"Is this the day the Internet dies?"
Massive proxy service Cloudflare's CEO made a hard call yesterday: he kicked The Daily Stormer, a neo-nazi white supremacy website, the hell off his service. While he had every legal right to do so - they reserve the right to refuse service to anyone - they have to grapple with some very real ethical implications of their actions. Whether you find the Daily Stormer's content and worldview repellent makes no never mind - true freedom means we tolerate opinions and viewpoints we don't share - this act brings us down the very slippery slope of censorship and net neutrality.

His blog post goes over what was done, how they came to the decision to do it, and what it means for their - and our - future online.

"While lovers of liberty in all lands have urged the necessity of freedom of speech, none put the case more pointedly than Voltaire when he said: 'I wholly disapprove of what you say—and will defend to the death your right to say it.'”

Truly abhorrent. The act of censorship, that is.
