"Epik CEO Rob Monster statement on 8chan," 5 Aug 2019

Epik has accepted domains that other registrars have kicked out, including Gab.com. The registrar’s CEO Rob Monster said that it did not solicit 8chan’s business and is evaluating whether to offer it DDoS mitigation. Here’s Monster’s full statement... "Freedom of speech and expression are fundamental rights in a free society. We enter into a slippery slope when we start to limit speech that makes us uncomfortable... Specific to any of the “Chan” sites, Epik did not solicit this business.
