AMEN ;-D


Come on now. Censorship still has it's place. What would happen if I listed the 7 words here?

Offhand I'd say we'd see forty years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanoes, the dead rising from the grave, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... in short, mass hysteria!

I would laugh and if I was offended, I would close the thread and not re open it.

I could care less if the guy really is racist and wants to tell the world. That is his opinion and while I don't share it, I would fight for his right to share it.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


I didn't see in there where it says it is ok to stop someone from free speech because someone else was offended. The only time speech should be prohibited is in the case of fighting words or saying something that would cause someone else physical harm ie. fire in a movie theater

edit -- In regard to a place like here, it is Mad's business and thus he may make rules to stop people from using certain words, and as a business owner that is the man's right. You can not be here if you don't want to follow the rules. The same can be said for whatever station Imus is employed by, if they don't want to be associated than they can fire him.

Didn't the full list grow to over 50 words? I remember hearing him do an extended version of that bit, I believe.

Is Madison really the owner here? I thought he was just one of the main mods. I didn't realize he got paid for it.
