I believe that May be Evidence of a “free speech prohibiting sanction”. Could it be?

not at all "absolutely cockball prohibition" seems more like it. A bunch of hobos moved into the basement, then decided to use the place to annoy the world, then took the piss when we asked them to settle. Good riddance

It appears the removal was due to failure to conform to censorship. Is there any evidence to the contrary?

you are asking me to disprove an unproven supposition.

You prove it was due to censorship....

Then I'll get off my arse and prove you wrong, which is easy, as its all documented.

You are the one who has to prove your position.

I believe I am asking for discovery. Any one kind enough to help out?

They had doxxed and/or were harassing someone irl...something...something, the hosting company got involved with the complaint.

But yeah, Boobob summed it up more creatively.

they even went nicely, in the end. Found their own server, free of silly things like 'site rules'. good on them.

who specifically is they? what was the form and nature of the alleged harassment?

[–]Zahn 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

I don't know exactly who "they" were. I would guess just a handful of bad actors, not necessarily regular members of Ip2. Nor do I know the nature of the doxxing and harassment. They complained to Saidit's host, which in turn threatened to shut down Saidit unless Ip2 was removed. Hosting companies are stupid.

I'm sure Mags knows all the juicy details.

The courtesy is appreciated. It seems the public domain is lacking firsthand testimony.

No. It was a practical move, although yes that is pretty close to the line: 'sorry guys you have to go elsewhere'. Basically it was the only way to be accepted at our hosting company, as I understand it. It had nothing to do with divulging information.
