No one is restricting free speech. They are restricting hate-filled rhetoric that does nothing to further intelligent discourse on this board.
People can state their opinions about the existence or lack thereof of Jesus, God, Aliens, conspiracy theories, the merits of religion, the merits of
war, the merits of party politics, etc., without resorting to nastiness, name calling, insults, and hate.
I can disagree with you without getting nasty about it. You can disagree with me without insulting me or my beliefs. We can disagree with each other
and others on this board about any topic without resorting to language and tactics that are hateful and degrading and inflammatory.
Don't overcomplicate what the owners of this board are trying to enforce. This isn't new. It isn't hard. It isn't confusing.
Play nice and don't call anyone ugly names.
