    It doesn't apply to private businesses or property. Never has.
    It's all Rodri's fault.

    No need to drag the wiccan community into this debate.

    No it does not. It is a corporation. They have the right to censor, ban, you for what ever they want. It is not a Public place or government owned. It does not recieve grant money etc. Like private schools you do not have the right to free speech.

    Default Debating is futile

    ...just like resistence is futile.

    The whole reason this thread exists is because there was some major uproar back in May of this year. I have no idea what it was, and I don't really feel like looking to figure it out either.

    Anyway, they're right that it is their forum and they can limit us to the point where they only allow consonants in posts on the forums on Wednesdays if they so choose.

    The question for the company though is:

    Does the right to censor make censoring the right thing to do?

    In other words, does the fact that you can mean that you should, and to what extent?

    Like I said, debating this is futile, so I'll just leave it at that...

    Besides that, free speech is limited to that which harms no others.

    From a practical perspective, consider: You have the ability to type whatever you want in the little box here. The automatic censor has the ability to change it in mysterious ways, objecting to such words as * and *. Finally, the mods have the ability to remove your post - or you.

    And you have the right to sue them over this. You'll lose, but you can sue.

    And then... imagine winning. Evony would simply shut down the Forums, or make them private and by invitation.

    But you'd lose. Why? Because this is NOT public; it's private. It just looks public.

    Nor can I.

    I thought this had been long established that Evony is not really a world and the countries are not real, meaning that there is no freedom of speech.

    Then again...
