Parler's Internet host has its Internet addresses revoked

Parler, the beleaguered social network advertised as a “free speech” alternative to Facebook and Twitter, has had a tough month. Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their stores, and Amazon blocked the platform from using its hosting services. Parler has since found a home in DDoS-Guard, a Russian digital infrastructure company. But now it appears DDoS-Guard is about to be relieved of more than two-thirds of the Internet address space the company leases to clients — including the Internet addresses currently occupied by Parler.

The pending disruption for DDoS-Guard and Parler comes compliments of Ron Guilmette, a researcher who has made it something of a personal mission to de-platform conspiracy theorist and far-right groups.

It appears the Russian firm DDoS-Guard hosting Parler does not directly own the Internet addresses it is assigning. They are instead assigned to two corporations, one based in Belize and one based in Scotland. The entity which assigns Internet addresses in Latin America and the Caribbean (LACNIC) requires a physical presence in the region. The Belize company is a shell with no physical presence in Belize. LACNIC is terminating these addresses, including those assigned to Parler.

1. Maybe these idiots that ran to Parler after they got kicked off of everything else, could have...

learned their lesson, that hate is not wanted on any platforms. Idiots. Thank god that normality has arrived, that hate speech isn't allowed anywhere, and the scumbags that have such a loud and sicking presence will be taken down anywhere they go. We all love freedom of speech and such, but their speech isn't free speech, it's overthrowing the government speech (obviously) type of crap. Un-american and traitorous the rest of us who do stand up for the word of law and justice. Despite numbers that clearly showed Mr. Biden the clear winner, they still tried filing garbage lawsuits right and left, hemmed and hawed in giving Mr. Biden the initial funds for starting up his new administration, and other briefings that one should get, as a newcomer to the Executive branch of government.

In the end, they tried to stop a lawful assemble of Congress persons and the VP, in confirming Biden's electoral victory. They threatened to hang representatives of Congress. They killed people. They hurt our police officers, those who serve on the front lines to maintain law and order. No peace and / or no rest until everyone of these thugs are caught, charged, and if convicted, dealt w/ the proper punishment. Not all of them should go to prison, but those on the outskirts, actually enabled those on the inside too. They enabled all of these criminal acts to occur. If anything, if no prison, have a Biden Peace Corp., and sentence them to a year or so of service, and serving this Country as it should be served, not overthrown. Make them have an appreciation for the word of law, respect for justice, and such.

15. There is an internet protocol for using carrier pigeons to carry data!

Network Working Group D. Waitzman
Request for Comments: 1149 BBN STC
1 April 1990


A Standard for the Transmission of IP Datagrams on Avian Carriers

Status of this Memo

This memo describes an experimental method for the encapsulation of
IP datagrams in avian carriers. This specification is primarily
useful in Metropolitan Area Networks. This is an experimental, not
recommended standard. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Overview and Rational

Avian carriers can provide high delay, low throughput, and low
altitude service. The connection topology is limited to a single
point-to-point path for each carrier, used with standard carriers,
but many carriers can be used without significant interference with
each other, outside of early spring. This is because of the 3D ether
space available to the carriers, in contrast to the 1D ether used by
IEEE802.3. The carriers have an intrinsic collision avoidance
system, which increases availability. Unlike some network
technologies, such as packet radio, communication is not limited to
line-of-sight distance. Connection oriented service is available in
some cities, usually based upon a central hub topology.

Frame Format

The IP datagram is printed, on a small scroll of paper, in
hexadecimal, with each octet separated by whitestuff and blackstuff.
The scroll of paper is wrapped around one leg of the avian carrier.
A band of duct tape is used to secure the datagram's edges. The
bandwidth is limited to the leg length. The MTU is variable, and
paradoxically, generally increases with increased carrier age. A
typical MTU is 256 milligrams. Some datagram padding may be needed.

Upon receipt, the duct tape is removed and the paper copy of the
datagram is optically scanned into a electronically transmittable
form.

And it has been tested:

Pigeon-powered Internet takes flight

One of the Internet's most obscure technologies has come to life: transmitting network information by carrier pigeon.
Stephen Shankland headshot

One of the Internet's most obscure technologies came to life last weekend: transmitting network information by carrier pigeon.

In 1990, David Waitzman wrote RFC 1149, a tongue-in-cheek standard for using pigeons to transfer information using the Internet Protocol (IP). On Saturday, a group of Linux enthusiasts in Bergen, Norway, succeeded in exchanging some data using the Carrier Pigeon Internet Protocol (CPIP).

The group transmitted a "ping" command, among the most basic operations of the Internet, in which one computer sends a signal to another, which in turn signals that it is attached to the network. In the experiment, packets of network data were printed on paper then attached to pigeons' legs. Upon their arrival at the destination, the data was transferred to the computer using optical character recognition software.

The Bergen Linux Users Group had some assistance from the Vesta Brevdueforening carrier pigeon club and Alan Cox, a programmer at Linux leader Red Hat and top deputy of Linux founder Linus Torvalds.

The pigeon protocol didn't mean the fastest of networks, though. Taking an hour and 42 minutes to transfer a 64-byte packet of information makes the pigeon network about 5 trillion times slower than today's cutting-edge 40 gigabit-per-second optical fiber networks.

Somewhere on the internet there are "blog" entries with pictures of the test. (Blog is in quotes because I don't think blogs were a thing back in 2002.

I think browsers would time out waiting for a page to load.

14. The real question here is how many bogus sites can Russia put them on.

And how long will it take for DHS to shut down the Russians.

IMO this is primary evidence that Russia was directly involved in generating the events of Jan 6th, and the GOP members and their patrons who collaborated should be considered traitors and agents of a foreign power.

20. Just a few days ago Parker.com was registered with Epik.

In other words, Epik was the domain name registrar.

However, it looks like Epik has to use another company to assign the domain to an IP address?

Seriously, any of these social networking companies whose business model is based on misinformation and hate need to have their asses handed to them by congress. This isn’t free speech on these platforms and they can and should be regulated. The only reason Twitter and FB fell in line a couple weeks ago is that Democrats are now chairing the committees who will regulate them.
