The name "Stormfront" was chosen for its connotations of a political or military front (such as the German Nazi stormtroopers, the Sturmabteilung or SA) and an analogy with weather fronts that invokes the idea of a tumultuous storm ending in cleansing.
The site received considerable attention in the United States, such as in Hate.com, a 2000 CBS/HBO documentary television special which focused on the perceived threat of white nationalist and white supremacist organizations on the Internet.
Do you think my Tinder bio explains that I spend my free time watching Japanese pro wrestling or that I haven't listened to any music made after 1997? For these folk, I don't imagine suitors like Cantwell do much to instill confidence.
That unease can largely be chalked up to the jarring contrast between the Cantwell of Ok Cupid and the Cantwell of Vice's documentary.
It's about a 36-year-old fella named Chris Cantwell, who let prospective partners visiting his Ok Cupid profile know he's "interested in getting married and having children." The would-be family man is also a bona fide TV star after being featured in a Vice News documentary earlier this month.

A profile belonging to white nationalist leader Christopher Cantwell, most recently featured in a Vice News documentary about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend, was discovered on the dating site.
