Polish companies have been the predominant source of our recent uptime. However, Cogent's CEO seems directly invested in shutting us down. I have had multiple run ins with Cogent and this is their most aggressive.
Usually the Tier 1 ISPs have censored the Kiwi Farms by simply refusing to broadcast my IP addresses. However, since Liz Fong-Jones has been successful in censoring the Internet this way, I no longer even try using my IPs.
This time, Cogent has directly instructed a customer of theirs to stop providing us - by name, through the customer's own IP addresses - networking infrastructure.
No company has done this until now. This is the most invasive, direct actioning from any ISP thus far.
If you are in the industry you need to make it absolutely clear to Cogent that you intend to move your business elsewhere.
Just to confirm, Cogent's CEO is directly forcing two customers to drop us, not just one.
damn, I kinda didn't read any of that
Wrong board, retard
getting real sick of the 41%
that's a lot of fat

They could *easily* ignore the complaints, which come from an unrelated third party whom they refuse to reveal, and could be literally anyone down to an intern at Cogent with a sockpuppet account on Gmail
The kicker is that Section 230 gives them blanket immunity to anything they host. They are not liable for anything, especially not shit that's hosted on a customer of a customer of a customer's website.
They are deliberately choosing to become involved in content moderation, with the purpose of directed censorship.
Were Kiwifarms a left-wing political site, a "loli/shota" kiddie pron haven, a "furry" hangout with openly traded bestiality videos, or a how-to forum for Jihadi bombmakers, these grasping-at-straws 'complaints' would have been ignored.
hey man that's so interesting hope someone reads it some day because I didn't
Lol did you see this? Had me laughing pretty hard.
thanks, now i can be lazy and not post these boring updates to >>>/cow/ anymore
Oh, the irony, amiright?
HE uploaded porn of HIMSELF...
And now he's demanding WE remove it, while hiding behind Big Brother Internet.
ahahahaha fucking imagine being the bastard that had to read that fucking sentence I'd actually die
It's reasons like this I'm glad my site is smaller. Internet isn't the same anymore.
Somewhere at Hurricane or ZOGent - did I mention they're a JEWISH company, running out of Poland - there is at least one middle-management type who would trade places with the janitor to get out of being involved with this shit on behalf of a self-mutilated child grooming freak.
Whomever you are, I pity you for having to earn rent and groceries from a company that actually takes complaints from Elliot William Fong seriously.
lmao amen to that, I don't know how Null tolerates this shit. At least the worker gets paid for it, though I bet the sheer insanity and hilarity of it all makes it more tolerable. And we get gems like that email.
He's actually managed to get a bank account up and running again, even! After something like 10 years!
I'm throwing him $50 for the sheer lulz of the place, all that effort is worth one Steam game.
Ayyyyyy good shit :)
Cogent is an Israeli company run out of Poland, for those who don't know. The CEO in question is Dave Schaffer
This is a global account manager at once of the largest ISPs in the world. His job is to sell bandwidth. He is supposed to connect computers together. Instead, his concern is "anti-LGBTQ messaging".
This is it. This is the future. These are the people who think they get to decide what is on the Internet. Homeopathic 'medicine' scams, tranny grooming forums, hacker/warez sharing sites, and Islamic terrorist groups are all welcome...but dare not to offend the LGBTQPedos, or your right to free speech will be limited to as far as your own WiFi will reach.
From the river to the sea, the Internet should be free.
