I strongly support freedom of speech.
Freedom of expression, freedom of movement, freedom of religion, freedom of thought, freedom of spirit, freedom to live your life as you see fit... as long as it harms no one.
I honour the free will that humans have to make up their own minds, to live according to their own hearts.
Yes, I support freedom of speech. Fully.
If you disagree with me or disagree with an article I've posted or if you have a different view of an issue and wish to express your thoughts/views/ideas, I will always honour those comments that are sent to me and will post them here on the RTS site- Regardless of my personal opinion. And if you truly wish to discuss a topic, I'm always interested in open conversation and healthy debate.
Those people who come to RTS to leave comments that are void of any real content, who's prime reason to come here is to denigrate and deride myself or other commenters, then either one of two things will happen, depending on my mood and the time I have available:
1- I will automatically delete your comment
2- I will post your comment, followed by whatever reply my overly tired, somewhat grumpy, and fully sarcastic disposition feels like throwing out there.
...It is my site after all and I feel entitled to exercise my freedom of speech, and to use my freedom to delete, on those people who's capability of executing a genuine, fully thought out, and at least somewhat rational comment, is clearly lacking.
As I said, I will respect a difference of opinion and I encourage the exchanging of ideas and even open debate. But if you want to dump your toxic waste in my livingroom, I'll show you the door. Go take a crap in your own livingroom if that's what turns your crank.
