A few thoughts here: - When Gab was on the cusp of being done, I did apply some diplomacy skills to buy them time. This is where I engaged with ANTIFA, SPLC, HuffPo, WaPo, NYT, WSJ. In the end they lit me up but I certainly did my best to make the case that Gab has some supervision and should be given a chance to prove it. - In retrospect, my sincere efforts to find compromise with the aforementioned groups was not that successful. There might have been some detente, but they vilified me instead. Some of the people on this blog believe some of what has been written about me when much of it is simply not true. - As for Gab, my involvement there is almost nil now. I have not spoken to them in months. The last contact was actually with their attorney. We simply don't talk. They did register Dissenter.com with us and are happy with us, but we are just a supplier to them now and that's fine by me. - As for Chris "Crying Nazi" Cantwell, it is no secret that I tried to engage him to drop his shock jock routine. I was not successful there either. And in the end, he kept testing the boundaries until Andrew Torba booted him earlier this month. It was not me who sent him packing though. I was never an admin there. - As for ANTIFA, they never met with me. I am still hoping they will meet someday. We would happily be their registrar too. I realize some doubt that, but I am serious. We specialize in resiliency, and can manage the controversy. We will however enforce the law. We don't protect criminals. Hope that helps.
