Their options are very limited. They can't get direct peering because they are toxic, no backbone provider will touch them. They can only rebuild onto some sketchy overseas hosting service which will be much more expensive than AWS as those services cater mostly to porn and criminals. Now that they are de-platformed all they have are a bunch of non-revenue bearing feral freaks and nowhere cheap to host them.

Probably some right winger will want to build a Nazi friendly platform for people like this. And they’re all rich so what’s stopping them?

The real test is whether somebody sues to shut them down, or sues for damages related to the threats on the site. It’s not theoretical now, people were injured. That cop’s family could probably sue, or maybe the Deplorables that were arrested themselves could sue, saying they were innocent little lambs that were misled. Once there’s an avalanche of lawsuits, nobody will host them.

In a world of increased polarity, nuance and the allowance of differing perspective often gets trampled by pitchfork mobs.

I have been concerned with Trump since July 2015.

I’ve also had concerns about limiting speech: even if crazy. Given the seriousness of inciting further devastation and death, I now appreciate the de-platformimg and de-fanging of those who encourage and incite it.

The article below gives weighted acknowledgement to various perspectives and with nuance, also explains why other despots can continue on Twitter despite Trump being de-platformed.

Enough with this bullshit. BLM never invaded and vandalized the Capitol, ffs. When they did protest peacefully outside the WH, they were tear gassed by the military to clear a path for Dump’s bizarre xtian photo op.

BLM never spread seditious and inflammatory lies designed to incite violence. Their protests were by and large fairly peaceful. Never did five people die on one day; I think around 20 people total died throughout the the whole summer and fall of protesting. And most violence was committed by cops against protesters, not vice versa. Very few protestors ever showed up to a rally carrying weapons.

The looting was largely committed by the usual opportunists, who were advocating no particular ideology. Many arrested for burning up buildings turned out to be Boogaloos and Proud Boys just wanting to stir shit or make leftists look bad. To the extent that looting and burning were planned on social media, yeah those people should have been shut down, whether lefties or outside agitators. But there was no reason to stop basic organizing of protests from happening.

R35 - The United States Supreme Court says that bakers can’t deny wedding cakes to the gays. So, I’m not sure where your argument goes from there.

I’ve never been to “Parlor” and never will. And I’m all for the imprisonment of Trump. At the same time I’m honest enough to admit that there does appear to be a double standard in how the social media and web giants react to these things. Technically Twitter, Google et al. are using public resources and the public infrastructure to run their massive companies, so there is, and should be reasonable recourse for entities like Parlor to sue and/or demand equal protections as long as they aren’t breaking the law themselves. That’s an inconvenient truth but a truth nonetheless.

Not any longer. Google, Amazon and IBM have built out a massive infrastructure, and the majority of traffic passes through many, many commercial routers. The idea of a public network is long gone.

This is what makes me laugh at Republicans: they have fought for decades to commercialize everything, and then get their panties in a twist when commercial companies tell them they're not welcome. If the infrastructure that runs the internet was a public good, Parler could sue the government for access and win. That's not the world that Republicans have shoved down our throats for the last 40 years, and for once, they have to live with the ramifications of their lawmaking.

slight OT, the twitter/FB Trump ban/Parler removal by Google, Apple and Amazon also sent a "chill" around the world, it just showed you how dominant those tech giants have become, they can literally silence you within seconds and there will be no alternative for your voice to be heard. I have to say, regardless of your opinion on China or Russia, at least these two countries know from the beginning they cannot let American companies rule the internet, that's why they build their own IT infrastructure and make their domestic service like VK, weibo, wechat...the top priority, also they have a fully functional internet/intranet independent of US. If the US congress or the president sign the law and nationalize those tech companies, they can shut down Europe or any country that is relying on Google, Apple or Amazon...countries like Japan, Australia or India etc will have no other choices.

by Anonymousreply 9501/09/2021

Everyone is so addicted to their laptops, forums, threads, apps, platforms, texts and tweets, that they have forgotten that interpersonal human communication was around for many millennia prior to the appearance of social media. And that it exists independently of social media. People are just too spoiled and ego-ed out by how far and wide their little brain farts can travel now through these platforms, to be able to remember that social media is nothing more than a novel tool for spewing out information to a wide population. Like skywriting or those banners that are pulled by airplanes. It's cool. But it's not the bedrock of liberty and freedom that these loony birds are making it out to be. It's not in the fucking Constitution as an inalienable right.

No one is taking away Trump's capability, OR HIS RIGHT, to speak freely and communicate with other humans. It's like, if I owned a bar, and Trump was a regular in my bar, but he repeatedly would incite hate and violence and would shoot off his loud lying mouth in my bar getting folks agitated every time he would come and drink at my establishment, then I would have the right to kick Trump out of my bar. It'd be like, "You wanna brawl, mister big guy? Well, guess what? You can't do it here. Doesn't mean you can't go find another bar, or write a book, or make a couple of calls, or send a letter, or have a party and invite all your shitty friends. But this is my goddamn bar, and you are causing problems. So get out."

After about 60 minutes, Parler got old real quick. Think of all the batshit crazy QAnon conspiracy theories, slobbering Fox News hosts vitriol, racist hate speech promoters, scary people who live in bunkers waiting for the end of the world, gun nuts, insane Dump supporter cult members (and they notch it up several levels on Parler), even more insane evangelical christians who think Dump is god- most of them who are virtually illiterate so that you have to read their posts several times in an effort to understand what they are trying to say - and gay hater Milo Fucking Yiannopoulos - and that's what Parler is.

They are " Patriots" who think the Capitol riots were excellent and want escalated riots, others blame ANTIFA for everything, they will never accept that the election wasn't stolen and there are all sorts of conspiracy theories about literally everything.

What a shitfest and I don't want to read their crap but someone does need to keep a close eye on it because that sort of online meeting point is where plans will be made. That's why it's being banned.

So I deleted my account. A short experiment. Glad I did it but it's too crazy in there for me.

This was mentioned upthread, but here is a complete statement from Parler CEO John Matz. He's not confident and though anymore.

[quote]Parler CEO John Matze said today that his social media company has been dropped by virtually all of its business alliances after Amazon, Apple and Google ended their agreements with the social media service.

[quote] “Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day,” Matze said today on Fox News.

[quote] Matze conceded that the bans could put the company out of business while raising free speech issues, calling it “an assault on everybody.”

[quote] “They all work together to make sure at the same time we would lose access to not only our apps, but they’re actually shutting all of our servers off tonight, off the internet,” Matze said. “They made an attempt to not only kill the app, but to actually destroy the entire company. And it’s not just these three companies. Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day.”

[quote]The remarks come a day after Amazon dropped Parler from its servers, joining Apple and Google. They all cited the potential of spreading violent content on the site, which is favored by conservatives as an alternative to Twitter and Facebook.

[quote] Matze said that the services are unfairly targeting Parler. “They’re trying to falsely claim that we’re somehow responsible for the events that occurred on the 6th,” he said, the date of the Capitol building takeover by protesters.

[quote] “It would put anybody out of business,” he said of the tech bans. “This thing could destroy anybody.”

[quote] He added: “We’re going to try our best to get back online as quickly as possible. But we’re having a lot of trouble because every vendor we talk to says they won’t work with us. Because if Apple doesn’t approve and Google doesn’t approve, they won’t.”

Article about how Parler was incredibly easy to hack because of incredibly bad programming on the site

[quote]Parler also doesn't require authentication to view public posts and doesn't use any sort of "rate limiting" that would cut off anyone accessing too many posts too quickly. Together with the IDOR (insecure direct object reference) issue, that meant that any hacker could write a simple script to reach out to Parler's web server and enumerate and download every message, photo, and video in the order they were posted.

[quote] "It's just a straight sequence, which is mind-numbing to me," says (Kenneth) White (co-director of the Open Crypto Audit Project). "This is like a Computer Science 101 bad homework assignment, the kind of stuff that you would do when you're first learning how web servers work. I wouldn't even call it a rookie mistake because, as a professional, you would never write something like this."

Did the hackers steal information from Parler? Or did they just download public information?

[quote] Despite Parler's security woes, @donk_enby was careful to counter rumors that hackers had accessed all Parler information, including the images of driver's licenses that Parler asks users to submit if they want a verified account. "Only things that were available publicly via the web were archived," @donk_enby wrote in a Twitter post. A Reddit rumor that hackers gained access to more private data on the site—due to SMS provider Twilio cutting ties with Parler and disabling its two-factor authentication—was "bullshit," @donk_enby confirmed in a message to WIRED. While Twilio did drop Parler as a customer, the result was only that hackers could bypass two-factor authentication if they knew an account's password or could mass-generate new accounts, she says. They could not gain access to existing accounts.

[quote] Even so, White points out that Parler appears to have failed to scrub geolocation metadata from images and videos before they were posted. So while the data that hackers have pulled from the site may be public, the result is that much of that archived content also contains Parler users' detailed locations, likely revealing the GPS coordinates of many of their homes. Data artist Kyle McDonald has already created a visualization of the locations of 68,000 of the archived Parler videos.

[quote] "This is as bad as it gets," White says. "It's gross incompetence on the part of Parler. They marketed themselves as a private, secure, unmoderated platform, and instead it's comedy hour."

[quote] Parler moves to Epik, a domain registrar known for hosting far-right extremist content

[quote] Parler finding "refuge" with Epik, as Vice reported, comes after the (Epik) company's history of hosting far-right content. Gab, a far-right Facebook alternative, and Bitchute, a far-right YouTube alternative, both operate with Epik.

Infowars, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' website, is also registered with Epik.

Besides Parler's bad programming on its site, they are having trouble with the lawsuit against Amazon. From SeattleTimes.com:

[quote] Parler’s lawsuit got off to a stumbling start. The company filed its request for a temporary restraining order, which would have stopped Amazon from booting Parler off its hosting services, one day too late — after Parler had already been wiped from the web. Parler also initially failed to serve Amazon with its complaint, in violation of court rules.

[quote] Parler’s choice of attorney in the case is something of an enigma. Solo practitioner David Groesbeck, of Spokane, has previously represented local businesses in licensing, real estate and property disputes. Groesbeck has not responded to requests for comment; his website redirects to an “under construction” page.

Parler lost the database software company that is the central core of the Parler program. He seems to think that losing them is about as big as losing Amazon.

He says that the fastest way that they could come back is if the courts force Amazon to resume hosting Parler. (Every boy should have a dream.)

Previously in other interviews he said that Parler would NEVER use software algorithms to mark objectionable content. He insisted on using humans to find objectionable content and then let an (unpaid?) jury of users vote whether or not to ban content. But now, all of a sudden, he's talking about adding moderator algorithms to automatically find that content. Huh.

[quote] Matze’s move comes after Amazon earlier this week said its employees, too, have been threatened — by Parler users. “Both sides of this dispute have shown that their employees have suffered real harassment and threats — including, on both sides, death threats — owing to the charged nature of this litigation,” according to Parler’s filing, which was reported earlier by Fox News.

THe NYTimes says that the Russian company is just hosting the informational webpage. Parler is still looking for someone else to host their huge database.

Epik, which is Gab.com's host, apparently won't do it.

[quote] Robert Davis, Epik’s senior vice president, said in an interview that Epik had only helped register Parler’s domain name, a basic function of the internet. While Epik would like to help, he said, Parler’s needs are too large.

[quote] “I would expect Parler to be an amazing force for good in the future,” he said. “I could see them easily hitting 100 million members or more in 2021 alone.

Parler may be trying to build its system from scratch. But Problems:

[quote] Mr. Davis said he believed that Parler was trying to build its own infrastructure. On Monday, Mr. Matze appeared to support that notion in an interview on Fox News, saying, “We really need to build our own infrastructure and our own technology.”

[quote] In a legal filing on the same day, Mr. Matze said Parler did not have “the technical and security expertise to host the Parler environment on its own,” adding, “Nor is it feasible for Parler to do so.”

[quote] He said the computers and other equipment needed to host Parler’s site would cost more than $6 million and take weeks to arrive. “Simply put, it would not be possible for Parler itself to acquire the necessary servers and related security infrastructure in a commercially reasonable time frame,” he said.

So the real solution ?

[quote] For Parler, the ideal solution would be returning to Amazon’s servers. The network has accused Amazon of violating antitrust law and asked a federal judge to force it to host Parler. After a hearing last week, the companies are now awaiting a ruling.

Russiapublicans = Russia + Republicans. They've been colluding for years.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
