Me personally, I find this massive banning wave utterly ridiculous. It's like a massive contest where participants tries to prove who can be worst, all while idiots are cheering. One of the primary goals with 99Stack Cloud was in fact free speech, and we take this matter very seriously.
We realized early on the importance of decentralization and to not put all the eggs in the same basket. With that said, the infrastructure required to be completely safe from internet censorship is very expensive. We therefore choose a different approach, which is decentralization, on a worldwide scale.
So what does it mean in reality? can we be shutdown? well yes, but only partially and not for very long. This site is served from 5 different data centers spread over 3 different continents. We also got our own backup facilities saving cold backups of everything every hour.
We're available in 56 individual datacenters spread over 4 continents at the moment, all operated by different entities with varying political views. And more are scheduled to be added later this year.
