It's important to remember that de-platforming on large social media works differently from de-platforming through domain registrars or webhosts. Most discussions on this topic ignore that fact.
Update: Oct. 27
I want to add - I will often link to provocative articles by people like Milo and others to rebut them or even point out the partial truths. Besides myself, a number of other bloggers and vlogger channels (some of them tend to be "conservative") do this; my own audience can tell which other commentators I watch a lot. Yet, a significant "combative" minority of the public thinks this practice is gratuitous and actually puts others in danger (possibly myself, family, others in oppressed groups) because most visitors will not understand the point of any argument I make, they will feel merely presenting him again validates him,. Yes, there is an Internet literacy issue here -- that drove many of the problems of Facebook. But many on the far Left, at least, and maybe some conservatives, think someone like me should take his turn subservient to others in the soup line and have to experience what everyone else experiences -- before being allowed a platform at all. This Marxist thinking is getting more common and is plain dangerous. I could say this might follow the line of Umair Haque's columns on Eudaimonia Medium. Or you could put a "conservative" spin on it and invoke Nassin Nicholas Taleb's "skin in the game". For someone like me, who doesn't compete very well on social groups or tribes, lowballing or outflanking them online is just irresistible.
