Airbnb said in a statement that if it discovered that someone was using the platform to do something "that would be antithetical to the Airbnb Community Commitment", it would "seek to take appropriate action including, as in this case, removing them from the platform".

The site rejected, then turned to the host provider to Google Domains, but its registration was soon annulled because it "violates our terms of service", explained to AFP a spokesman of Google. "In connection with this Roskomnadzor has addressed the Ru-Center domain name registrar with a request to consider stopping providing domain name services to this site in the shortest time possible", a statement from Roskomnadzor's press service on Thursday reads. "The Daily Stormer site was bragging on their bulletin boards about how Cloudflare was one of them and that is the opposite of everything we believe".

While some have been questioning why companies have only made a decision to draw the line at physical harm when it comes to people and sites that have been spewing hate online for years - especially as numerous same companies have publicized their actions in combatting ISIS and global extremism - the steps that are being taken now are still vital. Is it fair to expect them to take on this burden? But Charlottesville brought a new level of moral clarity-or at least moral outrage-to a long-simmering debate in Silicon Valley.

The white supremacist website helped organize the weekend rally in Charlottesville where a 32-year-old woman was killed and 19 people were injured when a man plowed a vehicle into a crowd protesting the white nationalist gathering. The company says it has since changed how it handles these complaints. The iPhone maker has disabled Apple Pay support for a number of sites selling goods from white supremacist groups. Discord, a voice-chat app for gamers that's become popular with white supremacists, cracked down on the far-right contingent of its user base after the Charlottesville rally. "We unequivocally condemn white supremacy, neonazism, or any other group, term, ideology that is based on these beliefs".

Anglin's site - dubbed the country's "top hate site" by the Southern Poverty Law Center - is known for launching "troll storms" against people the publisher views as enemies. But after just a few hours, that site was offline, too.

WhatsApp and other encrypted messaging services have come under attack.

In a refreshingly candid email to his employees and blog post, CloudFlare CEO Matthew Prince admitted that his decision was "arbitrary" and "dangerous", and departed from years of maintaining strict neutrality about the content of the sites his company protected. "But I do know that as we work it out it's critical we be clear, transparent, consistent and respectful of Due Process".

Heyer's mother, Susan Bro, told mourners packing the Paramount Theater on Wednesday to ask themselves, "What can I do to make a difference?"

"I woke up this morning in a bad mood and chose to kick them off the internet", Cloudflare founder and chief executive Matthew Prince wrote in an email to employees. "After today, make no mistake, it will be a little bit harder for us to argue against a government somewhere pressuring us into taking down a site they don't like".

It's been terribly sad watching the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, unfold over the weekend and into this week.The clashes left many injured, one person dead, and re-opened fiery discussions around free speech and the open nature of the web.
