Saw this on Facebook today... I love their disclaimer:
Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).
The mouseover says this about it:I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not literally illegal to express.
Don't YOU think it is?
I asked you first :D
Quoting jobseeker: Don't YOU think it is?
I have the right to say something
you have the right to call me a dumbass for believing or saying what I said.
This is so true. Every time I hear someone say something that they get blasted for, then whine about their free speech being compromised, I want to scream. Say what you want - and we will, too.
It is a notable hypocrisy, isn't it?
Quoting PamR: This is so true. Every time I hear someone say something that they get blasted for, then whine about their free speech being compromised, I want to scream. Say what you want - and we will, too.
But censorship on CM is written right into the TOS... so violating it is more or less voluntary, right?
I've never been yelled at by cops: how do you get into this situation?
Quoting quickbooksworm: Haha, I've had my freedom of speech violated on more than one occasion and there is no comparison to getting kicked out of an internet community. Having cops yell at you is a little scary while censorship of CM just makes people butthurt.
