Re: Freedom of speech: Can it survive?
MrPwnzerz: Please go to Wikipedia and look up "fighting words." And additionally, you can walk up to a police officer and say that to him. He can't do shit to you except to check you out to see why you're being so hostile, which is completely legal.
flareofdragon: NL is not the United States. It's a private web forum that withholds the right to do what we please. That's our freedom of speech. If I go into a gay bar and say things constantly like, "God hates fags!" they can kick me out. Why? Because it is a private establishment. However, they wouldn't stop me from saying "God hates fags!" at a radical conservative convention.
I can walk around New York City and say "NARUTO SUX COCK!" all day if I wanted to do so. I can be as disrespectful as I want so long as it does not break the "Fighting Words" piece placed by the Supreme Court.
