“And that’s how all internet communities should run.”

People have this bizarre desire of freedom of speech in (internet) communities.

They mix freedom of speech with freedom of harassing, or freedom to disturb.  And that’s really two different things.

Yes, you have the freedom to go protest on the street.  I have the freedom of not having you protest in my living room, or in my house.
So you can protest outside my house, but I can close the door, close the curtains, and not have to deal with it.

And that’s how all internet communities should run.

Always thought Jason was a bit of a dick, until this comment.
