Amazon has kicked them off of their web services.
There used to be rules governing how much media one entity could own in a single market or over all. Not anymore. Now the Disneys, the Clear Channels, the Sinclairs, and the Nexstars of the world own nearly everything.Right now I wish I knew more of the history of Hearst and Pullitzer, and the printing press in general. At any time in history was the ability to mass print ideas as limited as the ability to host large websites is now?
Payment processing, two-factor authentication, captcha, DoS protection, and probably stuff I don't even know about. They need a lot of pieces, and Amazon is one of the few who hold all of them.They'll have to provide the entire infrastructure and payment processing, too. No one's willing to do business with them anymore.
If this was a platform used by Antifa, BLM, the communists, Women's Rights, or a similar domestic terrorist organization, no doubt they would.Sweet Enola Gay! You know the NSA has been exploiting that.
This. I've seen so many statements about this along the lines of "wow, imagine if someone competent had attempted all of this" and I can't help but wonder how many competent people are in there keeping their heads down because they're, you know...competent.

A lot of stupid people doing stupid things.
But... how many smarter people were among them? How many foreign agents used this as an opportunity? How many truly dangerous people were there, who knew enough to leave their phone at home?
