Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Troubles are mounting for a Texas website used to report violators of the state's extreme anti-abortion legislation after the site was forced offline by two different web hosting platforms.



Admin's note: Participants in this discussion must follow the site's moderation policy. Profanity will be filtered. Abusive conduct is not allowed.

"The site was removed from its original web host by the provider GoDaddy on Friday before being suspended by its new host, an agency known for providing services to far-right groups.

The website's difficulties were compounded when GoDaddy, which provides the servers where the website lives, said the site had violated its privacy policies that bar the sharing of third-party personal information including data related to medical issues such as abortion.

The site was then moved to Epik, according to domain registration data first reported by Ars Technica. Epik is known for its "anything goes" attitude towards web hosting, servicing sites that other companies have deplatformed elsewhere for hate speech and other content violations " including 8chan, Gab and Parler.

According to reports from the Daily Beast, Epik contacted the website about potential violation of its own rules concerning the collection of medical data about people obtaining abortions.

"We contacted the owner of the domain, who agreed to disable the collection of user submissions on this domain," it said in a statement to the Daily Beast."

Damn! And I was going to rat on Sniper's parents!

Unfortunately too many places for them to land. One will stick sooner or later.

That is an excellent point. ANY site that aids and abets disclosure of this data could face legal action fairly easily.

Stupid people make stupid laws.
