8chan being shut down because their server supplied stopped doing business with them isn't an issue of free speech. You're really arguing that the 1st amendment means businesses can't refuse a customer, and that's just silly.

The comment you're responding to said nothing about "1st amendment". You're the one that brought up that narrow codification of the wider concept of Free Speech.

Do you think there are any parallels between the bakers who wouldn't make a wedding cake for a gay customer and the company who won't host 8Chan?
