  • #21 ✎ 322 RNGesus Let's just close this thread with a conversation with me and random. The explanation of why there aren't any rules is in the conversation. Note: This isn't the actual conversation. this has had some minor edits but nothing major. HylianHoundoom Random, why don't you set up a democracy? randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ Because it doesn't work HylianHoundoom Why not? randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ Look, I'm sorry if people don't agree with your religion. But this isn't about you, this is about controlling something that isn't controllable HylianHoundoom No, this isn't just about bashing on religion. This is setting up a rule-set so people can act like human beings instead of jerks randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ Setting rules doesn't make people magically stop being jerks HylianHoundoom I know that, but it gets things better randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ And people have different ideas of who is the jerk. Usually a mod will ban BOTH of the people involved in an argument. Both sides view the other side as a jerk It's the same no matter what side you're on and no matter what the argument is about So no, rules aren't going to change anything. I'm sorry HylianHoundoom I would like to know exactly why they won't work. randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ There's a reason we have freedom of speech in the United States. If you don't let people say what they want, they go crazy And it's never "fair" HylianHoundoom Yes, but sometimes the freedom of speech can also interfere with other people's rights which is against the law. randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ Such as? HylianHoundoom The Supreme Court has recognized that the government may prohibit some speech that may cause a breach of the peace or cause violence. randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ Have you seen it enforced? HylianHoundoom law.cornell.edu/wex/first_amendment read that or skim it, like i did randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ Nothing in this chat can incite violence or disrupt peace. This is simply text on a screen Please realize that these aren't even spoken words HylianHoundoom But its an offical site from a law school randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ I didn't say the amendment is bad HylianHoundoom The right to petition the government for a redress of grievances guarantees people the right to ask the government to provide relief for a wrong through the courts (litigation) or other governmental action. It works with the right of assembly by allowing people to join together and seek change from the government. randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ OK, I'll make it simple I'm not making rules, sorry HylianHoundoom I'm petitioning my grievances randomouscrap☆☆☆☆☆ I'm not adding rules to the chat, I'm sorry.

  • #24 ✎ 30 AGAaron I imagine whenever censorship is applied, I'd be one of the first to go over any religious debacle. I'm not one to make exceptions to free speech and I think it even counter-productive to protect the overly-sensitive. In other words, I'm quite happy with Random's decision. Posted
