Big disagree on my side.Good fucking riddance. The place had a counter as to how many people it induced to commit suicide. What a dumpster fire of a place. I get being an edgy 13 year old but, yeah... you grow out of that shit. Or you should, at least.
On a side note, so many people do not understand what the freedom of speech means.
It means that you can't get arrested for saying (nearly) anything. This is a wonderful and very important thing. Just because you have the luxury of the freedom of speech from a governmental standpoint doesn't mean you're not going to get pushback from private citizens that think your shit is abhorrent. I'm not sure why some people can't understand the delineation here.
We have these government granted monopolies called corporations, that are doing the censorship and spying work, so the Government can wash its hands. People are getting their careers destroyed and kicked out of banks by "private citizens" etc.
Your line of thinking did work in the past more, when you had an Absolute Monarch like Charles I. of the UK or Soviet Russia. Sure then, you literally had a centralized list of bad thought and other stuff that were law. The problem now is that "private citizens" have way more control over our lives now than the empty suits they put into the offices. And no, you don't even get to have the list of "no-no" things.
You need to update your thinking to this day and age when a handful of corporations decide what is reality for the vast majority of the people and they can ban anybody for questioning the dogma. Because it's "disinformation" or "harassment".
Is KiwiFarms a dumb gossip site? Yes, it is.
Is this situation lubrication for the slippery slope for the further censorship of the Internet? Yes, it is.
Also, sure they get rid of Null and his gossip site. Now what? Yet one more precedent was set that you can just nuke a community because some mentally ill people didn't like it. Precedents never go away. The internet hate mob will just look for a new target anyway, the corporations will be more confident in refusing service to people because of no-no thoughts and people trying to make content will get the memo more that in this anarcho tyranny don't even try to rock the boat or you may be hammered out of the things you have built.
There is no public vs private, there is only power...
Also muh suicidie, how many people did Twitter, Facebook, etc. killed by inciting the Arab Spring? The heads of the companies were bragging about how they riled up the mob. Will they be held responsible for practically pushing and helping to organize the US riots of 2020 (defying even the all mightly lockdown they were pushing) and caused billions of property damage to the poorest communities? Nah. I will care about punishing jay walking when the psycho with the bloody chainsaw is taken care of.
