    Guys, this thread is about internet policy and net neutrality, not free speech. I think we have a free speech thread somewhere, and I think like this discussion might be better placed there. This isn't the general "a thing on the internet" thread.

    8chan is still down but the Daily Stormer is back up.

    For now, at least. Anglin and the Daily Stormer just lost a major lawsuit:




    BREAKING: We won our lawsuit against the Daily Stormer!

    We sued this white supremacist website after they led a racist online harassment campaign against a former Black student at American Univ.

    This case should send a strong message to other racists across the US.

    Our victory against the Daily Stormer marks the first decision to ever hold that online harassment can interfere with equal rights to enjoy public accommodations.

    We will continue fighting to eliminate hate root and branch.

    Almost every state AG is investigating Google on antitrust grounds:
    A group of 50 attorneys general from 48 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico unveiled a major antitrust investigation of Google Monday, sharply escalating the regulatory scrutiny facing the tech giant.

    The probe will focus on whether Google (GOOG) has harmed competition and consumers, looking at least initially into the company's conduct in its search, advertising and other businesses, though it may expand from there.

    Speaking to reporters in front of the US Supreme Court Monday, a group of 13 attorneys general struck a bipartisan tone. Karl Racine, attorney general of the District of Columbia, said it was an "unusual setting" for a group that typically disagrees on issues ranging from gun control to reproductive rights.

    "But we are acting as one today," he said.

    Only CA and AL are not participating.

    CA's not being involved is weird and I can only assume it's because they're HQ'd here.

    Yeah, California is hardly a paradise. I moved this year and California was one of my top "no fucking way" states. And for people with money, there are tons of places in the US that are anything but the hellscape that it's fashionable in California to label everything outside their borders.

    Yeah, but those places all have weather. And who can be bothered with that.

    The lack of seasons is my penultimate complaint with SoCal, just behind the housing prices.

    I'm pretty sure he was being a little snarky less about not-California and more about not-has-somewhat-reasonable-labor-laws.

    Also, everyone knows that bumbfuck Galt-Gulch wasteland is in California. :V

    Come visit Melbourne, Australia.

    While we don't get the dangerous weathers, we definitely have days where there's frost, sun, rain, hail, and decent winds, all in a single day.

    Aaaaand.... we don't have Donald Trump?

    Got some shitty politicians, so you won't feel completely out of place.

    And it's becoming summer, so there's warm weather ahead.

    Don't mean "and" as in what else you got.

    Meant "and" as in "is that the craziest the weather gets there, or is there more?"

    Because you're basically describing what a quarter of the days for the next three months are going to be here.

    Not me. I was Midwesterner, and I now live in California, and the so-called "Lack of Weather" is AMAZING here. Simply amazing. Fuck snow, fuck changing your fucking tires every winter, and fuck super-hot scorching summers.
