I was told when I was communicating with the EFF that they'd likely do a write up over the events taking place, and am happy to see this come to light finally. This is how it all began: https://twitter.com/IncogNetLLC/status/1685359845505957888

For those unaware, I own a small ISP that focuses on speech and privacy. Hurricane Electric is a major transit provider where a customer of ours, downstream of us, had their IPs that were announced by us blackholed and dropped by Hurricane Electric. At the time, their IP announcement was a singlehomed connection to HE only so it essentially meant that they censored and blocked access to this legal content.

This is why platforms and networks like I2P and Tor are so incredibly important, but also why it's important we support organizations like the EFF who fight for our clearnet rights.

Even worse, technically, the 'border' extends 100 miles inland within the United States. Your rights are extremely limited in these areas: https://www.aclu.org/know-your-rights/border-zone

If you've ever lived in, visited or traveled through some areas of the American south, you may be surprised to find border checkpoints 80 miles north of the US/MX border, for example. Borders aren't just land borders, either, as it also includes sea/lake borders.

Today I learned that Ramble was linked to on Vanilla I2P.

I didn't realize that it occurred on the June 30th release and that this wasn't actually "new" news (2mo~) until about fifteen minutes ago.

Either way, glad to see that the site is directly accessible from both consoles!
