10. Due process

 

24 hours is not enough for them to clean it up anyway. They couldn't do it even in 24 days.

Parler is going to be gone from the app store and google play by the middle of next week. If they tell people to download the app directly, apple's OS may defeat its functionality. Google cannot do that because Android has dozens of flavors - but -- any app that doesn't go through google's stringent scrutiny becomes a backdoor to hacking and malware.

7. Perfect Site For Christian Right

Recently Parler revised its terms of service to allow things that Twitter already allows, including pornography. As you might expect, Parler is now a bastion of hate speech and ads for hardcore pornography websites.Dec 2, 2020

And employs Big Foot and the Tan Suit on the sly.

Stop 'em, BOYS! STOMP 'EM, NOW!
