I respect you and all, but just so you know- the First Amendment doesn't apply when you're on a message board run privately. It's more like you're in someone else's house; you can't really go to a stranger's house, start trouble, and then shout "First Amendment! First Amendment!" when you get kicked out.Quill20 said:First Amendment Rights!!!

Of course, I don't think anyone would argue with you on that. However, administrators of public forums (on or offline) are charged with a certain civic responsibility to uphold the spirit of the first amendment. It's no law, it's no requirement, and by god, it certainly isn't a big deal. However, it's a pretty nice thing to do.Blackjack said:I am a bit cynical, I suppose. That doesn't make it any less of a truth, though, that First Amendment rights (or any, for that matter) are dealt with at the whim of the board's administration.
