Daily Stormer binned by yet another registrar, due to business risks

Re: Quick note from easyDNS

Forgive me, for copying and paste my response to the exact same argument over on our blog:

There are over thousands of registrars and pretty well anybody can become one (hell, after the drop catching bubble burst you can buy a registrar now for a few thousand bucks).

They all set their own acceptable use policies and have their own risk tolerance. Somebody running a website that absolutely nobody wants to touch sounds more likely their problem, not the registrars. (Gee, could it possibly be because nobody wants to do business with self-proclaimed fascists spewing utter hatred toward others, including our families and our customers? How unreasonable.)

Further:

If DailyStormer really wants somebody to take them on, they’re going to have to pony up a lot of money to do it (expecting some registrar to take on this risk for a $15 annual domain fee is delusional) and at some price level there will either be a taker, or somebody will enter the field to service the need (providing internet infrastructure to Nazis).

(Maybe DS can empty out that bitcoin wallet of theirs with over $80,000 and buy themselves a registrar)

As for us, we’re not interested at any price and that is totally our prerogative.
