I've see quite a few people talk about how they were sensored, banned, suspended because they said or did something. Then they talk about how their freedom of speach was violated somehow. First I would like to say one thing, a website is someone's property. Which means they pay for it. Even when you get a web hosting account (free or paid for), there is someone who owns the server and spends money to keep it running. So think if it as your home. If you own a house and you have people come by for a gathering, you are well within your rights to tell a person to leave for any reason. That includes if they say something you don't like. It becomes your choice on where to draw the line and what your tolerence level is. A web forum is a gathering, usually free of charge, that someone is hosting on their server or web hosting account. You are a guest, as such, guests need to follow house rules. On MT it is pretty much spelled out. But in actuallity, there is no law stating they have to follow their own rules (not doing so would be bad for biz). The bottom line is the internet is covered by the 1st amendment in the U.S. But if you wish to have the freedom to say anything you wish (without breaking any laws), then the only way to do so is to get your own server or find someone who will let you use their server with no rules attached. Even then, they can change their mind because they found out you like apples more than oranges. Boittom line, get over the free speach thing will ya.:whip: You're in someones home here.:ultracool You may now display your personal knowledge and opinions of how freedom of speach relates to the internet. Please, you can also completely disagree with me and even call me names, just don't break house rules. P.S. Any lawyers here? I would love to hear your personal understanding of the law on this subject. I especially like to know how far off the mark I was. Disclaimer: This is just a rant. The above is just an observation from reading many forums besides the current one. I am neither a lawyer nor an expert on the subject. Also, this is NOT directed at any individual.
