Additions to the shame list:
@OpenSea@dYdX@Microsoft (GitHub owner/policy maker)
All of these companies have gone beyond what sanctions law requires. They didn't just obey an unjust order, they went out of their way to do additional injustice.
We can add @Discord to the shame list too since apparently they decided to go *far* above and beyond and ban the community run/operated discord server. God forbid people even *discuss* the thing that was unjustly sanctioned...
Latest addition to the shame list: Flashbots
As with all of the above, they are going above and beyond sanction requirements. Flashbots is attempting to stop people *outside of the US* from interacting with a piece of software the US has sanctioned.
Another one for the shame list: @Aavegithub.com/aave/interface…
They aren't just enforcing an unjust regulation, they are going beyond what is required of them.
"A driving force towards autocracy is preemptive compliance towards imagined expectations."
Another one down, this time they are blocking TORN which is *NOT* on the sanction list.
It pains me greatly to add @Uniswap Labs 🦄 to this list. They have one UI available and that UI is censoring Tornado users. Uniswap has historically been a beacon of hope in the darkness of censorship, but at the moment users don't have a functionl way to use the software uncensored.
While I have been a bit hesitant to add exchanges to the shame list out of fear of the list being too long, this feels sufficiently extraordinary to be worth adding, especially since people seem to think so highly of @SBF and @FTXtwitter.com/WuBlockchain/s…
Recently, FTX froze a user account who sent coins to @Aztec 's zkmoney. According to FTX, Aztec Connect - Aztec network / zk money has been identified as a mixing service, which is a high-risk activity prohibited by FTX.
