When troll hosts find that their efforts are being fruitfully resisted, they often grumble that their right to free speech is being infringed. Let us examine that claim.

While most people on the Internet are enthusiastic defenders of free speech, it is not an absolute right; there are realistic limitations. For example, you may not scream out "Fire!" in a crowded theatre, and you may not make jokes about bombs while waiting to board an airplane. We accept these limitations because we recognize that they serve a greater good.


Troll hosts want 100% control of your mind so you can become addicted and become a groomer, like the master Troll hosts

The ultimate response to the 'free speech' argument is this: while we may have the right to say more or less whatever we want, we do not have the right to say it wherever we want. You may feel strongly about the fact that your neighbor has not mowed his lawn for two months, but you do not have the right to berate him in his own living room.

Free your mind, go for a walk let the troll hosts die, they will need to start doing real jobs not lurking here trying to mess up your mind and souls

PS Grumpy is a good example of a troll host nickname

Actually, I believe that I would have the right to do so, but I also believe that he would have the right to order me out of his domain unless I learned to follow his rules while I was there.

It may well be, but I'm afraid you're well off target this time.

BTW Tourer69, are you American by any chance?

This posting has been hidden during moderation because it broke the House Rules in some way.

If the 10 new Commandments were posted here. The moderators would ban it. If Bin laden posted they would protect his right.
