I don't think I ever saw this section. If I read it when I first joined, I would not think it meant the literal freedom of speech. I would have thought it meant what I was taught it meant as a kid.

Which is?



It means you have a right to your own opinion, right to your own beliefs, right to protest (as long as you are not disturbing the piece and trespassing, damaging any property) and disagree. It does not mean you can be rude and nasty, bully, slander, etc. Yep my mother taught me to treat people with respect. She even get mad at me when I bully other bullies but that rule never made sense why I had to be nice to them too. But then she turns around one day and tells me how to stand up to one of my bullies by telling him to look the words "stupid" "dumb" "idiot" and "ugly" in the dictionary and it has a picture of him. She also did the same with my other friend who was now my former friend. I don't know why it all of a sudden came okay to do that to bullies but before I couldn't even bug them.

But it seems like lot of people think freedom of speech gives them the right to bully and be mean, slander, etc. and I say they take it too literal and my shrink agrees and so do some of my online friends and my mother I have told so far. But when I say this forum allows freedom of speech, I always add the word "literally."

It's a shame McJ isn't around anymore.

You wouldn't survive it.

I think that if anything the opposite holds true.

Actually, neither. You are the one looking for empty drama, not me *or* McJ.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

I like and respect Odeon and Callaway, but, they are sooooooooooooo weak, when it comes to will power and resistance.  THAT is WHY trolls are ever ascendant!

Very right, about O. Callaway did a pretty good job of simply ignoring
most of it, once she realized she couldn't win. But, half-assed fighting
is far worse than either other alternative. Ignoring is FAR better, for those
too self-absorbed to learn anything.

You are the one who put Randy on Ignore and then read and responded to his posts anyway.

Yes, and that was before my latest resolution.  One I intend to keep.
