    Parler CEO

    “ Parler CEO Goes Into Hiding Blaming Amazon Flak, Death Threats

    Many Parler employees are suffering harassment and hostility, fear for their safety and that of their families, and in some cases have fled their home state to escape persecution,” Matze’s lawyer said in Parler’s lawsuit aimed at forcing Amazon Web Services to put the platform back online. Matze had to “go into hiding with his family after receiving death threats and invasive personal security breaches.” The CEO didn’t specify the source of the threats, but his lawyer said in a filing that Matze’s covert action was required because he’s been spotlighted “as the CEO of the company AWS continues to vilify.”

    That wasn’t a problem for him when his users were doing it on his platform

    And why threats on anybody’s life not getting same attention if President name is mentioned? It’s not fecking freedom of speech issue

    What has Amazon got to do with the death threats? Did Amazon itself, it's employees or workers threaten them?

    The company breached Amazon's terms of service so they need to find a new hosting service. Surely there is one in Russia, Ukraine or elsewhere that will allow them to host their site?

        What TOS did they violate? Not aligned with the same political viewpoint? is that part of the TOS? You have open calls for terrorism on twitter and they are still able to freely use amazon's services.

          Twitter got very harsh moderating that banned millions of Twitter accounts for feck all well before they banned Trump

          Plus Twitter does not focus on terrorist types, unlike Parler did - a big mistake to try to focus on hosting for extremists

          Notice that Parler not even disputing violation of ToS - just tosh about "political" decision and "anti-trust", which basically tells you that Amazon was 100% within their rights to kick them off.

                They removed bots. Apparently you can pay to have a lot of followers - imagine that!

                    It's the selective application of the TOS that's the issue never said they didn't violate them. Twitter does violate them as well. Plenty of riots and civil unrest have been openly advocated for and planned on Twitter. Full out calls for terrorism from radical governments have been left up.

                    It's crazy. I'm not a conservative by the way, voted labour (i know crazy) and have voted for a left wing party every election across both countries i am eligible to vote in. I just hate this cancel culture tulip. When did liberal politics become the politics of censorship, sickens me.
