Warrant Canary covering the Month of June, 2021
This is the second Warrant Canary for 1776 Solutions, LLC, Lolcow LLC, and
Mad at the Internet, LLC.
An explanation for what a Warrant Canary is can be found on the EFF:

The Kiwi Farms has received three letters from Russia's ROSKOMNADZOR further
insisting the deletion of memes depicting Hitler dressed as Santa.
Flokinet asked us to move the <kiwifarms.is> domain to another registrar.
<kiwifarms.nl> was moved to a Russian registrar.
<kiwifarms.tw> was moved to a Chinese registrar, the same 8kun uses.
<kiwifarms.hk> was moved to a Hong Kong registrar, the same 2ch uses.
The Kiwi Farms was targeted by a denial of service attack utilizing bandwidth
saturation, TCP packets designed to stress the router, and service-level
attacks targeting specific pages. We are currently mitigating it through a
combination of protections.
Sister services to the forum (Matrix, Fediverse, etc) are most effected as
their networks are more interactive and harder to secure.
Long-term solutions to this issue involve:
1. Purchasing a bigger upstream link and new hardware.
2. Setting up a second device in a second datacenter in Asia for redundancy.
These are not inexpensive options but they will be needed.
Personal aside:
Please stop trying to censor the Internet. You are begging for a future where
all online communication in the United States is regulated by a handful of
megacorporations with all meaningful decisions taking place behind closed doors
and having no appeals process.
"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary
Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." - Benjamin Franklin
We will lose everything if we continue down this path. Our world is scary,
and with machine learning we are fast approaching an environment where all
online consumption is expediently monitored and judged by unthinking, unfeeling
machines designed for the sole purpose of generating assholes like Jeff Bezos
an unfathomable amount of money.
If you believe that shutting down legal websites allowing people to say what
they want is a way to safeguard against new censorship ("sites like this
are why we can't have nice things"), you are falling prey to a contradictory
logic where the only way to avoid censorship is to impose censorship on self.
If you're not being censored because you don't say censored things, then is a
problem? Yes! This is how people behaved in East Germany and under Stalin.
People were even afraid to think bad thoughts, on the off chance that those
thoughts might manifest into criminal speech.
The Supreme Court will likely uphold the first amendment for decades to come,
which is why the only way for the System to impose censorship right now is to
consolidate power in private industries that work nice with the government
(look at how all these same companies have ongoing government contracts).
In doing so, they can restrict or promote certain information to influence
people and make regulatory changes which enforce their power more likely to
happen.
This is a trap. Don't step in it.
