See source... there is more photo/embed content than meaningful text.
A website with 800k users, erased from the Internet, thanks in no small part to far-left activists.
Isn’t there a law against restraint of trade?
I've heard it's back up.
“Restraint of trade is a common law doctrine relating to the enforceability of contractual restrictions on freedom to conduct business. It is a precursor of modern competition law.”
Not yet but it should be soon. Maybe by this weekend.
Not yet but soon
keep in mind Brazils Bolsonaro supporters had to migrate to Gab, when they were banned from WhattsApp. all the censorship going on is meant to shut down conservatives:
20 Oct: Bloomberg: WhatsApp Bans More Than 100,000 Accounts in Brazil Election
By Sarah Frier and Giulia Camillo; With assistance by David Biller
WhatsApp banned hundreds of thousands of accounts in Brazil as the Facebook Inc. messaging service struggles to contain spam, misinformation and political shenanigans ahead of a runoff election in Latin Americas largest country...
Facebook set up a war room to stem the tide of hate speech, false information and other damaging content during Brazils election this month, marking a test for the social network ahead of the November midterm elections in the U.S...
Bolsonaro wrote on Twitter that his opponents party isnt being damaged by fake news, but rather by the TRUTH. ...
30 Oct: ABC Australia: Whats the story behind Gab, the favoured platform of the US alt-right?
The Signal By Stephen Smiley and Angela Lavoipierre
And there are also other communities for instance, there was an incident recently where there was something going on with Brazilian social media so a lot of Brazilians set up accounts on Gab.
(Will Sommers, The Daily Beast) So essentially, communities that have sort of been exiled from other social media platforms end up on Gab....
18 Oct: The Hill: Citing hate speech, Google suspends social media site favored by alt-right from app store
By Harper Neidig
Gab made the announcement in a tweet on Thursday night.

Gab (@getongab) August 17, 2017
The site has attracted right-wing internet celebrities who have been banned by Twitter, like former Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulos, and those who believe mainstream social media sites are suppressing conservative viewpoints...
But Gab spokesman Utsav Sanduja said that the company thinks the move may be related to its criticisms of Google in recent weeks over the firing of James Damore, a programmer who wrote a divisive internal memo on the tech industrys workforce gender disparity.
We suspect that this is a form of reprisal from Google, Sanduja said in a phone interview.
Gab has been on the Google Play store for months, so its concerning that it is just now being booted off, Sanduja said. He also noted that their app has been rejected from the Apple store nine times because of that companys hate speech policy.
Its not like Google didnt know that Apple rejected us for these reasons, he said. So they allowed us because they knew that we were following the rules....
A spokeswoman for Google was not immediately able to comment...
I haven’t been on gab for a while but I think I’ll be spending more time on there once they’re back up.
I don’t see why they’re not back up yet. Doesn’t take long to get new hosting set up and I know there has to be some hosting company that doesn’t care about anything but profit.
If nothing else, he could start a gofundme to buy a web server and a business ISP connection with good upload speed and he could eventually sell hosting space to others.
Sure hope so, didn't realize how addicted I'd become to the site. I keep checking the link several times a day.
Not quite that simple. Andrew is working on a longer more secure plan for Gab for down the road and he's laying part of the ground work for it as her goes along I suspect. Check out the story at the link below to get a glimpse of what he is working towards. Written by a left leaning techie but it is for the most part an honest and illuminating and informative article regarding Torbas goals to secure Gab and make it bullet proof against future interference from the Masters of the Universe and other assorted Freedom of Speech enemies. I actually enjoyed reading it and found it to be very illuminating as well as informative.
