In case you haven't heard, the federal District Court for the Northern District of California just ruled in In Re DMCA Subpoena to Reddit. And part of it includes that First Amendment protections also apply to non-US residents.

So sort of following in Gab's recent steps today, I decided to add a new International User Policy to the sidebar, which reads:

Fucking California Courts must have gottin DNC relatives into the courts. Even a child knows the bill of rights are intended for US Citizens not visitors or trespassers. Fucking judges nowadays on the west coast are a bunch of idiots in robes. Must have gone to ACME legal school for their edumakashun. Not a lick of true legal knowledge if you look at their decisions, they just pushing their opinions and not judging according to US law. They all should be disbarred who decided this was a legal decision. Fuckers should all have to live in Mexico for a few years to see how great their laws work or make them live in east LA instead. Or detroit would work or downtown LA or SF. These guys are just doing this shit so they can get laid is likely, horny old ugly fucks.
