Cloudflare Reverses Long-Held Policy to Remain Content-Neutral, Ends Service to the Daily Stormer

Cloudflare on Wednesday reversed its long-held policy to remain content-neutral and terminated its service to neo-Nazi site, The Daily Stormer. Kate Conger reporting in Gizmodo writes: "Prince explained in an internal email to staffers that he doesn't think CEOs of internet companies should be in the position of policing content on their networks ... that's a job that should ultimately be left up to law enforcement if the content violates the law — but felt pushed to act because the operators of the Daily Stormer are "assholes." ... Prince wants to spark a conversation about how tech should respond to abhorrent content, and whether content should be policed by registrars, browsers, or social networks."

— "Earlier today, Cloudflare terminated the account of the Daily Stormer. We've stopped proxying their traffic and stopped answering DNS requests for their sites," Matthew Prince wrote in a blog post yesterday. "The tipping point for us making this decision was that the team behind Daily Stormer made the claim that we were secretly supporters of their ideology."
