Gab, a twitter alternative that welcomes all comers,1 has lost its hosting after the Pantsuit made a fuss over one of their anti-Trump users trying to shoot up a ceremony celebrating the Jewish Covenant of Circumcision (archived). The shooter happened to have an account on Gab where he was likely radicalized into terrorism by US "law enforcement", and an ISP calling itself "Joylent" decided they couldn't continue taking Gab's money while the media was talking about Gab. Paypal joined in and decided they couldn't handle Gab's money.
In this world where Bitcoin exists with the Republican, Pantsuit resistant, PizarroISP running, there is little reason for people interested in publishing with censorship resistance to resort to heathen solutions open to all comers.
While Gab insists they are a "free speech" alternative to Twitter, they crack down on "illegal content" in a disappointing buy in to Pantsuit insanity. ↩
