Potentially defamatory statements[edit]

If you're going to include statements that are potentially defamatory, you need to include better citations that show that they are true. Oliver Smith on Reddit is not such a source. Bongolian (talk) 15:44, 17 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi, I don't think you read the source provided. It provides a screenshot from a website host showing Kirkegaard's website was suspended for ToS violation, specifically for uploading the terrorist manifesto after a complaint was sent on May 17 2022:

A website you are hosting has uploaded a terrorist manifesto and is inciting violence

The manifesto is by the recent murderer in Buffalo, US who killed ten people.

It has been uploaded here:

I am sending this email as a complaint and think it should be removed ASAP.

The manifesto outlines his killings and what he carried out.



We received your abuse report and are taking action according to our ToS.

/ Abuse Department Denmark A/S Højvangen 4 8660 Skanderborg Denmark

The website was suspended then taken offline (webpage capture) on 18- 20 May but returned when the manifesto was deleted.

There is nothing potentially defamatory about any of this. It's all documented and a webpage capture confirms the website was taken offline supporting the email response from the website host for ToS violation. Brain Galaxy (talk) 17:15, 17 June 2022 (UTC)

I don't think you should take Smith's word for it. Inciting violence is legalese for someone's words that had a direct link to causing a violent act. Uploading a murder's manifesto is not inciting violence unless it can be directly linked to causing further violence. The Washington Post, for example, has had the Unabomber Manifesto on its website since 1997. Feel free to revise what you had added accordingly. Bongolian (talk) 17:36, 17 June 2022 (UTC)
It appears the web host deleted it for "abuse" specifically "terrorist propaganda". Denmark has no webform or section on their site listing ToS violations. The DK registrar (registry of .dk domain names), however does: "If you discover an illegal action on a dk domain name that has a security or public interest, please contact us to file a complaint. The issue could be sexual abuse of children or terrorist propaganda." The upload of the terrorist manifesto can understandably be interpreted as "terrorist propaganda" and inciting violence or terrorism. Inciting means stirring up or encouraging. The webhost seemed to have considered the manifesto upload to be doing this so removed it under their ToS. Brain Galaxy (talk) 18:30, 17 June 2022 (UTC)
I don't have any interest in staying around on this account. I joined to criticise CBH's edits and they were reverted. Job done. I only added the Kirkegaard stuff after I made some edits on the Michael Woodley article. Woodley was suspended from VUB pending an investigation for being cited in the terrorist manifesto.

OK, thank you for pointing out the issues about CBH. You're welcome to stay. Bongolian (talk) 18:47, 17 June 2022 (UTC)
