Thanks for the "welcome back", redrabid.
I see this thread has been well and truly hijacked, and I am partly to blame; so be it.
While I heartily support freedom of speech, in general, there are limits. Sometimes the limits are brought about by common sense (not yelling "fire" in a crowded theatre, etc.) and sometimes they are brought about by the rules of the situation, in this case the Forum. Did our Administrator not say, "Having fun is good. We like fun. Please keep it positive and polite. We may take action against posts and/or topics that could cause unrest in the community beyond a civil and polite disagreement."? By objecting to racist and intolerant posts I am just trying to follow the rules of this forum, and I expect others to do so as well. (I know, that is probably naive...) Racist comments, about Moslims or anybody else, do not belong here, in my opinion. Posts that call others "stupid" and homophobic do not belong here, either. Therefore I do believe that a certain amount of surgically-applied censorship is called for. There are other places on the web, as well as out in the streets, where one can say whatever one feels like, even if it's nasty and false. I hope this doesn't turn into a place like that. If it does, I'm outta here. One more thing, and then I'm off my soap box: "self-censorship" is not necessarily a bad thing. It just may describe "restraint" and "civility" and "politeness". Isn't the legacy of Jefferson Airplane a generally positive one? Shouldn't the official web site be positive as well?
Back to Paul McCartney (finally). "Love Is All You Need."
