Stormfront, the oldest neo-Nazi forum on the web, has been shut down by its name provider, Network Solutions, and the domain officially put on hold. The news followed the shutdown of DailyStormer, another supremacist site.

Stormfront began in 1990s as a dial-up BBS and then morphed into a website and forum in about 1995. It has been registered at Network Solutions since 1995.

The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Executive Director Kristen Clarke said that her organization took “action against Stormfront.”

“Their website is a vehicle used to promote racially-motivated violence and hate,” she wrote. The group told Network Solutions that Stormfront was violating their terms of service.

the internet provider closed them down after a group of attorneys pointed out they were violating the providers TOS. TOS are not government.

The group told Network Solutions that Stormfront was violating their terms of service

It does make a really, really big difference. If the govt had shut down stormfront I too would be against the govt shutting down any form communication unless it was something like shouting fire in a theater or something.

Since you are so knowledgeable about Constitutional rights I will not dumb down the idea of a hecklers veto where a private party can suppress exercise of free speech by another because they object to the content.

The argument against regulating the internet as a utility has been the freedom from censorship. When internet companies adopt the Chinese communist censorship model it undermines their rationale for independence.

You go ahead and shred the first amendment in support of the mob censoring unpopular speech.

A group of activist lawyers prompted by the corrupt and politically biased SPLC gets to censor internet content. Welcome to the new era of vigilante rule.
