CELEBRATE Freedom Of Speech Weekend Here


Normally open July 4th only---the one day a year when partisan politics, religion, etc. are acceptable topics on this Board (within reason). The forum is now closed.

CELEBRATE Freedom Of Speech Weekend Here

Postby gh » Tue Jul 03, 2007 8:14 am

The "can't be a citizen" thread mentioned various freedoms enjoyed by Americans and some talk on which is greatest. I vote for freedom of speech.

Even though such is not allowed here! As in, this may be a democracy, but I retain 51% of the vote.

Not tomorrow. In honor of July 4th, I've created a new free-speech forum that will be open for approximately 24 hours. (I'll activate it before I got to bed tonite, close it tomorrow night.)

If you wanna talk the verboten topics of politics and religion, being as partisan as you like, feel free to do so. Just don't get personal.

And this freedom extends only to topics you choose to create on the new forum. It does NOT mean topics on in the regular fora.

I think it goes without saying that this new-found freedom will not include the right to toss around baseless (or even base-some) drug accusations. That remains a third rail which will fry you. As will things that are sexist or racist.

Have fun.

A few weeks back somebody suggested that opening this up for the election made sense. So you've got a week to rant and rave all you like.

2009 free-speech window is open for a long weekend.

I stress this from the original post

I think it goes without saying that this new-found freedom will not include the right to toss around baseless (or even base-some) drug accusations. That remains a third rail which will fry you. As will things that are sexist or racist.

And let me add this: "free speech" does not include being rude to others.

2011 is up and running, as a full long weekend, not the 1-day thing as in the original version.

Please note the admonitions as set down in the thread-starting note: this "free" shit only goes so far and the hammer will be quick to fall on those who violate the precepts.
