    Paypal works with facebook where murders are live streamed on facebook live

    Pqypal works with twitter where Isis and pedophiles organize. Where racism proliferares and violent arson and riots are organized.
    Live streamed murders aren't negative publicity?

    What part of they should handle that stuff do you struggle with? Obviously if some pedo stuff is happening on Twitter, it should get handled. That's hard to believe, it would happen on a public place like that. So I don't even have any idea of what you're talking about.

    Who is "they"

    Paypal continues to do business on negative publicity channels like facebook and twitter, so that excuse to cut off gab is null and void

    and that is the craziest sh*t I have heard about too, unbelievable that it has happened multiple times and it just fades to the shadows, I guess trying to fight a multi-billionaire might be the equation.

    They're supposed to moderate. Go reread the quote on how they feel about that. This isn't a live streaming service.

    There is no way to stop it IMO, It is part of this new world we live in, new for me anyway, being in my 50's age wise. Technology has man by the balls.

    gab has no legal obligation to moderate. They do the best they can

    Not right now. Maybe they'll learn from their past mistakes once they get up and running again. And based on what you said earlier, about privacy, maybe less.

    They're not perfect. But I don't think they've done much wrong. They'll probably boost moderation. Btw I don't think the killer posted anything violent on gab. I haven't seen all his posts but from what i saw it wasnt illegal or violent

    Key point there - both Google and FB taking big $ for ads that sway elections, as well as not dealing with organised bots that influence elections and public opinion.

    Politicians seem reluctant so far to deal with the effects of social media platforms becoming news sources and effectively publishers, and replacing MSM (main stream media). Many people only get news from one end of the political spectrum now and have no way of checking it. That makes division, paranoia and hatred more likely if you never hear from or understand people you disagree with.

    Think about all those politicians using FB, gmail, Netflix - those giants know everything about politicians, do the politicians really want to risk upsetting the giants?

    No different than Gab, in fact Gab worked with law enforcement. Different than what Twitter does.

    As an Israeli Jew, and someone who has zero tolerance to hate, I think that what Godaddy did is BAD.

    Telling Gab to transfer their domain or it's suspended is acceptable, because the website is against their TOS.
    but only 24hrs? are you kidding me? should've given them a few weeks at least.

    This is weird, and I'm actually shocked they gave them only a day to transfer their domain

    how could discussing about abortion
    or alternative methods of reproduction
    be wrong?

    conclusion:
    discussing adult domain names may be wrong too

    Even here, on NP, you can often see some folks complaining for some adult domains, sending complaints to registrars etc. What a crazy snowflake world.

    Sorry for off topic.
