Washington Post: Fallout begins for far-right trolls who trusted Epik to keep their identities secret. “In the real world, Joshua Alayon worked as a real estate agent in Pompano Beach, Fla., where he used the handle ‘SouthFloridasFavoriteRealtor’ to urge buyers on Facebook to move to ‘the most beautiful State.’ But online, data revealed by the massive hack of Epik, an Internet-services company popular with the far right, signaled a darker side. Alayon’s name and personal details were found on invoices suggesting he had once paid for websites with names such as racisminc.com, whitesencyclopedia.com, christiansagainstisrael.com and theholocaustisfake.com.”
