Cloudflare Cuts Service to 'Cesspool of Hate'


Cloudflare has lower service to 8chan, a web based discussion board it referred to as a “cesspool of hate.” The transfer was motivated by the position 8chan performed in mass shootings in El Paso, Texas; Christchurch, New Zealand; and Poway, California. “The rationale is simple: They have proven themselves to be lawless and that lawlessness has caused multiple tragic deaths,” wrote Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince. “Even if 8chan may not have violated the letter of the law … they have created an environment that revels in violating its spirit.”
