still remember people being pissed off when i said on another board years ago that the internet as we know it, is pretty much owned by a bunch of lefties, whom can censor the internet with ease.
This is a decidedly conservative idea. Identical to having the right not to bake a cake for a gay couple.
That's what I was thinking. Cloudflare booting 8chan had zero to do with ideology and everything to do with dolla dolla bills y'all. Some investor or group of customers or advertisers complains hard enough, and you give in because falling on your sword isn't an option for companies. Least of all falling on your sword for some Nazis.
The whole "left wing censorship conspiracy" is really just free market economics. Right wingers loooove unbridled capitalism until they don't.
