Then when would they become one?



I dunno, when you need cloud storage to live. In the same way you need water, power, gas, and these days communication (ISP, etc). But hosting your files is not crucial to your survival I don't believe.


You don't need ISP to be able to live. Also CloudFlare is NOT hosting them. They were the CDN, content delivery network. They are the messenger which carries the message. They shouldn't be deciding whose message they want to carry. They are forgetting the "don't shoot the messenger" saying.


> They shouldn't be deciding whose message they want to carry

Being a messenger doesn't require being amoral.


> They shouldn't be deciding whose message they want to carry.

Why? There is no reason they should be forced to host content they find objectionable.
