We just sent notice we are terminating service for 8chan. There comes a time when enough is enough. But this isn't the end. We need to have a broader conversation about addressing the root causes of hate online.
The mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio are horrific tragedies. In the case of the El Paso shooting, the suspected terrorist gunman appears to have been inspired by the forum website...

You, quoted, yesterday, saying supporting 8chan was a "moral obligation." Today you discovered actual morality. You're not fooling anyone you sickening ghoul. You're stoked to support the worst people on earth.

You're one of the few people on earth to express companywide regret after you stopped supporting an actual Nazi website.

I doubt his business is actually in any sort of danger I'm sure they still host all types of terrible content. At least it's a good move. 8chan will no doubt find another host that doesn't give a shit but at least for now they will have to actively seek out new ways to hate.

Now do KiwiFarms. Is GOMI sheltered by you too? You've got a lot more sites under your umbrella just as threatening to that shiny new IPO you're doing this extremely overdue minimal thing for.

Its ALL about the IPO (I agree with the decision, but I have strong feeling they (nor their VC firm backers) want this news taking down their collective payday. I hope I am wrong, but let's see how they continue moving forward (seeing them vs. FSLY will be interesting).

The truth is, they'll be fine. CloudFlare is a big part of the infrastructure of the Internet. This is why it's so important to keep people like this honest. Usually nobody pays attention to who CloudFlare (and a lot of other companies for that matter) is doing business with.
