Freedom of speech is the liberty to freely say what one pleases, as well as the related liberty to hear what others have stated. Beginning in the last half of the twentieth century, it has been commonly understood as encompassing all types of expression, including art, movies, pictures, songs, dances, bodily movements and gestures, and all other forms of expressive communication.
*Such as Internet Forums*
Freedom of speech is often regarded as an integral concept in modern liberal democracies, where it is understood to outlaw censorship. Free speech is nowadays also protected by international human rights law, notably under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, although implementation remains lacking in many countries.
*The United States isn't one of them and, although I understand that MM is Canadian-owned and operated, I DO believe that the infidels north of the order also subscribe to same said Declaration.*
The right to freedom of expression is not considered unlimited; governments may still punish (but not prohibit) certain damaging types of expressions. Under international law, restrictions on free speech are required to comport with a strict three part test: they must be provided by law; pursue an aim recognized as legitimate; and they must be necessary (i.e., proportionate) for the accomplishment of that aim. Amongst the aims considered legitimate are protection of the rights and reputations of others (prevention of defamation), and the protection of national security and public order, health and morals.
*Read into all that what you wish, but MM is not, repeat NOT a government*
So ... it is not solely because of my involvement with the previous posting individual and voice of reason, but also in the interest of freedom of expression, that I bring the previous thread back from Thread Nazi Limbo. Come and get me! *Flashes finger*
Toones that was what i was talking about in one of my post. I think i quoted Fun and i had to asterick the word A*T. Think maybe they forgot how to spell their dirty words..But is is strange as it's all of a sudden. Maybe we could let them know and it will correct itself..
this is weird, i just typed the above posting and i used the pharse "at2 a.m." and MM told me the wordat" was unacceptable so i had to put a dash in instead. DUH! Be careful - didn't know they are making up their own bad words now. The only way I can type "that" word is to run it into another one! HELLO! CAN YOU SPELL STUPID!!
That's really hard to go back to ID names instead of the other but i have put my best foot forward in remembering. You know the brain goes first. Well oops i lied i boo*bood on another thread. But i will try and do better....Fun do you mind if i tag a long i need a rest......
