Don't believe me? Watch what happens to NL if we ban people if they say that Naruto is bad. We'd be left with only people who like it here. Now let us pretend that NL is actually a country. We execute people for speaking ill of Naruto. We do not allow outside commentry on Naruto (if it is of the opinion that the show is bad). Public opinion will always be that Naruto is wonderful.
Are you offended if I decide to call all women bitches? Too bad. That's my personal opinion. To penalize me for saying that is to control my thoughts. Get it?
Hence why I am against ANY form of speech control.
This is Naruto Lounge. Emphasis on Naruto. Narutolounge does not care about outright "I HATE NARUTO!!!', if someone were to post that 4 times rapidly, why would people not recieve a ban? Nobody here cares if anyone hates Naruto, but if they say it like that, of course they are going to get banned.
Ok, let me put it this way. If someone here challanges your decision on modding someone, and does it insultingly, what the hell would you want? In fact, you modded me for insulting someone. Where was your "FREE THOUGHT" then? This is at your "women are bitches" example.
There is an abuse to free speech, its called being disrespectful. Having free speech does not mean saying everything on your mind. It means you can state your opinion if you can show that you understand it. Get it?
