This is probably a good time to remind everyone that one of the consequences of Cloudflare dropping Moon’s hosting company was the sudden disappearance of the website for Action Zealandia … a neo-Nazi group based in New Zealand. Their website disappeared because Moon’s company 1776 Solutions Incwas selling them hosting services.

Which is why it really pains me that Mumsnet is providing a forum for its members to post information about fundraising and support for Moon. 

Make no mistake about Moon and what he really is. He has been providing literal neo-Nazis with an Internet platform on which to metastasise their toxic ideology. He is happy to make money from hosting toxic men that are united by their collective hate. 

If supporting Moon seems like a worthwhile outcome for your activism then, quite frankly, you’re failing to make make the world a better place. Nothing good or worthwhile can come from supporting a person who is willing to assist groups pf disgruntled men that want to put their boots on your faces.

I'm glad that at least we have a concession that we're not literal neo-Nazis metastasising a toxic ideology.

Ol' LoC is sounding practicially terf-adjacent there. Or at least he's palling up with us. Would be a dreadful shame if anyone heard what sites he was a member of.

And like Mr sealions says, the irony of being outraged by other people's hate, while being one of the most hateful people in a hate group... I really cannot see how TRA hate is any better than neo-Nazi hate. Certainly in overall impact it's far worse, just because of its prevalance and acceptance by institutions.

I guess people who view a group as subhuman can't even perceive hate towards that group. And there are far more people who view women as subhuman than any other group - it's practically the air we breathe, as the last few years have made clear to me. Most people don't make it quite so explicit, but it's so obviously there, or women wouldn't still be being subjected to this.

This is probably a good time to remind everyone that no charge relating to illegal activity on KF has ever successfully been brought against Moon.

This is probably a good time to remind everyone that the information posted on KF is archived from things subjects have published themselves on the public Internet, backed up with evidence.

This is probably a good time to remind everyone that KF has been victim to many illegal DDOS attacks by those who are seemingly desperate to remove these archives, which often document unsavoury and illegal behaviour - often against children and animals.

This is probably a good time to remind everyone that no-one has yet been successful in the downfall of KF, but if that time comes, Moon has a full archived of the forums, which he has stated he will release in order for someone else to take up and continue this documentation.

You know just putting

It is always unwise to censor ideas. In the open they can be challenged. Hidden, they grow in secret. Why should neo-Nazis not have a platform? They have the same rights to free speech as everyone else and if we can see them we can fight them.

Welcome to Mumsnet. A forum where the users advocate for neo-Nazis to be provided with platforms to spread their messages of hate. 🤦‍♀️

We saw a lot of those disgruntled men attacking people at Posie's Standing for women event in New Zealand.

I wonder which website they used, or was it was it the national media, LGBTQ organisations and government that assisted that hoard of lunatics?

This is probably a good time to remind everyone that the people who are renowned for really, really hating free speech are LitErAllY fascists and the people who gave their lives fighting against the Nazis were anti-fascists.

This is probably a good time to remind everyone that, ironically, another regime that sent its people to die fighting the Nazis was also really, really against free speech. That was communist Russia.

This is probably a good time to remind everyone authoritarian regimes and individuals, people who want to control others and people with something to hide are really, really against free speech.

This is probably a good time to remind everyone that people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones:

Groups acting openly is always preferable. It's been the downfall of many an extremist group in the past, when people see them for what they are. (BNP springs to mind).

You, @landOFconfusion , on the other hand, are advocating for the #NoDebate crew. The Dalton's playbook crowd. Yeah, I'll take KF over you any day.

So I just googled this group Action Zealandia and lo and behold, they still have a website. So somebody else is now hosting them. No idea who and really don't care, but to summarize:

  • the group is legal
  • the group has a website
  • the website is legally hosted
  • NZ government and legal system have not banned them, shut them down or removed the website.


Conclusion: this group is exercising their democratic right to say what they want to say, even though you and I don't agree, like or condone what they say.

If you don't agree with them, file a lawsuit and get them shut down using the legal and democratic system. That is democracy.

So, LoC, are you now going after whoever hosts their site now? Get them banned from the internet as well?

Did you support and use and read Twitter pre Musk? That was a truly hate filled place these past few years. I bet you use several other hate filled places too, what are you doing about those? Please make a new thread and tell us about your awesomeness regarding your fight against those thumbs up

Oh....and awesome title by the way Bosky, Love it Grin

And sorry for derail. Was kinda using it to placemark instead of just saying the above. Won't happen again, as I find Im laughing too much nowadays at Lands and Merlins attempts. I'm pretty sure they are trying to use humour to keep us going. Laughter can be such a bonding moment 😎

Nothing about Mumsnet is “nazi adjacent”. This site has a strong and active mod team that steps in to delete offensive and harmful content.

Posting neo-Nazi materials here will result in users being banned. This is what differentiates sites like Mumsnet from dumpster fires like Kiwifarms.

That’s the thing with free speech, people are going to say things I don’t agree with - like TWAW, or neo-nazi stuff, or Trump was a great president. But while I disagree, people are perfectly entitled to say those things.

A don’t agree with a lot of what is said on KF (or Mumsnet) but they’re allowed to say it.
