the EFF has an article about how cloudflare and godaddy dropping the daily stormer is "dangerous" and how free speech should always be protected, even by private companies, because slippery slope


@lynnesbian Even though I disagree with them, I think the article is fairly balanced - for example, some of the concrete concerns they raise are that the right wing keep trying to classify Black Lives Matter and Antifa as hate/terrorist groups, and that this kind of deplatforming can work both ways.

From the article: "We at EFF defend the right of anyone to choose what speech they provide online; platforms have a First Amendment right to decide what speech does and does not appear on their platforms."
