    As much as I cant understand somebody liking a dictator, we must accept that we all have different views on issues .

    Supporting dictators is a perfectly valid (in my opinion kinda stupid - not going to explain here why, because it is the wrong place, but still valid) opinion.

    What you are suggesting here is to ban people for having their own opinion. Since the key concept of this board is to encourage freedom of speech, this cannot be done.

    SpZ, You currently can not imagine that it would be in this section, if a team of mods did not work there.

    I can honestly say that I do not understand what you are exactly saying.

    So why is swearing and insulting people forbidden? Following your logic, isn't this freedom of speech?

    I have nothing against swearing and insulting people if it carries some kind of goal (is rooted in ideology) (or well I have, but it is still freedom of speech). I support ACLU who for example has stood for the freedom of speech of neo-nazis, ku klux klan, North American Man/Boy Love Association, Westboro Baptist Church (know as anti war veterans hate group), Nation of Islam, etc...

    Well, I don't support swearing or insulting others with swear words. This "Freedom of speech" thing blinds some people into breaking all the rules of normal functioning in the society. And hate speech is banned in most nations.
