pretty tame. I'm sure someone wrote kike once but by that measure all social media sites should be taken down.

This. Only narrative controlled by the Left is allowed to exist. And that is totally unacceptable. Internet is becoming the biggest Leftist propaganda machine ever to exist. They say "1984", "1984"... Yes. It is becoming fucking 1984 all over.

Yes they ate and it's a serious assault against human rights. I don't give a shit what Torba did or didn't do. This is just the start of every single dissenting opinion being shut down permanently.

I don't think there's any line that can't crossed fighting back that isn't justified. It won't be this one asshole's domain registrar either. Gab will be chased off of every one of them.

Tony Lentino in New Zealand is the prick behind this one.

They want to have their cake and eat it. They promoted themselves as a free-speech platform, just like Voat, but at the first sign of trouble, they dropped their free-speech motto, and they're banning their users for perfectly-legal speech. As far as I'm concerned, I don't care what happens to them.
