Freedom?!

Hello tribers, after a rather lengthy and tiresome debate. I've come to you today with a very serious question that I happen to be passionate about. How do you feel about freedom of speech? Long story short my girlfriend was being harrassed by some random sexist idiot on the internet... Big surprise those guys are still around. But in the process of the discussion she got to talking about how they should censor the internet for people like him. It's at this point that I stopped agreeing with her.

 

 

 

Sure we all have things that we don't want to hear, that we don't agree with, and that we just flat out want to give whomever may be making these statements a swift kick in the buttocks. But I don't believe we should go all out and start censoring things we don't want to hear. I'm in the camp of defend it all or give it up. If you want true freedom of speech then you have to put up with a jackass or two. It's a crap situation but I'll gladly make that sacrifice to make certain that nobody tries to trample on my rights by using that random idiot as an example of why their case is no different. Thoughts?

 

 

 

And more artful thingies shall be along the way shortly :)

 Grounds for some new Internet jargon: RSI (Random Sexist Idiot) lol. I say let them be. How else would we know that the that not so random person is not only a sexist but an idiot as well? Let them rat themselves out. Or they'll simply disappear into the woodwork. Where's the artful thingies at?
