    Free Speech Hosts? .. or at least one with a little backbone

    I'm big on free speech and I like to run my forums that way as well. I don't feel its my right, or job, to tell my members, you or Anybody what they can/can't believe in. I 1000% don't believe you should be silenced for discussing your thoughts. I have a bitter Karen out there that stalks my...

    Do CDN services spy on your users and sell their data to third parties?

    I see there are CDN services that offer free service / bandwidth. I wonder if their business plan is similar to AddThis which tracks what your members write and sell this data to other parties. Do CDN services spy on your users and sell their data to third parties?
