Stripe Freezes Gab’s Account for NSFW Content, Shining a Light on a Problematic Policy – Gizmodo

Gizmodo is reporting that the payment processor Stripe has frozen the account for the  pro-first amendment social media platform Gab.Ai.  

Gizmodo – Social network Gab, a haven for toxic alt-right personalities banned from more mainstream platforms, has had its Stripe account frozen due to adult content on the platform. But even if you cheer Gab’s problems, Stripe is no hero.

Stripe, according to Gab, told the social network that it must modify its terms of service “to indicate that adult or illegal content cannot be streamed through GabTV or otherwise distributed through the Gab service” and to put in place “reasonable controls to ensure that no adult or illegal content is being streamed through GabTV or otherwise available on the Gab service.” Gab claims that the service doesn’t allow illegal content on its site and that all adult content is marked NSFW.

“We’ve had this content and a NSFW setting for two years with no issues from them until now,” Gab wrote in a tweet on Wednesday.



It’s unsurprising that Stripe would suspend Gab’s account due to NSFW content given its terms of service prohibits businesses related to adult content and services, citing “pornography and other obscene materials (including literature, imagery and other media); sites offering any sexually-related services such as prostitution, escorts, pay-per-view, adult live chat features” as examples of banned products and services from its systems. The company also states on its website that this list is “representative, but not exhaustive,” meaning there may be other forms of adult content that it doesn’t permit that have not been explicitly noted.

“No one, to our knowledge, is specifically paying to unlock any adult content on Gab via Stripe, which is what their terms of service prohibit,” Gab’s spokesperson said. “Adult content can be freely posted by anyone so long as they are abiding by our NSFW content guidelines. We are going to attempt to communicate with Stripe to get more clarity on their request, because it seems they want us to ban any and all adult content on the site at the moment.

The spokesperson added: “It’s interesting how we’ve never had any issues with either of these payment processors for over two years now, but all of a sudden when Gab.com is the only platform on the internet to host Alex Jones and Infowars, we become the target.”
