This was first reported in Nov of 2019, so it may not be news to some, but should be concerning for all.

Private equity firm Ethos Capital bought the “.org,” Internet domain which is home to more than 10 million nonprofits, for $1.135 billion.

I will not get into the back story on how this opportunity has come about, but will say that if this is allowed to be implemented, all other Internet domains could quickly follow suit. The managing body for Internet operations is the Internet Society.  Their wish is to convert the .org domain from a nonprofit status to a forprofit status.  Agreement documents have already been signed with Ethos Capital, however the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) which is the global nonprofit that would make the action has yet to decide it it will abide by this decision.

Why is this important, most nonprofits reside on the .org domain, theindependentman.org is an example.  A cooperative effort from some major nonprofits is discussing the purchase of the domain instead of allowing Ethos Capital to continue ownership.

The downside is that if Ethos is allowed to push management and operations policies for .org, then the wholesale price cap on .org domain names will be removed and annual fees will go up.  Another issue is the quality of service (downtime) applied to .org instead of .net, .gov, etc, also attaching other top tier revenue sources to .org (mandatory adds, add on services, etc.)  Censorship is another huge concerns that impacts the advocacy role of every .org domain site, once again theindependentman.org is an example of a site that is already swimming against the stream of public opinion.

I chose .org on purpose, with no aim to make money and having more freedom in how to run the site. Information should always be free, especially when it is to free another man. We know censorship is the only weapon that the feminist have left for men like us. They have already lost access to our resources, attention and time. Remember, feminist/females are just useful idiots. This is a profitable exploitation by government and corporations.

Check Uly.  If ICANN implements these changes, there will be a massive change to the policies and procedures governing how all Internet domains operate.  Once social justice organizations start applying their influence on Ethos Capital, or other for profit owners, chaos will ensue and the use of the Internet will become very dangerous for men.

Bad Bugha. 👎

Thanks for the heads up gregbo. I already find that I am censoring myself on here. I write big long replies and then end up deleting they replies because I wonder if they are appropriate or are seen later on and used against me in some 1984 type paradigm.

This really caught my eye ulynecro. Reminded me of my first relationshit. One day, after we returned home from wondering about, holding hands and in the early days of the relationshit, I was told by the cunt...

"Why is that while we were out, everybody but you was looking at me?" WTF, where did that come from? What a massive shit test that was! I was unaware of the shit test then and just couldn't make it out. I was scrutunised in that relationshit fro looking at other women as she watched me like a hawk. One day the shaming came in the form of a comparison between "me looking at other women" and "boy in a sweet shop"

Really messed up my head I can tell you. I became self conscious about where I was looking. What a mind job she did on me.

Another gem was when I decided to attend a Kung Fu seminar one Saturday. The Thunder Face was shocking. One day, I decided to do something besides attending to her and thunder face happened. She lurched in with heed forward and shoulders hunched and dropped some beer on my lap. But it was delivered with such disdain that a fight followed because she was so fucking moody. Fuck me, what a cunt.

Back to the topic. Wasn't there something about Net Neutrality a few years back? Is this part of the same agenda?

ps (apologies for dropping in that reply to The Feminist Woeman Poster) It's like they say about gas...better out than in.

Check ID.  A point for everyone to remember is that one you post, it remains posted forever.  Great reminder to us all regarding the need to use reason when posting at all times.

It only takes on phone call or email, as many members know from first hand experience.

Great catch ID.  You are correct that the opportunity to censor Internet users is available in both cases.  Net Neutrality by the Internet Service Providers that provide the Internet Backbone (cable, network interface equipment) can be used to restrict access, and the Internet domain owers who determine the who, what, where, when, why, and how much regarding each specific top level domain.  .com, .org, .net are going to start squeezing as much as they can out of as many people.   

There are potentially 100's of more to be added to the mix.  .social, .me, .biz, etc are currently available through sites like go daddy.  All open to abuse groups and individuals with limited social and governmental connections.

Ergo: shit on white men, mgtow, and every one male-only place as much as you want, we don't care.

But if you see or FEEL you see any racist, homophobic, transphobic, islamophobic, anti-semite, pro-white (it's okay to be white) etc. message, click a button and we're here to protect your fragile mental state! We promise you we will take those sites down immediately!

1984 or Brave New World? Or a mix?

Either, as well as any historical propaganda effort.  

Herman and Chomsky from a related book in the late 80's, "Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media" that is applicable as well.

Indeed. The greatest thing ever if it fits their agenda, nazi propaganda if they don't like it.

I had a conversation a short while ago about how history is written by the victors, so many historical insights lost. You always read/hear about one side of the story: "we're good, they're bad, and that's the end of that."

I'll have to look that book up!

Absolutely Nerevar.  The only thing worse is once the victors consolidate power, it the deliberate and systematic rewriting and erasing of history.    As you pointed out, initially the conversation has elements of good and bad behavior, however the longer the victors stay in power and need justification to remain so, the greater the efforts to eradicate the positive social achievements of the loser / minority sector and over emphasize the less positive elements.

That's what I also wanted to mention. Every conquest was written by the victor, and everything written by the defeated one(s) got destroyed and was lost to the eons, to never be discovered or recovered every again.

We see this now in our own media, where things are rewritten like in 1984 (we are not at war with X, we were never at war with X, we are, and always were, at war with Y), but much more subtle, for instance, and tell me if I'm wrong: the writing of black people into white history and stating it as a fact (because it's in the movie, thus it must be true, because "based on true stories)", blackwashing in tv series and movies (a character in The Witcher who is white both in the books and in the game is now black. Hell, they wanted/chose a black girl for the roles of Hermione Granger, and Annie the ginger girl, in musical adaptations).

Don't get me wrong, I don't hate or even dislike black people as a whole, but on ze interwebz I'm automatically a racist when I point stuff like that out.

We also saw/see that happening live when those ISIS assholes tore down centuries-old buildings and statues, destroyed them and set other priceless stuff on fire. And soon it will be forgotten, either because nobody cares, or the information on websites that specify about such subjects will be quietly taken down. And another civilization is lost to our memory.

Absolutely spot on!  The pendulum has gone so far into the social justice realm, with the aid of mass media, that any traditional history is indeed questioned and placed within the social context of the modern era.  This imbalance only exacerbats the situation as you've stated, anyone trying to take a stand to correct the false claims and disinformation is immediately branded with the harshest of terms.  And once branded, the social stigma is never removed and only become worse over time.

Civil conversation and debate are dead, everything is viewed with an adversarial lens, the ultimate goal being the eradication of the messenger and the message.  Move that Doomsday Clock closer to midnight!

Crucial to my journey was reading 1984. I'm not a big reader (bullied into it by father) but I got through this in under a week. It wasn't a novel to help me get off to sleep it was captivating hard hitting reality check clarifying my need for caution. The agents are everywhere, even if they don't know it, because they could be blissfully unaware of their lack of integrity towards others' privacy.

The book was old too, penguin, and it will probably be chucked out and damaged never to be read again because it doesn't contain nice pictures on the cover. I returned it to the man that initiated my journey from acceptance mode to challenge mode.

The same man that lent me the book was still at a Plenty Of Filth stage thinking that he could beat the system. Funny how he red pilled me to begin with but when I "red pill questioned" him about POF he got upset and told me to leave his pad. I've bumped into him since and he thanked me for something I said that made him change direction for the better, so he said. He also mentioned something about "owing me one" and I just brushed it off.  That was something I haven't heard that often. I mean, yeah, I've heard people so "I owe you one." when you do something for a them in 2 seconds that they didn't have a clue how to do but I think it's a first to be "owed one" for just asking challenging questions.

peace.

KUDOS ID in helping yourself, your mentor and everyone who will be reading your post.

I fortunately had active encouragement from my parents and was allowed to read throughout life.  Yep, I am a man of privilege in this respect and am so very thankful.  I have been involved in literacy efforts for both children and adults.  I would highly recommend this to all, no matter your ability or experience, as we know, there is always someone worse off that could use assistance.  Always.

That's another example of male behavior.  Takng the time to reach back and help someone out.  As you said ID, you never know how efforts might be repaid.
