The terrifying power of internet censors

After the white-nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month where a man drove a car into a crowd, killing a counter-demonstrator, the American neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer published a long, hate-riddled post mocking the victim. Outcry over the article led its domain registrar, GoDaddy, to end The Daily Stormer’s service.

The site then registered with Google, which also quickly cancelled its hosting. It wasn’t until Cloudflare, a website security and performance service, dropped the site as a client.
