    Controversial web forum 8chan has moved its domain name to a new registrar after it was linked to at least one of the two mass shootings that occurred in the US over the weekend.

    According to Whois records, it’s just jumped to racist-friendly Epik, having been registered at Tucows since 2003.

    The switch appears to have happened in the last few hours. At time of writing, you’re going to get different results depending which Whois server you ping.

    Some servers continue to report Tucows as the registrar of record, perhaps using cached data, but Epik’s result looks like this:

    So with gab and 8chan having found homes at Epik, the question is....

    Is a registrar responsible for content or is it the webhost that should do the censoring?

    Was cloudflare right to boot them off?

    Or should there simply be no censorship?

    What about consequences?

    In my opinion the hosting platform should be the one that must censor certain stuff by using their TOS power. I do not see any particular reason why the registrar should be held responsible for what is happening on that specific domain.

    This is only an abuse so their registrar company image wouldn't be affected negatively, nothing more.

    Every race is guilty of racism. To the best of my understanding, white people are the least racist people on earth, yet they get most of the blames. That's not fair.

    We have "Black Caucus" in the USA Congress, to what end? That is pure racism in plain sight that shouldn't be condoned. The whole world would go mad if ever there's something called White Caucus in the USA Congress or anywhere. But because it's black, everyone pretends that is ok.

    We always see Africans saying they are the best, you see Arabs saying they are the best, you see Asians saying they are the best. But once the White-men says they are the best, it comes racism. Why?

    We are free in this world today because of white people and I salute them for that. I salute them for technological inventions of which they are responsible for the 99%. I salute them for democracy and freedom. I salute them for promoting equality among all men. They are the reason the world is free today. I salute them for the countless battles they fought to prevent Persians from conquering the world which would have plunged humanity into darkness. I salute them for education, science, and medicine. For finding cures to countless of diseases that could have wiped us all years ago.

    Yes, they have their short-falls and so do every other race. The earlier we stopped criminalizing white people for their existence, the better. If other people can speak of their racial pride without fear, why should the white be afraid to do the same. or be held accountable for doing the same?

    We overly blame white people for everything, and the people who promotes and sponsor these mindset are the real racist bad people who are trying to takeover this world. These people still practice barbarism till this day. Let us unite and fight them. Let us stop apportioning blames to the white man for merely existing. Let us look for the good in everyone.

    Cheers!

    No one should censor any platform. Each individual should be held accountable for their own actions.

    Nut cases going to write wherever they have an audience. PPL post weird/illegal stuff on facebook and everywhere! If 8chan is known to nurture bad ideas like this, then it's FBI etc job to order it shut it down, not host or domain provider. Hosting providers, registry ppl can't be held accountable to police the whole internet traffic though their service. Don't let your S^$t roll down hill.

    You knows nothing about history. Your one sided sentiment is not history.

    "the hosting platform should be the one that must censor certain stuff" So say, twitter has it's hand clean, it doesn't have to censor what's on it's site? Known war criminals use twitter every single day. Just the HOST is responsible? Why would anyone be in business as a host, if this were the case? QUIT passing the ball to the peons, or soon you'll have yo' mama censoring your every post, maybe the ISP should be scanning out traffic too, to make sure no illegal stuff is being sent though their centers. It's so easy, right?

    Internet-censorship will not remove any crazy people from this world.
    There need to be other methods in order to prevent crazy people from doing crazy things.

    It seems we are moving back into times of the DDR with Farcebook and Twatter behaving like STASI-agents.
    Internet-censorship will only make things worse.

    I agree with some what you said but ^
    Has absolutely nothing to do with race.

    I'd suggest to get and study 'Guns, Germs, and Steel' by 'Jared Diamond' for those who want to make an educated comment.

    The 'white-man' just got lucky.

    On subject, that's some poorly written piece from a journalistic point of view.

    Nature is racist, unfortunately.

    It's been a tough realization.

    8chan, Megaphone for Gunmen, Has Gone Dark. ‘Shut the Site Down,’ Says Its Creator.

    [​IMG]
    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/04/technology/8chan-shooting-manifesto.html

    “Shut the site down,” Mr. Brennan said in an interview. “It’s not doing the world any good. It’s a complete negative to everybody except the users that are there. And you know what? It’s a negative to them, too. They just don’t realize it.”

    Angry as I was, as we all were, I was tempted to laugh whenever he opened his mouth. The transition from libertine to prig was so complete.

    As long as your a liberal it's perfectly acceptable to incite anger, Internet mobs and condemn people by association.

    @dande thinks for himself. He also happens to be kind of accurate.

    There are lots of inconvenient truths and facts.

    The science of intelligence is over 100 years old.

    We don't learn the obscure truths and facts, or at least few do.

    They are complicated and we are only ~3000 to 5000 years out of the Bicameral Mind phase. Some are still in it (schizophrenics) and most others in transient states of Consciousness (mostly operating subconsciously)

    Noone here has mentioned the roll of firearms in these tragedies.

    How many people have to be killed before we realize that these weapons must be carefully permitted to only qualified individuals. The penalties for misuse must be severe.

    As to the racism issue, it just plain stupid. Anyone that thinks through the shallow arguments in support of superior or inferior races as a whole will find that all human beings are one species, are born the same, bleed the same, procreate the same, and die the same. Each unique, yet connected.

    I really don't subscribe to the negative impact of television and internet media, although I do believe that some desensitization occurs.

    There are some mentally ill people out there. Always has been and always will be.

    I hope something can be done to prevent these kinds of killing sprees.

    I don't blame Epik with trying to be neutral. Let web hosts be web hosts, law enforcement be law enforcement.

    so if 8chan publish any controverisal content,
    you will judge and sentence anybody that sold them a pizza,
    rent them a car, rent them a bicycle and even the taxi who drove them to their office
    the guy who rent them an office, rent them anything.....
    anybody that have come to do any kind of business with 8chan is guilty and waiting for your sentence

    @MapleDots is that your notion of freedom??

    No one on here has asked @Rob Monster to contribute even though his company is being called "racist friendly" ?

    Edit below:

    Should have the decency when discussing someones business or views to tag them imo.....

    @dande you are utterly misguided.

    I am from Bengal, India and many people my region fought against EFFING english and died, who colonized India because of some subservient slave minded Indians.

    Crazy people exists everywhere among White/Black/Yellow/Brown.
