Terminating Service for 8Chan
Unfortunately, we have seen this situation before and so we have a good sense of what will play out. Almost exactly two years ago we made the determination to kick another disgusting site off Cloudflare's network: the Daily Stormer. That caused a brief interruption in the site's operations but they quickly came back online using a Cloudflare competitor. That competitor at the time promoted as a feature the fact that they didn't respond to legal process. Today, the Daily Stormer is still available and still disgusting. They have bragged that they have more readers than ever. They are no longer Cloudflare's problem, but they remain the Internet's problem.

I have little doubt we'll see the same happen with 8chan. While removing 8chan from our network takes heat off of us, it does nothing to address why hateful sites fester online. It does nothing to address why mass shootings occur. It does nothing to address why portions of the population feel so disenchanted they turn to hate. In taking this action we've solved our own problem, but we haven't solved the Internet's.

In the two years since the Daily Stormer what we have done to try and solve the Internet’s deeper problem is engage with law enforcement and civil society organizations to try and find solutions. Among other things, that resulted in us cooperating around monitoring potential hate sites on our network and notifying law enforcement when there was content that contained an indication of potential violence. We will continue to work within the legal process to share information when we can to hopefully prevent horrific acts of violence. We believe this is our responsibility and, given Cloudflare's scale and reach, we are hopeful we will continue to make progress toward solving the deeper problem.

Twitter Backs Off Broad Limits on ‘Dehumanizing’ Speech - The New York Times
Twitter said it had ratcheted down the policy’s scope partly because it kept running into obstacles. When the company sought users’ feedback last year on what it thought such speech might include, people pushed back on the proposed definitions. Over months of discussions late last year and early this year, Twitter employees also worried that such a policy might be too sweeping, potentially resulting in the removal of benign messages and in haphazard enforcement.

This Man Spent 25 Years Fighting Newspapers Over Anti-Gay Reporting
Poofters. Benders. Shirtlifters. Bumboys. Lezzies. This was how British tabloid headlines referred to gay men and lesbians in the 1980s — an echo of the taunts heard on the street before a beating. The stories beneath would expand on the pejoratives, justifying them with news of “sick” “evil”, “predatory” gays; all arising from a presumption: that readers would agree.

It came at the worst time. After the burgeoning liberation movement and the shirts-off, arms-up disco era, gay men started dying in their hundreds, then thousands.

As Aids hit in the early 1980s, Fleet Street, then the home of Britain’s newspaper industry, responded by blaming gay people for their own deaths; lying about the causes of the disease; calling for a return to the closet, to abstinence, and even to prison. Later, when the Conservative government gagged teachers from discussing homosexuality, many newspapers roared in approval.

But there was one gay man who decided to fight back, with words of his own.

From 1983, Terry Sanderson began to document newspapers’ slurs against the community in a column for Gay Times magazine (then the most important gay publication) called Media Watch. He dissected the worst — the myths, the stereotyping, the outing of members of the public — and responded to the onslaught with wit and fury. All while providing LGBT people with something invaluable: a voice.

Caught Between Borders: Closed borders and closed minds are trapping African LGBTI asylum seekers in hostile countries
Ultimately, Nathan believes that the current asylum system is broken for LGBTI asylum seekers and cannot offer them adequate protection. It is “virtually impossible to guarantee safety to someone who is LGBTI and on African soil,” she said. “To be safe, they need to be resettled in a third country — a country that is known to be friendly to LGBTI people,” like the United States, Canada, or one in Europe.

For many, however, that safety is out of reach. Resettlement through UNHCR is a long and arduous process: According to the agency, only 4 percent of refugees in Africa considered to be in need will be resettled in third countries this year, after waiting between one to five years. Because of the persecution LGBTI asylum seekers face in refugee camps, UNHCR tries to prioritize their resettlement — even so, it can take years before the process is complete.

Inside hate groups on Facebook, police officers trade racist memes, conspiracy theories and Islamophobia | Reveal
More than 50 departments launched internal investigations after being presented with our findings, in some cases saying they would examine officers’ past conduct to see if their online activity mirrored their policing in real life. And some departments have taken action, with at least one officer being fired for violating department policies.

YouTube says it’ll have no more videos from Nazis, Sandy Hook truthers, Holocaust deniers, and white supremacists » Nieman Journalism Lab
This set of changes seems to echo Facebook’s declaration earlier this year that it would ban “praise, support and representation of white nationalism and white separatism on Facebook and Instagram…It’s clear that these concepts are deeply linked to organized hate groups and have no place on our services.” That was a move that went beyond the traditional tech-company stance that a piece of content had to more directly threaten violence or otherwise break a specific policy to be removed. Facebook was saying for the first time that white nationalist content qualified for removal on its own, even without specific threats. Google, with today’s announcement, seems to be doing much the same.

Google’s LGBTQ employees are furious about YouTube’s policy disasters
Within Google, employees who spoke to The Verge say they feel frustration, anger, and exhaustion over what they see as a recurring problem, especially for the LGBTQ community. The Verge talked to four Google employees, most of whom requested anonymity in order to speak freely and without fear of retaliation. “Internal outreach to executives has not been effective in years. They ignore us completely unless there is extreme unrest,” says one employee. “We can’t trust them anymore to listen in good faith.”

Googlers have consistently said they’re afraid to speak up or be too loud about issues that matter to them. Wired has previously reported on outspoken diversity advocates being targeted by their own co-workers. Screenshots including personal information and internal discussions have been leaked to many far-right sites.

“When these doxxings were brought up, Google said they were not responsible,” a source tells The Verge. Although the company eventually updated its policies, the source says that Google employees ordered separate phones and removed as much personal information as they could from internal directories. Further sowing distrust, Google walkout organizers say they faced retaliation for their activism; today, walkout organizer Claire Stapleton announced that she’s left the company for that reason. One employee describes the company culture as a place where advocates fear retaliation from their company, bad faith weaponization of HR, and more doxxing.

“It’s not safe for us,” one employee says. As a result, many employees have limited their engagement on these topics out of fear. “We need to look out for our jobs, our personal safety, and our families.”

Was ist Hate Speech? | bpb
Hate Speech ist damit ein Oberbegriff für das Phänomen der gruppenbezogenen Menschenfeindlichkeit oder Volksverhetzung

Sie unterscheiden nicht zwischen
-- Abwertung, Trollen und Hass/Aufruf
-- diskursiver Menschenfeindlichkeit und haßerfüllter
-- Das Grundrecht der Meinungsfreiheit wird nicht uneingeschränkt gewährt. Es findet seine Grenzen, sobald die Menschenwürde angegriffen wird. Die unter dem Begriff Hate Speech zusammengefassten Meinungsäußerungen können durchaus Straftatbestände erfüllen. Sämtliche Straftatbestände gelten auch für Kinder und Jugendliche ab 14 Jahren:

Volksverhetzung § 130 StGB,
Beleidigung § 185 StGB,
Verleumdung § 187 StGB,
Nötigung § 240 StGB,
Bedrohung § 241 StGB,
Öffentliche Aufforderung zu Straftaten, § 111 StGB

Wenn Menschen abgewertet, angegriffen oder wenn gegen sie zu Hass oder Gewalt aufgerufen wird, spricht man von Hate Speech. (??)

Oft sind es rassistische, antisemitische oder sexistische Kommentare, die bestimmte Menschen oder Gruppen als Zielscheibe haben. Hate Speech ist damit ein Oberbegriff für das Phänomen der gruppenbezogenen Menschenfeindlichkeit oder Volksverhetzung im Internet und Social-Media-Räumen.
