Tor “can’t build free and open source tools” and stop racists from using them
The Tor Project has reiterated its absolutist commitment to free speech, saying that even though Daily Stormer recently moved to a Tor onion service, the organization won’t do anything to stop the “hate-spewing website.”
Various online services have begun to re-evaluate their willingness to do business with sites that publish obviously vile content in the wake of last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Earlier in the week, Google removed the Gab app on the Google Play store, and Squarespace said it would disable some of the offensive sites that it hosts as identified as hateful by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Most famously within the tech world, Daily Stormer itself was recently booted from CloudFlare’s CDN service after the company had initially said it would not do so.
