so my conclusion is that my views offend you.
Oh and for the record, i'm Scottish not American.
My opinion doesn't affect you either and you've still got your hackles up about the discussion.
I don't agree with control, whether other countries do it or not or whether it's one url or not.
If they have laws saying blasphemy is illegal then they've got the right to block it. Doesn't mean i have to agree with it. I'm still entitled to my opinion.

I'm not going to implode and feel like I have to ridicule your national background and/or culture with degenerative cartoon satire to get some measure of cheap satisfaction, like a two school kids punching each other in the arm.
Did I even ask? What's that got to the do with it?
Funny, if you're so much for Internet Democracy why don't you make a fuss about the UK's Digital Economy Bill?
I can't help but think you really don't have any concern for freedom, much less Muslims...

Well that the different between drawing a normal picture and one that you intentionally make offensive. I'm not advocating intentionally offensive behaviour (although everyone seems to keep implying that i am), i'm all for being able to draw him a normal fashion if you so wish. After skajkingdom mentioning the content was bad i'll be avoiding it.
Rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths: What their hearts conceal is far worse.

why americans are stupid?
because they think they have freedom of speech.
but a few days earlier an autistic 14 year old was going to be charged for a few stickman sketches because he had drawn himself point a gun at his teacher.
?? who hasnt done that, everyone hates thier teacher at some point and as children we draw to express how we felt.
now where is the freedom of speech/expression here??
freedom of speech has nothing to do with drawing muhammed, you may have realised that all of the people who drew muhammed are either anti religion or anti islam and they come with an agenda... they start the problem then get you to fight it with them in the name of freedom.
unlike the christians who have lost thier dignity, the muslims dont draw thier own prophet, nor any other prophet in that case. the christians drew jesus in every shape and form. here the good part, the muslims will simply not allow the people who do it to get away. they have faith, and i respect that more than i respect the guy who drew the silly childish cartoons.
