8chan to be back up soon. Has no plan to delete federally protected speech.

Oh no! A site that allows constitutionally protected speech to be posted will continue to exist?

The Ree's will echo throughout the night.

Cool. As I said in a previous thread about there I don't like the site myself but it getting shut down like that was troubling.

Never heard of this site but if the reason for shutting it down was because some SJW don't like the political ideologies being discussed, then this should be a nonissue.

When SJW can decide what constitutional rights are acceptable, that is when we know the federal government have abdicated its duties and responsibilities. Government should not be in the business of forcing people to accept idiotic ideas like diversity is strength or socialism or open borders. If not agreeing with the liberal agenda gets a site or platform red flagged or blacklist, then that is simply political oppression and suppression.

It's all about free speech everyone***! First amendment!

See? I can go up to someone and call him the stupidest, incest fucking, poorest, zit faced, fucked up stage 4 terminally cancer ridden retard. And there is nothing he or the cops can do about it.

***(But I'll leave out calling him a towelhead for forums because the cops will arrest me for that).

Good. The impotent rage I can already hear coming from ReeeeRa about this and THQN is like music to my ears.

Had a laugh when Reee users were signalling in the PS+ thread telling everyone how they were boycotting Darksiders III. Although if 8 chan is a paedo haven then it should stay down.

It will probably go down again sooner rather than later, especially the next time a mass shooter or two decides that's the best online platform they have for posting a stream or statement.

And 90% of the reactions are 'hope you get a high score !' encouragement.

Does gaf use cloudflaire? Just wondering how long until this site is scrubbed from the internet.

I mean shit, if 8 Chan goes down for having a member that does a bad thing, how long would this site survive another amorix? (is that how you spell it? The CP mod.)

I kept hearing that posts there regularly creep into illegal category,

As long as nothing illegal is going on, it should be allowed.
Someone can post shit, but then nobody is forced to go to that site and read that shit either.

They want to delete places that allow for unauthorized opinions. Twitter contains many worse things then you’ll find on 8chan.

But the platform supports the “right” opinions and users, and that is all that matters.

twitter sanctions all kinds of heinous porn that is pretty goddamn exploitative in certain cases

Will they interview representatives of facebook too for example that broadcasted the ChristChurch massacre, or are they focusing exclusively on sites that aren't controlled by our corporate overlords?

I'm not a fan of the site (not into the whole chan bollocks), but I would rather such a site is able to exist. If people get a site you disagree with shut down, nothing is stopping others from shutting down a site you agree with.

Of course it's back. Why wouldn't the feds want one of their honey pots back?

Whole site glows in the dark.
