LambdaConf is a functional programming conference. In March 2016, the organizers of the conference announced that they would include neo-reactionary Curtis Yarvin on the program despite widespread protest.

Statement of opposition to Yarvin Edit

In April 2016, a number of people in the functional programming community organized a public statement decrying the conference organizers' decision to include Yarvin. The original statement had 99 signers, which has since grown to 304 (as of April 11, 2016.)

SJW list Edit

Vox Day incited the creation of a wiki to organize personal information about signers of the statement and other perceived "social justice warriors." (archive.is link to blog post) (archive.is link to wiki). The probable purposes are proxy recruitment and doxxing.

Alchemy Communications Edit

In response to a complaint to the ISP for sjwlist.com, Alchemy Communications, an employee of Alchemy posted the complaint, including the complainant's full name, to the 8chan web site. Day proceeded to (archive.is link to blog post) repost it on his blog. Alchemy's upstream provider is PNAP, also doing business as InterNAP.(whois information from arin.net)

Alchemy Communications advertises themselves as offering "SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type 2 Audited Internet Data Centers" (from their home page), and a confidentiality breach such as an employee reposting personally identifying information to 8chan (or any other public Web site) is likely a violation of policies they advertise themselves as complying with.

Alchemy's home page states that "DreamHost owns a large equity stake in Alchemy Communications."
