Supreme Court not taking the Malwarebytes case makes effective the Ninth Court conclusion that "[CDA 230] immunity is unavailable when a plaintiff alleges anticompetitive conduct."

This means @twitter has (probably) ALREADY lost CDA230 liability protections.
The @nypost just needs to sue @twitter and allege anticompetitive conduct to effectively strip @twitter of liability protections under CDA230 by claiming that twitter allows liberal media but not @nypost's investigative journalism.
Alternatively, the federal government (@FEC maybe?) could prosecute @twitter for election interference, and strip twitter of CDA230 liability protection by alleging anticompetitive conduct due to censorship of content from @realDonaldTrump.
Another avenue would be the @FCC, via @AjitPaiFCC, issuing an interpretation supporting the @GOP that @twitter is acting in bad faith, and opening them up to liability by effectively removing the "good samaritan" censorship clause of CDA 230 for them: Section 230(c)(2).

Many people have been asking me about tripcodes in the past week. Initially I was planning to write a document detailing the different types of tripcode, but have decided a tweet chain will allow for more engagement.
In August 2001, the first generation of the tripcode algorithm was designed and coded by FOX for the 2channel anonymous BBS using the perl crypt() function. Tripcodes were meant to be portable anonymous identities to be shared across sites that deployed the same algorithm.
A normal tripcode using the 2001 algorithm will display a single “!” before the tripcode text itself. Initially, the length of tripcode output in the original algorithm was 12 characters, then was adjusted to 8, and finally re-adjusted to the current 10 character length.

Hearing rumors that @Cloudflare was potentially hacked and some of their customer's private information is being published on the darknet. Have yet to confirm the rumors, but the way it was described to me sounded pretty bad.
Rumors that the real ip address internal DNS list that @Cloudflare maintains has been leaked, so if you have a website on cloudflare then it is likely going to be unmasked with this leak. Adjust accordingly.
If you need a Cloudflare alternative, reach out to @LimTheNick. He is the CEO of who run a great cloudflare alternative.

8kun is also available on the new and experimental lokinet. In my tests over the past few weeks, I have really warmed to lokinet and see it as a big improvement over tor. It is still experimental, so please be careful and do your own research before using the software. [...]
[...] After installing lokinet, you should be able to find 8kun at one of a few lokinet addresses: [...]
