The Poal.co warrant canary
As of Friday, May 4, 2018, We (Poal) have never received:
National Security Letter, of any type, for any purpose
Personal requests from any law enforcement agency worldwide or corporate entity for backdoors in any software and/or hardware projects to which we currently am an active contributor, nor are we aware of other contributors to these projects having received such a request
Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court orders of any type
Subpoenas and/or search warrants accompanied by a gag order pursuant to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act
This statement will continue to be updated manually.
The Poal.co Free Speech Canary
Poal.co declares itself to be a Neutral Public Forum and claims protection under Section 230 immunity
Poal.co declares it is open to the general public for use
Poal.co commits to not removing content unless it is illegal or any form of child sexualization.
Poal.co commits to not banning users unless they post illegal content or if they compromise the site functionality (Spam, DDoS, etc.)
Poal.co delegates moderation of speech on the site to the users themselves via the Owners and Moderators of individual subs
The Owners and Moderators of individual subs may restrict speech but only at the risk of that individual sub loosing Neutral Public Forum status and the Owners and Moderators of that individual sub loosing Section 230 immunity. Poal.co itself maintains Neutral Public Forum status and maintains Section 230 immunity because anyone can create a new sub and talk about anything they want.
The Only Addendum I would like to add is that if a sub owner is determined to be an abusive mod, I may transfer that sub to another user(Abusive mod is defined by actively censoring relevant discussions or information)
