FREE SPEECH: For those who still cannot grasp the concept

Post by eddie on Mon Sep 12, 2016 11:06 am

On this forum there are certain words banned and certain abusive behaviours that are not acceptable to the forum.  
Here we are again, with the dense among you, not understanding, that just because you don't agree with someone's point of view - it doesn't mean they have no right to say it.

So here you are. Some little picture posts so that it may sink in a little better.
If you find yourself forgetting, when you're out there posting your meaningless whine about someone posting soemthing that you don't like, (which you're entitled to do because you have free speech), then pop back here and have a little refresher.










MEMORISE THEM. UNDERSTAND THEM.

Good quotes.....some people think free speech applies only to their outlook.

I liked a quote you put up a while ago about ones mans truth isn't necessarily anothers, it depends what he has lived through....something like that anyway.

I cant find it now though.

It doesn't mean you can say any thing to any one at any time.

I also have the freedom not to talk or listen to you and pursuing me in public would be harassment.

Yes obviously Zack. We are talking about opinions on a forum.

Not that Eddie....I think I wrote that anyway. Laughing
This quote was far better put....it was in a thread, I said I agreed with it and someone gave me a red. Razz
I will have a good look later when I come back, I'm sure it was you who posted it.

I've recently reread the rules and they are pretty good.  However, I don't find any part of the rules that tell members what words are forbidden.  And here, eddie, you are verifying that this is a part of the rule and still they are unspecified.

I would like the staff to re-post the words that are prohibited.  Some people have been banned because of this part of the rules, and I think it might be wise to have a reference...or just post them in the Rules section.  I, personally, know that one banned word is "paedophile".  Another is "cunt".  What else?

Scrat. Why do you invent things? It makes you look like a toddler using his mumma's laptop.

What truth scrat? That last week we had NO moaning and little bitchy comments ALL WEEK?
Did you notice that it was you followed by someone else, that started the narky comments and this was after a week of you playing he arse?

Carry on. You're only here to make trouble, we are not stupid, none of us.
It's free speech for everyone, stupid or not.
