Daily Stormer binned by yet another registrar, due to business risks


"So let's say a hosting provider said it would not host far left sites, or Muslim sites, or gay marriage sites because of their ethics - would that be okay too?"

Well. no, because sexual orientation and religious affiliation are both protected characteristics, and to discriminate based on them is illegal.

Being an asshole is not a protected characteristic, as a business owner i am totally within my legal rights to not do business with assholes, up until being an asshole becomes a protected characteristic, whereupon i am no longer allowed to base my decisions to do business with people upon whether or not they are an asshole.
