People are fired from their jobs, ridiculed and so on, death threats etc. All these things are real world consequences from thoughts, ppl have the power to influence from a keyboard.
People have always picked apart every word spoken in public by people that didn't like the speaker or the words, speaking in public has always come at a risk to your employment or station in life. Always. I'm not saying it's right, just that it's always been.
