      The side camera angle is so impersonal, like I get why the shot is there but yikes. I don't even feel like you're trying to give the information at that point, instead I'm nearby eavesdropping or something creepy. Thanks I guess...

          Note to video-makers: If you lack the budget for graphic overlays, do NOT decide to bounce the camera angle around the speaker's head. Just keep a single straight-on shot while they talk.

              Once you decide what kind of speech is not allowed, it opens the door for more restriction. You either have free speech, or you don't. If you don't like it, don't look at it. If people want to express hate, its not anyone's place to stop them from talking. You can attach terrorism or a whole list of awful titles to forms of speech you disagree with, but if you actively try to stop people from talking with each other, no matter how right you feel, you are the criminal.

                The quarter profile camera angle is rather unflattering.

                  It was engineered because they host Q posts - no other reason. This is a battle between the patriots and the Deep State.

                    Now I am afraid of someone shutting me down because of something I might say.
                    Tomorrow my channel could simply disappear. Get censored because of my freedom of the content i share.
                    I might not have freedom of speech.

                          I'd taking it down means that its now HARDER to spot these things and stop them from happening. Like you said, they can just goto a private chat now instead of being idiots and blaring their plans out to the open.

                              The problem with deflatforming 8chan is that they'll move either to a distributed platform, or as mentioned hide with Tor, which makes surveillance much harder. Free speech worked fine pre-internet.. But anonymity and the ability to congregate worldwide is an unsolvable problem bc the exact same phenomenon protects dissidents in China, but also radical terrorists (8chan, ISIS or whatever hateful ideology they happen to follow).

                                    The fact that a major internet media site is casually explaining how one could shut down a controversial website through targeting domain hosts is LEAGUES scarier to me than a bunch of anonymous strangers on the internet bitterly bickering on their image board.

                                    Seriously, censorship is unacceptable and a growing number of people are starting to stand up and say that. Knock it off.

                                                          Did Cloudflare switch the DNS over or did they just take it down? If the latter that does shut down a site until they can find new DNS servers and propagate them.
