Registrars & Mass Murder

We in domain sales pretty much predicted it: Epik, the registrar whose owner I’ve mentioned before, has just accepted the domain name for the site 8Chan, which left its old registrar because they expect trouble. The owner of Epik, Rob Monster, just posted a statement to this effect, and that he’s thinking about offering them anti-hacking protection services, too, just like he provides Gab.com with.

8Chan is the site where the last couple of mass shooters were found to be posting racist, pro-violence messages — and they were encouraged by other posters.

I’m not sure how much free speech for these guys Rob Monster is going to provide before he finds himself sanctioned by government. It will almost certainly depend who is governing. He looks like an aged Opie of Mayberry, and seeing his photo on forums about domaining is now disturbing.

Your first paragraph was pure Sanskrit but I do get that some sites are devoted to racism and violence.

It is hard to follow, for me too because there was a twist to the story later. First, the bad site fled to Epik so it could stay online. But now Epik is having trouble staying online, because another company they work with decided to stop doing business with them. Epik's servicing site, called BitMitigate, now is offline. Ha ha ha.

I simply cannot imagine getting a gun and randomly shooting people with whom you have no history and no connection. The shooters did not appear to me to be underprivileged or deprived. Their hate was fueled by our
President and his nasty rhetoric at his rallies. How in hell can you want to kill people you don't even know.

It's so confusing I sometimes think the world should not be quite so connected, seeing so much of what is being done, because it seems to be for effect. One shooter in the news means soon another one will do it.

We will rant and rave and point the finger at everyone except those we should--US! We have the power as individuals but aren't using it!! ARGH!
