NEW YORK TIMES - Jan 21 - Parler, the social network popular with Trump supporters, is trickling back to life after went offline since Amazon booted it from its computer servers for not consistently removing violent posts. Parler now has entered into business with DDoS-Guard, a Russian firm that routes internet traffic and protects websites from cyberattacks. With its help, visitors to Parler.com now find a basic webpage with a promise from Parler's chief executive, John Matze, that "our return is inevitable." But the use of a Russian company is worrying some researchers who study the internet and Russia. If Parler routes its web traffic through DDoS-Guard when its full website returns, Russian law could enable the Russian government to surveil Parler's users.
