So the Florida “bomber” (I put that in quotes because the things he mailed were nothing more than props – none of them were actual bombs) had an account on Gab. Therefore, Gab’s hosting company has decided to terminate their account effective 9 am on Monday, basically destroying the site, of which, according to Andrew Torba (the owner), will be down for weeks.
The left is pure evil. Plenty of past shooters had accounts with YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Those respective networks didn’t have to be shut down entirely because of one bad user or even a sizable number of bad users. Then again, they all have their own servers.
What pisses me off is that the Gab team didn’t anticipate this. They should have been working on this ages ago. First, Microsoft boots them off of their Azure service and now their host provider does the same thing, all because of ONE user! Gab deleted the guy’s account, saved his posts and forwarded them to law enforcement. And yet this happens anyway. What the hell?
They need to get their own servers. Maybe something will happen tomorrow. I hope so. I really liked Gab, and I can’t imagine using anything else. I am so angry right now.
