    Regarding that, most possibly hosted in Russia, not by ddos-guard which is merely acting as an CDN. They had their domain pointed to another company for a short period of time before hiding. ipvolume, another safehaven for let's say, all sorts of uses. Could be residue from the fact Epik took them on as a registrar as they utilise ipvolume's ipspace themselves.

    It would be nice to have as much passion for education as there is for free speech. You can say whatever you want but what matters most is how you say it. Putting your thoughts and ideas into compelling arguments is difficult. Spewing hateful rhetoric is easy. Often times if we have the capacity to put our thoughts into orderly easily to articulate words that can be conveyed without inflaming emotions, we may be able to convince ourselves as others. What is the point of free speech if it only serves to feed or reinforce our preconceived ideas and alienate others? Where is the benefit?

    I don't understand why Epik has such a singular mission of what they consider free speech and evoke political ideals.

    @Rob Monster

    Here is a good slogan to put on Epik's homepage:

    "Defending Free Speech while Condemning Hateful Speech"

    Remember you can't pick and choose what hateful speech you want to fight or that you want to be tolerant of depending on your own political, religious, and racial beliefs, ideologies, and affiliations.

    You have to categorically condemn all Hateful Speech across the board.

    Also remember that you have to put it in to actual words in bold that everyone can see and read otherwise it won't look very sincere.

    IMO

    You are looking at this only from the domainer point of view (and you have the right to do so), but the situation is not as simple as that once you get into the non domainer World.

    Part of being a resilient registrar is having functioning and intelligent abuse and compliance departments that navigates the balance between what domain owners want and what policy requires.

    Part of being a resilient registrar is having a relationship with clients, knowing their heart and their intentions so that when mistakes happen, it is possible to discern whether to extend grace or accommodation.

    Those who take these things lightly, do so at their own risk. Epik does not treat this duty lightly and indeed it is a lot more work to actually care, versus blindly and robotically enforcing soulless policy.

    Rob, those who know you here are already aware of the fact that you have a good heart and that you go out of your way to help all domainers.

    But what about those who only get to hear about Epik through what is currently being discussed in the news media,

    If you put something in writing on your homepage like what I had suggested it will make those who are just hearing about Epik for the first time to know where exactly you stand when it comes to protecting Free Speech and condemning Hateful Speech.

    Rome was not built in a day. We are dealing with 2 cohorts of absolutists and bridging compromise as both sides realize that absolutism is the road to hell.

    As for messaging, we are focusing on the good. If you could see the one on one conversations that are happening, you would probably the Herculean effort to move lines behind the scenes on both sides.

    Rob, I appreciate all the good that you are doing behind the scenes,

    But you got to neutralize the negative image that the media is creating for Epik by saying something on Epik's homepage that can reassure those who are visiting for the first time and that might not necessarily know about all your efforts in protecting Free Speech and fighting Hateful Speech.

    Anyways, just an idea to try to help.

    IMO

    I figured Parler would be transferred to Epik and, though Epik is not hosting, wondered if Epik has the capacity if asked. Sorry this will bring more heat on Epik but that’s not their fault. Personally, it strengthens my resolve to use Epik as my preferred registrar, because I’d rather support a company with a free-speech philosophy and the gumption to stand up for their principles. :xf.cool:

    Heard about this on Infowars:

    That's great, the only thing is that we all need to find common grounds over the same Universal Principles and Values that have been derived through Logic and Compassion.

    Certain things have to be Universal such as:

    Free Speech

    Human Rights

    The Right for everyone to be able to live a productive, safe, righteous, healthy, and happy life.

    and

    What we consider to be Hateful Speech and how we are supposed to deal with it.

    If my health allows I will expand on this subject further in the near future at my soon to be developed website:

    HatefulSpeech.org

    I believe that we as the Human Race are all guilty of one thing or another, so instead of condemning this group or that group we all need to collectively ascend to a higher level of thinking and existence that is worthy of us being in charge of this World and that can give us the wisdom, the power, and the knowhow to make this a better place for everyone.


    IMO
