8chan's founder says "shut it down" https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/04/technology/8chan-shooting-manifesto.html
@cwebber Uh, as an aside, but... did Cloudflare's executive just admit they effectively operate as a giant spying apparatus for US law enforcement?
(I mean... I know they do, but like. It's unusual that they'd outright come out and *say* it.)
@cwebber The text in the original NYT article was even more blatant, IMO. Cloudflare walked it back su-uu-uper quickly, then kicked off 8chan released that blog post (obviously after the lawyers and PR people had gotten to it).
I only grabbed an excerpt of the original, but it was quite explicitly Prince saying, "If we kicked 8chan off our network […] law enforcement would have less visibility into what’s going on." Which... 😬
