Thank you, this clarifies perfectly. "Privilege" and "T&C" means speech is subjectively ruled on by individuals that manage the site. IMO there should be an asterisk next to any "we support free speech here" that proclaims free speech yet falls back on their own rules to subjectively remove content and censor. I don't a recap of all the reasons why you do this, I understand it's a business and very personal to ownership.

If there aren't already, I'd be interested in hearing from site owners about all the pitfalls and management hassles they get over free speech and how much of if it is internally driven. I'm always curious how companies shape information.

Wouldn't it be interesting to see stats and specifics on what exactly was removed, when and why for everyone to see?
