    Freedom of speech doesn't mean what you think it means

    Avoid obscenity/vulgarity, hate speech, personal attack, advertising/spam, copyright/plariarism and "other".   It's hard for you.  Easier for others.

    It means whatever Obama wants it to mean?

    Is that closer?

     

    Just poking fun.  This is not a "free Speech" zone.  It is at the discretion of the Globe.

    The policy is completely inconsistent.  But it does appear that left leaning views when attacking the purported wingnuts is given more leeway.

    I had the nerve to respond to a columnist referring them to be a pizzant and I had my comment removed.  That was the only offending word and there were no other disguised words.

    Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose. Nothin' don't mean nothin' hon' if it ain't free.

    Feelin' good was good enough for me. Good enough for me and my Bobbie McGee.

    In response to airborne-rgr's comment:

    As much as the conspiracy nutjobs want to believe it, the fact is that there are no censors constantly monitoring these boards, at least if they use industry norms and web-based programming models.

    I've built interactive websites for companies ranging from Mom & Pop's to CocaCola and Ford.

    None of them have full-time dedicated 'censors' constantly patrolling blog posts or discussion boards. It's impractical and much less efficient than good programming and software. The manpower it would take to directly monitor the hundreds of simultaneous threads and comments sections on a site like boston.com would be astounding and beyond cost prohibitive. The built in list of banned words is the primary buffer and is constantly updated as people get more creative in spelling.

    The fact is that the vast majority, probably in the 99% range, of posts that are pulled are due to people hit the 'report' button. The other 1% may come from particular user names having been repeatedly 'reported' by other users or if they constantly are running up against the built-in editor. The granularity of how closely a board is monitored is based on software and the report button, not a bunch of people sitting in cubicles reading every word as it gets posted.

    Sorry but your posts aren't just worth that effort.

     




    Good thing  'wacko wingnut' isnt on the list of banned words....95% of your posts would be gone!

    Interestingly, freedom of the press does not apply to the press.

     

     




     

    Wow, seriously?

    You think posting on some anonymous board hosted by a media company now makes you part of the 'press'?

    Heh, heh, heh... ya sorry that the people at BDC don't cede to your "freedom of the press by anonymous association" rights.



    You are such a buzz kill.

    here we were, just having some fun poking fun at ourselves, and you got to get all up in our grill.

    where is that "report abuse" button?
