8chan reemerges as "8kun" but can't keep its new website online

Source: Arstechnica

"Not sure how long we will be able to stay online with clearnet due to activists trying to deplatform us, and hackers preparing to ddos us. The tor hidden service should remain available regardless," Watkins wrote on Twitter Saturday. 8kun was also available on Loki, which Watkins described as an experimental alternative to Tor.

Dumped by Cloudflare, 8chan gets back online—then gets kicked off again
8kun is using Tucows as its registrar, and a Vice report says that 8kun's hosting service is the Russia-based Media Land LLC. Media Land was recently described as a "bulletproof hosting service" by security reporter Brian Krebs. It's not clear if the 8kun administrators found a full replacement for Cloudflare's anti-DDoS services.

"We have been under sustained attacks the past few days and doing everything we can to get things stable again," Watkins wrote on Twitter today, shortly before the site went down again. "The site is still online—albeit limping along—as we reorganize and restructure to deflect attacks coming from many angles."

...

8chan temporarily got back online in early August, shortly after losing Cloudflare service. 8chan switched its website to a provider called BitMitigate, the same company that began serving the Daily Stormer after Cloudflare cut it off. But that didn't last long, either, as BitMitigate's cloud infrastructure provider decided to shut off BitMitigate's service.

It looks like hate speech on the internet is not welcomed by the uber-geeks. Makes my day.

2. These people don't just cease to exist, just because you shut down a website.

So that's a big victory for kidding yourselves.

4. Just as a virus doesn't cease to exist because you develop a vaccine

But it is one more line of defense to their spread.

12. A very poor analogy.

The New Zealand shooter live streamed on Facebook before the video surfaced on 8chan.

The Dallas shooter's manifesto was on Instagram.

etc.

And 8chan was primarily a porn site, though being "uncensored" lead to other things.

13. Not a terribly informed comment, there

There's always going to be a tiny core that follows wherever they wind up, the point of de-platforming is to deny them a wider audience, i.e the casuals and the passers-by.

A recent and successful example;

Milo Yiannopoulos’s collapse shows that no-platforming can work

The former conservative media star is broke, saddled with as much as $4 million in debt. There’s a reason for that.

15. That may be true

But there's a big difference between getting to have your programs on ABC vs local broadcasting
The more difficult it is made, the more people they lose

8. 8chan? 8 Kun?

Chan and Kun are Japanese honorifics like San and Sama. I wonder who thought to use these?
They don't seem very honorable at all...

9. If I'm recalling correctly,

it all started with 2Channel (2Chan) in Japan, then some Americans started up 4Chan. 4Chan was notorious for posting things like kiddie porn, usually of a hentai variety. When 4Chan finally put the kibosh on that, some disgruntled 4Channers went their own way and started up 8Chan, which is (or was) the festering, stinky cesspool of the Internet.

10. It's supposed to mean they're big boys now?

chan = child | kun = adult

I could be very wrong.

I read it in this very good blog post that, aside from the subject matter, contains some great insights about isolation and the healing power of IRL community.

11. Chan is used for Babies and girls

Kun for boy friends (normally like a friend in high school.) Kun is used for males and never used for females. Chan is used exclusively for females and babies (despite their sex.) A kitten could be called "Chan" but an adult cat is never called Kun. Simply Neko. (Cat.) or even San which is semi formal.
